We can also refer to previous messages you have sent us, in order to better understand your inquiry and previous troubleshooting steps we may have tried.

We also can perform statistical analysis on inquiries in the aggregate, for example to understand which type of issues occur more frequently. We can also perform artificial intelligence analysis of historical inquiries, in order to develop automated support systems.

In the event that you create an account, we'll use your contact information for the purpose of securing and managing your account. For example, we can contact you to help with resetting your password or verifying changes to your account. In addition, we can contact you for service-related changes that impact the Product.

1.2 Usage Information

Usage Information is anonymous information in the aggregate, such as how many people are using the Product per day, in what countries and languages the Product is being used, whether any errors occur, and what features are most popular.

We use this information to prioritize which features to add to the Product, which languages to translate the Product into, identify bugs to fix, customizing the user experience, and other ways to improve the Product. We also use this information to improve compatibility, fix bugs, update plug-ins, and improve features. This information is also used to deliver configuration updates to tune the app's functionality. We receive this type of information from third party service providers, like Google. This Usage Information is used for the purpose of improving the Product.

We do not associate Usage Information with Contact Information, unless you sign in. If you are signed into the Product, we may contact you if we notice crashes or errors occurring for the purpose of proactively helping resolve the error.
