Information Collected by the Mobile App

The Mobile App does not require users to provide their contact information (such as name, address, phone number, and e-mail address) in using the application. However, we may collect some other information, such as unique device identifiers or aggregated and anonymized information, such as device information (brand, category, model, OS version, upgrades), and application information (installations, updates, uninstallations), which enable us to track Mobile App downloads and usage, so that we may maintain and improve the Mobile App.

To the extent that you wish to share the Mobile App or its contents with your phone contacts, you may also consent to allow the Mobile App to access your contacts list in order for you to share the Mobile App.

Use of Information Collected by the Mobile App

We may use the information collected within the Mobile App as permitted by law, and in order to operate, maintain, and improve the Mobile App. We may use non-identifying and aggregated information about the Mobile Application for reporting and analytics purposes: to ensure that the Mobile app is functioning for the users who have downloaded it, understand the adoption of the Mobile App, and to support the consistent and effective use of the application.

We use industry standards for protection of the information we collect and use appropriate security safeguards. We will keep the information collected by the Mobile App for a period of time as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the information was originally collected, or as may be necessary pursuant to applicable law.
