If Speaking Email is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of the company, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.
     

  4. We may use the information you provided to us for marketing purposes, for example, to contact you from time to time to provide you with important information, updates or required notices.
     

  5. Your emails may be cached in our system, but no person at Speaking Email or any other organisation will have access to your emails.
     

  6. Speaking Email may collect certain information automatically including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile devices unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the application. This information will not be shared by Speaking Email with any third party, unless required by law.
     

  7. Speaking Email does not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device.
     

  8. If using Gmail, this is a direct connection to Gmail and does not go through our servers. Replying to emails is also directly through Gmail, so no information will pass via our servers. We have no access to this data.
     

  9. Speaking Email will collect only the personal information about you that is needed for you to login and use our system. This includes your email address and name. Speaking Email does not capture or record any data about your friends, likes, demographics or other personal information.

  11. We have implemented reasonable security measures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of the collected information and prevention of unauthorized access.
     

  12. We release Personal Information only when we believe release is appropriate for legal compliance and law enforcement (including to government agencies with statutory law enforcement responsibilities); to facilitate court proceedings; enforce or apply our terms and conditions; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Speaking Email, our users, or others.
     

  13. We may use data relating to your use of Speaking Email (for example, how often you use the app and how many emails are downloaded) to understand and analyse trends in connection with the usage of the App, and for auditing, learning and improving the App. No information that can identify individual users will be shared with any third party.
     

  14. If you wish to stop using Speaking Email you may ask us to delete any Personal Information you have submitted to us. Please contact us at feedback@speaking.email to make that request. We will delete any Personal Information about you that we hold.
     

  15. We will retain collected information only for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes of helping users listen to the email on the move and for our own analytics. When information is no longer needed, we shall delete it using reasonable measures to protect the information from unauthorized access or use.
     

Security


  1. If using a Gmail account, this is a direct connection to Gmail and does not through our servers. Replying to emails is also directly through Gmail, so no information will pass via our servers. We have no access to this data.
     

  2. Gmail account security is managed by Oauth - this means that your security is directly with Google.
     

  3. If using an IMAP/POP account, your emails are parsed on our server. In this case your data may be cached in our servers to provide performance and server-based email parsing. Your data is securely stored, transmitted, and not made available to Speaking Email employees or any third parties. Speaking Email will not use this email storage for any purpose other than caching to provide performant access to you when you are using the app.
     

  4. Speaking Email will collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your phone using local storage. Files will be saved on your phone for this purpose. These files are saved locally only and not sent to Speaking Email servers or any third party.
     

  5. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorised employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Application. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
