Privacy Policy

Last updated and effective as of 9th December 2022.

As a responsible organisation, we have taken three important steps. First, we have made sure that we have, at the discretion of our users, the information necessary to allow us to improve the Muse Hub application, and that by doing so we are compliant with national and international regulations, namely GDPR and CCPA. Second, we have been, and will continue to be, transparent with our users and our developer community about the data we collect, when we collect it and why. We will also publish any intended changes before they are implemented in all newer versions of the Muse Hub application. Muse Hub is a free application to download and use. Third and most important: Muse Hub has privacy as a feature - it means that we do not store any of your personal data at all.
