When you use Tessie, you trust us with your personal information. In this privacy policy, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our apps and services.

Information collected through our apps

The only piece of personal information Tessie collects is your email address.

How do we use your information?

We use your email to provide you with a Tessie account.

Will your information be shared with anyone?

No, unless we are legally forced to share it.

Do we use Google?

The app uses Google Maps APIs. You can find the Google Maps APIs Terms of Service here. You can find Google's general Privacy Policy here. The app also uses Google Firebase, an application backend. You can find the Firebase privacy policy here.

By using our apps, you agree to be bound by Google's Terms of Service. You agree to allow us to obtain your location for use within the app. You may revoke your consent at anytime.

How long do we keep your information?

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). No purpose in this policy will require us keeping your personal information for longer than the period of time in which users have an account with us.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it.

How do we keep your information safe?

We have implemented stringent technical and organizational security to protect the security of any information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our app is at your own risk. You should only access the service within a secure environment.

Do we collect information from minors?

We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the app, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent's use of the app. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us at support@tessie.io.

You may review, change, or terminate your account at any time.

If you are resident in the European Economic Area and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you also have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here.

If you have questions or comments about your privacy rights, you may email us at support@tessie.io.

If you would at any time like to review or change the information in your account or terminate your account, you can log into your account and update your user account.

Upon your request to terminate your account, we will deactivate or delete your account and information from our active databases. However, some information may be retained in our files to prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms of Service and/or comply with legal requirements.

Do we make updates to this policy?

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated "Revised" date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. If we make material changes to this privacy notice, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification.
