Third-Party Providers

We share your personal information with the following third parties:

  • Firebase Authentication: In the app, Firebase Authentication is primarily used to handle your login and registration processes using email/password authentication. Firebase Authentication ensures that you have secure and reliable access to the app and your personal data.
  • Firebase Analytics: Firebase Analytics is used to analyze the app's performance, understand your behavior, and make informed decisions about the app's development and improvement.

You typically do not have direct control over the sharing of your data with these third parties, such as Firebase Authentication and Google AdMob. The use of these services is integrated into the app's functionality, and you cannot manage your consent to share data with these third parties directly from the app. If you do not wish to share your data with these third parties, you can choose to delete your account from the app.

We respect your rights to privacy and data protection and will do our best to accommodate your requests.

5. Data Protection and Security

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction.
