Velocity Lapse Privacy Policy

Effective April 3rd, 2024

Velocity Lapse is a time-lapse app for Android. This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you use Velocity Lapse (“The App”, “App”). I (the developer, Noah Rahm) want to be transparent with you on how Velocity Lapse handles sensitive permissions and your personal information. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at hi@velocitylapse.com.

By using the App, you accept this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions. Do not continue to use the App if you do not agree to this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions.

REQUIRED PERMISSIONS

The App requires Android permissions to access and use some of your device’s hardware in order to function properly, including: camera, read and write storage, foreground service, internet, and wake lock. All images and videos captured/produced with the App stay on your device unless you voluntarily use the share function to share with someone else.

INFORMATION COLLECTION & USE

I collect information within any messages and feedback you send to me (such as feedback, surveys, and questions) or publicly post (such as in Google Play Store reviews, feedback, or forums).

Data can be shared when you submit feedback (via a web-view in the App) or click a link opening a page of this website (in a web-view). This may include your email, device information and/or any other information you include.

Information collected is used for improving the App, fixing bugs, and/or notifying you of future App updates.

The App uses Revenue Cat, a third-party service, to provide in-app purchase(s). Via Revenue Cat, the App collects purchase history. Data is encrypted in transit and is not shared with any other party. You may request that this data be deleted by contacting the above email. Read Revenue Cat’s Privacy Policy for details.

Since Velocity Lapse v0.6.9+51, the App uses Embrace.io, a third-party service for analytics and crash reporting. Via Embrace, the App collects OS information, region, App version, platform version, device properties, CPU, memory, battery, network connectivity, App lifecycle, App events, crashes, and logs. Data is encrypted in transit and is not shared with any other party. Read Embrace’s PII Policy and Privacy Policy for details.

The following statement is kept here for users still using versions prior to v0.6.9+51: Prior to Velocity Lapse v0.6.9+51, the App used Flurry, a third-party service for analytics and crash reporting. Via Flurry, the App collected IP address, App lifecycle events, Country code, Language code, Time zone, Platform version, OS version, Device Properties, Network Status, App Info, and Device Identifiers. Data is encrypted in transit and is not shared with any other party. Note: As of March 15, 2024, Flurry is no longer in operation.

UPDATES TO THIS POLICY

I may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. You should periodically check this page for updates to this policy.
