“We do not and will not sell ANY data we collect or share it with 3rd parties. Full stop,” Audacity’s developers wrote.
The statement and FAQ further expounded on Audacity’s data collection practices, which is said to collect a “very limited” amount of data. That is said to include: a user’s IP address, which will be “pseudonymised” and “irretrievable” after 24 hours; basic system information such as OS version and CPU type, and error report data, sent manually by users.
“We will not collect or provide any information other than data described above with any government entity or law enforcement agency,” it continued. “Data is not shared upon an agency request; we will do so only if compelled by a court of law in a jurisdiction that we serve.”
