Tusker locally stores Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for the purposes of the app's primary functionality. Tusker may transmit PII off-device to the instance(s) of any compatible third-party service to which the user has explicitly signed-in.

Tusker uses a 3rd party service to automatically report crashes and errors that occur in the app. No data is retained for more than 30 days, and Tusker endeavors to redact any PII. Any data collected is used solely for the purpose of improving the app, and is not shared with anyone beyond the developer or the 3rd party error reporting service. Automatic data collection may be disabled within the app (Preferences → Advanced → Report Errors Automatically).
