Mactracker may request access to certain personal information when you utilize certain features of the Mac app.
- Mactracker requires access to Contacts if you would like to associate a contact with an entry in "My Models". Mactracker may also ask for access if you are opening a model that previously had a contact associated.
When you associate a contact, the contact's universally unique identifier (UUID) is stored with the remainder of the "My Models" data in a preference file on your Mac. This identifier is stored solely on your device. You can revoke Mactracker's permission to access your Contacts in the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences.
By default, Mactracker periodically checks to see if a newer version of the app is available. This request is sent by https (version 7.5.4 and later) and contains the current version and your preferred language. This information is necessary to provide the correct update version. You may turn off this feature from the preferences window. If you downloaded Mactracker from the Mac App Store, this process is managed by the operating system.
Mactracker utilizes Apple's App Analytics to understand the app's engagement and usage. Data is provided if you have opted-in to share analytics, diagnostics, and usage information with App Developers in your device's settings. Apple collects this information anonymously. You can opt-in (or out) by following the instructions: Share analytics, diagnostics, and usage information with Apple
