The app, does not transmit, distribute or receive any data of any kind from any sources outside of your own local area network. No personal data of any kind is collected and sent to the developer or any other third parties. The app has no access to the internet and can not communicate with any other application.

Programs Capabilities

Read and Write to hard Disk Drive

The app must be able to read and write to your hard disk or network drive, as it is required by the following features:

  • Saving your PDF exam report.
  • Saving your custom-made .shape files
  • Opening your custom-made .shape files
  • Reading from the local Access Database
  • Writing to the local Access Database

See the other applications installed on your device

The app reads your registry file to see what other software’s you have installed as the app requires you to have “Office® System Driver: Data Connectivity Components” installed for the app to function correctly. The app will therefore check that this dependency app is installed. This data is not stored or sent anywhere outside your computer.

See your current Windows User Login

When creating an account, either a student or teacher account the app will uses your current Windows login as a means of identification. As such your Windows user name will be read by the app and stored in your local database.

Associate .shape files with the app

.shape files are the custom file format used to store your own custom shapes. When you open a .shape file the app will automatically launch and read this custom file. As such a file association is made to do this.

Go in full screen

When you start an exam, the app will go into a full screen mode covering up the task bar and all other applications. This is to prevent you from cheating inside of the exam. You can easily exit full screen at any time by ending the exam.

Launch your web browser and navigate to a page

If you attempt to report a bug or suggest a new feature the program has the ability to launch your web browser and navigate to the GitHub® website.

What can the program not do?

  • The app does NOT have the ability to launch without explicit user consent.
  • The app does NOT run in the background after being closed.

Telemetry Data

Like many programs we gather telemetry data to try and improve our program. We collect two main types of telemetry data, this includes device information & program usage and also crash logs & error rates. None of the data we collect is personal, so it can not be used to personally identify you. However, you can always choose to opt out of all or some of the telemetry if you wish via the program settings.

Device Information & Program Usage

The device information we collect includes, total number of program users each day, average time spent on the program, type of device used, operating system, country of origin, language and what version of the program people are using. As previously aforementioned all data is non-personal and anonymised.

Crash Logs & Error Rates

In addition we collect crash data, this includes how often people are crashing, what part of the program crashed and what the user was doing when it crashed. The only information sent is data directly related to the program, no other data is sent. We also collect error rates, recording every time an error message is displayed and why. This data can be very useful in fixing bugs and issues in the program which we may have not detected. Allowing us to build a more reliable and stable program for future updates.
