The mums FM iOS App does not collect any user data when installed or launched on your device
Apps for Android also do not collect any personal data, however may monitor other Apps on a user’s device in order to control the audio. E.g. When a Radio.co Android App is launched on a device, it will continually monitor the ‘state’ of the Phone App (Idle, Incoming Call, In call, Call ended). This is so the audio can pause if the user receives or makes a phone call. The App does NOT record audio or collect phone numbers.
The App will also require access to the users local storage. This is in order to store your App’s configuration (colours and images) on the device.
