Why does Samsung access my contacts and storage if I use their store?

If I want to access the Galaxy Store on a Samsung Galaxy phone I have to agree to a set of terms (Legal information). These terms are excerpted below:

All content made available to you by the Samsung Galaxy Store is subject to the terms and conditions set forth below…

In order to provide you with and further improve relevant services, the Samsung Galaxy Store accesses Phone, Contacts, and Storage. It also collections your device information (e.g. IMEI and model name) and service usage history…

I understand why it would collect “device information”, as any software downloaded and installed on your device would operate best if the software is tailored for a specific device/OS version etc. I assume these are the same reasons why a web page is given the operating system and browser you are using to access that page.

However can anyone give a good reason why Samsung would access my contacts? I’m not exactly comfortable with this, especially as I don’t see any reason for it for the purposes of making an ordinary app work. Also, when it says that it accesses my storage, does that mean that Samsung has access to my media stored on my phone? By that I mean documents, videos, photos etc?

Also I’m not sure if this question should be asked at another SE site maybe instead of here?

How to model multiple types of contacts?

I’m not sure if this can be called a polymorphic association – what is needed is to for each Message to have a Sender Contact and a Recipient Contact. Both Sender Contact and Recipient Contact could be one of 2+ types. Currently SMS and Email are supported but more may come.

I have this urge to eliminate a possible duplication that would appear in case of having two different tables – sender_contacts and recipient_contacts. Also type column is a kinda of a DB-modeling smell. But I’m not a DB modelling expert and rather looking for an advise from an experts how to properly model those relationships.

Any input is appreciated.


Send an email to multiple contacts, asking to confirm information that we have on SharePoint list

I am trying to send an automated custom email (via Flow or directly via SharePoint; no SharePoint Designer, PowerApps, or anything of the like). We can only use SharePoint Online. These emails would be sent to a contact based on the list.

The list columns look something like this:

Contact List

Operator First Name | Operator Last Name | Email | Entity Name | FEIN | Date

I would like for the email to pull each contact and its respected entity names, FEIN, and date (the red in the photo below).

The end goal is to have the operator confirm that this is the most recent info. If it is wrong, they would have the option of editing that list item. NOTE: since this email would be sent out to hundreds of people, it is vital that they do not have access to view other people’s information.

This email would be sent on the same day every year (let’s say January 15th). There would be a follow up email on February 1st.

If the email could look something like the below photo, that would be fantastic. Nothing fancy necessary at the moment. I just do not want to call/send emails to 500+ contacts.

Also, my department is very limited on what we can or cannot do in SharePoint (no PowerApps, no Microsoft Forms, no SharePoint Designer, limited use for Microsoft Access).

Thank you in advance!!

Ricochet IM on Ubuntu 19.04 doesn’t save added contacts

I installed Ricochet IM an encrypted chat app on Ubuntu 19.04 using the GNOME Software – application manager. When I run Ricochet it doesn’t seem to save anything. When I restart the program, it asks me again about the Tor relay configuration and all the contacts I added are gone.

I have Ricochet already installed on my Ubuntu Studio 18.04.3 LTS and adding contacts works fine. The only differences I noticed between these two installs is that in the new non-flavored Ubuntu 19.04, the “ricochet” file in “usr/bin” directory is bigger and there is no “/cache” directory in ”/etc/apparmor.d/”. It contains one of Ricochet files on my 18.04.3 Ubuntu Studio.

FormKey validation in Custom Form for Contacts

I have a custom form setup for my contacts module. I would like to implement a form key to prevent spam. Usually, the spammer directly uses the form post without having a session before. So form key seems to be a solution. But. I am having some problems implementing this.

This is my custom form in index.phtml where I have already added the hidden input “FormKey” before closing the form-tag:

            <form action="<?php echo $  this->getFormAction(); ?>" id="contactForm" method="post">             <div class="fieldset">                 <h2 class="legend"><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Contact Information') ?></h2>                 <ul class="form-list">                     <li class="fields">                         <div class="field">                             <label for="name" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Name') ?></label>                             <div class="input-box">                                 <input name="name" id="name" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Name')) ?>" value="<?php echo $  this->escapeHtml($  this->helper('contacts')->getUserName()) ?>" class="input-text required-entry" type="text" />                             </div>                         </div>                         <div class="field">                             <label for="email" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Email') ?></label>                             <div class="input-box">                                 <input name="email" id="email" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Email')) ?>" value="<?php echo $  this->escapeHtml($  this->helper('contacts')->getUserEmail()) ?>" class="input-text required-entry validate-email" type="text" />                             </div>                         </div>                     </li>                     <li>                         <label for="telephone"><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Telephone') ?></label>                         <div class="input-box">                             <input name="telephone" id="telephone" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Telephone')) ?>" value="" class="input-text" type="text" />                          </div>                     </li>                     <li class="wide">                         <label for="comment" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Comment') ?></label>                          <div class="input-box">                             <textarea name="comment" id="comment" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Comment')) ?>" class="required-entry input-text" cols="5" rows="3"></textarea>                         </div>                     </li>                 </ul>             </div>             <?php echo $  this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('dsgvo')->toHtml(); ?>              <div>                 <input type="text" name="hideit" id="hideit" value="" style="display:none !important;" />                 <button type="submit" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Submit')) ?>" class="button"><span><span><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Submit') ?></span></span></button>             </div>             <input name="form_key" type="hidden" value="<?php echo Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->getFormKey() ?>" />         </form>

Generating a CSV file from all contacts in Outlook Directory

As part of a University, I have been assigned a University email. When I access my email through Outlook, and I go on the “People” section, I am able to access a section with all of the contacts in the University.

However, I am able to export as a CSV file only the contacts that I directly add to my contacts list.

The question is: how can I export all of the contacts in the directory without directly adding them to my contacts?
