Privacy Policy and EULA

Privacy Policy

  • The application does not track usage data other than the number of messages filed by the application. This information resides on-device and is never transmitted over the network.

  • The app does not know your location or ask for permission to know your location.

  • Licensing uses either one of two methods:

    • Mac App Store

    • Gumroad

      • The direct distribution version of MsgFiler utilizes Gumroad for payment processing. Upon purchase, Gumroad provides a license key, which users need to enter in our app. Our app displays the license key, email used for the purchase, and the purchase date for verification and support purposes. MsgFiler does not store the email address permanently; it is retained only temporarily in memory. The processing of transaction data is governed by Gumroad’s privacy policy, available here. By using the direct distribution version of MsgFiler and entering the provided license key, you consent to these data practices.

End User License Agreement

The MsgFiler End User License Agreement (EULA) is supplementary to Apple's Standard End User License Agreement, which can be reviewed here:

Pro and free features

  • The application has free and paid (“Pro”) features. Free features are free to use. Purchasing a license is not required to use these. Pro features are available with a Lifetime Unlock or Inbox Organizer subscription plan (where available).

Trial Period

  • The app does not come with a trial period. Pro features can be used on a limited basis without a license, but the app will periodically inform you that you should pay to get unlimited access to these features.

  • This freemium mode is not designed to be a means to avoid paying for a license. Rather, it is designed to allow you to evaluate the application beyond the typical time given to software trials. Using it beyond a reasonable amount of time to evaluate the app is counter-productive to the app’s goal of saving you time filing your email and organizing your mailboxes.

Pro license price and purchase process

The app is sold and distributed via two channels:

  • Mac App Store

    • Apple provides the in-app and online purchase experience, handling invoicing, payment methods, license management, activations, and refunds.

    • The app is offered here via a one-time in-app purchase or via an auto-renewing monthly or annual subscription plan.

    • Your credit card on file will be charged to your iTunes Account once you confirm your purchase. If you purchased an Annual Membership or Monthly Subscription plan, your iTunes account will be charged again when your subscription automatically renews at the end of your current subscription period unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage or turn off auto-renew in your Apple ID Account Settings any time after purchase.

  • Gumroad

    • Gumroad provides the online purchase experience, handling invoicing, payment methods, license management, activations, and refunds.

Pro license conditions for home users

  • If the license is purchased via the Mac App Store, a single license can be used on all Macs tied to the same Apple ID used to purchase the app.

  • If the license is purchased via Gumroad, a single license key is meant to be used on up to 5 Macs owned by the purchaser.

Pro license conditions for business users

  • Businesses that would like to use the app in any way beyond a reasonable evaluation period are required to buy a Pro license. This is not enforced by the app, however, and businesses are asked to comply with the terms laid out here.

  • If you need volume licensing for more than 5 users, contact me.

  • Non-profits, charities, etc. are not considered businesses.

Refund policy

  • Refunds to purchases made via the Mac App Store are handled by Apple. Please refer to the following link for more information.

  • Purchases made via Gumroad are final and there are no refunds. By downloading the app, your agree to lose the right to withdrawal after a purchase. Gumroad has additional details about refunds on this page.

Compatibility Issues

  • The app is heavily dependent on the platform (macOS), Apple Mail, and AppleScript. Sometimes Apple makes changes to these components which may affect the operation of the app.

  • There are a number of email setups, and it cannot be guaranteed that the app will work properly for your specific email configuration. As such, you are advised to use the app in Freemium mode to evaluate its suitability for your workflow prior to making a purchasing decision.

  • Incompatibility issues are not grounds for refunds.

Disclaimer of Warranties

  • By using this app, you agree to release, indemnify, and hold harmless the developer from any claims, damages, losses, liabilities, and all costs and expenses of defense, including but not limited to, attorneys' fees, resulting directly or indirectly from a claim by a third party that arises in connection with your use of this app.

Changes to This Policy

We reserve the right to modify these terms and privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently.
