Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy for Phase4 Mobile Inc. (“Phase4”) describes:

  • The information that we collect in our Mobile Apps and Websites
  • How we use this information, why we store, and why we retain it
  • How you can request that your information is updated or deleted
  • Important legal and contact information

Mobile Apps

When you download and use our Mobile Apps, we collect information locally on the type of device you use, operating system version, country code and language to localize the application and to improve the user experience.

Our Mobile Apps require no external user accounts, email addresses or registrations, and our paid apps have no tracking or data collection of any kind.

Several of our Mobile Apps are designed to monitor and help improve sleep over time. These apps record sleep and awake time, the highest volume sound in one night, and provide the option to record notes. All information is stored locally on the device and not exported, shared, or used for any other purpose. Sound files are temporary and not stored in logs, shared or exported. All locally entered and stored sleep and notes information may be deleted at any time using UI controls within the app.

Our Mobile Apps provide an option to request help or suggest functionality via email. No email addresses are used for any other purpose, or shared with any third party. You can always contact us at contact@phase4mobile.com if you’d like to remove an email correspondence.

Our free Mobile Apps use a leading third party advertising mediation network to provide small banner advertisements, and it and compatible ad network partners serve these ads within the apps.

In our free Mobile apps, in iOS14 and later, we show a standard App Tracking Transparency request to allow you to either opt-in or opt-out of tracking. The iOS tracking settings determine whether ads are personalized or not, and also whether an industry-standard crash-reporting tool is used. The crash reporting tool uses diagnostic traces and installation UUIDs to build a description of any crashes, and this diagnostic information helps us improve the product over time.

If you are located in a country outside the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland, you can opt out of receiving personalized advertising in iOS14 or later by declining the App Tracking Transparency request, or at any later time by disabling “Allow Apps to Request to Track” in iOS->Settings->Privacy->Tracking, or by disabling the tracking switch for the specific app on this screen. You can disable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting at any time in earlier iOS versions.

If you are located in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, or Switzerland, free Mobile Apps downloaded or updated after May 25, 2018 also present a consent dialog asking whether you wish to have personalized or non-personalized ads. You can also revoke this at any time in iOS14 or later by declining the App Tracking Transparency request, or at any later time by disabling “Allow Apps to Request to Track” in iOS->Settings->Privacy->Tracking, or by disabling the tracking switch for the specific app on this screen. You can disable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting at any time in earlier iOS versions.

When ads are personalized, either by providing consent and opting-in to tracking in the European Economic Area, the U.K. or Switzerland, or opting-in the rest of the world, personal data is collected by our ad network partners.

Our advertising networks and their demand partners use personalized data to serve relevant ads to the apps, provide aggregated ad reporting, detect and prevent fraud, and maintain and improve their services.

Depending on where you live and your privacy selections within iOS, the personal data collected can include:

  • Information about your device, such as the type and model, manufacturer, operating system, carrier name, mobile browser, and screen size. Device identifiers such as your IP address, iOS Identifier for Advertising (IDFA), or an Advertising-specific identifier.
  • Information about your app usage, the start/stop time of your app session, your current time zone, and your network connection type (e.g., WiFi, cellular).
  • An approximate geographic location, including information like country, city, and geographic coordinates, based on your IP address.
  • Information about ads served, viewed, or clicked on, such as the type of ad, where the ad was served, whether you clicked on it, and whether you visited the advertiser’s website or downloaded the advertiser’s app.

If you decide that you do not want a personalized advertising experience, this data will not be used, and you will be served contextual advertising, i.e. ads targeted to the content or type of app you are using.

If you do not consent to a personalized advertising experience, or you later withdraw consent, our ad mediation partner may still process personal data when necessary for fraud detection or to comply with the law.

Our Websites do not store your personal information, track you, or use cookies, and they shows no advertisements. No information is accessed or shared by our websites.
