Our business is based on selling quality software. Therefore, we have no interest in storing (let alone selling) your data.
In particular, Timing will never send any of the activity data it collects to anyone without your permission.
(Currently, it actually never sends this data anywhere, but we might offer optional opt-in synchronization in the future.)
All activity data is stored locally on your Mac, and you have full control over it.
Timing makes it easy to protect your privacy. The Timing menu item has an option to 'Pause Tracking', where no activities will be tracked. In addition, Timing makes an effort to detect Chrome or Safari incognito windows and not track them. You can also delete any activities retroactively or proactively add them to the blacklist, so they won't get tracked in the future.
Timing does connect to our server upon startup to check whether there's important information (e.g. a critical fix) about Timing and check for updates
It also transmits your license information, to e.g. check eligibility for free upgrades (we used this to automatically offer eligible users a free upgrade to Timing 2) and validate your license.
In addition, Timing sends anonymous usage data to Fabric Analytics/Crashlytics, but that data is only used to e.g. count the number of installs and collect crash reports. This is anonymous data about how you use Timing itself (e.g. which of the four main screens is used the most), but not about what Timing has tracked.
If you are still concerned about this, feel free to use a firewall like Little Snitch to block Timing's outgoing network connections.
It is also easy to uninstall Timing and erase all the data it tracked.
