Dango operates in part through the use of an artificially intelligent predictive engine. This engine relies on your past usage of Dango to better predict what content you are likely to want, based on the text that Dango is able to read on-screen. As you use Dango, it learns your particular usage preferences over time, improving the accuracy of its predictions. This functionality requires the gathering and storing on your device of aggregate statistical data. This data could include lists and counts of emoji, stickers & GIFs used along with application context. We actively avoid storing information typed into sensitive fields such as password fields.
As is standard with Android applications distributed through the Google Play Store, Google gathers and shares certain non-personally identifiable information (such as usage statistics) with the particular application developer using built-in functionality of the Google Play Store. Whirlscape receives this non-personally identifiable data, as well as further similar anonymous data gathered on the device such as feature usage, through third party analytics packages such as Google Analytics and Mixpanel. Whirlscape uses this data for its business operations and planning, including application improvement, debugging, and marketing. By understanding which features people use, we’re able to make Dango better!
No personally identifying information, or text that you type, is transmitted to Whirlscape unless you explicitly opt in. Such an opt-in request will not necessarily occur immediately, especially if this functionality is not yet built into the Dango application. If you do opt in to share your data, some subset of the information gathered on your device will be transmitted to Whirlscape for storage and analysis. This data will be anonymized and stored separately from any personally identifying information, unless you explicitly consent to store the information together, for instance to enable automatic cloud backup and restoration of your personal language models.
