Privacy Policy

Fish Swami values the privacy of the anglers that visit and use Fish Swami for storing their fishing logs.

App-specific privacy information

Personal Profile Information

The personal profile information you provide when you register is not sold or provided externally to companies or individuals. Some of the information is available internally to other Fish Swami users if you have added them as a fishing partner, or if they have added you as a fishing partner.

Fishing Partners

If you request someone to be your fishing partner, or accept someone's request to add you as a fishing partner, your name and e-mail address is visible to that user. Their name and e-mail address is visible to you.

Fishing Logs

When you save fishing logs at Fish Swami, you have the option to make the log public, protected, or private. If you mark the log as public, all data stored with that fishing log (including photos) is viewable by the public, including non-registered visitors of Fish Swami. If you mark the log as protected, the fishing log is not visible to the public. It is visible by any of your fishing partners, however. If you mark the log as private, you are the only user that can see any of the fishing log information.

Site-Generated E-mails

Fish Swami may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a fishing partner sends you a new message or enters in a fishing log, or someone posts a comment on your fishing log, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.

Fish Swami App

Location Data

The Fish Swami App collects location data in the background while you are fishing. This data is used to track where you fish and where you catch fish. The data is then presented to you in various maps inside the app and on the web site. This location data follows the same visibility rules as discussed in the fishing logs section. Summarily: if the fishing log is marked as public, the fishing log and associated location data is visible to the Internet. If it is marked as protected, any of your fishing friends can see the log, but the general Internet cannot. If it is marked as private, only you can see the fishing log and location data.
