We automatically collect some data when you:

  • Login to the app from any device.

You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to us.

You may use a “temporary” or “disposable” email address to anonymously register with and use the app. However, we cannot supply customer support or password reset services if you cannot access the email account used to register with the app.

How will we use your data?

Processing your data is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by us to support the internal operations of our app. We use your data so that we can:

  • Authenticate you
  • Manage your account
  • Provide customer support

We employ third-party companies to provide services necessary to operate our app and support website. These third-parties may have access to your personal data to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. These include:

Because we use third-party service providers, the personal data that we collect is likely to be transferred and processed outside of your country of residence.

If we transfer your personal data out of the European Economic Area or Switzerland we will take steps to ensure that the data receives the same level of protection as if it remained within the EEA. For transfers to third-parties in the United States this includes ensuring they participate in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.

We will not sell, rent or share any data we collect from you with any other third-party except in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, if we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, or if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation.

We do not use your personal data for marketing or advertising purposes.

We do not use your personal data for profiling or automated decision-making.

How do we secure and store your data?

The email address you use to register with or login to the app is made unreadable (pseudonymised using a one-way hashing function) before it is sent from your device to our servers. Your email address cannot be reconstructed by us into its original form or used to contact you.

We take security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We take measures to protect your personal data however we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us.

We will keep your personal data for as long as we continue to operate this service or until you ask us to delete it by deactivating your account. To request that we deactivate your account to delete your personal data, please use the contact information provided below.

For a one-time contact request to customer support or to reset a password, your online contact information such as an email address is only used to respond to that request.

When we no longer need to retain personal data we ensure it is securely disposed of.

How do we protect children’s privacy?

Our services are not directed to children and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal data from children.

If you are a parent or guardian and you believe your child has provided us with personal data, please inform us using the contact information provided below and where necessary we will delete the data from our files.

How do we use cookies and “Do Not Track”?

We do not use cookies.

We do not track you over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
