Privacy Policy

At BigWave Labs Inc (makers of Ocean), we strongly value your rights to privacy when using our apps and services.

Our business is to sell beautiful and intuitive software, not your personal data created or generated by using our applications.

Whenever possible, we prefer not collecting data from you.

But in those exceptions that we do collect data, the sections below are describing what type of information is collected, how long it is retained and the procedures you can use to request erasure from our third-party providers.

All data collected is secured using high-end security protocols. That data is made accessible on a need to know basis and only to internal employees who needs access to respond to your requests.

Ocean stores locally, on your computer, all emails content retrieved from your authorized Google account.

Along with that information, the proper identification data needed to access your email account (email address, account authentication and API tokens) is never processed nor stored by the Ocean cloud server infrastructure.

Tasks data is stored locally on your computer. You may elect to synchronize that data with Apple iCloud service so it is available with the Ocean for iOS application. The privacy policy governing data stored in iCloud is available from Apple here.

That service collects anonymous data about the section of the application that is at fault.This data is sent after the application is restarted and whenever there is fault to our third-party provider (sentry.io).

The data enables us to better diagnose the fault and provide a correction in a future update. The data contained in a "crash log" can include: the state of the app at the time of the fault, the device characterics where the app is running (screen size,  os version, memory size).

When installing your Apple Operating system, you may have given permission to Apple to collect crash logs on our behalf.  You can view Apple Policy about crash log collection here.

Backups are only accessible to privileged employees who perform system administration work. We consider the backups "cold storage" and we don't pull data from them unless a significant data loss event has occurred.
