When you use these services, you share information with us. We want to be transparent about the data we collect, the way we use it, the people we share it with, and the choices we offer when it comes to controlling, accessing and updating your data.
We collect three main categories of information :
Here is a little more explanation on each of these categories.
When you use our services, we collect the data you choose to share with us. For example, to access our services, you must create a Faroty account. We need to collect some important information about you, such as: a unique username you want to use, a password, a phone number and your date of birth. In order for other people to easily find you, we may also ask you to provide us with additional information that will be visible to everyone on our services, such as profile pictures, a name or any other identifying information. Other services, such as commercial, may also require you to provide us with a mobile payment account number and associated account information.
Of course, you also provide us with all the data you send to your friends via our services, such as Farotis and Chats. Remember that the users you participate in Chats or any other content can save this content or copy it outside the application. On the Internet, you need to use common sense, and this also applies to Faroty: do not send messages or share content that you would not want someone else to save or share.
This may seem obvious but be aware that when you contact customer service or contact us in any other way, we collect the information you want to communicate to us.
When you use our services, we collect data about the type of service you used and how you use them. For example, we may know that you have watched a particular faroti or that you have sent some messages to your friends. Here is a more complete explanation of the types of data we collect when you use our services:
We may collect information that other users provide to you when they use our services. For example, if another user authorizes us to collect information from their directory, and you are included in their contacts, we may associate the information collected in that user's directory with other information that we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from our affiliates or other third-party sources and link them to the information we collect through our services.
How do we use the data we collect? The short answer is: to provide you with high quality products and services that we are constantly improving. Here are some of the ways we do it:
We can also store information locally on your device. For example, we can store information as a local cache so that you can open the application and see the content more quickly.
We may share information about you in the following ways:
The services may also contain links and search results to third-party sites, including third-party integrations, or offer third-party brand services or offered in partnership with another brand. Through these links, third-party integrations or services of a third-party brand or offered in partnership with another brand, you may directly transmit to Faroty and/or to the third party concerned information (including personal data). You acknowledge and agree not to engage our responsibility as to the methods that third parties will use to collect or exploit your information. As usual, we encourage you to read the privacy policies of any third-party services you visit or use, including those with which you interact via our services.
Our services are not developed for children under 16 years old. For this reason, we do not voluntarily collect personal data from children under 16 years of age.
