This Privacy Policy explains how informations about you are collected, used and disclosed by WaeMee and our subsidiaries (collectively, "WaeMee", “Wae Mee”, “WM”) when you use our websites, mobile applications, connected objects and other online products and services (collectively, the "Services") or when you otherwise interact with us.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites' homepages or sending you a notification or email). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

 

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, use the Services to send or receive messages, including photos, videos, text, live streaming and sound taken or publish via our Services ("WaeMee”), request customer support or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your username, password, email address, phone number, age and any other information you choose to provide.

When you send or receive messages, we also temporarily collect, process and store the contents of those messages (such as photo, video, caption, text, sound, live stream) on our servers. The contents of those messages are also temporarily stored on the devices of recipients. We cannot guarantee that deletion of any message always occurs within a particular time frame. We also cannot prevent others from making copies of your messages (e.g., by taking a screenshot or taking a picture of the screen). In addition, as for any other digital information, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients' devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted. You should not use WaeMee to send messages if you want to be certain that the recipient cannot keep a copy.
