Apple App Store Privacy
For some time now, we also offer our project management software Merlin Project in Apple's App Stores for Mac and iOS. Increasingly often we receive the question what information Apple passes on from the subscribers of our app to us developers.
Apple does not share personal data of a customer
Apple's systems are designed to include very robust data authorization rules. These are also reviewed in the rigorous review process before any new version of an app is approved. Apple has been adding the App Privacy section to the product pages in the App Store for some time now for better visibility. There, you can learn about some of the types of data the app may collect and whether that data is linked to you or used to track you. Learn more about privacy settings on Apple's privacy page.
As the developer of the software, we only know which product was purchased, when, and in which country. The result is that we do not know the buyers and subscribers of our software. We do not know if you have subscribed to Merlin Project, Merlin Project Express, the Mac or iPad version, or even multiple products. We also don't have access to subscription management and billing, as Apple handles this completely.
If you ever need help with an application, please let us know which product you are using, this will save you us asking.
