My Diary – Privacy Policy

 

Last modified: June 20, 2018

This privacy policy is designed to provide transparency to your use of KreoSoft application My Diary for Android devices. This application allows you to write your own diary.

User Provided Information

If you request information or technical support, your personal data (such as your email address) is used only to respond to specific inquiry.

Cloud

Your data can be synchronized with your own cloud account at Google Drive. Thus you can easily restore your data from a cloud to a new phone or tablet (in case of loss or upgrade). Your phone and tablet could be also synchronized between each other via a cloud. Please visit Google’s privacy policy  to learn how Google treats your personal data and protects your privacy when using Google Services (Google Drive in this case).

Advertising

My Diary app may display banner ads served by AdMob. Advertising helps us to keep our app free for you to use. Ads won’t be displayed after purchasing “Premium” in-app product.

AdMob is an advertising service provided by AdMob Google Inc. AdMob may use and collect anonymous data about your interests to customize advertising in our app. To do that AdMob uses unique user-resettable Advertising ID, provided by Google Play services. Advertising ID enables users to reset their identifier or opt out of personalized ads (interest-based ads) within Google Play apps (including our app).

In order to understand Google’s use of Data, consult Google’s partner policy.

Opt out of seeing personalized ads

It is possible to opt out of interest-based advertising on your Android device.

Open the “Settings” application on your Android device and select the “Google” menu item. Depending on your device, this option may not be visible on the main menu but you may use the search function at the top of the Settings menu to find it. From there, select the “Ads” sub-item and activate the option “Opt out of Ads Personalisation” to prevent the creation of profiles and the display of personalized advertising. You can delete the advertising ID in the same menu at any time (“Reset advertising ID”), then a new ID will be created which will not be merged with the previously collected data.

Please note that if you choose to “opt out” it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. It just means that the advertising you see displayed will not be customized to you and your interests and may be less relevant to you.
