1. What information do we collect?
Your Apple ID
By downloading our app directly from the app store and using your apple ID to purchase our app subscriptions and other in-app purchases, your information remains secure within the apple ecosystem. We use your apple ID solely to link our subscriptions to you, so you can access our paid services.
If you choose to share a preset with us (see user submissions), your Apple ID will be included with your preset submission so that we can identify the source. Should we decide to publish your preset, we will ensure that your Apple ID is not visible to the public. Please be assured that we do not store your Apple ID for any other purpose, as all other processes are handled by Apple directly.
We kindly request that you take the time to review the information regarding how Apple handles your data, which is provided here.
Using Apple as the payment provider you already utilize for your other applications, you do not need to provide us with any of your payment information, such as your credit card number. Apple takes care of the heavy lifting, so you can rest assured that your information is secure.
We have partnered up with RevenueCat, which is a mobile subscription platform that helps app developers to manage and grow their in-app subscription business. It provides tools and infrastructure to handle billing, analytics, and customer management across different platforms, including iOS, Android, and web.
The following information may be received and processed by RevenueCat through Apples StoreKit integration:
- “End User Technical Information”: This refers to technical information related to an end user’s mobile device or computer, such as: device type, operating system,
- “End User Transaction Information”: This refers to transaction information related to an end user’s activities with respect to your app or other digital product, and may include:
- Last seen time that the end user used your app or digital product;
- Apple receipt file
- “Optional End User Information”: This refers to information that we may receive if you select or enable this option in our products, which may include:
- User ID of the end user in your app or digital product; and
- Additional attribution or metadata associated with an end user.
User text input
When using our app, you may be requested to provide text input. This information is essential as it enables the app to generate the output you require. This is a fundamental part of the primary purpose of our app. Without this text-based input, the app would not be able to function as intended.
The app is designed to read text input from your clipboard or manually typed into the text input field. Only when initiating the processing of your text input, the app will send the texts to OpenAI and provide a reply. We kindly advise you not to submit any private, personal or sensitive information such as credit card numbers, health information, addresses or other personal information.
Our app features a convenient 'Presets' function that allows users to quickly add preconfigured settings to their prompts, making the creative writing process faster and more efficient. Additionally, users can create their own presets to customize the app to their individual needs.
If you have created a particularly effective preset, you can submit it to us for internal verification and possible publication on our app, website, or other media for other users to benefit from. Should we decide to publish your preset, we will ensure that your Apple ID is not visible to the public.
Should you choose to provide us with data such as suggestions, feedback, or other information, we will securely store it in order to address your request until the purpose for which it was submitted is no longer relevant to either you or us. These informations are willingly submitted by you through contact forms in the app, on our website, or through direct contact.
This app uses functions of the analysis service Google Analytics provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics enables us to analyse the behaviour patterns of app users. To that end, we receive a variety of user data, such as active subscription, the utilised operating system, and the user’s origin. This data is assigned to the Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA), which is a random device identifier assigned by Apple to a user’s device. Google uses this to track data so they can deliver customised advertising. The IDFA is used for tracking and identifying a user (without revealing personal information).
Furthermore, Google Analytics allows us to record your interactions with the app. Google Analytics uses various modelling approaches to augment the collected data sets and uses machine learning technologies in data analysis. Google Analytics uses technologies that make the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing the user behaviour patterns. The app uses information recorded by Google, which is, as a rule, transferred to a Google server in the United States, where it is stored.
The use of these services occurs on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG. You may revoke your consent at any time.
Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.
For more information about the handling of user data by Google Analytics, please consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
Contract data processing
We have executed a contract data processing agreement with Google and are implementing the stringent provisions of the German data protection agencies to the fullest when using Google Analytics.
2. How can you revoke consent and/or request deletion of your data?
To revoke consent and/or request deletion of your data, kindly provide written notice to the processing controller mentioned below. The notice should clearly identify the user accounts whose information should be revoked or deleted, and include a declaration that you have the right to make this decision. For example, a simple email sent from the Apple ID associated with the account in question would suffice.
We kindly remind you that if you delete your data, only the existing data will be deleted. If you submit any new data through the methods mentioned above, we will again start collecting that information.
Furthermore, if you revoke consent for us to process your data, we will be unable to provide any further Service to the associated user account, as we need to process your data to fulfill the core functionalities of the app.

3. What legal basis do we rely on?
The operators the app take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.
Whenever you use our app, a variety of personal information, declared above, will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

General information on the legal basis for the data processing in the app
Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries
Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
- In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
- If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
- If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.
