Incognia takes user privacy very seriously.

Regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), require that application developers receive explicit consent from users before collecting location data. The Incognia SDK provides a mechanism for delaying data collection until the user has given consent. Customers must disclose the use of Incognia within their privacy policy.

How does Incognia deal with privacy?

Incognia develops all products by following the privacy by design framework, meaning we build privacy into our solutions at all levels, from idea conception to product launch.

Our technology was developed in a way that prevents access to information capable of re-identifying users. Incognia does not collect unique static device identifiers (such as IMEI and MAC), associated accounts (e-mail and telephone), civil identification data (name and social security number), or sensitive data – information that reveals ethnicity, religion, political opinion, religious, philosophical, political or union entities membership, and data regarding health, sex life, genetics, and biometrics.

Our solution requires the collection of data from mobile devices through an SDK. Every application must include Incognia's Privacy Policy as part of their own Terms and Conditions of Use and Privacy Policy and inform the user that their data will be collected by Incognia. Once authorized, the Incognia SDK starts to collect data without personally identifying any users.

Users can deny data collection by not giving consent or opting-out, which disables data collection for them. The application must allow users to opt-out of Incognia data collection at any time.
