Smart Cloud Storage


This privacy policy governs your use of the software Smart Cloud Storage for mobile devices that was created by Marco Studer.

Smart Cloud Storage (SCS) automates storage management on your smartphone. If you run out of storage, it automatically outsources files to make room for new ones. When you need outsourced files back, SCS re-downloads them immediately.

SCS moves your data to and from the cloud (Google Drive), thus effectively increasing the total storage space of your phone.

What Information Does Smart Cloud Storage Obtain and How Is It Used?

User Provided Information

Smart Cloud Storage obtains and stores the account name/email address of the Google Drive account that is used to log into Google Drive.

There is no registration required and no further information is requested by Smart Cloud Storage.

The email address is stored on the phone and will not be sent to me. I will and cannot use your email address to contact you (unless you send a bug report with attached email address (optional) for further correspondence).

Automatically Collected Information

In addition, Smart Cloud Storage may collect certain information automatically, including and limited to file access events (filename and timestamp), number and size of uploads and downloads done via Smart Cloud Storage, as well as available and used storage space (locally and on Google Drive). Every installation is identified by a random UUID and cannot be linked to an entity.

Does Smart Cloud Storage Collect Real Time Location Information of the Device?

No, Smart Cloud Storage does not collect any information of the kind.

Do Third Parties See and/or Have Access to Information Obtained by Smart Cloud Storage?

No third party has access to the data. The data is only used to improve the algorithms used by Smart Cloud Storage in the future and to obtain more insight in how users use the application.

I May Disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;

  • when I believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect my rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;

  • with my trusted services providers who work on my behalf, do not have an independent use of the information I disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.

What Are My Opt-out Rights?

You can stop all collection of information by Smart Cloud Storage easily by either disallowing the upload of statistics in the app settings or by uninstalling Smart Cloud Storage. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

Data Retention Policy, Managing Your Information

I will retain User Provided data for as long as you use Smart Cloud Storage and for a reasonable time thereafter. I will retain Automatically Collected information for up to 48 months and thereafter may store it in aggregate. If you would like me to delete User Provided Data that you have provided via Smart Cloud Storage, please contact me via a Bug Report and I will respond in a reasonable time. Please note that some or all of the User Provided Data may be required in order for the Smart Cloud Storage to function properly.


I do not use Smart Cloud Storage to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided me with information without their consent, he or she should contact me at I will delete such information from my files within a reasonable time.


I am concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. I limit access to this information to a handful of developers who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve Smart Cloud Storage. Please be aware that, although I endeavor to provide reasonable security for information I process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.


This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. I will notify you of any changes to my Privacy Policy by posting an update information on the Google Play Store. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.
