Third Party Services
In addition to the Services we provide directly, we also use third party service providers (collectively referred to as “Third Party Services”) who operate their own Privacy Policies (listed below) and may also provide options to 'opt-out' of data collection. As a company, we trust all the Third Party Services we use and deem their services important for our effective operation.
So you can find out more about the services we use, and in turn those you may use, whilst interacting with our Services, we are also providing information on what we use the services for and links to their associated Privacy Policies.
The Third Party Services we use:
All application data (that is the data you create and add to Stitcht) is stored on Firebase. This data is never shared with any other services unless you explicitly choose to do so through the sharing options available in Stitcht.
Data shared to Third Party Services as detailed above may be stored on the servers of the associated Third Party Service.
We regularly backup your data that is held on Firebase to limit the risk of any loss of data.
We take reasonable measures to protect any personal information we may hold about you in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
