    We never upload or store camera or microphone data to our servers. We do not collect location data.

    The camera permission is brought up at the beginning of the game to allow the reflection of the user in the BuddyFish eyes, which is necessary to enable the BuddyFish to see the users emotional state and react to their smile when up close.

    The location permission is necessary to enable iBeacon. Apple's iBeacons enable a TouchFish player to locally encounter other players with TouchFish on their iPad or iPhone, similar to two dog-walkers having their pets encounter each other on the street.

    If there are any questions or concerns around privacy please post them in the general forum.
