We do not collect such information at any other time, including when you are using your app. In fact, at no point do we collect information from you other than relevant system information that we need in the rare instance that the app crashes. Even then, that information is not specific to users and thus is not personal in nature. We only collect that information so that our third-party bug tracking service can identify any trending issues that need to be resolved to make the Phone Swipe app run as seamlessly as you’ve come to expect it to.
Also, a few merchants have asked about the inclusion of a permission in version 2.0 of the Phone Swipe app that allowed it to launch when your device boots. That was implemented solely to allow location services and would not, unlike some other apps, launch other services that would result in a device’s battery draining more quickly. With the release of version 2.0.1 of our app, we have changed how we handle location services and removed that permission.
You can rest assured that any data collected once you have been approved for a Phone Swipe account is entirely impersonal in nature and is only collected so that we can continue to bring you and your customers as smooth a transaction process as possible.
We hope that clears up any confusion and we hope you have a happy and prosperous holiday season.Continue reading
