Privacy Policy for the PAL Chrome Extension

PAL is developed to monitor computer usage and recommend timely breathing breaks. By participating in our 8-week study, you help us explore the impact of web-usage breaks on user well-being. By the end of the 8-week study, you will get $50 if you have completed all weekly 10-minute surveys.

Data Collection with Emphasis on Privacy: We collect data on only category of the domain you visit and never the specific pages you navigate to within that domain. We also track when you take or decline your microbreaks. You may request you wish to withdraw from the study or remove your data at any point.

User Consent: We are committed to obtaining your informed consent before data collection. Your consent is paramount, and you can withdraw it anytime, resulting in the cessation of further data collection and the removal of your data from our servers. Please see the consent form below.

Data Handling and Protection: Data security is our priority. We implement strict measures to ensure that your information is encrypted, password-protected, and accessible only to authorized individuals. This commitment extends to the careful coding of data to prevent unauthorized access.

Data Retention and Disposal: We store data only for the duration necessary to achieve the study's objectives. Your personal information will be securely destroyed within three years post-study completion and publication of its results.

No Offline Mode: Please be advised that PAL operates exclusively with an active internet connection. This allows for accurate tracking and real-time updates, essential for the study's integrity and the functionality of the extension.
