Privacy

User privacy is a central concern of Incognia.

Regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) require mobile developers to ask for permission before collecting user data. Incognia SDK provides a mechanism to handle this in a user-friendly way.


How does Incognia deal with privacy?#

Incognia uses privacy by design as a default strategy, that is, thinking of privacy from the conception to the final use of the product.

The technology is developed in a way that prevents access to information capable of re-identifying users. Incognia does not collect unique static device identifiers (such as IMEI and MAC), associated accounts (e-mail and telephone), civil identification data (name and social security number), as well as sensitive data – information that reveals ethnicity, religion, political opinion, religious, philosophical, political or union entities membership or data regarding health, sex life, genetics, and biometrics.

Note that although explicit consent is not required, the obligations of transparency and the rights of the data subjects must be observed. So you should provide information in your privacy policy about the processing of device data by third parties for fraud prevention activities. And when asking for location permission you should be clear about how the personal data will be used and what benefit will be offered in return to the data subject, but it is necessary to find a balance between being transparent without compromising security.
