Typewise Keyboard Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application Typewise Keyboard for mobile devices that was created by icoaching gmbh. Typewise Keyboard is an alternative keyboard app for iOS and Android.

Information collection

Protecting your personal data and maintaining your trust is core to our mission at Typewise Keyboard. Principally, all information you type in Typewise Keyboard is safe and never leaves your device. Please note that this does not extend to any app in which you are using Typewise Keyboard. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective app for further information.

Typewise Keyboard automatically collects data only for the purpose of auto correction, which you can completely disable in the app settings. The data collected is limited to single words that you type, and is stored in a user dictionary. The dictionary only contains a list of words and a count of how many times the word has been typed. The data is retained as long as the app is installed on your device or until you manually erase the user dictionary in the app settings.

Where a field has been flagged by a website or app as denoting a password field or payment information, Typewise Keyboard does not log, store or learn from this information. On iOS, Typewise Keyboard won’t show when entering information in secure text fields; instead, the standard Apple Keyboard will show (see Apple Support Page).

All data collected is exclusively stored locally on your device. Typewise Keyboard does not access the internet and does not transmit any type of data. Consequently, we or third parties do not have access to your data.

Typewise Keyboard also does not collect information about the location of your mobile device.

Opt-out rights

You can stop all collection of information by Typewise Keyboard easily by uninstalling the app. You can prevent the app from storing any words in the dictionary by deactivating the auto correction feature in the app settings. You are also able to completely erase your user dictionary in the app settings.

Third-party keyboard warnings

You may encounter an alert when installing Typewise Keyboard on your device, warning that third-party keyboards may collect or log sensitive data such as passwords, credit card numbers or street addresses. Typewise Keyboard is designed not to receive, store or transmit any such sensitive data.

This warning appears with all third-party keyboard, whether the keyboard actually collects this type of information or not.

Changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy here and informing you via our email newsletter. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.

We released this privacy policy on June 17, 2019. Future key changes will be recorded in a change log here.

 

Sincerely,
your Typewise team
