UPDATE: Internet access has been removed starting with the 0.4.0 version.
OLD COMMENT:

We are not collecting any personal information. All the sensitive data (including your biometric templates) are encrypted and stored in the phone. They are never ever sent outside the device.

Internet access permission is used to gather anonymous statistics data, to be able to show ads and pick usage errors (the app is still a beta and it is stated in the EULA terms).

BUT we have heard you loud and clear. In the next version, the application won't require Internet Access permission anymore. We're going to remove the ads as well.
