Specifically, this policy exists to inform you about the types of information we may receive, how we use that information, the measures we take to safeguard the information we receive, the choices you may make and certain legal rights that you have.

Where we refer to “personal data” in this privacy policy we mean any data that may identify you as an individual.


Protecting your personal data and maintaining your trust is core to our mission at Pic2Key.

We will not sell your personal data to third parties.

We receive different types of information from our Products, including anonymous device, network, performance and usage statistics. We use this data to debug and improve the functionality of our Products.

When you are using our Products our prediction technology learns from the way you use language. Upon first installation we need to establish a base for your personalized language model. To achieve this, Pic2Key Keyboard for Android accesses your SMS messages.


The Pic2Key personalization service, which is a feature of Pic2Key Cloud, accesses your recent content from online services that you specify, such as Gmail, Facebook and Twitter. It uses this content to build a personalized language model on our servers, which is then transferred to your device. This is an optimized view of the words and phrases that you use most often, and reflects your unique writing style.

Your use of our personalization service means we may store and use data provided by you to develop and improve our Products. You have the right to have this data destroyed, as outlined below.
