BOO! Privacy Policy

Welcome to BOO! ("BOO!," "we," "us" or "our").

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, and any software provided on or in connection with BOO!services (collectively, the"Service"),and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

1. Information We Collect

1.1 Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. We may collect information you choose to provide to us, such as your‎ name, email address, mobile phone number,‎ your photo, your friends’ contact information as stored on your phone, and the content that you create, such as your texts, photos, and videos. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic BOO! account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go by, a password, an email address, and a phone number. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information.

1.2 Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you sent a few Boos to friends. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services :

1.2.1 Usage Information. 

We collect information about your activity through our services. For example, we may collect information about:

  • how you interact with the services, such as which lenses you view or apply to Boos or messages.
  • Camera, Photos & Microphone. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera, photos and microphone. For example, you won’t be able to send Boos or upload photos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.
  • Device Phonebook. Because BOO! is all about communicating with friends, we may—with your consent—collect information from your device’s phonebook.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we’ll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website and mobile application.
