Information We Collect
There are three basic ways we collect information:
- - Information you choose to give us
- - Information we get when you use our services
- - Information we get from third parties
Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.
Information You Choose to Give Us
By visiting and interacting with VegoLive, its App and/or its Service, you provide us with Personal
Information which may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- - Personally Identifiable Information: may include, without limitation, information
provided when you register to use the App and/or the Service, including your name, profile
picture, date of birth, phone number, phone book content, address, email address, occupation,
employer, gender, age, birthday, Facebook account info and friend list, and/or other social
network usernames and ‘likes' and preferences, friend lists and number of friends you have via
social networks, messages to other users of the App and the Service, use information regarding
your use of the Service, profile picture that you upload via the App or the Service, and browser
- - The information you choose to provide above may be shared with your contacts on our
service. You have total control over your profile information and you can access to modify at
any time. In addition, if you register to our service with your Facebook account (e.g. Facebook
Connect), we may store your Facebook ID and corresponding token on our servers and, if you give
us your expressed consent, we will have access to and may collect certain information that you
make available on Facebook (for example, your first and last names, email address, profile
picture, your friend lists and birthdays). Your Profile is available to other users of the
Service who are connected to you on our service. In addition, unless you opt-out (which you may
do so at any time in the settings of our application), your Profile is discoverable by other
users. You may choose to “block” any user on our platform to prevent unwanted access of your
- - You may also choose to share your mobile device’s Contacts list with us (including
names, numbers, emails, Facebook ID, Apple ID, etc) and we will store it on our servers to help
you better improve our service, e.g. connecting with friends on our service. If you do not want
us to store this information, you may opt-out through your account settings or notify us via
email. If done so, we will not be able to offer some of our features on our service.
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services. Keep in mind
that the users you send texts, images, and any other content to can always save that content or copy
it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to VegoLive
as well: Don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.
It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: When you contact VegoLive Support or
communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer.
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 used one of the filter in app and the number
of times you have used this filter. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we
collect when you use our services:
Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. We may collect
information including but not limited to:
- - How you interact with the services, such as which filters you view or the number of
times apply to discover.
- - Content created when using the service. It includes creating or uploading different
kinds of content to the App, including without limitation, photos, text, messages, posts, html,
URLs, pictures, video and other content (collectively, “User Contributed Content”), and the
metadata that is provided with the content. As you upload User Contributed Content you should be
mindful of your privacy as well as the privacy of others.
- - How you communicate with other VegoLive users, such as their names, the time and date of
your communications, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you
exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a
message or capture a screenshot). We allow you to share text messages, photos, screenshots,
videos and other forms of communications on our service with other users, and if you choose to
do so your text messages, photos, screenshots, videos and other communications may be stored on
our servers. In addition, if you choose to share these items with other users, we may not be
able to remove them from our servers or make them unavailable to anyone you have shared them
with. Sending and sharing text messages, photos, screenshots, videos or other communications on
our service is your decision. By choosing to share that information, you should understand that
you may no longer be able to control how that information is used and that it may become
publicly available. We are not responsible for any use or misuse of information you share.
- - Device Information. We collect device-specific information, such as the hardware model,
operating system version, advertising identifier, unique application identifiers, unique device
identifiers, browser type, language, wireless network, none direct display of content
moderation, and mobile network information (including the mobile phone number).
- - User content e.g. photos, screenshots, comments, and other materials that you create on
the service may also be collected. Your photos and videos may be captured by other users on the
service, and those content can be stored and used by us or third party services (e.g. Facebook)
for content moderation and community safety monitoring purposes. You can change third party
sharing options in our product settings or writing to us directly.

your consent—collect information from your device’s phonebook.

Information We Collect from Third Parties
We may collect information that other users provide about you when they use our services. For
example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phonebook—and you’re one
of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with
other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other companies
that are owned or operated by us, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the
information we collect through our services.
How We Use Information
What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: Provide you with an amazing set
of products and services that we relentlessly improve. But we do a lot more as well, such as:
- - Develop, operate, improve, deliver, maintain, and protect our products and services.
- - Communicate with you.
- - Monitor and analyze trends and usage.
- - Personalize the services by, among other things, suggesting friends or profile
information, or customizing the content we show you, including ads.
- - Enhance the safety and security of our products and services.
- - Verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity.
- - Use information we’ve collected from cookies and other technology to enhance the
services and your experience with them.

local cache so that you can open the app and view content faster.

further improve and optimize our service for you. We may share information about you in the

request comes from someone you actually know, we may share whether you and the requestor have
VegoLive friends in common;

let us access your device phonebook, we may share information about you with other users who
have your phone number in their device phonebook;

You expressly agree that information provided when you register the App and/or the content your
created when using the App (including without limitation, photos, text, messages, posts, html, URLs,
pictures, video and other content), may be recorded, stored, published and made available to the
rest of VegoLive users. Furthermore, other users may follow you on the App, and your followers can see,
for example, the user contributed content that you have uploaded to the App. Individuals reading
this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and
without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific
information you may deem private in the information you provided or content that you create in the
Your information may also be stored and process in any country in which we provide service to due to

Community safety is our number one priority and some of the above user information are mandatory in
order to create a safe community for all users.
Information You Choose to Share with Third Parties
The services may also contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations,
or be a co-branded or third-party-branded service that’s being provided jointly with or by another
company. By going to those links, using the third-party integration, or using a co-branded or
third-party-branded service, you may be providing information (including personal information)
directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for
how those third parties collect or use your information. To the extent that you use a profile that
may be available to others on our Service, you are solely responsible for its content and accuracy
at all times. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party
website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through
How Long We Keep Your Content
Finally—and this is important—you should understand that users who see the content you provide can
always save it using any number of techniques: screenshots, in-app functionality, or any other
image-capture technology. It’s also possible, as with any digital information, that someone might be
able to access messages forensically or find them in a device’s temporary storage. If any deletion
of user information of our App happens, we cannot promise that deletion will occur within a specific
timeframe. And we may also retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as
required by law.
How we protect Your Information
Protecting user privacy and personal information is a top priority for us. We process your personal
information to improve and enforce our security measures, combat spam, malware, malicious
activities, or security risks, and to monitor and verify your identity so that unauthorized users do
not access your account with us. Access to any user information is restricted to our employees,
contractors, agents, and third-party service providers ONLY whom needs to know the information in
order to provide, operate, develop, maintain, support, and optimize the our service experience and
security. We use password protection, access logs, and system monitoring to safeguard the
confidentiality and security of all user information. Due to the inherent nature of the internet and
related technology, we do not guarantee the protection of information under our control against
loss, misuse, or alteration.
Control over Your Information
We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.
- - Access and Updates. We strive to let you access and control the personal information
that we have about you. There are limits though to the requests we’ll accommodate. We may reject
a request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of
other users or is unlawful. You can access and update your account information right in the app
by visiting the app’s Settings page. If you need to access, update, or delete any other personal
information that we may have, you can put in a request here. Because your privacy is important
to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let
you access or update your personal information. You can also remove our service from your mobile
device or process account deletion.
- - Revoking Permissions. If you change your mind about our ongoing ability to collect
information from certain sources that you have already consented to, such as your phonebook,
camera, photos, or location services, you can simply revoke your consent by changing the
settings on your device if your device offers those options. Of course, if you do that, certain
services may lose full functionality.
- - Account Deletion. You can remove your data anytime you want. Account deletion can be
accessed within the app. Upon your request, we will temporarily disable your account to prepare
for removal. During this time you can cancel your deletion request and we will resume your
account. Upon the end of 30 days, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your
data from our servers. Please note, some information may remain in archived/backup copies for
legal purposes or required by law (for instance, some “traffic data” may be kept for one year to
comply with statutory data retention obligations).

and online services over time and across different services. This information may be used to, among
other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better
understand your online activity.
Additionally, some companies may use the information they collect on our services to deliver targeted
advertisements on behalf of us or other companies, including on third-party websites and apps. VegoLive
does not currently respond to do-not-track signals that may be sent from your device. If we do so in
the future, we will provide information about that practice in an updated version of this privacy

notice (such as adding a statement to our websites’ homepages or providing you with an in-app
