Welcome to the new SoundByte Privacy Dashboard. With this dashboard you will be able to see what information is collected from the SoundByte app and Website, how this information is used, how view this information and how to delete it.
SoundByte collects both anonymous usage information and crash reports. Usage analytics can be disabled in SoundByte v19.1 or later by visiting the settings page, crash analytics cannot be disabled.
Telemetry is a vital tool to ensure that SoundByte is stable as possible, while also providing the correct features in the best place. By using the anonymous data received from these analytic services we are able to diagnose problems before they affect more people. Telemetry also helps us understand what features are being used in the app, and in what order. This allows us to optimize SoundByte to our target audience.
Crash Analytics: When SoundByte crashes, information about this crash is sent to Visual Studio App Center on app startup. This is dependent on your operating system privacy settings.
Usage Analytics: SoundByte also collects anonymous usage information about multiple aspects of the app. This includes current playing songs (service provider type, nothing is collected about the actual song), if your logged in or not, which pages are navigated to etc.
These analytics are sent to Google Analytics and Visual Studio App Center
SoundByte also collects some anonymous information on startup such as App Version, Platform, Device Type (Desktop, Xbox, Mobile), and OS Version. This information is used to help provide the app with the required keys it needs to function correctly. This information cannot be used to track you and is not shared with any 3rd party services.
Websites analytics are managed via Azure Application Insights.
Application Insights is used to monitor server and API performance. API request such as getting your SoundByte likes and logging in are logged (only the url, not your music or any personal information). This is to ensure the API is working as correctly and that everyone can access their music.
