Most of your data is stored locally within the App on your device. We do retain information received as part of support requests and usage of the App. We may also retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to satisfy any legal requirements, including enforcing our rights and agreements and resolving disputes. We may not delete data that has been rendered completely anonymous or maintained in de-identified, aggregated form with data of other users (such as usage trend reports or other analytics data).

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks, and Year of Code shall not be responsible for the circumvention of any of the Service’s privacy settings or security measures. 


We strive to provide transparency, security, and accessibility when it comes to your personal data.

You may request a copy of your personal data from us at any time. You may also request information regarding: (1) the categories of personal information we have collected about you and categories of sources from which we collected such information; (2) specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you; (3) categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for a business purpose, and the categories of third-party recipients to whom this information was disclosed; (4) categories of personal information we have sold (as that term is defined by the CCPA), and the categories of third parties to whom the information was sold, if applicable; and (5) our business or commercial purposes for collecting or selling personal information.

You may also request that your personal data be corrected if you believe it is incorrect or incomplete, or that it be deleted entirely. We will delete your personal data upon your request if you send us a request with a description of the basis for your request; however, we may first restrict processing of your data as permitted under applicable law in order to assess your request prior to any deletion of data. We may also instruct you to delete the App if you wish to delete data that is stored solely on the App and accessible solely through your device.

Finally, you may object to our processing of your personal data, or request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. If you request that we restrict processing of your data, we will stop processing your data, but it may impact our ability to provide the Service to you, and we may still store your data as permitted under applicable law pending an assessment of your request.

We may not be able to delete your personal data except by also deleting your account, if applicable. We may not be able to accommodate a request to change or delete information if the change would violate any law or legal requirement, or if such change would cause the information to be incorrect.  

You may revoke consent to our processing activities that are based on your consent, if and when applicable. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
