Who we are

Our website address is: https://timelinesapp.com.

The Timelines app and its accompanying services are designed to maintain the private nature of your personal journal. This privacy policy outlines what information is collected and stored by Timelines.

David Venegas (“we,” “us,” or “our”) operates the Timelines application and related websites (each, an “App” or a “Site”, respectively) and several related services (all such services, “Services”). Through our App and Services, we offer you a journaling program to record experiences (each a “post”) and, if you wish, share them with others as well.

By using the App and its provided services, you consent to the use of information as outlined in this privacy policy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Our company’s policy is to collect as little user information as possible to ensure a private user experience.

In the course of using the Sites and Services, we collect both personal and anonymous information. “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy refers to information that allows someone to identify or contact you. Examples of Personal Information include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information. “Anonymous Information” is information not associated with or inherently linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with individual persons.

Timelines” user data collection is limited to the following:

1. Visiting our website: there are analytics tracking the time duration of a visit and actions done in the website (e.g. clicks, signup).

2. Account creation: We associate an email address with your account (for password recovery and notifications only) as well as your name and password.

3. Account activity: we collect metrics of activities done in the app, like how many timelines, experiences and profiles are created, read, edited and deleted, and how many times a specific app feature is used. This is in order to provide a better user experience and to better prioritize our feature roadmap.

4. Communicating with Timelines: Your communications with Timelines, such as sales and support requests, bug reports, or feature requests are retained and may be saved by our staff.

5. Device Information: When you download the App, we may collect your device type, your wireless carrier, and your individual device ID and we associate this with your Personal Information, though we primarily use this information to support your account and provide you with Services.

6. Your content: By default, your content is private. Specific timelines and experiences may be shared to others within the Timelines application or with third party applications if you choose to do so.

7. Transactional Information: When you order Services through our App, we may collect information necessary to complete and record the transaction, though some of this information may go directly to our payment provider.

8. Other Information: We collect your other Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily as you use our App, Site and Services. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Services you are able to use.

Data Use

The App does not have any advertising on its website or App.

Mobile Services: We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our App(s) to your mobile device. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your geographic location, how you use the App(s), and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our App(s) crash on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our App(s). This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.

We will use your Personal Information to:

• Provide you with Services and customer support;

• Market our products and services to you that we believe may be of interest to you;

• Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;

• Improve the quality of the Sites and the Services; and

• Communicate with you about the Sites and the Services.

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you.

We will communicate with you primarily in the form of push alerts and emails. You can manage the frequency and/or opt out of receiving these communications by changing your settings on the App and/or clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you Site and Services related communications (e.g., emails related to your account or the App).
