Since the 1.7.0 version, the app uses Google device backup copy, if it's turned on in the device's and the app's settings. In that case an encrypted copy of notes is stored on Google Drive. It can be changed by a user at any time. More

or problems related to the app. Email addresses are not stored anywhere outside the email service provider used by the developer (outlook.com). The diagnostic data that can be sent using the "Technical support" function contains: device's model/vendor,
version of the operating system, operations performed in the app, and optionally note titles. Sending note titles is optional, is set in the app's settings, and is meant to help diagnose an issue with a specific note. Notes are never
with the aforementioned diagnostic info.
Email address set for resetting password is stored locally on the phone. When a user selects the option to send an email for resetting password the email address is processed on the developer's server but is not stored anywhere or shared with anyone. The developer does not collect email addresses.

The app uses AdMob and InMobi to provide ads.
AdMob is an advertising service provided by Google. AdMob can collect and use anonymous data to customize the ads for the user. It may use unique Advertising ID which is provided by Google Play
services on the device. For users in EEA there is an additional dialog which allows to choose between personalized and non-personalized ads. The decision can be changed at any time. More information about Google's ads can be found here

5. Information shared during last 12 months
Information shared during last 12 months consists of the information listed in point 3. The information was shared for analytics and advertising purposes. As one can see no personal information that could identify a user (email address, for example) was
shared. The app doesn't even collect such information (e.g. email address). Please note that notes are kept securely, and the only way to access the notes is to use the app
6. Selling "personal" information

can only be accessed by the user of the app.
7. Users rights
Users in EEA and California have rights to access, obtain, delete, or opt-out of selling personal information. Please use the email@example.com
to exercise any
of the rights. California residents can use the following link to opt-out of selling "personal" information: Do Not Sell My Personal
