Privacy Policy

This privacy policy tells you how we use information collected by Status. We wrote it in plain english to make it understandable, and to make a commitment to transparency. By using Status, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the privacy policy to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

Collection of Information

We do NOT store any location history. The only personally identifiable information we store on our servers includes account names, telephone numbers and email addresses used for account creation. We do not store postal addresses. The contacts information you provide to the app is used to find friends who may be using Status, and nothing else. We do not store any calendar events or SMS information on our servers.

Analytics Technology

The app uses Google Analytics and Amplitude analytics technology. Google Analytics is anonymous usage data, and we anonymize data before sending anything to Amplitude. Analytics technology is useful for gathering information such as device type and operating system for debugging, for tracking the number of times the app is used, and understanding how users use the app. Personal information cannot be collected via analytics and other tracking technology, however, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, cookies may be tied to such information. Aggregate usage information may be shared with third parties.

Which data is stored locally on the smartphone?

There is a local database for storing notification preferences, for storing a cached list of your friends' most recent statuses, and any locations you create (home, work etc). Google Analytics and Amplitude create local databases as well. These are stored in the application data.

Distribution of Information

We may share information with governmental agencies when permitted or required by law. The information is not provided to any companies for marketing purposes.

Commitment to Data Security

Your information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information.
