This Privacy Policy (“Policy") sets out how we, Salo App Inc. and (or) its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates, if applicable (“Salo App, Inc.”, “Company”, “we”, or “us”), makers of the Salo video and audio messages sharing app (the “Salo App”) use and protect your personal information that you provide to us and the content you share and create via Salo App (“App”), or that is otherwise obtained or generated by us, in connection with your use of the App.

Privacy Principles

This Policy applies to anyone who accesses the App. By using the App, you acknowledge that the processing of your personal information and content you share and create will take place as described in the present Policy.

So, we are clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that is capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked with you, such as your name (nickname), mobile number, email, the date of your birthday and, if you choose, your photo.

Personal information may also include:
- Payment details, for example, in case of making transactions in relation to the purchase of some parts of the App, which are charged on a subscription basis (“Subscription Offerings”) as it is described in the Terms of Use;
- Your contacts, in case you will give us the access to your phone’s address book as described in the present Policy.
1. Types of information processed by Salo App Inc.

a. Basic Account Data

To create a Salo App account (“Account”), you provide your mobile number, your name (nickname), your email address, and the date of your birthday, and may choose to provide your photo. Only other registered Salo App users that:

may see your name (nickname), photo, mobile number, email, birth day and/or birth month.

Users who are in a group with you may see only your name (nickname) you provided to the App unless you appear in their phone’s address book or you change the settings and allow all users of the App see your account data.

Note that users who have you in their contacts will see you by the name they’ve saved and not by the name you provided to Salo App. If you chose to provide them, we collect your birth day and month so people you know get reminded when it’s your birthday.

Please also note that your name (nickname) and photo (if you decide to provide it) will be visible to all other users of the App who can search for you by name (nickname), if you do not disable this feature in the App settings.

We may also offer you as a possible contact to contact people you may know (without disclosing your phone number), if you do not disable this feature.

b. Video and audio messages

Salo App is a cloud service. We may collect and store, and transfer to the users you select the video and audio messages (or “Content”), you create and want to share with such selected users in chats, including group ones. We store the Content on our servers on the conditions described below so that you can access your Content during a particular period of time to review and (or) download from any of your devices that have the App without having to rely on third-party backups or use up your phone’s memory.

We hereby declare that we will never read, listen to or view the content of video and audio messages you share via the App. You can be sure that we will use the Content and personal information only in the manner described in the present Policy and our Terms of Use.

However, any user of the App has the possibility to complain to us about the unacceptability of the content that he or she received from another user, and therefore such content may be completely deleted at our discretion.

c. Contacts

You may choose to provide us with your friends' contact information (your phone’s address book) as stored on your phone. We store such mobile phone numbers on our servers and use them as unique identifiers so that it is easy for you to find and communicate with other people you know and who already use the App. We will ask your permission by sending you a push-notification before syncing your contacts, and you can still use the app without giving it access to your contacts (though you will have a harder time finding people you know who also use Salo App).

We store your contacts on our servers also in order to notify you as soon as one of your contacts creates a Salo App Account and to properly display their names. We only need the number and name for this to work and store no other data about your contacts.

You can always stop syncing contacts or delete them from our servers in Settings > Privacy & Security > Data Settings.

Our automatic algorithms also use this data to suggest which of your contacts you might like to communicate with on Salo App. We use this information to suggest people to invite to join Salo App but we do not contact anyone in your phone’s contact list without your permission.

We do not share your contacts with third parties unless required to do so in response to valid legal requests, such as through a court order or search warrant.

d. Information about actions.

When you use the App, we will track, and other users will be able to see information about your network status, information about receiving and viewing messages sent to you, the time and duration messages. If you don't want other users to know that you are online or have viewed certain messages, you can disable the corresponding options in the app settings. As for the data about the status of messages, we believe that they are important for other App users, so you cannot disable the provision of this data.

e. Information about the device and its location.

We may collect additional information if you access the application through a specific device (for example, the unique identifier of your mobile device; the IP address of the connection session; information about the operating system of your mobile device, about your browser, browser language or operating system; about your wireless network, etc.) to analyze usage and trends and personalize and improve the App.

3. User Support

If you contact Salo App support, any Personal Information you may share with us is used only for the purposes of researching the issue and contacting you about your request.

4. Third Party service providers.

In order to provide you with the best functioning of our App, we may sometimes, if necessary, share your Personal information with our affiliates, carriers, partner service providers and/or agents. For example, the third party banking organizations or other providers of payment, email delivery, analytical services, customer support, or hosting services.

We will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your Personal information and to observe the relevant legislation.

We use third-party analytics Service Providers to automatically log information about you and your mobile device, and how you interact with the App. For example, when you access the App, we may log your operating system type, browser type and language, the pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times, Internet protocol (IP) address, your mobile device ID, mobile device serial number, unique user ID, wireless carrier, and information about your use of and actions on the App. Salo App collects this additional technical data to analyze usage trends and give us more information about how people use the App to better the user experience.

To place ads within our App, we have the legal right to share with our partners a unique identifier that is not tied to the user's identity, but may contain some technical data about the user (application language, country, city, age, device data).

A unique advertising identifier is generated by your mobile device.
