Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. Your data is your own. We make no claims to it and will only use it according to the policies outlined below.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Pedometer++ allows you to measure your daily activity. It is not transmitted outside of the app.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

No Personally-Identifying Information is transmitted to external locations when using Pedometer++.

Pedometer++ transmits non-personally identifiable information such as device type and operating system version to our servers. This is used in aggregate to help facilitate development decisions.

3rd Party Data

For non-subscribers, Pedometer++ may display advertisements within the application. These are managed by Google's AdMob system. I have configured my advertising to minimize the privacy considerations often inherit with advertising. I don't show personalized ads within the app. Additionally, I have disabled all of Google's user tracking and analytics capabilities for ads shown within Pedometer++.

HealthKit Data

If you choose to have Pedometer++ integrate with HealthKit then the application will have access only to the health data types you opt-in to access.

The health data read from HealthKit is used for display within the app. It is not collected or disclosed outside of your local installation of the app. Only those data types relevant to the app are accessed.

Pedometer++ requests permission to write certain data types into your HealthKit data store. These are used when you perform a walking workout from an Apple Watch.

In no case is your health data ever transfered to a 3rd party. It is only ever kept within the application container of Pedometer++ or transfered to your personal HealthKit data store as per your permission choices.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Pedometer++ may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
