Before the legalities I’d like to talk to you in simple words about how we treat your data
First of all, the most important data you share in Tracing Buddy, your pictures, are treated with the highest priority. Your pictures are never in any way transmitted to us or our partners. That’s why if a problem happens concerning your images (display errors, the app can’t access them) we ask you to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the situation, otherwise, we have no way of knowing what could be the issue
The bulk of Tracing Buddy’s data collection comes from third party services, you can find their respective privacy policies below, but this is a quick explanation of how we use them
– Crashlytics: This service sends us anonymized information concerning bugs and crashes that happen when using the app. It allows us to know if the app is behaving normally and fix any problems in a timely manner
– Firebase Analytics: While the uses can be complex, in our case we use it to have a clearer picture of the type and amount of users our app has. The information we get is anonymized and generalized. Analytics can also try to assign an approximate geographic location based on internet connection, it doesn’t get access to the GPS in your device
– Admob: Advertisement supplier, in the case of paid users communication with the service is never started.
Starting with version 2.1 another third party service is included
– Revenue Cat: A subscription management service, it assigns an anonymized id to the purchase so the app can know if it’s necessary to allow access to paid features
In version 3.2, the previously used Mopub service gets removed
La Fappbrica built the Tracing Buddy app as a Freemium and Ad Supported app. This SERVICE is provided by La Fappbrica at no cost and is intended for use as is.
This page is used to inform visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service.
