Worksnaps.net records IP addresses for system administration purposes.

IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and are only used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use, except in the case of fraud.
Information gathered by Worksnaps software program
Worksnaps.net is a system that allows a work team to track time and share information for the purpose of productivity and accurate time tracking. The users who wish to track their time have a software program ("Worksnaps Client") running on their computer systems. Worsknaps Client automatically collects the following activity while a user is using the program:
- Random screenshot of the computer screen(s)
- The volume of the keyboard strokes and mouse clicks. (Worksnaps Client only records the volume, i.e., number of clicks each minute. It does not record specific key strokes.)
- The title of the active window and its corresponding executable program path. This information is recorded with a sampling mechanism, once per minute.
- Web-cam shot (if enabled)
- Operation System type and version
- IP address of the user's computer system
- Timestamps of the user's computer system
Note: Worksnaps is not a keylogging program. It does not know what you are typing; rather, it merely records the number of clicks you perform with your keyboard so to determine whether you are active or not.
These information is only available to the user himself and any other users in the system that has the permissions to view them. The permissions are provisioned before Worksnaps Client is deployed and used.
Worksnaps.net does not share the recorded information with any user on the system who does not have the permission to view them, nor share it with any party outside of the company.
Worksnaps.net may use recorded information for statistical analysis and to maintain the security of the Worksnaps.net platform.

If you choose to use or connect to third-party integrations (e.g., Basecamp, Asana, Teamwork, Redmine) through our services, such third parties may allow us to have access to and store additional information about your interaction with those services as it relates to your use of our services. Moreover, if you initiate these connections, you also understand that we will share information about you that is required to enable your use of the third-party integration through our services.

The security of your personal data is important to us. We take reasonable efforts to secure and protect the privacy, accuracy, and reliability of your information and to protect it from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use commercially reasonable methods to keep personally identifiable information securely in our database and file systems. We implement security measures as we deem appropriate and consistent with industry standards. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any information you send to us electronically. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
We make reasonable efforts to ensure that our other Service Providers have implemented physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to assist with safeguarding your personal data, and to help protect against unauthorized access and disclosure. Only our authorized personnel and our Service Providers who perform legitimate business functions for Worksnaps.net are authorized to access your personal data. Notwithstanding our efforts, the Internet has inherent security risks. Worksnaps.net cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personal data, personal searches, and other communications will always remain secure. You should take care with regard to how you handle and disclose your personal data or any username or password that you are required to use to access services on our websites.
If you close your account or cancel the services, the data automatically collected data by Worksnaps client program (see above section "Information gathered by Worksnaps software program"), will be kept for 45 days to give customers the ability to access the history if requested. After 45 days, the data will be backed up and stored in backup vault. A customer can request us to permanently delete the data by sending such request to [email protected].
