Privacy

This privacy policy tells you how we use information collected by Cape. We wrote it in plain english to make it understandable, and to make a commitment to transparency. By using Cape, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the privacy policy to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

 

Collection of Information

We do NOT share any location history. The personally identifiable information we store on our servers includes account names and email addresses used for account creation. The contacts information you provide to the app is used to find friends who may be using Cape, and nothing else. We do not store any SMS information on our servers or message content on our servers. Cape uses Layer for the chat, and with Layer all communication to and from their servers is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) with both server- and client-side authentication for devices. Read Layer’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

 

Analytics Technology

The app uses Crashlytics and Mix Panel analytics technology. Analytics technology is useful for gathering information such as device type and operating system for debugging, for tracking the number of times the app is used, and understanding how users use the app.

There is a local database for storing notification preferences, for storing a cached list of your friends’ most recent statuses, and any places you create (home, work etc), these are stored in the application data. Layer messaging technology also stores the user’s conversation and messaging history on the device.  

 

Distribution of Information

We may share information with governmental agencies when permitted or required by law. The information is not provided to any companies for marketing purposes.

 

Commitment to Data Security

Your information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information.
