Newsted - My statement may have stretched a bit, but here are a few items from Swiftkey's web site that users should know:
"At SwiftKey, we may collect three types of information from our users, in the following contexts:
1. Anonymous crash and usage statistics from our client Apps (such as SwiftKey for Android), to help us debug and improve our products and services.
2. Language data voluntarily provided by our users to facilitate cloud-based personalization, prediction synchronization, backup and other such server-based services.
3. Personal contact information and correspondence via our web sites and communications channels, which allows us to offer user support, beta testing communities, surveys, competitions and similar services."
"By opting to personalize SwiftKey or other TouchType Apps/services using our server-based personalization technology, you grant TouchType permission to handle your data on our servers.
This grant means that we have your permission to access message and other language data stored on your profiles on the various third party services that you specifically elect for us to access (e.g. Gmail, Facebook, Twitter).
Granting TouchType permission to handle your data for personalization services means our servers may store data that you consider to be personal or private data. We will guard and protect such data very carefully to ensure that your privacy is not compromised. In particular, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless you have consented to such disclosure or where we are required to do so by law.
Your use of TouchType’s server-side personalization services means we may use data provided by you, which may or may not include personal data, to process your service requests, personalize your use of our Apps, and review, develop and improve our products and services. Such data will only be processed by TouchType employees or agents securely, so as to safeguard your privacy."
Lee, I hope that this helps answer your question about my post. Thank you.
