Effective May 25, 2018: If you are from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for processing your Personal Information described above will depend on the Personal Information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect Personal Information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the Personal Information to perform a contract with you or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

If we collect and use your Personal Information for our legitimate interests, our interest will typically be to operate our mobile and desktop applications and communicate with you as necessary to provide our products and services to you and for our legitimate business interest.

Individuals who are residents of the EEA can object to processing of their Personal Information, ask to restrict processing of their Personal Information or request portability of their Personal Information. To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at or by mail to American Time, P.O. Box 707, Dassel, MN 55325-0707 USA.


We will never sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we do contract with third party companies to perform services on our behalf such as website analytics, order management or payment processing. These third parties are prohibited by us from using or disclosing your information for any purpose other than providing services to us, except to the extent required by law.

In the event that American Time is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or in the event of bankruptcy, we reserve the right to assign Personal Information to third parties in connection with the event.


We may use your email to send product updates, news or promotions that we believe would be of interest to you. You may choose not to receive future emails from us by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email or by sending an email to with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line.

We may still send emails in response to “Contact Us” or other forms you fill out on our website where you are directly requesting a response from us.


We use commercially reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Data. American Time provides various security strategies to effectively ensure data security of user and device. As for device and computer access, American Time proprietary algorithms are employed to ensure data isolation, access authentication and applying for authorization. As for data communication, communication using security algorithms and transmission encryption protocols and commercial level information encryption transmission based on dynamic keys are supported. As for data processing, strict data filtering and validation and complete data audit are applied. As for data storage, all confidential information of users will be safely encrypted for storage. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), immediately notify us of the problem by emailing


We process your Personal Data for the minimum period necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep the data for a longer retention period. We determine the appropriate retention period based on the amount, nature and sensitivity of your Personal Data, and after the retention period ends, we will destroy your Personal Data. When we are unable to do so for technical reasons, we will ensure that appropriate measures are put in place to prevent any further such use of your Personal Data.


We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (send to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice in the mobile or desktop applications prior to the change becoming effective.
