A lot of companies say they care about your privacy — we say it and mean it! We’re committed to building products and services that help make your mobile experience safer.
ArmorforAndroid.com will not sell your information to third parties. We will not share your personally identifiable, registration, or client device information or backup or location data with third-parties except under the following conditions:
You always have the ability to close your account or prevent your data from being accessible through ArmorforAndroid.com Services.
If you delete location data, it is anonymized on our production systems and there is no longer a link between your account and any saved location information. If you delete backup data, that data will become inaccessible through your account. If you delete your account, all information saved on your account becomes inaccessible.
The data that becomes inaccessible through your account may remain on our production servers for a period of time to enable you to recover your account or your data if you have accidentally deleted it. If you have accidentally deleted information from your account, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to recover it. Aggregate and anonymous information incorporating or derived from your data may remain on our servers indefinitely. For example, we may store a count of the number of devices that have ever encountered a particular piece of malware. Your data may remain on a backup server or media indefinitely. We perform backups to protect your data in the case of a problem with our production servers.
Registration information you provide. Upon creating your ArmorforAndroid.com account, you may provide personally-identifiable information including your email address, password, street address, zip code and phone number to ArmorforAndroid.com. You may also enter your mobile phone number on our website to initiate a text message with directions on how to download the app and register.
Credit Card Information. If you wish to upgrade to a premium account, in most cases we collect your full name, credit card number, expiration date and security code. We use this information to bill you for services.
Geo Location Information. We ask for permission to access your geo-location information so that we are able to indicate when you are going 10MPH or faster in order to enable the application to lock the keyboard and not allow you to make calls, send texts, or read emails. You may turn this off at the device level, however this will limit your ability to use the application and take advantage of the services.
Information Collected through our Mobile Application.
Our purpose in collecting this information is to provide you with the ArmorforAndroid.com products and services and to continue to improve and expand them. We use your information to operate, maintain, and provide all of the features and functionality of the ArmorforAndroid.com Services that you register for, to track and analyze your preferences and trends in order to improve the quality and design of the ArmorforAndroid.com Services, lock the phone keyboard once a vehicle has reached 10 MPH, send customized responses to contacts who try to text or email while you are driving, request permission to override the current settings of the administrator, select panic mode in the case of an accident, and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services. Some of the Services may be supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions; hence your personal information would be used in order to generate targeted advertising and promotions by third parties. For example:
We currently offer a number of features across the mobile platforms we support that you may choose to enable or disable. If you choose to use these features, we may collect additional information in order to provide you with these services, you may opt-out at any time by contacting ArmorforAndroid support via phone (US Toll Free: 1-800-832-2807, UK Toll Free: 0-808-189-1341, Worldwide: +44-203-318-7138) or by email (email@example.com).
ArmorforAndroid.com Security and Anti-Virus products (available on different platforms) protect your device from malware and spyware. They scan files and applications as they are installed or accessed, automatically scan your entire device on a periodic basis, and regularly update your threat definitions. In order to perform these functions, we need to collect information about the applications and files present on your device, the results of any scans performed by our services, and actions you take as a result of scanning. We use this information to provide you with the Security and Anti-Virus services (including providing you a report of the security activity on your device on our web application and via email and analyzing applications and files in the wild so that we can provide better protection from security threats), to help people better understand mobile applications and their devices, and to improve ArmorforAndroid.com Services.
What types of information Security and Anti-Virus collect:
Information about the type of device you are using and the operating system you are running. We collect information about the applications on your device in order to conduct a scan. We also may collect information about how applications behave on your device (e.g. is an application sending premium-rate text messages that charge money to your phone bill) and the network services your applications communicate with in order to determine if any applications are behaving maliciously (e.g. is an application talking to a server known to host phishing websites).
Information about scans and scan results. Each time ArmorforAndroid.com performs a scan, we collect information that describes what files and applications are identified by the scan as potentially undesirable and your remediation choice (e.g. uninstall or ignore).
How the information is used:
Our purpose in collecting application data and security scan data is to provide you with Anti-Virus. We also use this data to optimize and improve this and other ArmorforAndroid.com services and products.
We may aggregate your data with other customers’ data in non-personally identifiable form to better understand current malware and spyware threats and to improve the Anti-Virus service. We may also share this anonymous aggregated data publicly to help others understand mobile threats and gain insights into particular mobile applications.
If supported on your device, ArmorforAndroid.com Firewall protects your device from attacks over network interfaces. In order to provide this functionality, we collect information about traffic that is blocked by the firewall service. We use this information to provide you with information on the ArmorforAndroid.com web application about the firewall activity on your device and to improve the ArmorforAndroid.com Firewall service.
What types of information Firewall collects:
Firewall Event Data. We collect information about packets that are blocked by the firewall including header information (e.g. what server the packet was sent to, what server it came from, and the reason it was blocked).
How the information is used:
Our purpose in collecting firewall event data is to provide you with information about firewall events that have occurred on your device and to improve the ArmorforAndroid.com Firewall service. For example, the ArmorforAndroid.com web application reports the number of firewall events your device generates each day.
ArmorforAndroid.com Backup stores a copy of data that you choose to back up from your phone on a secure server. The data may include your contacts, call history, pictures, text messages, and other data. ArmorforAndroid.com Backup automatically backs up your data weekly or daily, based on your settings, restores your data to a new or existing phone, and allows you to retrieve your data anytime at ArmorforAndroid.com.
What types of information Backup collects:
Backup Data. Backup transmits a copy of the data on your device that you choose to back up to a server using an encrypted protocol.
How the information is used:
If you choose to use the ArmorforAndroid.com Backup feature, we will use the data you provide to deliver the Backup service. In order to notify you in the case of malicious behavior on your phone, ArmorforAndroid.com may scan both the data that is stored on your phone and backed up to our servers. For example, some malware has been known to spread via malicious text messages or steal money by dialing expensive phone numbers; to detect this, our system would scan the SMS messages or call history stored on your phone or backed up on our servers.
ArmorforAndroid.com Missing Device helps you find and secure your phone if it is lost or stolen. You can locate your phone on a map using location information provided by your phone, activate a loud siren even if your volume is turned down to find a phone lost nearby, wipe your phone, or lock your phone. Features and settings are controlled through our website at ArmorforAndroid.com.
What types of information Missing Device collects:
Location Data. ArmorforAndroid.com derives location information in two ways. We may receive it directly from your mobile device or, in some situations where we receive cell tower or Wi-Fi hotspot information. We may use third-party service providers to translate that information into usable location information.
How the information is used:
Our purpose in collecting this information is to provide you with the location of your phone when you request it. If you activate the locate feature, your browser will send location information to Google Maps in order to display a map of the location within your ArmorforAndroid.com account webpage. When activating this feature, we track the phone’s location for several minutes in order to provide an accurate location for you. This information is retained in your account history for as long as you wish and may be deleted by you at any time within your account settings. Once you choose to delete this information or disable your account, ArmorforAndroid.com anonymizes this data so that it is no longer associated to an individual’s personal information and kept for aggregate statistical purposes only.
If supported on your device, ArmorforAndroid.com Safe Browsing is a feature that identifies and warns you of unsafe websites so that you can choose to avoid visiting them.
What types of information Safe Browsing collects:
URLs. To provide the Safe Browsing service, we may transmit the URLs you visit on your phone to a ArmorforAndroid.com-provided or third-party service to determine if the URLs are unsafe (e.g. contain a phishing attack, malware, or exploit). If a URL you visit is determined to be unsafe, we store a record of the unsafe URL.
How the information is used:
We use the record of unsafe URLs you visit (1) to provide you with notice that you attempted to reach an unsafe site (e.g. when you log in to the ArmorforAndroid.com website or via e-mail) and (2) to improve our product. If you do not want us to record the unsafe URLs you visit, you may turn Safe Browsing off; all other ArmorforAndroid.com features will continue to function.
