1. Feed Services
In order to do its job, lire needs to interact with your feed service accounts. That interaction is subject to the privacy policies of your feed services:
1a. Web-based Login
Feedly has OAuth 2.0 web-based login processes. This web-based login process is facilitated by opening a SFAuthenticationSession on iOS 11 and above, or Safari View Controller on iOS 10. It is ensured that the initial URL for the login process is an HTTPS URL. Beyond that, there is no way to ensure that the entire login process happens via HTTPS. Feedly supports Redirect URLs with custom URL schemes. Therefore Feedly authorization codes are never transmitted to our web servers.
2. Web Service
We maintain a Web Service which works with the iOS and macOS apps to extract text content from web pages. Communication with this web service takes place exclusively via HTTPS. The only information transmitted to the web service are the URLs to the web pages from which text needs to be extracted. This information can in no way be used to identify any personal user or device information. The URLs and the extracted text content is cached by the web service for a short duration to prevent repetitive work in case other customers may want to fetch text content of the same web pages/URLs.
Occasionally, with consent of the customer, a customer might beta test an unreleased version of lire. When that happens, we will provide the customer’s name and email address to Apple. That process is subject to the TestFlight Terms and Conditions.
Displaying full-text views and displaying articles with embedded objects such as images requires making HTTP and HTTPS requests to third party websites. In the same way that a website can track direct visitors, a website may be able to track lire customers when retrieving embedded objects and full-text content, when opening a link from an article, and when opening an article on the web.

6. Beyond this Product
7. Sharing of Data
When legally required to do so, we will provide information to government authorities. Beyond that, we will never share customer data. We make a point of minimizing the customer information we have.
8. Personal Data
The personal data we have about customers is limited to email received from customers. Upon written request from a customer to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will supply the personal information we have about the inquiring customer. Similarly, we will delete our copy of said data upon written request. Any such request must include all email addresses from which that customer sent us email.
10. Changes to this Policy
Future versions of lire may require an update to this policy. Any changes will be noted here.
