We collect the following types of information.

Information you provide us directly:


• Your username, password and e-mail address when you register for an Friendplus account.

• Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., first and last name, picture, phone number). This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on Friendplus.

• User Content (e.g., photos, comments, and other materials) that you post to the Service.

• Communications between you and Friendplus. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

• If you choose, you can use our "Find friends" feature to locate other people with Friendplus accounts either through (i) your contacts list, (ii) third-party social media sites or (iii) through a search of names and usernames on Friendplus.

• If you choose to find your friends through (i) your device's contacts list, then Friendplus will access your contacts list to determine whether or not someone associated with your contact is using Friendplus.

• If you choose to find your friends through a (ii) third-party social media site, then you will be prompted to set up a link to the third-party service and you understand that any information that such service may provide to us will be governed by this Privacy Policy.

• If you choose to find your friends (iii) through a search of names or usernames on Friendplus then simply type a name to search and we will perform a search on our Service.

• Note about "Invite Friends" feature: If you choose to invite someone to the Service through our "Invite friends" feature, you may select a person directly from the contacts list on your device and send a text or email from your personal account. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to communications sent from your device, and because this invitation is coming directly from your personal account, Friendplus does not have access to or control this communication.

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.

Cookies and similar technologies:


• When you visit the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Friendplus and provide features to you.

• We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

• Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device.

• When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.


Metadata:


• Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted.

• Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive.
