Device and personal identification information
Countly mobile analytics platform collects device information from applications in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, carrier information, session duration, location information, custom events defined by SDK or personal information like mailing address or phone numbers defined by 3rd parties. Countly Mobile Analytics Platform SDK itself doesn’t collect user information and/or any data that ties or bounds to a specific user (e.g UDID, MSISDN or email), however companies using this SDK can modify it to suit their specific needs. Countly Mobile Analytics Platform only collects personally identifiable information from users only if 3rd parties submit such information to us. Countly cannot be kept liable from any information collected by 3rd parties.

Sharing your company, data and user information
We do not sell, trade, or rent application data or user identification information to others. We may share only generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any application or user identification information regarding applications and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for marketing purposes. We may share the name of your company with parties defined above for limited, informational and marketing purposes provided that you have given us your permission.
Compliance with children’s online privacy protection act (COPPA)
Protecting the privacy of the very young is critical to us. Our unmodified SDKs do not collect personally identifiable information by default, and we ask you not to collect this information from your applications. If you need to collect data from devices that are used by children, make sure it doesn’t conflict with COPPA rules.
