GlyphOK Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Last updated: 16 Feb. 2017

GlyphOK ("us", "we", or "our") is a free Andriod application (“app”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the app.

We use your Personal Information only for providing app functionality. By using the app, you agree to the use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection And Use

While using our app, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you or others. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to phone numbers ("Personal Information").

Here is the tldr version:

The application requires the following permissions:

To get a get recipient name for sending glyphs

read contact data

To transmit a glyph to that recipient

send SMS

To detect incoming glyphs and notify you

receive SMS

To read a glyphic message from the SMS inbox

read SMS

To download new language files

access Internet

None of your personal information is saved in any sort of persistent data store. Your information is used to facilitate communication and then forgotten.

The only information that is saved is the app’s user settings (text size, ring tone, etc) and the most recently downloaded language file. None of the saved information can actually be used to identify an individual, unless your ring tone shouts something personal, like your bank account number. Personally, we recommend not doing that.

Log Data

GlyphOK does not have a ‘log’.  It does access existing information in the SMS inbox in order to allow you to read incoming messages, but that information exists before GlyphOK is ever installed.


We do not use your Personal Information to connect you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials or other information that is not related to the exchange of SMS messages between two individuals.

GlyphOK does not create spam, although we have no control over messages sent by individual users. However since the app only enables awkward one-to-one communication, it seems like an unlikely channel for advertising in any case.


GlyphOK does not use cookies.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

GlyphOK does not ‘encrypt’ the messages it sends. Actually it uses a hyper-linguistic cypher which is currently readable by anyone who downloads the app and speaks either English or Spanish. Encryption is an eventual goal, but we have to get the universal translator part working first.
