Types of Information Collected
When you create an account, we may collect your personal information such as your account name, mobile phone number and a voluntarily-provided photo. You may be able to add one or more people’s account name to your account and if you do so, we will collect that person’s account name and phone number. When you allow us, we may obtain your contacts list contained in your phone or device.
We also collect your unique available geolocation information from your device as part of our Services. You will have the opportunity to alter the settings within the Services to control to whom and when your geolocation information is collected or made available.
When you voluntarily provide content to one more of your circles, we may collect such information.
Because families may want to include children under 17 in their circles, parents may add children to their circles. If they do, parents will be asked to confirm their permission with a consent form that must be returned via email before we will allow children under 17 to use the Services. If you have any questions or concerns about collection of information from children under 17 or believe we have done it without parental consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do certain activities on other social media sites, we may collect information from those sites such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The amount of data provided to us is dependent on your settings and the policies of those other sites.
When you use our Services, we may also collect information about your computer or device which may include IP address, browser information, referring/exit pages and URLs, click stream data and how you interact with links on the website, mobile app, or Service, domain names, landing pages, page views, cookie data that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, browsing behavior on our site, mobile device type, mobile device IDs or other persistent identifiers, and location data collected from your mobile device. This may be maintained as “Anonymous Data” that does not identify you or we may combine it with other available information that would allow us to identify you or your device. When using our Services with a mobile device, we may collect unique identification numbers associated with your device, your mobile service provider, device details such as type and OS.
We use technology to passively collect and store certain information about your use on the site such as what programs, applications, advertisements, services you used.
We may engage in remarketing to market our sites across the web. When a user visits our site, a cookie is dropped on the user. Users with this cookie may be targeted across advertising networks to receive relevant advertisements.
