Is data collected and stored even if no subscription is purchased?

I want to make a simple and reassuring statement about data/privacy in my app’s help screen and I’m wondering if data storage is the same regardless of whether a subscription is purchased or not. Is RevenueCat still collecting and storing data for a user who has not purchased a subscription?

Thanks.

Hey @philc!

The App User ID, last activity date, and other metadata like operating system are saved even if a subscription isn’t purchased. This is needed to make cross device and cross-platform subscriptions work - RevenueCat needs to check the App User ID server-side to see if they’ve purchased from another device.

Thanks Ryan, that’s helpful.
