Last updated: Jan 17, 2024

We at Haltia, Inc., (together with our affiliates, “Haltia”, “we”, “our” or “us”) respect your privacy and are strongly committed to keeping secure any information we obtain from you or about you. Privacy and protection of your data are the core principles of our company and it influences everything we do. This Privacy Policy describes our practices with respect to Personal Information we collect from or about you when you use our website, applications, and services (collectively, “Services”).

Our aim is to create a personal AI assistant that runs completely on your device without the need to transfer any of your information to any external services operated by us or someone else. Everything we do is done with your privacy as a first priority.

3. Third-Party Applications

We allow you to create connections or integrations between the Services and certain third-party applications you use. To connect third-party applications, it may be necessary to have an account with each such third-party application you integrate, and the Services may require you to authenticate with each application. Our Services do not store such login credentials and such credentials are never provided to or processed by us. When you integrate third-party applications, we will forward you to sign-in directly with the third-party application provider. We are not responsible for how any third-party application collects, processes, uses, retains, or discloses your information. The way a third-party application processes information is governed by the policies of the third-party application.

Third-party applications integrated with the Services may allow you to collect, process, transmit or disclose information, content, or posts that may include other parties’ personal information. You are responsible for ensuring that you have the right to collect, process, transmit or disclose other parties’ information and that you have obtained all legally required consents to collect, process, transmit, or disclose the information you process using the Services.
