Privacy Policy

Last updated: 4/21/2024

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of Flashcards Deluxe.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

User Flashcard Data (including pictures and sounds)

Flashcards within the app are never exported outside the app without the user manually initiating an export or sync process.

Flashcards stored on our servers are not used by us in any way other than to provide them for download by users. We do not export or share these flashcards to any other entity. Security procedures are in place to protect the confidentiality of your data.

Flashcards Deluxe has two server areas to store user flashcards:
1) App Server - Flashcards are stored here when a user either a) uploads through our website or b) exports to "App Server" from within the app. Data here is not associated with any account. Instead, the user identifies flashcards with a "deck code" (similar to a password). A user can only download flashcards from this area using a valid "deck code". Users should use a deck code that others will not guess or coincidentally use.
2) Shared Library - Flashcards exported to "Shared Library" are stored under the user's Shared Library account. In this case, when exporting the user can make the flashcards publicly viewable, or private.

Users can delete their flashcard data from our servers. For flashcards on "App Server", you can delete the deck by going to the following webpage: Delete Your Deck. Decks exported to Shared Library can be deleted from within the app by going to + (add deck), Shared Library, signing in, tap a group under "My Groups", tap deck, Remove from Library (if user owns deck).


We do not use recordings made by the user in any way other than to play back on the user's device when viewing flashcards. Recordings are stored on the device as mp3 files and can be exported by the user.

Email Addresses and Passwords

Flashcards Deluxe is generally login free, but exporting to Shared Library, or downloading private decks from Shared Library requires the user to create an account for the Shared Library. An email address is optional, and is only used if the user requests a password reset. We never give out account email addresses or use in any other manner. Passwords from the Shared Library are only stored in hashed format, encrypted and unable to reverse to the original password.

An email address from Dropbox or Google Drive may be collected, but is only stored on the device and never sent to our server, and is only used to show the user which account they logged in with. We do not have access to passwords used to log in to Dropbox or Google Drive.

Google Drive

You can use Google Drive to transfer flashcard data between the app and your Drive cloud storage. When using Google Drive, the app will create a "Flashcards Deluxe" subfolder in your root Drive folder. You can then import flashcards (text + media) that you put in this folder into the app, and can export flashcards from the app to Drive. All transfers are done within this "Flashcards Deluxe" folder. The app technically has access to all your Google Drive files for the login account, even those outside of the Flashcards Deluxe folder, but the app will never scan or read anything outside of the Flashcards Deluxe folder. During login, the app will store your email address on your device, but this is never sent over the internet and is only used to show you which account you are currently logged into. Other than your email address, the data we collect is only the spreadsheet/text info and media files you create and import into the app. Flashcard data imported into the app is stored unencrypted within the app's standard Android data folder.
