Visiting this Website:
When you visit the Squealock website, we may send one or more cookies to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We may also be able to view your browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your request.
Because Squealock is designed to retain very little information, we are only able to turn over very limited data, if law enforcement is able to make the case about a person of interest, with a court order or valid legal document. Under those circumstances we may give access to data such as:
- Squealock user IDs (SLID)
- Users' encrypted passwords
- Encrypted Messages that can only be decrypted by the recipient.
Data We do not collect

Squealock Systems, Inc. does not collect names, addresses or other contact information from its users' mobile address book or contact lists.

Although Squealock is end-to-end encrypted, using unsecured Wi-Fi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Squealock Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Squealock Systems, Inc. makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
