TL;DR: We don’t store any information about you or your habits unless necessary for the product to work as intended. We log web page requests to assist in resolving issues. Our products may also access 3rd-party services to provide certain features.

Web services

Logging

HASHBANG Productions web services keep a log of page requests and errors for 48 hours. This is an industry standard practise, and allows us to quickly track down issues when they arise. These logs include the URL requested, your IP address and browser identification, and date and time of the event.

Cydia sends your device model identification (such as iPhone8,2) and device unique identifier (UDID). The UDID is not used and not logged.

No other logging takes place. We do not use 3rd-party analytics services such as Google Analytics.

Assets

Some fonts used by HASHBANG Productions websites are provided by the Google Fonts service. YouTube videos are also embedded on some pages. These fall under the Google privacy policy. See also Google Fonts FAQ on privacy.

Some HASHBANG Productions websites use assets provided by MaxCDN’s BootstrapCDN. This is intended to improve page loading times, as some parts of the website will come from a 3rd-party service highly optimised for speed. Refer to MaxCDN’s privacy policy.

Network

HASHBANG Productions uses industry standard transport layer security (TLS) to encrypt all communications between you and our servers. Many HASHBANG Productions websites, including this one, are routed through the CloudFlare network. This service may use data gathered from your activity or other variables such as IP address to restrict access to potentially malicious visitors. Refer to CloudFlare’s privacy policy.

Downloads are provided on a content delivery network provided by Microsoft Azure. Refer to Microsoft’s online services privacy policy.

Software

Almost all software released by HASHBANG Productions does not ever use network resources. We believe there is no reason to access the network or store data about our users, unless this is necessary for the product to work as intended. Exceptions are listed below.

DailyPaper

DailyPaper requires images to be downloaded from Bing on a regular basis. Refer to Microsoft’s privacy policy.

TypeStatus for Mac

When the Messages app starts, TypeStatus for Mac connects to HASHBANG Productions in order to check for an update. These web requests are logged per the policy above. If an update is detected, a message is displayed requesting the user visit the website and download the update.
