- Contributors of Received Information
Information from user or user devices
When users register, download, install, access, activate or otherwise use the Service or interact with us on our website, Received Information may be received, processed and retained from user and devices the user may use in interactions with the Service.
Received Information may include any of the following: geo-location, IP address, device ID or unique identifier, device manufacturer and type, device and hardware settings, ID for advertising, ad data, operating system, operator, IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity), certain information regarding contacts contained in user device phone books (“Contacts”), phone number, connection information, screen resolution, usage statistics, device log and event information, incoming and outgoing calls and messages, times and date of calls, duration of calls, behavioral information, version of the Software used, and other information based on interactions with the Services.
In addition, if a user provides user identifier information for third party social media services, such as Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and Foursquare, so that the Services can interoperate with the social media services, the user’s identifier associated with the social media service (including mapped photos where applicable) will be stored and processed.
Please note that we never store any passwords to any social media service.
Data/names may also be associated with a phone number through our name/data tagging functionality, which allows a user who receives a call from a phone number which is not associated with data or a name in our resources to indicate the data/name to be associated with that number. This data/name will only be associated with a number through the name/data tagging functionality if a sufficient number of independent users, based on our algorithms, have indicated similar data/name for the relevant number.
When a user reports a phone number as being “spam”, we store that phone number in combination with the user’s internal ID in order to maintain the user’s spam list online and also for the purpose of building a community-based spam-blocking directory.
Received Information may be linked and combined with data from other sources.
Information from Public Resources and other users of the Service.
We receive data from Public Resources (as defined under the Terms of Service) associated with users and user Contacts, including from social networks to which users or user Contacts are registered, such as Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, Twitter, and Foursquare.
