Information you provide may be used to enhance the user experience and to help us identify potential new product and service needs.
Third party data - For each of the services you authorize AppWise to access, we create an index of data from that service. This allows us to provide search functionality for your data. Data collected may include documents, contacts, calendar items, social network data, or any data that you have authorized AppWise to access.
