Privacy Policy for Phone Signal Information

inPocket software respects your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to the use of our Phone Signal Information app (“app”) on Android. This Policy explains the information we collect and its use. By using our app, you consent to the privacy policy.

1. Phone and network identity: The app collects phone identity, SIM information and cellular network information.

This sole purpose of the app collecting this data on your phone is to display the information to the user.

This information is not transmitted from your phone, it is not shared and it is not stored on a server.

2.  Location: The app requests use of the Android Location permission on startup (first use). When the permission is granted by the user, the app will collect data using this permission in the foreground and, when granted by the user in the background (when the app is not in use).

The location data collected is the identity and information about the cell tower the phone is currently registered with, changes to the cell tower currently registered with, network type, network country, network operator, radio frequency, and signal strength information about this cell and neighboring cells.

The Geographic location (latitude, longitude) of the phone is not collected by the app.  The app does not infer the approximate geographic location of the phone from the currently registered cell tower. The app does not determine the geographic location of the cell towers.

The sole purpose of the app collecting this data on your phone is to display signal strength, cellular tower and cellular network information to the user.

If the user grants the location permission in the background, then the data displayed to the user will include data from when the app is in the background. Specifically, (1) the signal strength graph over time will include the signal strength when the app is in the background and (2) the signal strength statistics will include the signal strength and network type when the app is in the background.

The information is not used for tracking, research or marketing purposes.

This information is not transmitted from your phone, it is not shared and it is not stored on a server.

3. Debug report: If the user manually sends a debug report to inPocket Software, some of this information (phone model, cell tower, cellular network and signal information) will be contained in the email and will be used by inPocket software solely for the purposes of debugging a problem with the app.

The email contact information will solely be used for the purposes of replying to the user. We do not use the personal information you include in any emails for promotional mailings.

This information is not shared.

4.  Advertising: The app does not include ads and hence does not provide information to 3rd party advertisers.

The app includes links to the inpocketsoftware.com website (such as for help). The website may contain ads. Please refer to the website privacy policy.

5.  Analytics: The app does not include analytics and hence does not collect statistics on app usage.
