Privacy Policy for the SnipNotes App

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on SnipNotes for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Information we collect

Crash reports: SnipNotes uses the service “Crashlytics” for crash reporting. When SnipNotes quits unexpectedly, an anonymous crash report will automatically be transmitted on the next launch. This report does not contain any personally identifiable information.

Usage statistics: SnipNotes automatically logs certain events, e.g. when you open the app for the first time or when you create a new note. This data is transmitted in an aggregated and anonymized format. For example, we can determine how many notes were created on a given day, but not who created the notes nor what their content is.

Error logs: When you send a support request from within SnipNotes, a text file may be attached automatically to the email. This file contains information on errors that SnipNotes has encountered in the past, e.g. when iCloud synchronization was unsuccessful. This data contains your device model, your software version and your network status at the time of the error.

Information usage

We use crash reports and error logs to resolve issues within the app and to assist with customer support. Usage statistics help us with improving the app. We do not collect nor share any personally identifiable information.

Synchronization with iCloud

Apple encrypts all data transmitted and stored on iCloud. Please refer to the following document for more information on how your data is stored on Apple’s iCloud servers:

Accessing, changing or deleting your information
