Privacy Policy

Last Updated: Jun 19th, 2024


This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and protect your personal information when you use our voice-to-text application ("Superwhisper") that transcribes all audio data locally on your device. By using Superwhisper, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. We are committed to protecting your privacy and fulfilling our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other applicable privacy regulations.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies only to Superwhisper. It does not cover any third-party applications, websites, or services that may be linked to, integrated with, or otherwise accessed through Superwhisper. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party services before providing your personal information to them.

Information We Collect

As Superwhisper is designed to process audio data locally on your device, we do not collect any audio recordings, transcriptions, or personally identifiable information (PII) when you use Superwhisper. This is in line with our commitment to data minimization as required by GDPR and other data protection regulations.

Information collected during sign up and purchase of Superwhisper is stored by our 3rd Party payment processors and email service providers to provide you with the service and validate your purchase. We retain the right to use this information to contact you about the service and provide you with updates about the app.

Usage Data

We do not collect any usage data when you use Superwhisper. We respect your right to privacy and do not track or log your usage of Superwhisper in any way.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Superwhisper does not use cookies or similar tracking technologies. We comply with the ePrivacy Directive and other similar legal requirements that mandate transparency about the use of cookies and other tracking technologies.

Data Security

We take the security of your personal information very seriously. Since Superwhisper processes all audio data locally, there is no need for data transmission. This significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access or disclosure of your information. However, no method of data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be completely secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information you provide through Superwhisper as the files do get saved to your device.

Your Rights

Under the GDPR and the CCPA, you have certain rights relating to your personal data. As we do not collect any personal data through Superwhisper, most of these rights will not apply. However, if we ever begin to process personal data, you have the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data, the right to access the data we hold about you, and the right to have your data deleted or restricted under certain circumstances.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting the revised policy on Superwhisper. Your continued use of Superwhisper after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted constitutes your acceptance of the updated policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or seek your consent, as required by law.

Contact Information

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, or if you want to exercise your rights under the GDPR, CCPA, or other data protection laws, you may contact us at [email protected].

Regulatory Authority

If you feel that your rights have been violated and we have not adequately addressed your concerns, you can lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In the European Union, this would be the data protection authority in the country where you reside.
