Services Terms and Privacy Policy

Last modified 22 of February

Chat Real is an awesome way to create stories and conversations with your friends. You can invite friends to a Real. People invited can add photos to the Real from their camera or photo library, add filters, text and emojis.

With our service, you are going to share some information with us. Since we realise your privacy is important, we are going to be straight with you on the information we take, how we collect it, who we share it with and the choices we give you to control access and update your information.

Remember to respect people and the community because we don’t want negativity ruining the vibe on the app. Main rule is to treat people the way you want to be treated. If we find out there is bullying on our platform we will work to remove the offenders from the platform.

This policy is here to be a guide for anyone who wants to know what Chat Real is doing with your information and how to use the app, it’s also a breakdown of how we will provide our service to you. If you want to clarify what we have said here, just give us a bell privacy@chatreal.com we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

What do we collect

Information you give us

This is the information you give us that you choose to on sign up. To use Chat Real you need a phone number, username and email. We also ask for a profile picture. This information will remain inside the app, as we do not allow third party applications accessing this data.

We also will ask for information about your contacts, so you can help find other people. You need to accept this for the app to be allowed to do it. We HASH (encrypt) all phone numbers leaving your phone to increase the level of privacy. We don’t want some panty sniffer getting hold of your phone number or photos.

Information we Monitor

This is information that is generated through your use of the app. A lot of this is to figure out how to make our services better. For example we will know how many Reals in total you belong to and how long you spend on the app each day. We use analytics tools which separate your identity from the data so we are not looking directly at your account.

We also take device information from your phone, the make, Language, wireless network and mobile network information, and OS that is running on it. This is so we can monitor the health of the app and identify and solve any problems (we aim to not have too many) that the app may experience.

Network

This is from other users in the app who will share their contacts, we will engage in using other parties information to create a fuller picture of people using the app. This involves if a person shares their phone book and you are in it we will present you to them as a potential contact. We make sure to encrypt all data gathered this way so that you and your friends never have nasty people getting hold of your data.

Children

If you are under 13 sorry you are unable to use our app. If we find an under 13 year old using the app you will be excluded from use and all your data will be destroyed.
