1. CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
We collect data you give us voluntarily (for example, when you sign up/register or send us an email). We also may receive data about you from third parties (for example, when you sign in via Google). Finally, we collect data automatically (for example, your IP address, device name, and android version).

1.2. Data provided to us by third parties
1.2.1. Gmail authorization
When you log in with your Gmail account through our Services, you are granting TeacherPH permission to securely access the information contained in or associated with that account. The whole process is similar to connecting any other email client. In order for our Services to achieve this, we need to store user email account access tokens: For services that support it (i.e. Gmail), DepEd EPT Reviewer, Principals’ Test Online Review, Principals’ Test Reviewer, NQESH Reviewer, TeacherPH Online Review uses Google Firebase Authentication (OAuth 2.0), which is an open standard authorization protocol that allows us to access your email address, profile image, and name without needing to know your password. This helps keep your information as secure as possible. We never know or store your passwords on our servers. With OAuth 2.0 authentication, our Services use application-specific tokens that you can revoke at any moment in your Gmail settings. If you revoke our access to your email account, our Services do not have access to any of your data anymore.
READ: Firebase Authentication
DepEd EPT Reviewer, Principals’ Test Online Review, Principals’ Test Reviewer, NQESH Reviewer, TeacherPH Online Review also uses Google Cross-Account Protection (CAP) protocol.
