All text files, images, and other files displayed in iA Writer’s Library (“user content”) are kept either in a local folder on a device or in a selected cloud storage. At no time is any user content sent to or obtained by Information Architects. User content stored in a cloud storage is subject to the user agreements and privacy policies of the service.
What information does iA Writer obtain?
To help us begin fixing any problems right away, iA Writer will automatically send anonymous crash reports. Crash reports contain information on the crash, including device model, system version, plus the application’s version and build number.
We collect the following statistical data: timestamp, device model, system version, device language, plus app version, build number, feature usage, and anonymous installation identifier.
How is the information used?
In both cases, this data is collected for the sole purpose of helping us to improve iA Writer apps and does not include any personal information. No other data is collected.
Do third parties have access to this information?
As governed by their respective Privacy Policies, anonymous crash reports are symbolicated by HockeyApp, and may be shared with Apple when reporting bugs. Similarly, crash and app not responding (ANR) reports may be shared with Google when reporting bugs. They are not shared with anyone else outside Information Architects. Anonymous statistics are not shared with anyone outside Information Architects, except in aggregate.
Why does iA Writer request permission for Contacts on Android?
In order to connect to the full Google Drive API, permission for Contacts is required. iA Writer itself makes no use of these permissions, nor does Information Architects collect or store any information of this type.
