Fiskl Data Usage

Effective Date: December 1, 2014

In order to function properly, Fiskl needs access to several different software components and services, some of which contain private user information. The purpose of this article is to describe what data is used by Fiskl and specifically how the data is used.
When users install, modify, or use a Fiskl application, they may see permission requests or alerts regarding all of the device capabilities an application could potentially use. For example, Android users will see a long, generic, technical list of device capabilities upon installation of an app, while iOS users will see device permission requests pop up as they use an application. Rather than list such permissions exhaustively, this article describes how each Fiskl application uses key device features that may access or use private user information.

All Fiskl Applications

Hardware Identity: Fiskl looks up your device's unique hardware identifiers (IMEI, SIM number or other identifier) and description. Fiskl stores this on our servers in order to:

  • - allow you to review and revoke devices from Account Settings > Applications
  • - enable promotional account rewards
  • - calculate anonymous aggregate statistics on the number of unique devices accessing the Fiskl service

Fiskl Android

  • - Contact Data: This is used to allow the Android application to access your contact list in order to autocomplete email addresses when you email a note.

  • - Location Services: Location Services are used to determine the device's current location so that it can be attached to new notes. It is also used when plotting one or more notes in the map view and is used to provide additional information for automatic note titles.
  • - Camera: The first time a user starts to take a photo or scan a receipt, he/she will be prompted to allow Fiskl access to the device's camera application. This permission is stored to allow Fiskl to capture photos from this device without prompting in the future.
  • - Sensitive Log Data: This is used to help improve the product if you encounter a problem. For example, if the application crashes, you can select "Send logs" from the "Settings" screen. This will attach a log file to an email message. You can always review the contents before sending them to Fiskl Support.

Fiskl iOS

  • - Contact Data: The contact list is read when the user attempts to send a Fiskl item via email or adds a contact to the Fiskl Client list.
  • - Camera Roll: The system Camera Roll is accessed when the user chooses to import a receipt or similar item.
  • - Camera: The first time a user starts to take a photo or scan a receipt, he/she will be prompted to allow Fiskl access to the device's camera application. This permission is stored to allow Fiskl to capture photos from this device without prompting in the future.
