What Personal Information Does Toothpicks Collect About Me?

Toothpicks collects no personal information about you. Absolutely nothing. Toothpicks and its creator, William C. Gustafson (WCG), want nothing to do with that data. All data on your Mac, and any data that you provide to Toothpicks, remains local on your Mac, and is never transmitted, sold, or otherwise made accessible to anyone other than yourself.

What Non-Personal Information Does Toothpicks Collect About Me?

Toothpicks itself does not collect any data. That said, if you have enabled Analytics → Share With App Developers in System Preferences (or enabled this when first setting up your macOS user account), Toothpicks' crash logs are shared by macOS with WCG.

You can turn off App Analytics data sharing by visiting:

 → System Preferences → Security & Privacy → Privacy → Analytics → uncheck Share with App Developers

Apple also provides sales and discovery related data to all developers who distribute apps through the Mac App Store. This data is mostly reports of units/copies sold, territory/location data, referrals, and impressions. This data is completely anonymized, and contains no personally identifying information, however. Toothpicks and WCG have no idea who you are, or what you've been doing (and they like it that way). Read more about what data is available to developers here:
