PRIVACY POLICY FOR EASY VOICE RECORDER AND EASY VOICE RECORDER PRO

Thank you for downloading Easy Voice Recorder (“EVR”) or Easy Voice Recorder Pro (“EVR Pro”). EVR and EVR Pro were developed by, and are owned and operated by, Digipom Inc. (“Digipom”), a duly incorporated company in the province of Quebec, Canada.

It is the policy of Digipom to respect your privacy, and the privacy of all users of our applications. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) has been established to help you understand our commitment to protecting your privacy, and the steps we take to ensure it. This Policy was last modified on October 18, 2017. Digipom reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to modify the Policy.

Your privacy is very important to us and we want you to know everything we do and don’t do with the information you provide. Our guiding principle is that any information we collect from you will be treated with the utmost care and respect, and every effort will be made to ensure the information is kept private.

For purposes of the Policy, “Application” refers to EVR or EVR Pro, as the case may be. Application may also be described as either the “Android Application” or the “iOS Application”, for use in those operating system environments. Application also includes any Application updates and upgrades that Digipom may provide to you or make available to you, or that you obtain after the date you obtain your initial copy of the Application, to the extent that such items are not accompanied by a separate Privacy Policy.

Where the present Policy refers to “Digipom”, it may refer to the Application or Digipom or both, depending on the context.

BY INSTALLING, USING OR ACCESSING THE APPLICATION, YOU HEREBY ACCEPT THE POLICY WITHOUT QUALIFICATION. You have also explicitly accepted the Terms and Privacy Policy following your installation of the Application and launch of the Application for the first time. If you do not agree to this Policy, do not use or access the Application, and delete it from the device on which the Application was installed (the “Device”).

This Policy also covers Digipom’s treatment of any information or Personal Information that Digipom may share with its business partners or other third parties under very limited circumstances.

This Policy does not apply to the general practices and treatment of information (whether personal or not) by third parties that Digipom does not own or control, including but not limited to any third-party websites or services that you elect to access through the Application or via a link from the Application (“Third-Party Website”), or to individuals that Digipom does not manage or employ. While we attempt to facilitate access or link only to those Third-Party Websites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third-Party Websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third-Party Website you access.

Finally, this Policy does not cover any Personal Information you send to Digipom via any non-secured mode of communications such as email, instant messenger, or Twitter. Communications via these methods may be subject to interception, loss, or alteration. While we welcome your comments and suggestions sent to us in this manner, we encourage you to carefully consider what Personal Information you send to Digipom via these methods.

Limited Gathering of Information for Statistical Purposes

Where you have downloaded the Application, Digipom may automatically collect certain information using third-party programs to help us understand how our users use the Application, but none of this information identifies you personally.
