Privacy Policy

Effective date: April 29, 2019

Privacy Everywhere is the maker of the mobile and desktop application Privacy Everywhere (the “App”).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our App and the choices you have associated with that data.

By using the App, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Google (Gmail) user data collection

This chapter is applicable only if you are using App with Google (Gmail) account.

1. Personally identifiable information, or “Personal Data”. This is the type of information that can be used to contact or identify you. We only collect data that you share with us and we do this to improve services we offer you. Providing your Personal Data to us is your choice. If you choose not to provide us with certain Personal Data, you may not be able to user our App with Google (Gmail) account. We only collect Personal Data that is based on either Gmail’s API (OAuth) authentication by users or information users input manually into App.

We collect the following information:

  • Email address;
  • Gmail access token (that allows App to work with your Gmail mailbox);
  • Metadata (email headlines);
  • List of Gmail labels (folders);
  • Gmail labels and individual email statuses like read/unread or star/unstar;
  • Email messages (you can select amount of messages saved locally and they would be stored inside of the encrypted local storage with AES-256 encryption which only you can access).

2. Gmail API scopes. We use only Gmail restricted scopes required to use App. These scopes are limited to:

  • https://mail.google.com/ (used to read, compose, send, and permanently delete all your email from Gmail which is required for our App to give you ability to work with your mailbox, read and manage your emails and send emails from our App)

These scopes are limited to the use of data in providing and improving user-facing features that are prominent in our App only. We do not transfer data for serving ads, including retargeting, personalized or interest-based advertising.

We only communicate with Google servers through the Gmail’s API (OAuth) and encrypted IMAP/SMTP protocols to access your mailbox data. You can revoke access at any time.
