The Gauge Calculator product family follows my general privacy philosophy.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the webpage implementing Gauge Calculator, you can read about what data is collected. For the pre-September 2016 version of this website, this website collected:
All versions of this website collect the following data:
There is no opt-out or opt-in for the data collection behavior of the Online Edition.
Version 1.0 for Windows Phone
If you have not disabled data collection, version 1.0 for the Windows Phone will report:
You can opt-out of the monitoring of normal usage and continue opting-in to crash reporting -- or vice versa.
Version 1.1 for Windows Phone
Gauge Calculator 1.1 supports sending the following data:
Note: Windows Phone has the capability of saving application data in the cloud. If you want to keep your saved gauge data or pending bug reports from being sent off your phone by this feature, you'll need to disable it using general Windows Phone functionality rather than Gauge Calculator.

Th incident reports are used to alert me that a product is behaving badly and to provide clues to the root cause of the bug.
I also use any information to gathered to help guide my priorities. If I know that certain features are being used a lot, I'll put a more effort into making sure that they work well. I'm also more likely to put a larger fraction of my efforts into adding features and products that I think would complement the kinds of things the collected data says you are doing.
