In general, we only collect information that allows us to provide you with our best Services. This includes, for example, simple tasks like allowing other users to see the name and picture you choose to show. It also helps us to keep our Services clear of fraud and Spam, and it allows us to get a unique understanding of what additional services may be useful to you, and all other purposes set out in this policy below.
Starting with UrslamChat, all of UrslamChat's core features are secured with end-to-end encryption: UrslamChat calls, one-on-one messages, group messages, media sharing and secondary devices. This means that the encryption keys are stored only on the clients' devices and no one, not even UrslamChat itself, has access to them.
Before you start sharing good vibes, it's important you understand that by using our Services, you give us consent to collect, use, disclose, and retain your personal information and other information but we will never read or listen to the content you are sharing privately. You can be sure that we will only use your information as described in this Policy.
First of all, we want you to be assured that we do not read or listen to the content of your messages and/or calls made privately via UrslamChat and we do not store those messages once they have been delivered to their destination (which by average takes less than one second). If for some reason, the message, wasn't delivered to its destination within up to 2 weeks, it will be deleted from our servers.
Note that chats with Public Accounts are not end-to-end encrypted, but we do encrypt such messages when sent to the UrslamChat servers and when sent from the UrslamChat servers to the third party (the Public Account owner and/or additional third party tool (e.g. CRM solution) integrated by such owner).
We collect the minimum information required to achieve the purposes set out in this Policy (see below), and you have the ability to limit such collection, as specified below under "Your Choices":
(a) Registration and Account Information:
When you use our various Services you voluntarily give us personal information (e.g., name, email, birth date, phone number and, when necessary, billing information) and you are not anonymous to us. That means your name and photo (if you choose to provide them) will be visible to other UrslamChat users. When you install the UrslamChat App, you'll also be asked to allow us access to your mobile device's address book. A copy of the phone numbers and names of all your contacts (whether they're UrslamChat members or not) will be collected and stored on our servers in order for us to be able to enable you and your contacts to connect. When you join UrslamChat, the contacts in your address book that are already UrslamChat members may be informed that you're now on UrslamChat too.
(b) Activity Information:
While using the UrslamChat services, we will collect, and other users can see, your connection status, whether you have received and seen messages sent to you, if you are currently on another call, and information related to the calls you have made and received; if you don't want people to know that you're online or that you've seen messages, you can change these options in your settings. As for delivered status and call information (length of the call, missed calls etc.), we believe they are important for UrslamChat users and therefore cannot be canceled. For Secret Chats, we will notify the other members of any screenshots you've been taking (so please respect the vibe and don't take them). We will receive other information (e.g. the content you have viewed and interacted with) from your use of our Services. When you interact with Public Accounts on our Service, we may obtain information about the messages you have liked, comments you have left and also websites you've viewed through links from a Public Account. In addition, we collect information about the accounts you have visited and the content you have viewed in order to improve the relevance of our Services. We collect information about the value added services you are using over UrslamChat and/or apps you have downloaded through UrslamChat. This includes whether you are presently online, your personal preferences and the way you use that service. We may also tell other UrslamChat users that you are using a certain service or app (to recommend them to try that service as well).
(c) Information from Other Sources:
The information we collect may be combined with information from outside records (e.g. demographic information and additional contact information) that we have received in accordance with the law.
UrslamChat ID Registration:
A UrslamChat ID allows you to connect to your UrslamChat account from only your mobile phone, using your ID and password only. If you want us to create a UrslamChat ID for you, we will use information you provided in the registration process (e.g., name, email, password, phone number), as well as your IP address to do so.
(a) Make our service available:
We use your Registration and Account information to (i) register you for the App and create your User Account for UrslamChat; (ii) create your profile and make it visible; (iii) process your payments; (iv) create your UrslamChat ID; (v) provide customer service, give you information about your account, and respond to your requests; (vi) personalize your experience by providing content on the Service, including targeted advertising of UrslamChat services and other 3rd party services that we believe may be of most interest to you;(vii) indicate which of your contacts is already a UrslamChat member and notify you when your contacts become active on the Service (viii) display the name of the contact as it appears in your address book when a call is received on the Service.
(b) Improve our Services:
We use call log information and usage information (as described above) to better understand network behavior and trends (numbers of messages and calls made by users, typical destinations, call lengths, network type, etc.), detect potential outages and technical issues (this helps us notice things like a drop in call volume in a certain geography, a shift in call length, a change in typical networks, etc.) to improve our Services. We may look into a specific call log in response to a customer support request. We maintain call log information for only as long as is needed for business and/or legal purposes. We use aggregate information about our users and non-personal information to analyze our Services and user behavior and prepare aggregated reports.
(c) Provide Interesting Offerings to You:
As part of value added services provided by us or by a third party within UrslamChat, we may use your information to continuously optimize and personalize those services and send you personal messages about new offerings which we believe you will find relevant (as long as you agreed on UrslamChat or elsewhere to receive information from that service).
Sending a message to a Public Account, subscribing to a Public Account or following a Public Chat on UrslamChat will allow admins of that Public Account to send you notifications and personal messages. If you do not wish to receive such notifications, you may adjust your account settings to decline them or opt-out at any time from receiving further notifications. We may also use WPS location data to provide location-based offerings to you from our Service or third-party advertising. You will be asked to allow the use of your location data before UrslamChat provides such offerings, and you may also adjust your account preferences to disable the use of your location data at any time.
(d) Process Your Payments:
We may use your Information to process your payments for our Services through a third-party service provider and, on an aggregate basis to determine charges for our carriers and other service providers.
(e) Prevent Fraud & Spam; enforcement of law:
(f) Communicate With You:
We may use your information to contact you (via message or other means) to maintain the App, including your UrslamChat Out User Account, to comply with your stated communication preferences or to provide updates about other UrslamChat services.
Unless otherwise specified, we retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for us to achieve the purposes referred to above or to enable us to comply with our legal data protection retention obligations. You consent to our retention of your video viewing tracking data for as long as permissible under applicable law - up to one year after you close your account or otherwise withdraw consent for video tracking.
We want you to know that we do not sell your personal information. We only share your personal information with third-parties outside of UrslamChat, for the purposes listed above, in the following circumstances:
(a) The UrslamChat Corporate Family:
We may share the information we collect about you with the UrslamChat corporate family.The information may be disclosed to: (i) provide joint content and our services (e.g., registration, coordination of membership accounts between the UrslamChat corporate family, transactions, analytics and customer support); (ii) help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts, violations of our policies, fraud and/or data security breaches.
(b) App Providers and Other Third-Parties:
We may disclose your information to service providers and other third-parties under contract who help with providing you our Services or other services provided by third-parties via our Services (such as, but not limited to, fraud and spam investigations, payment processing, site analytics and operations, providing special partnership features in our service, advertising - either on an aggregate non identifiable basis, or using unique identifier which can't trace back to you). They are required to secure the data they receive, so that your personal information is guarded.
(c) Other Entities with Your Consent:
(d) Legal and Law Enforcement:
We may disclose your information to law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to terror acts, criminal investigations or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other UrslamChat user to legal liability.
(e) Change of Control - New Owners:
We may share your information with another business entity, if we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business, or are involved in a transaction with similar financial effect. In such a situation we would make reasonable efforts to request that the new combined entity or other structure follow this Policy with respect to your personal information. If your personal information was intended to be used differently, we would ask the new entity to provide you with prior notice.
We want you to have control over how you communicate. That's why, for example, we allow you to delete messages even after they have been sent (it will be deleted for you, your friend and our service). How cool is that? You can also control your privacy settings within the App to change the visibility of your online status or prevent other users from knowing which UrslamChat apps and games you are using. You can disable the "seen" notification so that other users don't know whether you've read a message yet. You can choose not to share your photo, opt not to receive location-based messages along with many other additional options, which are available within the app. Every now and then, UrslamChat may send you notifications about administration and operation of the Service (for example, about your transactions, policy changes, technical issues, etc.). We may also send notifications about offerings by UrslamChat or third-parties, that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive such notifications, you may adjust your system settings to decline them (if you're using iOS systems) or opt-out at any time from receiving further notifications by not using our service.
Here are a few additional important things you should know about our use of tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, HTML-5 stored technologies):
