Privacy Policy

 

Personal and Sensitive Information

The myMirka application does not collect or store personal or sensitive information locally. Such information is stored in a remote secure server.

Runtime Application Permissions

In order to manage Mirka BLE tools, myMirka uses Bluetooth related permissions and Internet access. No other permissions are required.

 

Android

For scanning nearby BLE devices, the ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION permission is needed for devices running up to Android 11. On Android 12, this permission is not requested nor required. The GPS location of the device is not collected or used.

For managing the availability of Bluetooth on the phone (BLUETOOTH, BLUETOOTH_ADMIN), and connect to the tool (BLUETOOTH_CONNECT) are required.

For retrieving the user’s registered tools and for up-to-date tool information - e.g., tool images, latest firmware -  INTERNET permission is required. All communication between the application and the backend occurs over cryptographically secure connections (HTTPS) and are authenticated.

iOS

For scanning and connecting with Mirka tools, the application uses the “Uses Bluetooth LE accessories”.

For retrieving the user’s registered tools and for up-to-date tool information - e.g., tool images, latest firmware -  “Background fetch” is required. All communication between the application and the backend occurs over cryptographically secure connections (HTTPS) and are authenticated.

For marketing purposes, “Remote notifications” are used.

Data Usage and Statistics

For debugging purposes, Firebase Crashlytics is used to identify crashes. Firebase Real-time Database is used to monitor the reliability of the tools’ vibration exposure sampling rate when connected to a tool. Google’s Firebase Analytics will be used to monitor the application distribution (which version is currently in use) and installation demographics. On iOS, App Analytics will be used for the same purpose.
