Privacy Policy

TapNote (and TapNote Lite) log the following non-identifiable information when checking for program updates:

  • Unique device ID (contains no information that I could use to associate the data with a specific user; merely ensures that I’m not logging information for the same device more than once)
  • TapNote version number and app ID
  • Cell phone carrier (Sprint, Verizon, etc.)
  • Device model (Pre, Pixi)
  • WebOS version number
  • Mojo framework build number
  • Keyboard layout
  • Locale (en_us, for example)

I gather this information for several reasons:

  1. I need some idea of the size of the userbase
  2. I need to be able to track what devices and WebOS versions are in use so I can make informed decisions about what I need to support
  3. I need to know how many non-English users are making use of TapNote so I can better prioritize localized versions of the app

I guarantee your privacy; aside from having no way to associate this data with a given user, I will not share it with any third party save as aggregate statistics. That notwithstanding, if you are not comfortable with me collecting this info, simply disable the automatic update checking functionality in the app preferences (available only in TapNote; update checking is non-optional in TapNote Lite). You will still be able to download updates to TapNote by checking for them by hand in the Palm App Catalog.
