Privacy Changes Coming to Simple In/Out on May 25th

We at Simply Made Apps take the privacy rights of our users very seriously. This starts from the very foundations of Simple In/Out. For example, Geofences in Simple In/Out monitor an area and update a user’s status if a user enables this feature. This location information is used only to check whether you have crossed a physical boundary. No location information is saved or transmitted. This means we can’t possibly store it, share it, or display it. Period.

Given our strong commitments to privacy, it will come as no surprise that we embrace the changes being spearheaded by the European Union to honor user privacy rights. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is one of the most comprehensive data privacy laws ever passed. It goes into effect on May 25, 2018.

We are committed to GDPR compliance for ourselves and our customers. Learn more about our GDPR support.

We are also in the final stages of joining both the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.

Towards these efforts, we have a new version of our privacy policy that further enumerates the rights of our users. It goes into effect on May 25th.

We know that trust in this industry is hard to come by, and we will do our very best to earn and keep your trust.
