Thankr is a fast and fun way to share a thank you with your friends. You can send a
photo(s) and/or video(s) to friends.
When you use these services, you'll share some information with us. We get that that
can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how
we use it, whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and
update your information.
Information We Collect
There are three basic categories of information we collect:
- Information you choose to give us.
- Information we get when you use our services.
Here's a little more detail on each of these categories:
Information You Choose to Give Us
When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share
with us. For example, we require you register with Thankr, so we need to collect a few
important details about you, such as: an email address and a password.
Of course, you'll also provide us whatever information you send through the services,
such as Photos and Videos to your friends. Keep in mind that the users you send
Photos and Videos, 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 Thankr as well:
Don't send messages or share content that you wouldn't want someone to save or
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.
Content Information. We collect information about the content you provide, such as if
the recipient has viewed the content and the metadata that is provided with the content.
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, and mobile network
information (including the mobile phone number).
Device Phonebook. Because Thankr is all about communicating with friends, we
may-with your consent-collect information from your device's phonebook.
Camera and Photos. Our service requires us to collect images and/or videos from your
device's camera and photos. For example, you won't be able to send Photos or Videos
from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.
How We Use Information
What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: Provide you with
an amazing service. Here are some of the ways we do that:
- develop, operate, improve, deliver, maintain, and protect our products and services.
send you communications, including by email. For example, we may use email to
respond to support inquiries or to share information about our products, services, and
promotional offers that we think may interest 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.
contextualize your experience by, among other things, tagging your Memories content
using your precise location data (if, of course, you've consented to us collecting that
data) and applying other labels based on the content.
- 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
