Support and Privacy Policy

Please email me if you have any issues, bugs, comments, or suggestions.  I will answer all emails as-soon-as-possible, but I promise a response within 72 hours.  You can also check the FAQ for more support information.





I am a mom and a developer.  I design my apps around the fact that children are using the app and the device.   I do my best to balance technologies so that the child can play in a safe environment, and that I can run a successful company and be able to provide great apps.  The following is information about how my apps work and how it relates to yours and your child’s privacy:

Version 1.7 and Above of Kids Pattern Recognition, Kids, Sequences, Counting and Patterns and Kids Christmas Pattern Game and version 1.14 of Learn To Read and Learn to Read Lite

None of the current versions of my apps collect information.  The Android versions have the ability to anonymously monitor the use of the app, to support the internal operations of my products and provide me an aggregate summary about how the app is used.   The data would be stored on a privately hosted server using a framework called Piwik.  Generic information about the device, general location data (based on anonymized IP, not GPS), and app use, could be collected.  This information would  not shared with anyone else, and would be automatically deleted after 90 days.  This functionality is presently turned off, but I may choose to turn it on in the future.  If I do so, I would update this privacy policy.

If my app fails, the app store you downloaded it from may collect generic non-personally identifiable information to send me about the failure.

Other Platform Specific Information:
Amazon - If you downloaded or purchased my app from Amazon, they may collect information about the use of my app, and share that information with me.  View Amazon's privacy policy here.

Google Play - If you downloaded or purchased my app from Google Play, they may collect information about the use of my app and share that information with me.  View Google Play's privacy policy here.

The App Store - I do not collect any information from these apps, and I am not aware of Apple collecting any information on the use of my app.  

Prior Versions:
The prior versions of my apps make use of analytics software.  I use Google Analytics as a third party analytics company.   You can view their privacy policy here.   I do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information.  Generic information about the device, general location data (based on anonymized IP, not GPS), and app use, are collected to provide me an aggregate summary about how the app is used.  This information is not shared with anyone else, and the settings in Google Analytics have been set so that it is not shared with any other Google products.

The prior versions of my apps track software failures.  Some of this information is collected by the markets that distribute the apps, some of this information is collected via code written into the app.  If the app fails, I am sent a notification that provides me information about where the failure occurred in the code, as well non-identifiable information about the device, such as the device’s brand, screen size, and capabilities.  I use this data to make sure my apps are running correctly, and if they aren’t, it allows me to fix problems quickly.

Prior versions of my app purchased through The App Store have affiliate links through Linkshare, meaning if you click on the link and purchase other apps a portion of the cost will go to me.  Information about what you bought and the fact that you came from my app first is collected.


*LINKS – There are links in my apps to my website, to the market for other apps I offer, and to rate the apps.  Once you leave my app other privacy policies may apply.

*Disabling internet access (aka set device to airplane mode) before opening the app will prevent any data from being sent, and restrict access via links.

ADS – My apps do not have any third party ads.   The only advertisements in the apps are for my own products.

IN APP PURCHASING – My apps do not use in-app purchasing.  All apps are fully functional via initial download, though free apps may have less content than their paid counterparts.

SOCIAL MEDIA – My apps are not connected to social media in any way.

CHANGES - If I decide to change this policy changes the changes will be posted here.  Please refer to it periodically for review.
