Andvestigate - Privacy Policy

Posted in Projects


I'm not so good with lawyer speak. I usually just try to say what I mean in a manner that is easily understood by those around me. Which is why privacy policies, terms and conditions, and the like are hard for me. I know that I must have some degree of legal speak to protect myself from you, but I also prefer to trust you.

With that in mind, consider the following privacy policy a series of promises between OSMstudios (myself and some of my friends) and you.


This document describes the behavior and legal use of information collected in Andvestigate (the program; the application), a software application for Android phones, from OSMstudios (I, we, us). Other applications have their own privacy policies.
