Privacy Policy

Hi, my name is Peter Smith and I operate as a sole trader based in Australia. This document explains my privacy policy and how I handle your personal information if you use my products.

My business is making and selling mobile phone apps. I have 3 types of product. I have free mobile apps with advertising, paid mobile apps without advertising and this website which is used to support my apps and display my products.

The types of personal information I collect and how I use it

Peter Smith Apps does not require their own copy of personal data to operate. I have no interest in keeping customer personal data myself. 

  • I do not keep or have a mailing list
  • I do not keep or have any payment data. Any payments or purchases made through my apps are made with Apple, and any refund requests must be made to them as I don’t have any transaction details. Please use the “Contact Me” form if you want further details on how to apply for a refund from Apple.

Here are some further details on how my products work.

The website does not store your personal information in cookies.

If you submit me a support request on the “Contact Me” page the website will collect your Name and Email Address. I use your email address to respond to your enquiry and I use your name to address you in the reply email.  Your support enquiry may remain in my personal inbox as an email I have received and may remain in my sent items as a response I have sent.

My Apps

Your location

Many of my free and paid mobile apps collect your location for the purposes of running the app. They may request you to choose a location on a map or use the location services on your device to gain a location. Where the location is requested by my apps using the location services on your device, it will only request locations to within a 3 kilometre radius (that is 1.86 miles). Locations are only saved on your actual device by the apps for the purpose of providing the functionality of the app and for easy reuse for convenience when the app is next used.

Advertising and Analytics Partners

I partner with third parties to display advertising and collect analytics data in some of my apps. The advertising that you see is personalised to your tastes by default – it is based on the apps on your device and the websites you have viewed in the past. In Europe when you first run an app with advertising and when you request it in the app settings you will have the option to switch off this personalisation.  If you choose to do so, you will still see advertising but it will not be personalised to your tastes.

Apple – My apps collect usage data (“analytics”) with your consent. Apple describe the data collected and how to withdraw consent at the website https://www.apple.com/privacy/

Google – I partner with Google to provide advertising and also to collect usage data (“analytics”) .Google describe the data collected and how to withdraw consent at the website https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/partner-sites/
