Untethered Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.


  • Within the Untethered application:

    • Using your microphone, we record audio data and send it encrypted via HTTPS directly to Google's servers for speech recognition. We do not collect this audio data ourselves.

    • Google uses that audio data according to its own privacy guidelines.

    • We do not collect the recorded audio data, but in some cases, we store it locally on your own device for playback in future episodes.

    • We do collect anonymized text results from speech recognition for the purpose of enhancing the play experience, including but not limited to using common responses to improve recognition accuracy and to modify the application to react more intelligently to common responses in future play sessions.

    • We collect anonymized user data of play sessions, such as the time it takes to complete certain tasks or trigger certain events, for the purpose of modifying the application to improve future play sessions.

  • If you signed up for bonus content and updates on this website, we do collect your email address specifically for that purpose. We do not share your email address with anyone else.


  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.

  • We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.

  • We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

  • We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

  • We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.


We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
