Tracking of App Crashes
apreet works with an SDK from Firebase Crashlytics, provided by Google LLC, with offices at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043. This SDK allows us to immediately see reports of bugs in our iOS and Android app. After a crash, the app will send certain information about the incident to Crashlytics including device type, OS version, and certain information about the phone, the time of the crash, the state of the application at the time of the crash, and stack traces. To provide us with information on crashes and malfunctions in the app, Crashlytics uses its Installation UUIDs to measure the number of users impacted by a crash and minidump data to process NDK crashes. In case of a crash, the following personal data is processed and transmitted to Firebase Crashlytics:
- IP-address of the device and
- device information, such as a RFC-4122 Universally Unique Identifier UUID to deduplicate crashes, the timestamp of when the crash occurred, the app’s bundle identifier and version number, the device’s OS name and version number, the device’s model name, CPU architecture, amount of RAM and disc space and language.
Firebase Crashlytics retains crash stack traces, extracted minidump data, and associated identifiers (including Crashlytics Installation UUIDs) for 90 days. Data transmitted to Firebase Crashlytics is neither stored nor transferred to other services or resources nor associated with other data available to Google.
Personal data processed by Firebase Crashlytics is transferred to Google servers in the U.S.

Server Log Files – Apreet App
We’ll automatically collect server logs that your device sends to our servers when using our app, these are:
• Your devices, device OS, OS version
• Your apreet app version
• Your current location (if you granted us permission to use it)
• Time of requests
We are attributing this data to your account.
We track the server logs to better understand your usage of our Software & Service and to improve the service for you.
We may analyze the server logs if we see irregular usage patterns or suspect illegal use.
How and Why Do You Use My Contact Data?
apreet processes your contacts (names, phone numbers, email addresses, addresses) periodically, both of people already using apreet and other contacts. You confirm that you are authorized to provide us with these numbers and addresses.
apreet determines if any of the phone numbers in your address book is already associated with an apreet user. If that is the case and if your mobile number is in that user’s address book, we match you as friends and show both of you where your paths will cross in the next 4 weeks. For all other contacts, apreet processes the location information in the address book, i.e., the city. For any destination on your itinerary, apreet shows you contacts nearby.
Note that we do not read or transfer the notes section of your contacts in your address book. These are strictly private, and we are keeping it that way.
We do not write
to your address book, i.e. change or create new contact information. We process your contact data internally – we do not share
your contact data with third parties.
How and Why Do You Use My Calendar Data?
apreet is using your calendar events to build your itinerary for the next 4 weeks. This is mainly based on the dates and location information of the calendar events. For flights, we determine the airport of departure and arrival based on the Title/Summary/Subject and the Location data.
Note that we do not read or transfer data in the description or notes section of your calendar events. These are strictly private, and we are keeping it that way.
We do not write to your calendar, i.e. change or create new events.
We process your calendar data internally – we do not share your calendar data with third parties.
How and Why Do You Use My Location Information?
We collect and use – with your permission – the location information from your device when you choose to use location-related features, like using your current location as a starting point of your itinerary – we will try matching it to a nearby town/city and your contacts that have an address in your address book that is close by and/or contacts using apreet currently or planning to be in the near future nearby.
Also, with your permission on iOS only, we access your current location up to twice a day in the background to determine your matches. If any favorite contacts are nearby, you’ll receive a notification (if you’ve granted us permission to do so).
We might also use your location information to troubleshoot errors like mistaken localization or matches.
You can turn off the app’s access to location information in the device’s settings. If the app gets the starting point wrong, it feels “wrong” – that’s why we believe that using the current location as a starting point of your itinerary is an important part of your user experience – and therefore, we recommend enabling location permission.
We process your location data internally – we do not share
your location data with third parties.
How Do You Use Notifications?
apreet notifies you – with your permission – of contacts you may meet 3 days before a trip. It notifies you of friends and contacts joining apreet. And new destinations added to your itinerary.
How Do You Use My Photos?
You may select and upload a profile picture from your photo library.
Who Has Access to My Data?
How is My Data Secured?
We take precautions to ensure that your data is kept private. We use industry-standard measures to secure your personal data from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. We also restrict access to users’ data to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff.
We use encryption to make sure your data is kept safe whenever it is transmitted between your mobile device and our servers. Note that we cannot guarantee the security of your account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of your data at any time.
