Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application Algorand Wallet (“Application”) for mobile devices that was created by Algorand Inc. (“Algorand”, “we”, “us”, “our”). This privacy policy was last updated on May 8, 2019. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, feel free to contact us any time at [email protected].

1. How does the Application use private keys?

The Application uses the private keys solely for the purpose of signing transactions. These keys are stored locally on your mobile device and Algorand will have no access to them.

2. What information does the Application obtain and how is it used?

The Application does not collect, transmit or otherwise process any personally identifiable information or personal data about you, such as your name, phone number, private key, or email address.

The Application does allow you to save a list of “Contacts” for ease of transaction. Each “Contact” consists of a name and a public key. This information is only stored locally on your device and Algorand will have no access to it.

The Application does collect certain diagnostic data (“Diagnostic Data”) automatically which helps associate crash data with specific instances of the Application. The following Diagnostic Data is collected by Crashlytics (Fabric, a Google LLC company), and retained for 90 days, in accordance with the Crashlytics privacy policy:

  • Installation UUID (Universally Unique Identifier)
  • Crash traces

We will have access to that Diagnostic Data through Crashlytics, however we will not be able to identify you from the information. We take commercially reasonable steps to ensure Crashlytics adheres to the security standards we apply to Diagnostic Data (see section 7 below).

3. With whom is information disclosed?

Except for Diagnostic Data collected by Crashlytics (see section 2 above), no personal information is transmitted or distributed by the Application.

4. How do you handle location data?

The Application does not use or collect any data related to your geographic location.

5. Can users see their personal data?

Yes. The data can only be accessed via the mobile device as it is only stored locally and not transmitted from the device (see section 2 above).

6. Do advertising companies collect data?

The Application has no facility for transmitting or distributing user data, so no data is shared with advertising companies.

7. How do you keep information secure?

Although we implement commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and organizational measures to protect Diagnostic Data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, please be aware that you use the Application at your own risk.

8. Do you comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)?

Yes. We do not solicit nor gather any data from children under the age of 13 because the Application does not collect or transmit any personally identifiable information (see section 2 above).

9. How Users Can Contact Algorand?
