Keyholder Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important. The Keyholder privacy policy has a few fundamental principles:

1. Keyholder doesn't ask for your personal information unless it truly needs it.

2. Your personal information is not shared with anyone except to comply with the law, develop

the product, or protect the author's rights.

3. Personal information is not stored on servers unless required for the on-going operation of the


This privacy policy specifically relates to the Keyholder Android and iOS applications and the

Keyholder server (collectively “Keyholder“). The author of Keyholder (hereafter “the author”) is C.

B. Newham.

App Users

Like most app operators, the author's Keyholder server collects non-personally-identifying

information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the device

type, operating system version, and the date and time of each server request. The author’s purpose

in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Keyholder's users

use it. From time to time, the author may release non-personally-identifying information in the

aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of Keyholder.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of Keyholder choose to interact with Keyholder in ways that require Keyholder to

gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Keyholder

gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, the author asks users who sign up for

an account within Keyholder to provide a name. In each case, Keyholder collects such information

only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the user’s interaction with

Keyholder. The author does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described

below. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it

may prevent them from engaging in some app-related activities.

Display of Potentially Personally-Identifying Information

Keyholder requires the name of a user when creating an account. Keyholder may display this

information publicly or provide it to others. It is up to the user to decide whether they wish to

provide accurate information when creating an account; there is no requirement that the names be

that of the actual user.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The author does not disclose personally-identifying information to any third party. The author will

not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

The author discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only

when required to do so by law, or when the author believes in good faith that disclosure is

reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the author, third parties or the public at

large. If you send a request (for example via a support email or via one of the feedback

mechanisms), the email address is not stored on the Keyholder server. The author takes all measures

reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of

potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, the author may change the Privacy Policy from time

to time, and at the author’s sole discretion. The author encourages users to frequently check this

page for any changes to the Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the app after any change in this

Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
