Apple now requires that apps link to the developer’s “privacy policy”.

First some terms. “RegExRX” means any version of the RegExRX application. “Mac App Store version” means the version of RegExRX that is available exclusively through the Mac App Store. “Standalone version” means the version of RegExRX that is available through the Downloads page on this site. “This site” means the MacTechnologies Consulting web site and its related pages, but excludes any other sites that may be referenced or linked.

So here is the policy in a nutshell: RegExRX does not collect data. Not personal data, not anonymous data, not at all. Period.

The only interaction the Mac App Store version permits outside your machine is downloading the Samples from this site, and that is done entirely anonymously the same as if you had visited this site through a browser and clicked the download link yourself.

The standalone version does that too, but also checks for updates and brings you to this site as a convenience.

This site may collect anonymous data that is used entirely for analytics and the like. This information is not disseminated to anyone else for any reason. The site’s host (GoDaddy) may or may not collect data that is outside our control so see their policies for additional information.

Registrations of the standalone version are logged in a database and all e-mail inquiries and responses are saved, but none of this is made available to any third party for any reason.

No credit card or other financial data is collected at any time. No medical or other personal data either beyond what is submitted via email or during the standalone registration process. In other words, if you choose to reveal your mother’s maiden name or social security number while requesting help, it will be saved in our archives, but it’s not going anywhere else. (This is strongly discouraged and would be a bit strange anyway.)

This policy has been in effect since the inception of MacTechnologies Consulting. While it is subject to change without notice, such changes will be clearly marked and described.
