By accessing or using our website and/or application, you accept and agree to be bound by and abide by these terms and conditions, so please make sure to review them carefully.

This document governs your use of the software application Device Monitor ("Application") for mobile devices that was created by XLAB d.o.o. Device Monitor is part of the network security solution used to analyze network data traffic in order to detect malicious networks (botnets) and malicious software on mobile devices. Device Monitor interacts with service GCMServer ("Service"), also created by XLAB d.o.o.

If you wish to stop the collection of Data specified in this Privacy Policy, you can do so by uninstalling the Application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace.

By using the Application users monitor their device for malicious activities that may be running in the background of the device and user is not aware of them. Application monitors connections to external resources, and in case of detected connection to known malicious end-points notifies the user and issues report to the Service. The information gathered is anonymized to a high degree and no other personal data is exposed. See Data Collected section for more details. Device Monitor also inspects installed applications for known exploits and in case of detection of such it reports these to the Service.
