How We Collect and Use of Application Data
The Service may collect certain information from you on behalf of the applicable developer, including, but not limited to: User IP addresses, OS version, OS localization, version of the application, localization of the application, device, bug reports, etc. The Service obtains this information as a result of data being sent to our servers from our software “agent” if embedded by the applicable developer in an application that is being used by you or on the website that you are accessing. The Service generates a globally unique identifier (“GUID”) that is stored on your computer to uniquely identify it. The GUID is a randomly generated number; it does not contain any Personal Data. The GUID is stored on your computer and sent with every report generated by the applicable application. The Service does not and will not collect any Personal Data from your computer(s) without your prior approval.
Application Data we collect is primarily used to display application usage to the account user and to create and publish industry benchmarks or comparative application metrics. Application Data may also be used by DeskMetrics to answer questions that customers may have about their account and to improve the Services.
Security of Data
DeskMetrics is committed to protecting the security of any Application Data and Personal Data that is collected by DeskMetrics. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect any Application Data and Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Despite these measures, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. DeskMetrics cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with the collection and storage of any Application Data and Personal Data, including without limitation, any mistakes and security breaches that may happen. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect the Application Data and Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
