3. Your rights and your choices

You can control how personal data is collected or shared, as well as how we communicate with you. Here are some of the ways you can customize your choices.

Choose how we collect personal data

You may choose to limit the personal data you provide when our apps or services request it. To help make choices that are right for you, it’s important to understand that personal data helps us provide a richer, more personalized experience for you. Also, some personal data is required for our services to function at all.

For example, sharing your contacts helps make it easier for you to find the people you want to interact with. If you choose not to share your contacts with us, you can still use our mobile apps, but some actions may not be as fast or easy as it would be if shared your contacts

When creating an account with us, if you choose not to provide information that is required for an account to function, like your name and email address, we will not be able to create an account for you.

Choose how we communicate with you

Your choices about how we communicate with you differ depending on the purpose of the message and how it is delivered. Some messages are considered optional and some are necessary for you to manage your accounts with us. We use email, text messages, push notifications on your mobile device, and even paper mail depending on the situation and your preferences.

You can click the unsubscribe link in a marketing email, opt out of a text message or turn off notifications on your device. You can also change your account’s notification settings or the notification preferences on your device.

You won’t be able to opt out of messages that are considered necessary for you to manage your account, such as receipts and emails that alert you to changes in your account’s status that require your attention. You may be able to decide how we send those messages, such as by email, text message, or a notification on your mobile device.
