CompareData Privacy Policy

CompareData application, henceforth app or application, does not collect nor transmit user private data. User, however, must use caution not to transmit potentially private data as part of comparing and/or synchronizing database data as noted below in Comparing Data and Synchronizing data.

Comparing Data

When user compares database data between two databases, data may be retrieved over the network and/or cloud. User is responsible for the security of the data retrieved over the network and/or cloud by using SSL encrypted ODBC data sources, as appropriate, for the data sources.

Synchronizing Data

When user synchronizes database data, directly using the application data source connections, or by generating sql scripts, user is responsible for ensuring the security of the data retrieved/transmitted over the network/cloud and/or the generated sql scripts by using SSL encrypted ODBC data sources and by safeguarding generated sql scripts, if any, if the scripts contain private information.

Data Source Login ID and Password

When setting up an application data source, user may enter a Login ID and/or password (i.e, credentials) in which case the credentials are saved by the application in encrypted form on the local machine. Only the Windows user who set up the CompareData application data source can decrypt the data source credentials, if any.

Conneting to Databases

If a database Login ID and/or password is required to connect to the database of a data source, user is responsible for using SSL encrypted ODBC data source for the connection, if appropriate, to ensure the security of Login ID and/or password, if any, that may be transmitted to the database over the network/cloud for user authentication.

Application Repository

The application repository, henceforth repository, stores user comparison and synchronization metadata, settings, ad hoc queries and scripts. User is responsible for safeguardig the repository database if user stores any private information as part of a comparison and/or synchroniation script or ad hoc scripts. CompareData does not store data sources database data in the application repository.

Check for Update

On application first startup, the application checks for application update by reading information from internet url to ensure the application is up-to-date. No private information is transmitted over the internet when application checks for update.

Henceforth, the application, by default, checks for application update weekly. If you prefer to check for application update manually, you can turn off the application automatic check for update using the application Tools, Options menu and check for application update using Help, Check for Update menu or visiting the application webpage.
