Sound Stop Privacy Policy

This is the privacy policy for my Sound Stop iOS app. It details my policies concerning the collection, use, transfer and disclosure of personal or personally identifiable information.

What information is collected?

Sound Stop does not collect any of your personal information. I strongly disagree with the rampant collection of personal data on principle. I will never include any ads in this app or use any analytics libraries.

Audio recordings are deleted once the Stop recording or Stop adjusting buttons are pressed, when another app interrupts recording or when the app is closed.

Log data is collected by iOS in the case of errors in the app, such as crashes or situations where the app stops responding. This log data may include information such as your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, app configuration when the error occurred, the time and date of the error occurrence, the stack trace, and other statistics.

Log data is only transmitted to Apple (and then to me) if it is enabled in the device settings. Please see this Apple Support article for more information on how to enable/disable this on your device.

What is the information used for?

Audio recordings are used to measure the noise-level. Nothing else is done with this data at all. As stated above, the data is deleted when the app stops recording.

Log data collected from the app is useful in diagnosing why errors occur and will help to improve the experience of using the app overall. However, error reporting is completely voluntary and can be easily disabled.

Is any information disclosed to outside parties?

Log data collected from the app is sent through iOS developer services. Please see the Apple support page I mentioned above for more information.

Changes to this privacy policy
