Traqq on GDPR compliance
We at Traqq understand the importance of privacy for our customers and business owners. As a company offering services in the EU, we comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law that went into effect on May 25, 2018.
Since the creation of our time tracker, we've taken all the steps necessary to meet GDPR requirements and be transparent about what we do with your data.
Below we will cover the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding our GDPR compliance policy. If you require additional assistance or clarifications, don’t hesitate to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

In general, we store your tracked data for 1 year from the date it was received on. By data we mean your time tracked, activity, blurred screenshots and blurred screen recordings. After a year, this data is automatically deleted.
Your contact information and login details are stored until your account is fully deleted per your request.

You don’t need to file a special request form to delete your data. When you delete your organization’s Traqq account, all of your data is automatically deleted within 7 days.
