Device Information:

When using BeatDrops the app will have to identify what device type you are using, the OS version/name, whether it has a functional mic (for recording) and what permissions you have allowed it to have. We have to do this to enable or disable certain device specific features. We may also make a record of this information on our server if it is required for statistical purposes (for example we want to see how many users are on Windows Phone) or for the functionality of the app.

Delete Data Request:

You can manually delete your account using the ‘Delete Account’ feature in the app from the top menu. This will delete your account and details from our server. This action can not be reversed and we will retain any backup of the deleted data. You can also email us if you want to delete your account or if you wish to also delete all your uploaded project files.

You have the right to request that we delete your FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging) ID, which is used for sending push notifications to your device. If you would like to request the deletion of your FCM ID, please contact us through through our website. We will honor your request and request to delete your FCM ID from Google’s servers. Please note that deleting your FCM ID will prevent us from sending push notifications to your device.
