We also use technologies to collect information we need to keep improving the site and the App, when you browse through the site, or the App. These include:
Chat messages between users are not stored by YouVoice/VoiceMe. As of now we understand that our third party service Quixxblos is storing data until both parties have deleted their accounts .. even after that. We should cover that as we cannot quickly change that technically. At the start of every call with another user or users,we log the fact that a call has occurred between you and that user or users. This record includes a timestamp, as well as an IP address, ID cookie, and similar information for both you and the other user or users you speak with.
We may assign your device one or more cookies, to help understand and personalize your experience. Cookies are small bits of information stored on your device that allow us to collect information about your activity on the site and App (such as pages you visit, time of your visits and the links you click on).
We will use the information we collect from you to:
We may perform the functions above directly, or we may use a third party vendor to perform them on our behalf. If we do use third party vendors, they will be obligated to use your personal information only to provide the required services to us.
When you register to use our service, you can choose to have your YouVoice profile viewable to (a) all users of YoiVoice (Public) ; (b) YouVoice Friends of your YouVoice Friends; or (c) your YouVoice Friends only. When you register to use YouVoice, your profile will be set as viewable to all users of YouVoice unless you select otherwise, when prompted to do so during the registration process.
Important – please be aware that users can potentially share screen shots of your chat logs and messages with other people and so you should take care not to reveal information which you wish to remain confidential when using the service. Messages sent to other YouVoice users who are YouVoice Friends and received from other YouVoice users who are YouVoice Friends may be stored locally on your device as well as centrally to provide the messaging services and may be accessed by YouVoice to comply with general legal requirements. You are unable to delete messages sent/received unless the YouVoice Friend to whom the message was sent or from whom it was received is deleted as a YouVoice Friend.
We do not share your personal information with others, except as indicated in this Policy or when we inform you and give you the opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. Under this Policy, we may share your personal information:
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
