On initial launch of a new version of eBoard | Observer, and on subsequent launches, the app may transmit, in encrypted form, a unique identifier for your Android device to HPAtoolbox servers for the sole purpose of determining conformance with HPAtoolbox application licensing policy.
As noted in the product description on the Google Play pages for eBoard | Observer, we assume that you understand that the primary functions of eBoard | Observer are to collect audio/video and location data as well as the markers that you create as you are observing and recording activities. We store your markers and location data in encrypted files on your device. We store the video (with audio) recordings on your device. Included in some of the data files is information about the device, Android version, and application version (collectively "App and device metadata").
As described above under "Information we collect", the unique device identifier is only used in tandem with Google Play services to ensure that you are conforming to HPAtoolbox application licensing policy and that you have completed an authorized purchase of a license to use the application on your device.
The marker and location data files and audio/video files are created for the purpose of providing an after-action review capability via synchronized playback of the data using other HPAtoolbox applications, such as eBoard | Objective (Android platform) or MOBAARS webAAR (Windows platform).
Should you choose to provide it to us via a product support request, the App and device metadata contained in eBoard | Observer data files may be used for troubleshooting purposes by HPAtoolbox support staff. It is not transmitted otherwise to HPAtoolbox by the eBoard | Observer application or any other HPAtoolbox application or service.
None. HPAtoolbox does not share your unique device identifier with anyone else, and as noted, only uses it to authorize use of your purchase on your specific device. The data collected and stored by eBoard | Observer is not shared with HPAtoolbox itself or any other entity. Should you choose to share such data files with HPAtoolbox in the course of resolving a support issue, HPAtoolbox will not share that data with any other entity without first requesting and obtaining permission from you.
Per Google and Android application policy, the eBoard | Observer application must request permission to use specific categories of device functionality. Included are permissions for use of location services, camera access, and audio recording, which together allow the application to record and store the location data and audio/video files that are central to its purpose. It does not collect location data unless you have enabled GPS-related location services using the settings on your device. The app uses the location and audio/video capabilities only when you have specified that you want to start an eBoard session, and stops using them when you end your session.
Some permission categories may be requested due to use of library code that require those permissions, others are to help provide smooth and responsive functionality when you or your device may want to switch to using another application or service on your device (e.g., to notify you that eBoard | Observer continues to record location and audio/video data when you answer an incoming phone call on your device while eBoard session recording is in progress).
Included in the categories required due to use of Google Play services is permission to read the phone state. However, eBoard | Observer does not inspect, access, collect, store, or make any other use of, any phone call history or contacts info or any data related to your phone usage; nor does it include or use any ability to make phone calls.
