Privacy Policy of ClockworkWP.com

This Application collects some Personal Data from its Users.

Note: There is a *really good chance* that we’re no collecting any of this but because of this world going crazy about legal garbage, we have included things like Facebook. We never will have a Facebook “pixel” because its annoying, but we’d rather not get sued just in case someone figures out a way to put a pixel in a comment or something like that.

Have fun reading!
