When you create a ICHAT MESSAGING account in order to access the Services, ICHAT MESSAGING will ask you to provide your phone number. This information is necessary because we may send a text message via SMS to the phone number you provide, as part of our ongoing efforts to detect and deter unauthorized or fraudulent use of or abuse of Services. We may also use your registered phone number to provide you important information about Services.
When you use Services, we may obtain and maintain certain electronic identification or log data that is automatically provided by your device such as: device type, OS type, IP address, browser information including type and language settings, device identifier, cookie data, advertising identifier or mobile application identifier.
This information is necessary as part of our ongoing efforts to detect and deter unauthorized or fraudulent use of, or abuse of, Services, as well as to provide you with customized options, and optimize the Service for your device.
To use the ICHAT MESSAGING APP, you are not required to provide your location information. However, we provide features that utilize geolocation data for your convenience and to improve your user experience.
In other cases where we collect or use your geolocation data in the course of providing an Additional Service, we will provide you with prior notice and obtain your prior consent.
In addition to the information described above, you may choose to set your profile information (e.g., ICHAT MESSAGING ID, "display name," profile picture, and the phrase you choose to show under your status message) and show who you are to other ICHAT MESSAGING users within Services. Furthermore, you may choose to create "user-generated content" such as text and audio messages, photos, videos, geolocation data, or the contact information of your ICHAT MESSAGING friends, and share this user-generated content with other users. You may choose how much or little of your user-generated content to share, and with whom you share it, when you create messages by selecting the recipients of your user-generated content and/or through the privacy settings in the ICHAT MESSAGING APP.
Please note that the profile information and user-generated content you share with others can be copied, stored, or disseminated by the recipients and potentially accessed by unintended third party recipients due to the nature of digital data. We encourage you to be very attentive and cautious when you generate and share your personal information or content with others.
