Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 12, 2021

In this policy, we lay out what data we collect and why, how your data is handled, and your rights to your data.

This policy applies to all products built and maintained by Skyglass, LLC, including our website, www.skyglass.com, and our mobile apps, Skyglass and Laser Focus.

Identity and access

When you sign up for the Skyglass newsletter, we ask for your email address, so we can send you updates. Your email address will be stored with our email marketing partner, EmailOctopus. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send.

We also ask for your email address when you use the Skyglass app so we can send you links to upload digital assets or download media. We don’t store your email address in this case (unless you opt in to sign up for the Skyglass newsletter at the same time). Your email address is stored locally on your device to be used in future upload or download requests. If you have iCloud enabled, we will store your email address in iCloud so you can initiate upload or download requests from additional devices that you own without re-entering your email address. We don’t have access to information stored in iCloud.

When you use the Skyglass app for the first time, we generate a unique identifier for you. When you upload digital assets or generate media, we will associate it with your unique identifier so you can access the digital assets you have uploaded to generate imagery, and so you can access media you have generated to download it. If you have iCloud enabled, we will store your unique identifier in iCloud so you can access your digital assets and media from additional devices that you own. We do not associate your unique identifier with any personally identifiable information, unless you included such information in the digital assets that you uploaded. You can delete your unique identifier by deleting all digital assets and media from the Skyglass app.

Digital assets and media

You can upload digital assets representing custom virtual environments. You can generate imagery of these custom virtual environments or of virtual environments that we provide. We store your digital assets and generated media along with your unique identifier with our cloud storage and compute partner, Amazon Web Services. You can delete digital assets and media at any time from within the Skyglass app.

Camera metadata

When you use the Skyglass app, we stream camera metadata to servers hosted by Amazon Web Services so we can generate imagery from the perspective of the camera. If you use the Skyglass app without an external camera, this metadata includes the position and orientation of the mobile device with respect to your physical environment. If you use the Skyglass app with an external camera, this metadata includes the position and orientation of the camera with respect to your physical environment, as well as focus, iris, and zoom information received from the external camera via Bluetooth communication. This camera metadata is deleted after being used to generate imagery.

When you calibrate an external camera lens using Laser Focus, the name of the lens along with focus and zoom information is received from the external camera via Bluetooth communication and stored locally on your device. We don’t have access to this information.

Changes & questions

We may update this policy as needed to comply with relevant regulations and reflect any new practices.

Have any questions, comments, or concerns about this privacy policy, your data, or your rights with respect to your information? Please get in touch by emailing us at privacy@skyglass.com and we’ll be happy to answer them!
