Information Collection and Use
Pattern Resource Group LLC’s licensed apps are created for free use and service to the end user. In the interest of both privacy and security of the user, the Service has done as much as possible to collect as little information as possible from your usage and devices.
With this page, we intend to be 100% transparent regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information for those choosing to use our Service.
- Our systems, and those of Amazon Web Services whom we use as our server and storage provider, do not request or store any personally identifiable information regarding the user’s device or internet address in the use the app. Upon downloading new resources for the app, our server retains only the name of the country from where the download was requested. To better provide new resources to the user, our service keeps a count of the number of times items are downloaded. To repeat, only the country, not the user, information is kept and associated with these items.
- If the user chooses to contact the Service for assistance with a request for a response, the user understands that the Service is not in control of the privacy and security of all messaging/communication services (i.e. email or social messaging platforms). Upon receiving the contact information, it is stored in a secure and responsible manner, used only for the purpose intended, and never shared or sold outside of the Service team. The information is deleted from all locations upon request.
- The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you. Most importantly, this relates to the app stores from which the application is downloaded. These companies may have user information associated with emails, device id numbers, and the specific internet location requesting to download the app.
Cookies are the small files with unique, identifiable information that are used to track how users interact with the app and across the internet. They frequently track activity across apps on the device. If you have noticed how the internet always seems to know what you have been doing or looking at, then you have seen cookies in action. These cookies are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device’s internal memory. This Service does not use these “cookies” in our on-device and website application.
Embedded or linked content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We are thankful for your trust in using our application. We use industry standard, and higher, means of protecting the little information we store, and all information you provide to us when you need assistance. All connections to the Service use industry standard HTTPS encrypted protocols. While we undergo regular cybersecurity reviews, there is no way for us to guarantee 100% security.
The Service provides both on-device installable applications and a web browser viewable version. The on-device app versions follow the recommended operating system security protocols with the data always encrypted while remaining on the device. The website version places information in the cache (web-browser memory) for faster access and less bandwidth usage. This information is likely more accessible to any person with access to your device. Releasing this memory involves managing the application data in the web browser advanced settings.
