While ProTC is not the publisher of the Application, it does offer the Application mobile analytics and intelligence services by collecting certain information relating to your use of the Application and/or other applications installed on your device, and other functions of your mobile device in order to allow the Application and other ProTC partners to deliver advertisements, products, and services that are relevant and meaningful to their users (collectively: the “Services”).
Information you provide
Account Information. You register a phone number when you create an account. Phone numbers are used to provide our Services to you and other users. You may optionally add other information to your account, such as a profile name and profile picture. This information is end-to-end encrypted.
Messages. We cannot decrypt or otherwise access the content of your messages or calls. App queues end-to-end encrypted messages on its servers for delivery to devices that are temporarily offline (e.g. a phone whose battery has died). Your message history is stored on your own devices.
Additional technical information is stored on Signal servers, including randomly generated authentication tokens, keys, push tokens, and other material that is necessary to establish calls and transmit messages. Signal limits this additional technical information to the minimum required to operate the Services.
Contacts. App can optionally discover which contacts in your address book are Signal users, using a service designed to protect the privacy of your contacts. Information from the contacts on your device may be cryptographically hashed and transmitted to the server in order to determine which of your contacts are registered.
User Support. If you contact User Support, any personal data you may share with us is kept only for the purposes of researching the issue and contacting you about your case.
Managing your information. You can manage your personal information in App’s application Settings. For example, you can update your profile information or choose to enable additional privacy features like a Registration Lock PIN.
Information we may share
Third Parties. We work with third parties to provide some of our Services. For example, our Third-Party Providers send a verification code to your phone number when you register for our Services. These providers are bound by their Privacy Policies to safeguard that information. If you use other Third-Party Services like YouTube, Spotify, Giphy, etc. in connection with our Services, their Terms and Privacy Policies govern your use of those services.
Other instances where App may need to share your data:
To meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
To enforce applicable Terms, including investigation of potential violations.
To detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
