Does Witty read and store everything I write? Is Witty even spying on me?
We are glad you are thinking about privacy - this is important. We hear concerns like this regularly, and we understand them. You are not the only one having them, and we would like to provide some clarity.
It is important to us to be absolutely transparent when it comes to security. The trust of our users is more important to us than collecting data. That's why we have set up a page where we explain in detail and in easy-to-understand language what data we collect.
In a nutshell, here are the main points:
- All data is collected anonymously. Only if users actively state that they want to see their own statistics do we link this data to a user.
- In addition to anonymous data collection, we always remove URLs, emails, and phone numbers from the data to reduce the likelihood that personal information will be collected.
- We don't store everything you write. We only collect a few words before and after the highlighted term (100 characters). And we only do this, when a user accepts an alternative or chooses to ignore a highlighted term. This allows us to learn in what context a term should or should not be highlighted. This is done anonymously and paid users can choose to disable any storage on our side.
We hope this provides some clarity.
