I understand your privacy concerns. I didn't like it when my audio book reader wanted access to my contacts. As such, I put a lot of effort into avoiding unnecessary permissions in order to respect your privacy. Additionally, we don't sell or give away any location data from your device.
That said, we still need access to a couple of permissions but we only ask for access to these permissions when we require them in the app.
Feel free to contact me if you have concerns.
