Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Michel Gerard Apps we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We don’t abuse your mobile device’s functionality. Our Android and iOS apps may require the use of certain functionality on your mobile device (phone or tablet) for the sole purpose to operate normally, such as, but not limited to, using the camera or audio recorder, read the device’s state or location, get some account’s information or send push notifications.

Below is our Privacy Policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, this Privacy Policy is based on the one at https://automattic.com/privacy/ which is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, like this one, which you can repurpose for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you.)
