Collection and Usage of Metrics
Metrics about usage such as the number of times different features are used, which preference options are set and some device details are collected by the Contexts app. The metrics do not include any private information like which apps you use or what search terms you type etc. We use this information internally to help us understand how people use the app and to make improvements.
The Contexts app periodically connects with our servers to check for updates. Some metrics may be sent by the app to our servers when it connects. This includes details like which app version you are using and your license id.

However, we use a number of services provided by other companies (some of which are mentioned above) for hosting, email, managing support queries, payments, analytics etc. We only share as much information with these companies as is required by them to provide us these services. All companies we work with use industry standard practises for ensuring security and confidentiality of your information.
We may share and disclose personal information if required to do so by law or to comply with a legal process.
