FAQ

Why does Charity Jar need to track the number of steps I take?

To automatically track your number of steps, Charity Jar must receive a daily background notification from the Health app, which only contains the number of steps you took for the day.

If you’re concerned about privacy, know that we are too. Health data is stored on your physical phone in a secure place that other apps cannot touch. Charity Jar never sends that health data over the internet and I personally never see that data, by design. Your health data is your private data and I have no desire to collect it or sell it to anybody.

When you delete Charity Jar from your phone, that health data is gone forever. For more details, read through Charity Jar’s Privacy Policy.
