Puma Technologies, Inc. dba Puma Browser (“Puma Browser,” “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) value the privacy of individuals who use our browser, websites, and related services (collectively, our “Services”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, use, and share information from users of our Services (“Users”) or their devices. Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of our Services is also subject to our Terms of Use. 


We collect information from or about you or your devices, as described below. In this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. 

  • Email List Information. If you sign up to receive information about our Services, we ask you for your email address. We use MailChimp to email with you, and when we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to learn how to deliver a better customer experience and improve our Services.
  • Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact us with career inquiries or to receive customer support, we will receive your email address, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

To help us understand how our Services are being used and to help improve them, we may collect the following information, which is associated with unique IDs, which are randomly generated per installation, and not associated with any User’s device.

  • Crash Report Information. If our mobile app crashes while you are using it, if you allow us, we use Sentry to generate and send us a crash report to help us fix the issue. These crash reports contain information about the device and software you use to access our Services, including device manufacturer and brand, screen orientation and resolution, web browser type and operating system version, as well as usage information about the date and time that the crash occurred. 
  • Device Information. We receive information related to randomly-generated IDs, which are not associated with any User’s device, including how many unique Users have installed the Services, as well as general information about the country, device manufacturer and brand, language, operating system version, session identifier, and version of the Services that Users are using. 
  • Usage Information. To help us understand how our Services are being used and to help improve them, we receive information related to randomly-generated IDs, which are not associated with any User’s device, including if a new User installs our Services, takes a tour of the Services, signs up with Coil, enables micropayments, and interacts with our Services.




  • Micropayment Partners. If you sign up for an account with the Coil network to receive micropayments, such as for streaming ads or viewing content, we receive tokens from Coil to process those transactions. Even if you choose to view ads for micropayments, we do not receive your browsing history, such as the sites that you visit or how long you are on any site. This information is stored locally on your device and is not sent to us.
  • Other Third Parties. You may post comments, photos, videos, or reviews on our pages and events available through third-party platforms, such as Discord, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. If you do so, we and other users of these platforms may be able to view the information you make available through these third-party platforms. If you wish to limit the information available to us, you should visit the privacy settings of your third-party accounts to learn about your options.
