ShareAKiss Privacy Policy

The ShareAKiss app does not collect or store any information about individual users other than that which may be included in kiss files by users.

Data included in a Kiss is controlled by the user. When the user uses ShareAKiss to create or modify a Kiss (i.e. a kiss file), he or she may type in text for captions and other uses. In addition, the user may choose images for use in the Kiss. To allow the users to select the images the app may read and display any pictures of contacts, with their names, that are present on the device, if the user gives permission to do so. The app may also read and display other pictures, such as camera photos or downloaded images, but again, only if the user gives permission. ShareAKiss can also access profile pictures of some of the user’s Facebook friends (those who use the ShareAKiss app and who have given permission) and of Twitter users, but only if the ShareAKiss user gives permission to do so by logging on to those services from inside the ShareAKiss app when prompted to do so.

Users therefore control what data is included in a Kiss. The data only leaves the user’s device when the user shares the Kiss with another person or persons, at which point ShareAKiss uploads the kiss file to a private server and creates a special link to that data.  The user chooses a messaging app and creates a message that shares the link with other people. By tapping on the link, the recipients open their copy of ShareAKiss and download the Kiss.

Users should also be aware that once a Kiss is shared with another person that person can choose to make it public by copying the link to a third party, who also will be able to download the Kiss into their copy of the ShareAKiss app and view the photos and text that it contains.

In order to repair problems with the ShareAKiss app, and to get insights into how it might be improved, Croton Research LLC collects anonymous information about how the app is used, including reports about crashes, and sends it to a service that stores such information so that it can be used to improve the app. Individual users are not identified in this information.

If your version of ShareAKiss shows advertising, please note that Croton Research LLC has no control over the collection of information by ad providers, whose own privacy policies apply to that information if any.
