Hours Time Tracking Privacy Policy


Hours Time Tracking, operated by Hours, LLC, located at 5046 Kiowa Dr Frisco, TX 75034, ("Hours Time Tracking," "we," or "our") recognizes the importance of your personal privacy.  Therefore, we have created this Privacy Policy so that you know how we use and disclose your information when you make it available to us.  The Privacy Policy below discloses our practices regarding information collection and usage for the the website located at www.hourstimetracking.com, the related mobile website, the mobile application called Hours Time Tracking (the “Mobile App”), and the software-as-a-service available for download at www.hoursforteams.com (collectively, the “Software”) and the service thereon (the “Service”).

By using or accessing the Software or the Service or participating in our services, you signify your agreement to be bound by our Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE OUR SERVICE OR PARTICIPATE IN OUR SERVICES.

Key aspects of our privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy include the following explanations:

Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect:

We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You may be required to submit certain personally identifiable information when you register on the Service. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include, without limitation:

Non-Personal Or Aggregate Information That We Collect:

When you access our Service or use the Hours Time Tracking services, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing habits on the Service and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular state) in a manner which does not identify any one individual.   We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Service or use of our services, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.

It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information.  While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists.  If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at support@hourstimetracking.com.

Information Usage:

We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:

Non-personally-identifiable or aggregate personally identifiable information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.

Cookies and Similar Technologies:

“Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer and mobile device by a service for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with that service. Many services use cookies for these purposes.  We may use cookies (and similar items such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) on our Service to customize your visit and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our Service.  We may also use and place cookies (and similar items) on your computer and/or mobile device from our third party service providers in connection with the Service, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyze Service usage, as described more fully below.  In addition, our advertisers and business partners may set cookies and similar items on your computer and/or mobile device when you use our Service.  You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer and/or mobile device or clear them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our Service, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. Cookies and similar items are not used by us to automatically retrieve personally identifiable information from your computer without your knowledge.

If you delete your cookies, change browsers or use a different cookie, our cookie (or an opt-out cookie) may no longer work and you will have to reinput (or opt-out) again.

 

Analytics and Conversion Tracking:

We use analytics services (the “Analytics Services”) that use cookies, javascript and similar technologies to help us analyze how users use the Service. The information generated by the Analytics Services about your use of the Service (including your IP address or a truncated version of your IP address) is transmitted to and stored by analytics service providers on their servers. Those service providers will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your, and other users’, use of the Service, compiling reports for us on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. 

 

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and in order to create reports. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

The Analytics Services may use first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We may then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site. 

Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page. 

The Analytics Services collect information anonymously. They report website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of the Analytics Services without affecting how you visit our site. For more information on opting out of being tracked by the Analytics Services, send an email to support@hourstimetracking.com requesting further information.

Security:

The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect your personally identifiable information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access.  However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Service and Hours Time Tracking services demonstrates your assumption of this risk.  We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personally identifiable information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/privacy.

Information That You Voluntarily Provide:

Any information that you upload into the Software will be stored on the Software for your own use. For example, any time tracking information that you upload will be stored on the Software so that you have access to it. We will not use this information for our own purposes, except that we may aggregate and anonymize such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

You should be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey, may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions.  We are unable to control such uses of your personally identifiable information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes.

If you choose to connect with a social networking service, such as Facebook, we may share information with that service, and that service may share information about you with us.

Protection for Children:

We generally do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.  If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from children under 13, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA.  When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

Other Services:

As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party Services from within our Service. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites.  When you link away from our Service, you do so at your own risk.

Changes to this Privacy Policy:

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time.  However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personally identifiable information in a way that materially differs from this Privacy Policy, including sharing such information with more third parties, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses.  Your continued use of the Service and our services following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept such changes.

 

Opt-Out Process:

To unsubscribe or opt-out from emails, you may click the “unsubscribe” link in any email and we will process your request within a reasonable time after receipt. However, we are not responsible for, and in some cases we are incapable of, removing your personally identifiable information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or your consent.  You should contact such third parties directly.
