Our aim is to provide you with a clear privacy policy that you can understand. Your privacy is important to us. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

Here's the plain language version of what's below:

We collect NO personal information. We don't even know if you own or use our apps. We only know how many people use an app, on which devices, and which screens they visit. You can opt-out of this anonymous usage info if you want on the Information screen of the app.

User Provided Information

This app does not require you to provide any information. No logins. No accounts. No subscriptions. This app contains a "Tip Jar" feature which enables you to leave a tip to support development of this app. This feature uses the iOS App Store In-App Purchase mechanism. All purchase information is held by Apple. Please see Apple's Privacy Policy for more information on how they use your information.

Automatically-Collected Information

Our apps may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile operating system and version, and information about the way you use each app (for example the screens you visit and buttons you touch). Your usage data is aggregated and anonymized, which means we have no way through the information we collect to know which individual is using our apps or what they are doing with them. We only know that someone is using our apps and they are using it in a certain way.

This service is provided by a company called Flurry Analytics. As an extra step to protect your privacy, we use Flurry's restricted feature set, which further limits the information we receive.

How do you use the information you've collected?

We use this information to help us improve the apps. By having an understanding of how our apps are being used and on which types of devices, we can make usability and feature improvements to help our users, and spend our time where it can help you the most.

Information collected by Flurry Analytics is not sold or disclosed to any third parties.

Do the apps collect precise real-time location information of the device?

Metro Times uses GPS information for the purpose of finding the nearest Metro stations, and showing your current location on a map. This information does not leave your device. Imprecise city-level location information (for example "Silver Spring, MD" or "Arlington, VA") is collected by Flurry Analytics.

What are my opt-out rights?

You can stop Metro Times from using location information by going to the iOS Settings App, scrolling down to "Metro Times," tapping on "Location," and changing "Allow Location Access" to "Never."

You can stop all collection of information by Metro Times easily by going to the Information screen (touch the "i" button in the upper right corner of the Favorites screen), scrolling to the bottom, and turning the "Share Anonymous Telemetry" switch to "Off". You can also uninstall the application. You may use the standard uninstall processes available as part of your mobile device.

To comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), you can view and delete all data collected by Flurry Analytics via a dashboard. You can view this dashboard by going to the Information screen, then tapping "Telemetry Dashboard."

Finally, you can also request to opt-out of Flurry Analytics altogether by visiting this link:
