Via Our Application

If you use our application, it will regularly check for updates by contacting our server. Your app will provide its anonymous UUID (it can be found in the About-dialog), your operating system (as reported by NodeJS's `process.platform`-variable), and whether or not you have told the app to receive beta release notifications. This information is used to determine some generic user base indicators that we use to streamline the development.
