Privacy Policy

Haste is a search utility for macOS, developed and administered by Plastic Software Inc. ("we", "us", "our"). We wrote this Privacy Policy to explain in detail our respect of your privacy by describing what kind of data we do (or do not) collect, why we do so, and how we treat it, as clearly as possible.

To put it plainly,

We neither collect your private data nor any data that can identify who you are via Haste or its Safari Extension. We do not collect any information about your browsing or search histories. We collect only some demographic/anonymous data via the app so that we can improve the app and serve you better, as detailed below;

Data we collect: 1. Demographic information about the usage of Haste

We use a service called Answers under fabric platform provided by Google Inc. (Formerly by Twitter Inc.), to collect and analyze some demographic information about the usage of Haste, such as the type of device the app is installed on, or whether or not a particular feature of the app is frequently used, etc. We refer to this information only as a guide to improve Haste. We will not sell or disclose that information to any third parties.
The privacy policy of Answers can be found here (PDF).

Data we collect: 2. Crash logs

Similarly, we use a service called Crashlytics under fabric platform provided by Google Inc. (Formerly by Twitter Inc.), to collect crash logs that are sent from Haste when the app has crashed for any unexpected reasons. We will look at those crash logs to get more insight about why it occurred or how we could fix the problem. The crash log is anonymous and does not contain any information that can identify who you are. We use the information only as a guide to resolve the problems. We will not sell or disclose that information to any third parties.
