Training data

We need this information to offer you a more personal experience with the app, and in particular for the following reasons:

Whenever a user assigns a category to a transaction and if the user previously agreed, we use the data to train a better classification model and improve future categorization.
The model is updated automatically without user intervention, so no person reads the data. 
This information is important for Smart Cuts functionality, because we can offer a better categorization with every learning session.

Last imported statement

In order to fix bugs we need to see the details. Some characters in the details may cause issues, or the file might have a strange format, or there may be other reasons. We need to have all information in order to investigate the true cause and fix the problem arised. 

The statement files are stored on our development machines and deleted after the issue is fixed.

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:

  • You can switch on or off data collection in the settings menu that is available in all main screens. Please note that switching off data collection also switches off model updates, so the auto-categorization feature will not improve over time.
