This document is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it.
As you already know, our application helps you to find music withing Jamendo collection and, in addition you are able to preview those music, and to download it onto your device, if required, to listen oflline later. So, from the very application purpose we can derive few absolutely required permissions:android.permission.INTERNET - required to make requests to remote servers, including Jamendo hosts.
It is not a secret, that our application is free, the only way to monetize it, is embedded advertisement. So next permissions are for advertisers:android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION & android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - in order to provide you with the best user experience and to show you the most relevant advertising, we need to have your location data. Actually, application itself do not interested in your location and do not request it. It is only needed for advertisers, to make a decision about what banner to show you.
Two more permissions:android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO - we use it to provide you with voice search along with the regular search field. android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS - we decided to add this permission after reading a post on a stackoverflow, about fixing security exceptions on mediaplayer setDataSource(). Wery rarely, on ocasional android devices, application crashed during music preview. Adding this permission elliminated bug completely. We do not use it for other purposes.
