Controlled Panic LLC Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of any software application (“App”) on a computer or mobile device that was created by Controlled Panic LLC.

What information is collected?

User Provided Information

The App may include the ability to share Information via social networking services (eg. Twitter, Facebook). If you choose to use this functionality, the App obtains your username and password in order to authenticate with the Twitter servers. We do not directly save this to the device, though we may save the authentication key locally to your device, as a convenience to you for future usage. This will only ever be used when you explicitly choose to share something from within the App.

Automatically Collected Information

For advertising purposes, the App may collect certain information automatically, such as: the type of mobile device you use, your mobile devices unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, and information about the way you use the App. See “Automatic Data Collection and Advertising” section for examples.

How is this information used?

When initiated by you:

When you choose to share something via social networking services (eg. Twitter, Facebook), this information may be publicly posted on their servers. This is only done within the App when you explicitly initiate it, and the App will never intentionally share anything via these services without your knowledge.

As required by law:

such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.

For providing relevant advertising:

We share some information with our advertising providers in order to be able to provide a free, ad-supported version of the App. This includes information about your mobile device: its type, unique device ID, operating system, and IP address; along with information about the way you use the App. This information will stop being shared if you are using the paid version of the App, or any In-App Purchase to remove advertising.

Change of ownership:

If Controlled Panic LLC is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.

Automatic Data Collection and Advertising

We may work with analytics companies to help us understand how the App is being used, such as the frequency and duration of usage. We work with advertisers and third party advertising networks who need to know how you interact with advertising provided in the App. Advertisers and advertising networks use some of the information collected by the App, including the unique identification ID of your mobile device and your mobile telephone number. These third parties may also obtain anonymous information about other applications you’ve downloaded to your mobile device, the mobile websites you visit, your non-precise location information (e.g., your zip code), and other non-precise location information in order to help analyze and serve anonymous targeted advertising on the App and elsewhere.

What are my opt-out rights?

There are multiple opt-out options for users of this App:

Opt-out of all information collection by uninstalling the App – You can stop all collection of information by the App easily by uninstalling the App. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

Opt-out of all targeted advertising with our advertising provider by registering your device ID at http://mobclixdev.com/optout/.

Opt-out of all information shared with advertisers by either using the Paid version of the app, or the ‘Remove Advertising’ In-App Purchase.

Data Retention Policy

We do not retain any User Provided Data outside of your device. Usage of the App will save data to your mobile device, which will persist for as long as you have the app installed. Automatically Collected Data may be stored in aggregate by our advertising providers, and its use is subject to their terms.


We do not use the App to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13.


We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our App. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.


We may update this privacy policy from time to time for any reason. The current Privacy Policy will always be available here at http://controlledpanic.com/privacy. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
