We do not collect names, email addresses, or other contact information from users' mobile address book or contact lists other than mobile phone numbers 'our mobile application will associate whatever name the user has assigned to the mobile telephone number in his/her mobile address book or contact list ' and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on our servers and is not transmitted to us. The contents of messages that have been delivered by us are not copied, kept, or archived by us in the normal course of business. Our Service is meant to be an SMS replacement, using data service through a user's phone (either via cell network or wifi). Users type their messages, which are sent via data service to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be our user) if that recipient is online.

Other users of our app may see your Status Submissions in a way that is consistent with the use of our app. If another user has your mobile phone number stored in their mobile phone address book or contact list, they will be able to see your status information unless you have chosen to block such a user. 'Last Seen' information is available and displayed to each user who has registered with the app and which you have not blocked, and reflects the last approximate time our mobile application has been used or brought to the foreground on your mobile phone.

We also reserve the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of our app, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ourselves, our users or others.
We are currently ad-free but it may not be kept that way forever. We may have intentions to introduce advertisement into the product and you agree for the same.
We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through our app is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice on our app or through our Service if a security breach occurs.
