High (?). Hokusai Audio Editor, as stated by Wooji Juice, tries to gather as little private information as possible about its customers. It clarifies that if someone installs and uses an app, most likely no user information is being provided. Wooji Juice’s privacy policy explicitly mentions not collecting user data or storing information on the cloud in a way that is accessible. Wooji Juice does not use analytics software to track users as they browse the internet, which enhances transparency. The policy respects user consent, especially when it comes to sending technical information or logs. Users have control over what information they send, and nothing is gathered automatically without their explicit action. Wooji Juice does not mention compliance with the GDPR, and the last policy update is from 2018. See more here.
