BeatDrops Beat Maker displays our own in house and third party ads. You can disable ads by purchasing the disable ads in app purchase. When you click on an ad we collect anonymous data such as your location, IP address and device type (such as Android or iPhone). The location is not personal and will be in the form of “City, Country”. This information will be kept confidential by us and not passed on to any third party. We reserve the right to use this data ourselves for the purpose of improving our service and business.
Some mobile app ad network providers may upload data from your phone to deliver more personalized ads and improve user experience such as device identifiers, location data or other demographic or interest data. This information will be transferred in secure encrypted form.
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 feaures. 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.
