Time Nomad and your data
The core approach of Time Nomad is that if we don’t record your personal information.
We may use some of your anonymised data responsibly to improve Time Nomad, but that’s as far as we will ever go.
Some more details about how we use your data
All your recorded personal profile data stays local to your device and backed up on your iCloud account, meaning your personal data is never sent to Time Nomad servers.
Your optional Time Nomad add-ons purchase data is also handled by Apple via the App Store. Time Nomad doesn’t have access to the information about your personal purchases.
All financial transactions involved go through Apple’s App Store, so we never see any information about your credit card, or even your name. We quite literally have no idea who you are, unless you contact us.
How is your data shared with third parties?
Signing up for our newsletter or posting comments on timenomad.app website is completely optional. If you choose to give us your email address on our mailing list signup form or comment entry form, your email will be sent to our newsletter service provider so we can email you occasionally. The newsletter is for informational purposes only, and will not be used to sell third-party products or services. We may, however, occasionally inform you of offers for our own products. Again, this newsletter service is completely optional. Time Nomad will behave no differently if you never sign up for the newsletter.
If you email support to ask for assistance, your email address and our conversations are not shared with anybody.
At your request, we will gladly delete your email and all historical conversations we have had during customer support transactions. We will never share any of those transactions with anyone else, unless you explicitly permit us to do so.
How is your data used inside Time Nomad?
If you email us with a problem, we may ask you to provide some of your profile details or screenshots, as needed to assist with the problem. This data will only be used to help you solve your issue.
Time Nomad uses your iCloud account to back up your data and make it available across all your iOS and macOS devices. This data is stored by Apple in a secure location that we cannot access. Only your devices logged into your AppleID will ever have access to this data.
If you wish to permanently delete all of your iCloud data stored by Time Nomad, please use “Import/Export Data” function of Time Nomad app and then choose “Delete my data”.

Anonymous data captured in-app to improve Time Nomad
Beyond what has been outlined above, there is some anonymous/pseudonymous usage data Time Nomad tracks in-app. None of this data can be directly linked to you, or reveal anything you record with Time Nomad in any identifiable way.
Our tracking doesn’t get access to any of your personal profile and data; only high level events about what is happening in the app.
We do this so we can track popularity of features and prioritise improvements.
Time Nomad also uses a crash reporter to aggregate and track crashes. These reports include non-identifiable information such as what iOS device you have, where the crash occurred, some logs we create to help track down what happened, and an installation unique identifier to help correlate how many users experienced the crash vs repeat crashes for the same user.
