June 2020 - Bodo is now discontinued, thank you for your support!

Your privacy is important to us.

It is Bodo’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you through our app, Bodo.

Our business is based on selling quality software. Therefore, we have no interest in selling your data or using it for sleazy purposes. In particular, Bodo will not send any of the activity data it tracks to anyone.

Google Analytics

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous — so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site. The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Other Services

Lastly, we use the following third-party providers:

Data collected when purchasing Bodo

The data you enter when purchasing Bodo (e.g. your name, email address, VAT ID etc.) are stored by our reseller Paddle.com. Please see their privacy policy and GDPR information for more information. We do not have access to your payment details (credit card etc.)

On our side we use some of the data provided by our reseller for the order fulfilment (i.e. to generate your license and to send you the e-mail with your license information). We store a copy of the generated license file in order to be able to re-send it to you and to enforce usage of the license in accordance with our terms and conditions. License files contain the license holder name, your e-mail address and the order transaction ID.

When you purchase Bodo, we also add you to our newsletter to provide you with information about Bodo updates (You can unsubscribe from that newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in any of the newsletter emails you receive from us.)

Data collected when using Bodo

Bodo connects to App Center’s servers and Paddle’s server upon startup to check whether there’s important information (e.g. a critical fix) about Bodo and to check for updates.

It also transmits your license information (including your license key, email address, and an anonymous unique identifier for your Mac), to e.g. check eligibility for free upgrades and validate your license.

In addition, Bodo sends anonymous usage data to App Center, that data is only used to collect crash reports.

Bodo sends usage data to Mixpanel. This data is about how you use Bodo itself (e.g. which part of the application is the most used, which action is performed the most), but not about any information related to your work stored in Jira. This data is linked to your email address, and name if available. The only use of this analytics is to be able to get in touch with you in order to improve Bodo.

Your Data

If you want to know which personal data we have saved about you, please reach out via our contact page.

Deletion of your Data

If you want us to delete your data, please reach out via our contact page. We will then delete all your information that we are not required to retain due to e.g. invoicing laws. Deleted information may be kept in backups for up to 90 days. Backups are encrypted and are only accessed if needed for disaster recovery.
