1. Information Collection and Use

We do not require to create an account to use our Services. We may use your encrypted phone number as a way to privately collect meta information required by our Rich Communication Services, such as the time and date of when your messages are received and read, or when someone is writing to you. We do not store the content of your communications on our servers.

Links
We may keep track of some of the links you click on in our Software in order to improve the relevance of the links we provide or to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on. This information is part of the Usage Information we collect anonymously. When transferred to our cloud computing infrastructure, this information is stripped out of the properties that would allow us to associate it with your identity. This information may be stored locally on your device in association with other personal information.

Messaging Services
Our Software requires certain permissions on your smartphone:
• READ AND WRITE SMS: permission required to read, write and send SMS/MMS/RCS messages

• AUDIO RECORD: required to send audio messages via MMS
• READ PHONE STATE: cellular information allowing a faster and more responsive user experience
• READ CONTACTS: allows you to select the contacts you want to send SMS/MMS messages to
We are not storing any of your personal data, images, photos, audios or videos in any of our servers, and we don’t sell your data to anyone. Whatever data is collected is for the sole purpose of providing our Services to you.

Messaging History
Our Software will have access to your messaging history where it may collect relevant data for machine learning. This information is part of the Usage Information that we collect anonymously to improve our Services. When transferred to our cloud computing infrastructure, this information is stripped out of the properties that would allow us to associate it with your identity and pooled with similar Usage Information. Your personal information is private and local to your device and will not be transmitted to our servers nor to any third-party entity.

Identifiers and cookies
We may perform requests to content providers on your behalf to retrieve relevant information to show you. When retrieving such information, we ensure that the requests are sent from a new connection session so that no cookie or other tracker can build your user profile from past requests.

Log Data
Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) generated upon your connection to the Services. Our Log Data is anonymous, therefore it will NOT include information such as your IP address, user ID, phone number, cookie information, browser type, operating system or device model, location, carrier or internet service provider information.

Third-Party Service Providers
We use a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting services, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information about your device, and are not communicated to us on an individual basis but only on an aggregated basis. The Company is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

2. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Law and Harm
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we may preserve or disclose the information we collected, including Log Data and Usage Information, if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to address security or technical issues; or to protect Biggerpan’s rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third-party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose the information we have, which is non-personal and anonymized

Business Transfers
In the event that Biggerpan is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your personal information may not be sold or transferred as part of that transaction, while the Log Data and Usage Information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make a change to this Policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you via an email to the email address associated with your account or through the Services.
