Clockk processes your personal data under the following legal bases:

  • Legal Obligations: We process personal data when it is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, such as tax laws and other regulatory requirements.

    • To understand how our services are used so we can improve them to benefit our users.
    • To market our services to existing customers with relevant offers.

Data Recipients

At Clockk, we take your privacy seriously and share your personal data only under specific circumstances with the following categories of recipients:

  • Service Providers: We engage various service providers who assist us in meeting business operations needs, including hosting, data analysis, payment processing, information technology and related infrastructure, customer service, email delivery, and auditing services. These service providers may have access to personal data only as needed to perform their functions and are obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the data.
  • Business Partners: We may share your personal data with trusted business partners, such as integration partners and resellers, to provide you with our services. These communications are often necessary for the provision of our service to you and other legitimate purposes outlined in our policy.
  • Legal and Regulatory Authorities: We may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements. This includes complying with legal processes such as court orders, subpoenas, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Clockk, our customers, or others.
  • Affiliates: Personal data may be shared with our affiliates, meaning other companies owned by or under common ownership as Clockk. This sharing enables us to provide you with information about products and services, both related to and separate from, those offered by Clockk, which might interest you.
  • Business Transfers: In connection with a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy transaction, or other corporate reorganization, your personal data may be transferred to a successor or affiliate as part of that transaction along with other assets.
  • Professional Advisers: We may share your data with professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors, bankers, and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

International Data Transfers

Clockk is based in Canada, but we operate globally and may transfer, store, and process your personal data in countries other than your own. Given our international operations, it is important to note that these countries may have data protection laws that are different from those of your country of residence.

Safeguarding Measures:

  • Adequacy Decisions: Where we transfer personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of data protection by relevant regulatory bodies, we rely on these decisions to ensure the security of the data.
  • Standard Contractual Clauses: For transfers to countries without adequacy decisions, we use Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission or other relevant authorities to ensure that personal data transferred remains protected and secure. These clauses impose strict obligations on the recipients of your data regarding their handling and safeguarding.
  • Binding Corporate Rules: In the case of intra-company transfers across borders, we may rely on Binding Corporate Rules that have been approved by relevant data protection authorities to ensure that your data receives an adequate level of protection.
  • Privacy Shield Framework: If transferring data to the United States, we ensure that such transfers are made to entities that comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.

We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy and have implemented appropriate security measures to protect your data in the event of an international transfer.

By using our service, you understand and agree to the transfer of your personal data outside of your country of residence, where data protection laws may be different. If you have any concerns about the transfer of your personal data, please contact us at

Data Retention Period

At Clockk, we adhere to the principle of data minimization and only retain personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and processed, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Specific Retention Periods:

  • Account Information: Your personal information and details of your transactions are kept for the duration of your account being active plus a period of up to seven years thereafter to comply with accounting and tax laws.

Data Deletion:

Upon expiration of the retention periods, your personal data will be securely deleted or anonymized, so that it can no longer be linked to you. In certain circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Legal Exceptions:

In some instances, we may be required to retain your data for longer periods as required or permitted by law, particularly in the event of a legal claim or complaint.

We review our retention periods regularly to ensure that we are in compliance with legal and regulatory obligations and industry standards.

Technical Safeguards:

  • Encryption: All personal data is encrypted during transmission over the Internet using TLS (Transport Layer Security) technology and encrypted at rest when stored on our servers.

Physical Safeguards:

Administrative Measures:

  • Data Protection Training: All employees receive regular training on data protection principles, secure data handling practices, and security protocols relevant to their job functions.
  • Policies and Procedures: We maintain internal policies that dictate how personal data should be handled and protected. These policies are reviewed and updated regularly to meet our business needs and changes in regulatory requirements.
  • Regular Audits: To ensure ongoing compliance with our security practices and policies, we conduct regular audits and assessments, which are carried out internally and by third-party experts.

Incident Response and Management:

  • Incident Response Plan: We have an incident response plan in place to quickly address any data breaches or security incidents. This plan includes procedures for containment, investigation, mitigation, and notification to affected individuals and regulatory bodies as required by law.

Data Minimization and Retention:

  • We adhere to the principles of data minimization by collecting only the data necessary for the stated purposes and retaining personal data only for as long as it is needed to fulfill those purposes or as required by law.

Additional Limits on Use of Your Google User Data: Notwithstanding anything else in this Privacy Policy, if you provide Clockk access to the following types of your Google data, Clockk’s use of that data will be subject to these additional restrictions:

Clockk, specifically the Clockk Desktop app (tracker) you install on your computer, if you connect it to Google services, will read only Gmail message headers (specifically from, to, cc, and subject) and Google Calendar data (specifically event name, date, time, duration, attendees, location and description).
