Tumult Whisk Privacy Policy

We care about preserving your privacy. Our general philosophy is to collect as minimal amount of information as possible to reduce risk. Collecting personal and usage data is intended to provide better service to you as well as statistics we can use to improve our products.

Our goal is for you to trust our business and to create a great app to express your creativity. We have no desire in making money off of your personal information nor do we want to put any of your private information at risk.


  • Before collecting personal information, we will identify the purpose for which it is intended.
  • We will not sell or distribute your personal information to a third party unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law. We do use third party services for limited purposes which have their own policies; please see below.
  • We will protect personal information by commercially reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
  • When we change our privacy policy in a meaningful way, we will post notice on our website along with the updated policy.

Content Authored in Tumult Whisk Application

  • We do not put any analytics into exported/previewed HTML. We do not know what you create.
  • Because content made with Tumult Whisk can contain arbitrary HTML/PHP, documents may call out to other servers. It is your responsibility to know what your documents are doing, including documents that you did not create but may have downloaded online.
  • Some features we create may require network access to download resources. These will always be opt-in.

Tumult Whisk Application Communication to Tumult

  • If you choose, "Collect anonymous usage data to improve Whisk," a limited amount of information such as your hardware configuration will be sent to Tumult. We use our own servers and app to aggregate this data; it is not sent to a third party. You are welcome to request samples of what is currently sent (though as it is anonymous we cannot know what you personally sent).
  • Checking for updates will cause our servers to be queried with the minimal amount of information to know which update to vend such as the Tumult Whisk and OS version.
  • Whisk has various feedback mechanisms allowing you to report a bug, crash, or make general comments. These require initiation on your part

Mailing Lists

  • We will not send you mass or promotional emailings unless you have asked us or joined our mailing list.
  • You can unsubscribe at any time through buttons located at the bottom of the emails from lists that you have joined. Unsubscribes take effect immediately.
