Rhymeo is an app to create freestyle raps. While enabling users to create this content, we use the following:
What we collect and why we collect it:
To confirm that new users are not creating several accounts from the same IP address.
To better understand the user’s context for app enhancements and bug reporting, as well as to gather data that can be used for Quality Assurance.
To be able to present the user with text within the app in a language that the user understands.
To ensure that all the APIs used by the app are working well in order to provide the best possible user-experience.
To understand the impact of our app on the user’s battery.
To better understand the quality of the signal on the user’s device and thereby help our partners improve network coverage, as well as reactively providing a better service for users based on signal quality.
Overall, we will be logging the data mentioned above in order to better serve our users and prevent users from abusing our Services or other users. This data will be sent to Rhymeo via the third party analytics services Firebase, Datamuse, Rhymebrain, Flickr, Google Speech-to-Text SDK, and Apple Siri SDK. Some of the information mentioned above may also be shared with our partners.
Because the photos are not hosted on Rhymeo and are instead shown to the end user directly from Flickr using their sharing API, please contact Flickr directly for any concerns that you might have about how Flickr makes your photos available through their API. If you have any questions or concerns about your photo being shown on the Rhymeo application, please follow this link for opt-out instructions to the Flickr API: https://www.flickr.com/help/website/#180.
Once you opt out on Flickr your photos will no longer be displayed through the Rhymeo application. Please wait up to 24 hours for this change to take place. Rhymeo respects your privacy and only shows public Flickr photos compliant with the Creative Commons Licenses and Flickr’s privacy options.
Rhymeo is not certified or endorsed by Flickr or Yahoo.
