If you request information or technical support, your personal data (such as your email address) is used only to respond to specific inquiry.
App data can be synchronized with your own cloud account at Google Drive™. Thus you can easily restore your data from the cloud to your new Android device. Your Android devices can also synchronize with each other via the cloud.
App data is stored in a hidden folder on your Google Drive. For security reasons this folder is accessible only by “My Notes” app.
My Notes app may display banner ads served by AdMob. Advertising helps us to keep our app free for you to use. Ads are not displayed in the “Premium” version.
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 personalized ads
To opt out of seeing personalized ads on your Android device, follow the instructions:
- In your main “Settings” app, scroll down and tap “Google”.
- Tap “Ads”.
- Switch on “Opt out of Ads Personalization” (Android 11 and lower) or tap “Delete advertising ID” (Android 12 and higher).
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.
