Privacy Policy

As the developer of GIFwrapped, your privacy is very important to me. The Privacy Policy that follows explains what information I collect about you and why, what I may do with that information and how it is handled. It applies to both the app for iOS and any web services provided by me as part of its use (referred to as “GIFwrapped”). By using GIFwrapped, you agree to this privacy policy.

GIFwrapped makes use of several third-party services for various parts of its use, including, but not limited to: Dropbox, Tenor (owned by Google, Inc.), Giphy (owned by Facebook, Inc.), and GfyCat. This privacy policy does not cover these services, except in relation to GIFwrapped’s explicit use thereof. For more information about their stance on privacy, see the privacy policy for each of these services directly.

Dropbox

GIFwrapped uses a token provided by Dropbox to access files within the GIFwrapped directory of your account (Apps/GIFwrapped). This token only has permission from Dropbox (and you, after you agree to connect your Dropbox account) to access the contents of this directory. No other files or directories can or will be accessed by GIFwrapped at any time.

Information about your account—such as the provided token, and the contents—is never transmitted from your device, or logged in any manner. Your content is your own, and is only shared publicly at your explicit request, such as when you share the URL for a file that exists within your Dropbox account.

iCloud

GIFwrapped uses application programming interfaces (APIs) provided by Apple to access files within the GIFwrapped directory of your iCloud account. These APIs only have access to the contents of this directory. No other files or directories can or will be accessed by GIFwrapped at any time.

Information about your account is never transmitted from your device, or logged in any manner. Your content is your own, and is only shared publicly at your explicit request, such as when you share the URL for a file that exists within your iCloud account.

Search

GIFwrapped’s online search functionality is provided by Tenor, which is owned by Google, Inc. Additional options are also available via advanced keywords, including Giphy (owned by Facebook, Inc.), and GfyCat.

Searches are performed directly via the APIs these services provide, with no additional information being transmitted to them.

Analytics

Information about how you use GIFwrapped is logged for analytics purposes, to gain a greater understanding of the general usage of—and thus improve—GIFwrapped. The data collected does not include information that can be used to personally identify you, but does include basic information about the device you’re using (such as the model, operating system version, etc.) to help identify the cause of any issues. This can include identifiers for a specific installation, which are used to identify recurring issues, but these identifiers are not able to be traced back to you in any way.

Activities tracked can change between versions, and includes:

Analytics are collected using the third-party Firebase service, which is owned by Google, Inc. As such, data is shared with Firebase, and is handled according to their security and privacy practices.

Crash reports

In the case of a crash, a report is generated and transmitted for review. These reports are also collected using the third-party Firebase service, as per the Analytics section.

Advertising

Banner advertising displayed within the app is directly managed by me. As part of this service, I collect only basic information about the display (known as impressions) and interaction (known as clicks) of individual ads on devices. As of writing, this is done through the third-party Firebase service,

The advertising shown to you is not personalised, and does not use the advertising identifier provided by iOS.
