Storyist Software Application Privacy Policy

This page describes the information that may be collected by our apps, how we may use it, and how you can opt-out if you want to. If you have questions, please contact us. We'd be happy to discuss it with you.

Note: If you're looking for our website privacy policy, please see this page.

What information do we collect?

First, it is important to understand that neither Storyist for Mac nor Storyist for iOS collect personally identifiable information. Privacy is important to us, and we believe that you have the right to privacy when using our apps.

However, if crash reporting or update checking are enabled, Storyist may collect non-personally identifiable application and system information to help us improve our app.

Crash Reporting

If crash reporting is enabled, Storyist may collect non-personally identifiable information, including:

To accomplish this, we use crash reporting and analytics software and services from Crashlytics, a business division of Google Inc.

Crashlytics, Inc. may aggregate the information from apps that use its services in a non-­personally identifiable way. Such aggregate and anonymous information is used by Crashlytics to improve its services, create an analysis of trends or behaviors, and other similar uses, but always in an aggregate and anonymous way.

If you don’t want Storyist to collect this information, you can opt-out as follows:

Update Checking

Versions of Storyist for Mac purchased from the Storyist website may send an update check request to our server. To accomplish this, we use the open source Sparkle software update framework. This request contains:

If you don’t want Storyist for Mac to collect this information, you can opt-out by opening the General pane of the Storyist preferences window and setting the Check for Updates popup to Manual.

Note: For apps purchased from the App Store or Mac App Store, update checking is handled by the operating system, not the app, so you won't see a setting for it in the preferences window.

Do We Disclose Any Information to Outside Parties?

We do not disclose the information to outside parties except as required by law.

Crashlytics, Inc. may disclose aggregate measures of the usage, engagement, and performance of its services that do not identify any particular user or device. You can find Crashlytics’s privacy policy at https://try.crashlytics.com/terms/privacy-policy.pdf.
