🕵️‍♂️ Your privacy

How we protect you

To make the most out of our personal relationship management tool, you'll have to sync very private data with Nat.

Data like our email interactions, contacts or even our calendars is not something we share easily.

We hope that this page will give you a better understanding of how we use this data.

 

How and why we access your emails

Emails is where everything happens.

Gmail is aware of this and has made accessing such data extremely complicated for startups. As of January 2020, it will have been 6 months since we started to process to get approved by Gmail's Trust & Safety team. Our friend Ajay from Gmass has written a lot about it.

Because we're not yet approved, you'll receive a very scary warning when you try to sync your inbox. We're sorry about this. You can still continue by clicking Advanced >> Continue.

When you do, you'll see that we request read-only access to your inbox. This is due to the fact that Gmail's API is built in a way that without access to this scope, we can't use Gmail search, which powers most of our features. We want to reasure you that we never import or read any email content. The content of your emails is in Gmail and stays there.

Our Codebase

We've open sourced the part of our code that connects to the Gmail API. This is part of our work to increase transparency. Check it out to see exactly what data we access and how.

 

How we use your data

Gmail

Our algorithm looks at the people you send emails to, how often, who sends you emails and so on. This data get's analysed to find out who are your close contacts, who you're losing touch and to build timelines for your contacts.

Contacts

Our algorithm accesses your contacts to prevent duplicates & find out who are your real contacts and who are simply newsletters or so. 

Calendar

Our algorithm scans your calendar to find out with whom you met and when. Besides adding this data to the timelines, it improves our algorithm and predicts your closeness with your contacts more accurately.
