Last Updated: December 8th, 2014
The policy specifically addresses the following areas:
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies not owned or controlled by Crashlytics (including Developers) or to people whom Crashlytics or its parent do not employ or manage.
SECTION 1: END USER INFORMATION
This Section provides information on the collection and use of information from End Users.
What information does Crashlytics collect from End Users?
The Services automatically collect certain information that does not personally identify End Users who access or use mobile applications that use the Services. This information includes, but is not limited to, device state information, unique device identifiers, device hardware and OS information, information relating to how an application functions, and the physical location of a device at the time of a crash.
Developers may also enable certain features of the Services that collect additional information that does not personally identify End Users who access or use mobile applications that use the Services. This information includes, but is not limited to, information relating to how an End User uses that Developer’s application(s).
In addition, Developers may enable certain features of the Services that will allow Crashlytics to collect some End Users’ personally identifiable information, as well as whether the End User installed or used the Developer’s application and feedback that End Users voluntarily provide. For example, a Developer may provide Crashlytics with an End User’s email address so that Crashlytics can invite the End User to test a particular version of the Developer’s application, and the End User may download that application and submit feedback about it. Crashlytics may also receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. Crashlytics captures all of this information on Developers’ behalf so that they can understand and improve their applications and communicate with users about their experience with the applications. Crashlytics requires Developers to use Crashlytics to collect information solely for these purposes, and to observe all applicable laws and regulations.
How does Crashlytics use the information that it collects?
The information Crashlytics collects about End Users and their activities is the property of the Developer, not of Crashlytics. The information collected by the Services from End Users is used to provide Developers with insight into the functionality of and engagement with their applications, including any problems that occur. Our algorithms process and analyze the data separately for each Developer, so if you are an End User of multiple Developers that are Crashlytics’s customers your information is not shared across Developers. However, Crashlytics does aggregate information across Developers in a non-personally identifiable way. Such aggregate and anonymous information is used by Crashlytics to (i) improve the Services, (ii) create analysis of trends or behaviors and (iii) other similar uses, but always in an aggregate and anonymous way.
Will Crashlytics provide information about me with anyone else?
Except as provided below in Section 3, we never divulge End User data to anyone other than the Developer on whose behalf we are collecting and analyzing its End User data.
Is there a way that End Users can opt out of collection of information by Crashlytics?
Collection of information is at the discretion of each Developer, so please consult with the Developer whose application you are using as to how to opt out of collection of information by Crashlytics. Some Developers may use Answers by Crashlytics to help tailor their advertising, for example with information about how users engage with their apps. If you want to learn more about how to opt out of such use, please consult your device settings: the "Limit Ad Tracking" setting on iOS and the "Opt out of interestbased ads" setting on Android.
If you are, or have been invited to be, a beta tester, you can turn off email updates for particular applications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the email footer of these updates. If you want to stop using the beta testing service altogether, you can remove from your mobile device any Developer applications that you are testing, along with the Crashlytics app (on Android) or web clip and certificate (on iOS).
SECTION 2: DEVELOPER INFORMATION
This Section provides information on the collection and use of information from Developers.
What information does Crashlytics collect from Developers?
Crashlytics collects the following information from Developers:Usage Data:
Crashlytics collects information relating to the usage of the Services from Developers in order to better provide the service to Developers and to improve the performance of the Services generally.Account Information:
When you create an account with Crashlytics, you will provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, contact information, and account user name and password. We recognize that this information is very important to you and we will never divulge any of your personally identifiable information to anyone without your permission except as needed to provide Services to you and as described in Section 3 below.Email Communications:
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. We use this confirmation to improve our customer service.
How does Crashlytics use the information collected from Developers?
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient and customized experience while using our websites and to allow us to provide the Services to you. We use personal information solely for the purpose of contacting you with respect to your use of the Services, providing the Services to you and generally facilitating your use of the Services, or informing you about features of our Services that may be of interest to you.
In order to customize the online user experience, improve the Services generally, and provide Developers with useful statistics and analysis regarding use of the Services, we may use certain aggregate, anonymous information, including, without limitation, Services usage information, for such purpose, but never in a manner in which Developer or any End User is reasonably ascertainable.
How can Developers change or delete information?
You may review, update, correct or delete the personally identifiable information in your Crashlytics account where it is inaccurate by contacting us. If you would like us to delete your Crashlytics account in our system, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a request that we delete your personally identifiable information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. If you request that your personally identifiable information be deleted from our records, there may be a brief delay in our processing that request, while we verify that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. If you request that your information be deleted, we reserve the right to terminate and/or limit your access to the Services, as we may need such information to provide the Services to you. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. If your personally identifiable information changes, you may contact us to correct, update or delete and deactivate our record of your personally identifiable information.
