Tracking and Ads

We use Google Analytics on our webpage to gather information about how you and others interact with our Web site. For example, we will know how many users access a specific areas or features within our site and which links or ads they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how our site is used, improve our marketing efforts, and provide content and features that are of interest to you. We do not knowingly store personal information, and we currently do not offer a way for you to opt out of this tracking. You do not need to use the Half Staff App website in order to use the mobile app.


The security of your personal information is important to us. Versions of the app prior to 1.2 did not use HTTPS encryption to transmit data. However, beginning in version 1.2, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.

Deleted information may be kept in backups for up to 90 days. Backups are encrypted and are only accessed if needed for disaster recovery.
