Privacy is your right.

Thank you for visiting budgetimize.com. Here’s an overview of our approach to data processing, privacy and security.

To us privacy means putting you into control of your data. We will only process data to deliver a service to you. We promise we never sell your data.

Data collection

Our guiding principle is to collect only what we need. Here’s what that means in practice:

When you sign up for budgetimize, we collect your Google ID, email address or WebID depending on your login choice. That’s just so we can store your data and settings linked to you.

All data you enter into Budgetimize is stored encrypted on our servers. We promise we will never decrypt your data ourselves without your explicit permission. This data is only used to synchronize your data between all your devices and to keep a safe copy. We do not use this data for anything else. If you have chosen to login with your WebID and associated Solid Pod, we will not store any data ourselves, except for your login info. All data you enter into Budgetimize is stored inside your own Pod.

We’ll never sell your personal info to third parties.


Your rights

Your data is yours. You should control it. Send us an email any time to get a copy or remove all your data from our servers.


External partners

Building budgetimize.com on our own would not be possible. We use other services to help us deliver you budgetimize.com.

We use Cloudflare to host the actual website and deliver you all content served on the budgetimize.com domain. Data stored at Cloudflare can be stored in any of the many datacenters Cloudflare has around the world. Cloudflare collects statistics about the number of requests. You can review Cloudflare's privacy policy here.

We use Google Cloud to store your data and synchronize it between all your devices. Your financial data stored here is encrypted with AES-256 using an encryption key stored with Cloudflare. Google never has access to this key. Data stored at Google Cloud can be stored in any Google Datacenter within member states of the European Union. We use Firebase Analytics to gather statistics and crash reports for the Android app. You can review Google's privacy policy here.

We use Stripe for accepting payments. For paying customers, Stripe collects your email and payment information like your credit card number. You can review Stripe's privacy policy here.


Is your personal data secure?

Your data is securely stored on the Google Cloud. We also make use of the latest security best practices and will continue to do so. If we make a mistake we will own it and ensure we don't make it again.


Will we update our privacy policy?

We almost certainly will. We plan to keep growing our business. As that happens, how we use data will evolve, as long as it aligns to our core values.
