Last updated: Aug 1, 2018

2018 Quarterly Tax Estimator operates by Jon Paul Miles and is available on the App Store®, Mac App Store℠, and Google Play. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the App.

We use your information collected only for providing and improving the App. By using the App, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection And Use

While using our App, we may receive non-personally identifiable demographic information and Log Data that will be used for

Tax data privacy

Dealing with federal taxes involves sensitive information and it's important to us that your information remains secure and only available to you. Information you input into the App such as:

remains solely on your device and never goes to an external server. This means we in no way have access to it.

Because of this we are unable to sync your data to multiple devices and your data will be erased when you uninstall the App.


However, with your permission we can enable you to make manual backups of your data that can be imported into other devices with the App installed. Backups are fully and solely in your possession and may saved in case of a data loss or an uninstall. On a Mac®, you may choose the location of the install. On mobile devices it is downloaded to the device's downloads folder. On mobile devices, if you have an email client setup on your device you will also be able to email this backup to yourself or anyone you choose.

Possibilty of servers in the future

We may in a future add secure servers where only you and users you approve will have access to your data to make this process of saving and accessing your data more convenient. We will announce these changes in the update notes for the release on the App Store, Mac App Store, and Google Play at the time of it's release and in our privacy policy here. If the auto-update apps setting is turned off on your device you may choose not to upgrade.

Type of data we collect

Log Data

Like many App operators, we collect information that your device sends whenever you use our App ("Log Data").

This Log Data may include information such as the pages of our App that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

Demographic Data

We may collect non-personally identifiable demographic information from our users in aggregate form. Demographic information may include:

You will have the ability to opt-out of demographic data collection at the bottom of the "Profile" page within the App. You will also need to opt-out of the website demographic collection at the bottom of the home page of our site.

We will also respect the Limit Ad Tracking feature of iOS and not collect demographic information if it is enabled.

Third Party use

In addition, we may use third party services and individuals such as Google Analytics, Firebase, or others that collect, monitor and analyze this.

We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:


We do not use the App to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. The App is safe but not designed for children.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.


This Privacy Policy is effective as of Apr 16, 2018 and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted here.

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you are advised to check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the App after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.
