- All photos taken with Close-up are stored solely on the user's device by default. They are not transmitted to any third party service when taken.
- Photos deleted within Close-up are cached for a week in the client so that they can be restored. This feature is present to help avoid user data loss.
- With Dropbox sync enabled, photos taken in Close-up are synchronized with a user's private Dropbox account. The photos are not copied or stored anywhere else when Dropbox sync is enabled.
- The only piece of face data that Close-up collects outside of the photos taken themselves is a single, optional set of three guide lines for display when taking future photos that mark where the user's eyes, nose, and mouth are. These lines come from a one-time scan using
CIFaceDetector when users opt into the face grid setting, and this data is never transmitted anywhere outside of the user's device.
- All photos taken in Close-up remain only in Close-up by default. If a user opts in to Dropbox Sync their photos are also securely synched with their personal Dropbox account.
Close-up uses Flurry to log events within the following categories.
- Image captures.
- Video and GIF creation and playback.
- Image, video, and GIF sharing.
- In app purchases.
- Dropbox sync setup success and synching errors.
- Setting up and snoozing of daily reminders.
- HEIC photo conversion success.
- If the user is prompted to perform a common action, such as make a video or sync with Dropbox.
Close-up also uses Google Analytics to log instances of photos being captured. This logging is done with a custom library that ensures minimal data collection.
This data is used by the developer of Close-up alone in order to make decisions about future enhancements to the product and to determine the effectiveness of particular features.
