Description (last modified by mario)

Background

With #4672 we introduce opt-in "error reporting" to Adblock Browser for iOS, which will be released on the 28th of February 2017. This new feature requires us to update the privacy policy

What to change

In https://adblockplus.org/en/privacy#abb_ios change the following text

Adblock Browser for iOS

Crash reporter

In the event of an unexpected crash, Adblock Browser for iOS collects data relevant for analyzing the cause of the error and transmits it to eyeo's ​HockeyApp account. The data is solely used for individual troubleshooting (as well as for identifying general defects which lead to unexpected crashes) and is never shared with any third parties other than HockeyApp.

During a crash the following data is sent:

	• Bundle identifier, bundle version and short bundle version string of Adblock Browser for iOS.
	• Device type, CPU architecture and version of the operating system.
	• Timestamp of when the crash happened.
	• A generated UUID to prevent duplicate crash reports.
	• If an exception was thrown, the plain-text class name and message value of the exception.
	• Low level crash data like instruction pointer, method or function names, signal data, pointer registers and information about the loaded binary images.

Said data is only collected when the application crashes. Furthermore, Adblock Browser for iOS explicitly asks for permission to send the collected information after the crash happened. All crash reports stored on our servers are removed after 30 days.

In order to learn more about HockeyApps’s privacy policy, please consult their ​Terms of Service as well as their ​documentation of collected data.
