In general all data is stored locally on your device and no personal data is transmitted from the Strip Designer application without your explicit consent, but it can still be difficult to determine which data the application collects and transmits when you do give your consent. In the following we intend to outline the types of personal data the application may collect and transmit, but please contact us if you feel something is unclear or that there is a matter that we do not describe in accurate detail.
Strip Designer enables you to create comics with your own personal photos. You can select photos from your Photo Album on the device or directly from your account on social network sites such as Facebook.com. Strip Designer stores those photos and comics in your device's long-term memory, and they can be permanently removed via the "My Comics" interface, by deleting the Strip Designer application, or otherwise.
Your photos and comics are not transmitted by Strip Designer from the device to Vivid Apps' or a third party's online server without your explicit consent. Photos and comics may be transmitted from the device when you choose to email or share them on social network sites such as Facebook.com or Twitter.com. They may also be transmitted to other devices via iCloud or iTunes synchronization, if you have explicitly set up synchronization between these devices.
When sharing comics via social network sites, Strip Designer will only upload the comic to your account on the specified social network site. Please consult the privacy settings within the application and on the social network site to ensure that your comics are only shared with those you intend when uploaded and shared via the specific site.
To provide you with easy access to your online photos as well as easy distribution of your comics, the application may require you to login to social network sites. When accessing third party social networks your login information such as username and password are required to access data from your account on these sites. The login information is not send to any party other than the social network site that you are accessing. The login information is also only used briefly during the login process, and not stored in long-term memory on the device.
When accessing photo albums on social network sites such as Facebook.com, a list of your photos is downloaded to the device's short term memory. The list contains a thumbnail of the photo and any data associated with the photo. The photos and associated data are not stored in the device's long term memory and not transmitted from the device.
Strip Designer enables you to insert maps in place of photos. To access local map data your current location (GPS coordinates) can be used by the app, but only if you explicitly give permission. Your location data is not collected by Strip Designer and only transmitted to a map service to download map images.
The Strip Designer application may exit abnormally in case of program error. In this case, a crash report will be generated that contains information about the location of the error in the program. Reports can be helpful to locate common program errors and improve the stability of the application. Should the user agree to send reports either by explicitly stating so, or by having enabled crash reporting in the device settings, these reports will be transmitted to online report-collecting servers and accessed by Vivid Apps. Reports do not contain any personal information.
Except from aforementioned crash reports, Strip Designer does not explicitly collect and transmit usage data.
