Privacy Policy

Last updated: July 7, 2017

I operate this site http://malcolmteas.com, I also have developed one or more apps on the iTunes app store. This page informs you of my policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of any information related to your use of these websites or of the apps I’ve written. That policy can be summed up as “collect only the minimum of information I need to make my site and apps better and avoid any user-identifiable information”.

 

What Information is Collected by the Websites?

Since this is a public site, there is no user-identifiable login for me to record. While using these websites your browser will send my server some data like it’s IP address and some browser information like your browser type and version.  As virtually all other websites do, I record some of this data in log files. I use this data to see how many visitors this website, when they visited and what browser they used. I don’t ask for and can’t see any user-identifying information.  I’m just happy you viewed my site.

 

What Information is Collected by my Apps?

When you use one of my apps, the app will record some analytics and send it over a secure (https) link to my private (and secure) analytics server.  I do this to that I can understand better how to improve my apps.  I get information on what phone model you’re using, and I can tell your country via your IP address.  I can also tell some very limited information about how long you use the app and what screens you use. I use this information to write better apps.

If (perish the thought) an app I wrote crashes, the crash log is sent to me so I can figure out why it crashed so I can try and fix that.  Crash logs do not show user-specific information either.

I do not knowingly collect any information about who you are or about how to identify you.  I’m just glad you like my apps and are using them.

 

Third-party Information Collection

I do not knowingly or actively participate in any third-party information collection.  My analytics server is my private server.  I host no advertising networks or and do not use third-party information collection on either my websites or apps.
