1. Information We collect
a) Information We collect
Your username, password, an email address we can contact you at, a phone number. We do not require that you provide us with your user profile (e.g., Real name, picture).
Your activity and the messages you send and receive through our Services. For example, we collect information such as the time, date, sender, recipient of a message, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a message or capture a screenshot).
b) Information you automatically provide us when you use our services
We collect information about your activity and the messages you send and receive through our Services. For example, we collect information such as the time, date, sender, recipient of a message, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a message or capture a screenshot). We may collect that same basic information when you use message cash, along with the dollar amounts sent and received.
We collect information about your device, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers (including MAC address and IMEI), browser type and language, mobile device phone number, and mobile network information. We also collect certain device information that will help us diagnose problems in the (hopefully rare) event you experience any crash or other problem while using our Services. So, for example, if we detect a crash or other problematic event, we may collect the list of apps on your device and other information about your device's performance at the time of the event for troubleshooting purposes.
Camera and Photos.
Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device's camera and photos. We'll access your camera and photos only after you give us your consent.
When you use our services, we may collect information about your location. With your consent, we may also collect information about your precise location using methods that include GPS, wireless networks, cell towers, Wi-Fi access points, and other sensors, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, and compasses.
Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies.
c) Analytics information.
We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.
2. Information We Collect from Other Sources
If another user allows us to collect information from his or her device phonebook and you're one of that user's contacts we may combine the information we collect from that user's phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with the information we collect through GroupIN Solutions India Pvt. Ltd.
3. How We Store Your Information
a) Your account information.
Your account information (e.g., email address, password, and phone number) will be encrypted as soon as you register for the Service, and we store and process such encrypted information on servers in India in which we maintain facilities. We will use commercially reasonable safeguards and take reasonable steps to keep the information encrypted at all times, so that the information will not be decrypted and accessible.
b) You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy
You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password, OTPs and account information, and for controlling access to the service at all times as we are not able to decrypt and access your encrypted account information.
4. How We Use Information
We provide you with an amazing set of Services that we improve with the information we collect. But we do a lot more as well, such as:
- Provide and deliver the products, services, and functionality that you request, process transactions, and send you related information;
- Communicate with you. That means just what it says; we may send you marketing communications on behalf of us or other companies; respond to your comments and questions; provide customer service; and send you technical notices, security alerts, and other informational messages;
- Monitor and analyse trends and usage;
- Develop, improve, and refine products, services, and functionality;
- Personalize the Services by providing advertisements, content, or features that match user profiles or interests. For instance, when you set up an account, we may pre-populate certain account information based on the information we collect about you from other users;
- Verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity; and
- Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.
6. Message Deletion
Delete is our default. That means that most messages sent through our Services will be automatically deleted once they have been viewed or have expired And even after we've deleted message data from our servers, that same data may remain in backup for a limited period of time. But -and this is important- you should understand that users who see your messages can always save them, either by taking a screenshot or by using some other image-capture technology (whether that be software or even something as old-fashioned as a camera to take a photo of your device's screen). If we're able to detect that a recipient took a screenshot of a message you sent, we'll try to notify you. But the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to GroupIN as well: Don't send messages that you wouldn't want someone to save or share.
In most cases, once we detect that all recipients have viewed a message, we automatically delete it from our servers. In most cases, the Services are programmed to delete the message from the recipients' device as well. There is, however, an exception to this general rule:
Infinity timer: Senders can choose an infinity timer option to prevent deleting their messages from recipient's device.
A few final words on deletion: We can't guarantee that messages will be deleted within a specific timeframe. You may choose to store it in the cloud storage associated with your subscription plan. And even after we've deleted message data from our servers, that same data may remain in backup for a limited period of time. We also sometimes receive requests from law enforcement requiring us by law to suspend our ordinary server-deletion practices for specific information. Finally, of course, as with any digital information, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients' devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted.
7. Children's Privacy
GroupIN respect the privacy of children under the terms of COPPA. We do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Service. The Service and its content are not directed at children under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
