Our app “Lionheart Keeper”

Lionheart Keeper is about privacy.

  • There are no Ads in it.
  • It does provide convenient links to send us feedback email if you wish – at which point sections on email handling apply.
  • The only data we get about Lionheart Keeper is via Apple through the data they provide to all their developers about numbers of downloads and sales etc.
