Terms of Service and privacy policy

TERMS OF SERVICE & CONDITIONS

By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app. You’re not allowed to copy, or modify the app, any part of the app, or our trademarks in any way. You’re not allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the app, and you also shouldn’t try to translate the app into other languages (out of the process defined by the developer), or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trade marks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to Anthony STEPHAN.

Anthony STEPHAN is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

The Printoid for OctoPrint app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, in order to provide my Service. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the Printoid for OctoPrint app won’t work properly or at all.

You should be aware that there are certain things that Anthony STEPHAN will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Anthony STEPHAN cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.

If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.

Along the same lines, Anthony STEPHAN cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app i.e. You need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the Service, Anthony STEPHAN cannot accept responsibility.

With respect to Anthony STEPHAN’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. Anthony STEPHAN accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the app.

At some point, we may wish to update the app. The app is currently available on Android – the requirements for system (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the app to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. Anthony STEPHAN does not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the Android version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, upon any termination, (a) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (b) you must stop using the app, and (if needed) delete it from your device.

You shall not download or install Printoid for OctoPrint from a distribution channel other than Google Play. Anthony STEPHAN declines all responsibility in case of you install the application from a non-trusted source and some issues occur on your device because of that.

Printoid for OctoPrint is provided for a personal use only. The professional use of the application is totally prohibited without the consent of the Developer, Anthony STEPHAN.

OctoPrint and the associated plugins are not the property of Anthony STEPHAN.

APPLICATION PERMISSIONS

Printoid for OctoPrint requests some permissions when you install it on your device. Some of you are a bit scared about them, and I totally understand that you are wary with that.

To resolve any ambiguity, here are the details of all the permissions requested by Printoid for OctoPrint.

  • The permissions marked with a ♣ are the permissions that can be declined directly when the access is prompted by Printoid for OctoPrint. You are totally free to decline the permission, but please note that you will be therefore unable to use the associated feature.
  • The permissions marked with a ♦ are the permissions that cannot be declined, but Printoid allows you to turn off the behavior from its settings.

As you can see, the list of mandatory permissions is finally limited. Printoid for OctoPrint needs principally to be authorized to access a network connection.

📂 Photos/Media/Files

  • Read the contents of your USB storage (♣) : needed to read the content of the file when you want to upload it from your storage to your OctoPrint server. This permission can be declined, but you will be unable to upload any file in that case.
  • Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage (♣) : needed to write the content of the file when you want to download it from your OctoPrint server to your storage. This permission can be declined, but you will be unable to download any file in that case.

💾 Storage

  • Read the contents of your USB storage (♣) : needed to upload a file from your storage to your OctoPrint server. This permission can be declined, but you will be unable to upload any file in that case.
  • Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage (♣) : needed to download files from your OctoPrint server to your storage. This permission can be declined, but you will be unable to download any file in that case.

🎥 Camera

  • Take pictures and videos (♣) : this permission is only requested when you want to flash the OctoPrint’s API key QR code instead of typing it manually. This permission can be declined but you will be unable to flash the QR code in that case.

📡 Wi-Fi connection information

  • View Wi-Fi connections: needed for the smart connection process to know if Printoid should use the LAN parameters or the WAN parameters according the current WiFi network SSID. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.

🗺️ Location

  • Access coarse location (♣): this permission is not mandatory. This is useful only for Android 8.1 and + to improve the connection process (in order to get the WiFi SSID value to remember which network is your local network). Android 8.1 has restricted the access to this value to application with at least the coarse location permission. Versions below can run without this permission. If you decline this permission, Printoid will still work well, but the connection process would be less efficient. Printoid does not use your location at all if you accept this permission.

ℹ Other

  • Full network access: needed to acceed your OctoPrint server and to perform all the associated actions. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.
  • Receive data from Internet: needed to receive the informations from your OctoPrint server. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.
  • View network connections: needed for the smart connection process to know if Printoid should use the LAN parameters or the WAN parameters according the current network type. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.
  • Prevent device from sleeping: needed to keep the screen awake while Printoid is running. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.
  • Google Play license check: needed to check if you have properly purchased Printoid PRO or Printoid PREMIUM on Google Play. This permission is mandatory and cannot be declined.
  • Draw over other apps (♣) : needed for the floating icon and to show your video streaming over all the other applications. This permission can be declined, but you will be unable to use the floating icon in that case.
  • Control vibration (♦) : needed for the haptic feedbacks on the interface. This permission is mandatory, but you can disable the vibrations in the Printoid’s settings.
