Privacy policy

At Crick Software, we are committed to protecting and preserving the privacy of our website visitors and product users. This policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide us with or that we collect from you when you use the DocsPlus App for Chromebook.

User settings

We use cookies, local storage and your Google™ account to store user’s settings.

Students and personally identifiable information

The only student information that we store is the student’s email address and basic profile info. This is required to confirm that they are a licensed user.

Required permissions

Applications that integrate with Chrome or a Google account must declare their intent by requesting permissions. These permissions to your browser and account must be granted in order to integrate with Chrome and Google accounts. Below is a list of these permissions and why they are required. At no time will Crick Software request or have access to your Google account password.

  • Gmail
    - Send email on your behalf (allows the app to send an email when the option is selected by the user)
  • Google Drive
    - View and manage the file in your Google Drive (allows the user to manage their Google Drive files from within the app)
    - Add itself to Google Drive (allows the app to connect to Google Drive)
  • Basic account info
    - View your email address (used to identify the user for licensing the app)
    - View your basic profile info (user’s name)
  • Device Camera (allows the app to use the camera when the option is selected by the user)

You can revoke these permissions at any time on your Google Account Permissions page, however if you do this, the Chrome app will cease to work.

Data privacy

Crick Software employees will only access content on our servers to manage licensing for the Chrome apps. The customer information visible to Crick Software employees is:

  • School/organisation details
  • Users’ email addresses and basic profile info
  • Date when users started using the service
  • Date when users last used the app
  • Log of licensing requests (includes timestamp and a device identifier)

This information is used and displayed in http://apps.cricksoft.com to make it simpler for a school to manage their subscriptions and decide which users to add or remove.

We will delete your email address and basic profile info after 2 years of not using our service.

Disclosing your information

We will not disclose your personal information to any other party other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless we are legally required to do so by law.

Scanning content

We do not scan any content. Our systems are not designed to associate personal information with your activities.

Third party data sharing

We do not share any of your personal data (such as name, address, email) with other companies.

Data collection - advertisements

We do not display advertising, therefore no data is collected through our software for advertisement targeting. We do not operate any referral program and do not display any sponsored links.

Personal information protection

We take reasonable steps to secure your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access or disclosure. We encrypt the transmission of data on pages where you are required to provide payment information. However, it’s important to note that no security or encryption method can be guaranteed to protect information from hackers or human error.

Information we collect may be stored or processed on computers located in any country where we do business.

Our software uses tracking software to allow us to better understand how our software is used. This is provided by Google Analytics, which uses cookies to track visitor usage. The software will save a cookie to your computer’s hard drive in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the website, but will not store, save, or collect personal information.
