Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

This Privacy Policy applies to your use of (regardless of means of access) any of the current set of products from OpenMobile, collectively referred to as ”OpenMobile Products”, such as the OpenMobile website (, ACL™ (all versions), OAS™, NDKgo!™, AppMall™, the OpenMobile Developer Portal, and OpenMobile’s Help and Support forum.

A “Device” is any computer used to access the OpenMobile Products, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device.

OpenMobile Products can enable you to play applications developed by third parties, individually and collectively referred to as Third Party Apps, on a Device, such as an Android app on a Device forked or Google-certified Android, Microsoft Windows, Tizen, or other Linux-based operating systems.

1. Information we collect from you
All of the different forms of data, content, and information, including that which can be used to identify an individual, as described below are collectively referred to as “Information”. We collect Information to provide better services to all of our users and to provide the best user experience for using OpenMobile Products on your particular Device. We collect Information in two ways:

A. Information you give us: In the course of you using the OpenMobile Products, we may collect Information with your consent that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”).
For example, if you contact us via email or our electronic Help and Support Forum, we may collect some Personal Information such as email address and contact information, and also keep your message to respond to your request.

B. Information we get from your use of OpenMobile Products: We (or our service providers acting on our behalf) may collect Information about the OpenMobile Products that you use and how you use them. This information includes information that may identify you as well as statistical information (“Analytics”) that does not identify you. Some Analytics may be correlated with your Personal Information. Usage Information may include:

i. Device Information: We may collect Device-specific Information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique Device identifiers and mobile network Information including phone number). We may associate your Device identifiers or phone number with your OpenMobile Account.

ii. Log Information: When you use OpenMobile Products, we may automatically record or log Information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the OpenMobile Products. This may include:

• The Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address;

• Other interactions with the OpenMobile Products and third party advertisements.

The OpenMobile Products that include websites may also use the following cookies:

We use cookies to enhance your experience on our website. Cookies are pieces of information that are stored on the hard drive of your computer and are used for record-keeping purposes. Use of cookies facilitates web surfing by performing certain functions.

iii. Location Information: When you use a location-enabled app, we may collect, process and retain Information about your actual location. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your Device that may, for example, provide Information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. The location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by us to provide and improve location based products and services. By using a location-enabled app, you consent to us processing Information about your actual location.

iv. Third Party App Information: When you download and install Third Party Apps, or when you permit them to be updated, we may record Information about the source, such as the name of the app store or app market, its IP address, the application version number, or any unique application identification number associated with them.

v. Local storage: We may collect Information about storage consumed on your Device by Android apps (ACL-enabled or native) and their app-specific data.

2. Children’s Information
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 16. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with Personal Information, we take steps to remove such Personal Information and terminate the child’s account unless parental or guardian consent is given.
