When you test beta apps with TestFlight, Apple will collect and send crash logs, your personal information such as name and email address, usage information, and any feedback you submit to Silvertrac.  Information that is emailed to Silvertrac directly is not shared with Apple.  Silvertrac is permitted to use this information only to improve the Silvertrac App and is not permitted to share it with a third party.  Apple may use this information to improve our products and services.

Apple retains TestFlight data for one year.  To view and manage your data with Apple, including your data that is sent to Apple through TestFlight, visit Data and Privacy

Information Shared by Using TestFlight

The following data is collected by Apple and shared with Silvertrac when you use TestFlight.  If you accepted an invitation through a public link only, your email address and name are not visible to Silvertrac.

Data Shared when Sending Feedback 

When you send feedback from the TestFlight app or send crashes or screenshots from the beta app, the following additional information is shared.  If your device is running iOS 12.4 or earlier, this information is only shared with Silvertrac. If your device is running iOS 13 beta or later, this information is collected by Apple and shared with Silvertrac.  This data is retained by Apple for one year.
