Your privacy is critically important to us. At This App we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. 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. In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, This App collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This App’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how This App’s visitors use its website. From time to time, This App may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Usage of the This App website is tracked by common industry tracking software (Google Analytics).
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to This App’s websites choose to interact with This App in ways that require This App to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that This App gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for this App account to provide a username and email address. In each case, This App collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with This App. This App does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
This App discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on This App’s behalf or to provide services available at This App’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using This App’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. This App will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, This App discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when This App believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of This App, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of .an This App website and have supplied your email address, This App may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with This App and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. This App takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
This App Android App
The This App android app collects all so-called “package names” of installed applications on an Android phone and stores it on This App servers. For each app, apart from the package name, also the version, the first time the This App app saw this app present on the phone, and a coarse number indicative of usage is sent. On the This App server, this list of apps is stored together with a phone identifier, and the IP address of the user. Apps that don’t match any package name we know about from the market data are discarded from further processing.
App Lists and Recommendations
When a user indicates that the list of apps is public, this data can be displayed publicly and also shared via to other site such as twitter, facebook etc. However this private app lists will never be shared or shown publicly. We hold the right to report aggregate statistics on data contained in private lists, in such a way that there is no possibility of deducing apps contained in individual private lists. The main goal of collecting data is to provide recommendations of applications by linking app preferences between users. These links will also happen in an aggregated fashion, such that it is impossible to find out whether particular users have or use an app when they have indicated this information is private. Any information not directly related to the apps itself (such as the country derived from the IP address, age, and gender) is solely used to better understand which other users might provide valuable signals to provide better application recommendations.
Fast Web Installer data
For the fast web installer feature, we store a Google credential token on our server. We will only use this token when we receive a request to install an app from the website. The token automatically times out and is unusable in about a week. In that case, you have to re-run the fast web installer app to reactivate the fast web installer.
Developer dashboard data
This App offers a service for developers to gain more insight into users of their apps called This App Insights. Protection of the privacy of users is of the utmost importance to us, and we have taken a number of precautions in presenting data to preserve the privacy of users. We only show data to about apps that have at least 20 active user . Furthermore, we only show individual data entities (such as a country, age bucket or phone model), when it is present in at least 3 users for that app.
Active App Tracking
If active app tracking is enabled in the This App Android app, we additionally collect the approximate usage times of the apps installed on the device. The collected data is used to improve our app recommendations. The (anonymized) data can be shared with research institutions for research purposes. The user can enable and disable active app tracking at any time in the app settings.
