Revised Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Updated

Hey all Togglers,

The last time our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy were edited was in August 2012. Toggl has grown greatly since then and so we took another look at these documents as well.

In short, in the revised versions we have clarified what a workspace is and who owns the rights to the data that is recorded into the workspace.

Please familiarize yourself with the full revised versions at https://new.toggl.com/terms for Terms of Service and https://new.toggl.com/privacy for the Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

  1. As above: a layperson summary of who owns the information and what happens to it once either the owner of the account or toggl itself terminate the contract (e.g. with toggl folding for any reason) would be good. Thank you 🙂

  2. ““Workspace” is the actual workspace where all time tracking data is saved into. The rights to the data in the workspace are owned by the workspace administrators, whoever they might be at the time of questioning.”

    Hi Liisa,

    Can you point us to the section in the TOS that states what you just mentioned – I have searched around and I cannot see this language. Thanks.

  3. Hey,
    We separated the terms “customer” and “workspace”. “Customer” now refers to the actual person who is using Toggl and the data related to their person by which they can be identified (name, email address, company information). “Workspace” is the actual workspace where all time tracking data is saved into. The rights to the data in the workspace are owned by the workspace administrators, whoever they might be at the time of questioning.

  4. Since my company pays for this service (as opposed to Facebook where anyone with one finger and a computer can use it for free, or those that choose to use Toggl for free), it is not unreasonable to have clear understanding who owns the data – my company or Toggl.

  5. Please provide a summary of the changes and say in 1-2 sentences what a workspace is and who owns the rights to the data. If you can’t sum it up, how are we supposed to understand it?

  6. Who cares, I use it everyday.
    I could care less who owns what, do you think when you post Facebook things you own that??
    Use it or don’t use it that is your choice, Toggl owns the application so they will write whatever policy they feel best suits them and their customer base.

    Peace

  7. Despite what you say, the agreement says nothing about who has ownership of the “Workspace Data” except to say that the Toggl will not get involve with any disputes over the Workspace Data. The phrase “Supplier shall not be considered a controller or processor (neither chief, responsible, authorised nor any other processor) of Workspace Data” is nice, but it does not clarify who owns the rights to the Workspace Data.

    It says nothing about the rights of the customer to the data after the customer terminates service, except to say we lose any rights we have been granted.

    As a side note, the indemnification clause has no protections for the customer if Toggl is found to infringe on someone elses’ intellectual property.

    I encourage Toggl to make the data ownership sections clear, and to make a more balanced agreement that has protections for your customers.

  8. Hi Liisa,

    Can you please be more specific? Which specific clause or clauses, sub-clause or subclauses, have you changed that relate to who owns the rights to the data in a workspace? I think this is a critical point–for me at least–in using the service. Thanks.
