    What is data we collect

    Currently, the program monitors three criteria: mouse movements, mouse clicks, and keyboard keystrokes. The number of actions is recorded and displayed in the time tracker and sent to the server. Screenshots, active processes, browser windows, or other user activities are not currently being recorded.

    Data Sending Frequency

    Data from the Time Tracker application is sent to the server every 10 minutes, 6 times per hour, for example, at 09:10, 09:20, 09:30, etc. Data is only sent when the time tracker is active, based on keyboard and mouse activity.

    What time is tracked

    If you are inactive at your computer for more than 20 minutes, time tracking will stop, and the tracker will display a corresponding message. You can always resume time tracking by pressing the Start button.

    Application settings

    In the Preferences section, you can customize visual settings for the application, such as theme color and font size.

    Stored Data

    We do not store any personal data. Authentication occurs through a non-custodial wallet, so we only know your wallet address. However, Time Tracker saves and sends tracked time and user activity data to our server.

    What is a web3 wallet

    Web3 wallets are the next generation of crypto wallets designed to provide users with complete control over their digital assets. Non-custodial wallets like Metamask or TrustWallet store private keys on the user's side, and the owner takes full responsibility for storing them securely. Once a user logs into their wallet, they can view, send, or receive assets stored within it. Additionally, the wallet serves as authentication for web3 applications, such as Communa Time Tracker.

    Wallet registration

    You can register a wallet for free, and it doesn't require any cryptocurrency. Simply download your desired wallet onto your smartphone or PC and generate a unique number. Remember your password and write down the sequence of words (seed phrase) for recovery purposes. In case you forget your password or lose your smartphone, the only way to recover your wallet will be through your seed phrase.
