Spelfie Mobile Phone Application

The Spelfie mobile phone application uses local storage on your device for the following:

  • your email address, profileID and access tokens
  • PIN codes for private events
  • your device’s notification registration ID
  • your pending selfie images with their location, time captured and event IDs
  • device-specific preferences

These are required for the operation of the mobile phone application and, in the case of access tokens, to recognise when you return to the mobile phone application.

In addition, the app stores anonymised data for the purposes of analytics. This can be disabled in the app settings.
