The Information Snaggl Collects
User Provided Information: You provide certain personally identifiable information including your first name, last name, email address; as well as optional information such as a profile image, work details, home address, fax or landline; as well as social media information to Snaggl when choosing to participate in various uses of the Snaggl Services. These include such things as updating your personal information or requesting information from your contacts. The information you are sharing with other Snaggl users and the Snaggl Client are defined in the privacy settings.
Auto Connect: When two Snaggl users have each others verified account email or verified account phone number in their address book, Snaggl will create a connection which shares the verified account phone number and the verified account email address with both users. These two fields become linked as either a ‘shared’ or ‘not shared’ option, but by default are both shared. Snaggl will also create a new account within the address book of the user which displays this User Provided Information in their address book. If another Snaggl user has your phone number stored in their address book; they will be notified you are using the Snaggl service and will be able to send you a connection request. Although Snaggl will not be liable for unauthorized use of this feature, you may be liable for the losses of Snaggl or others due to such unauthorized use.
Address Book Synchronisation: Snaggl will change and edit your address book based on your connections updates, as well as synchronize it with the Snaggl Server to secure your information. Privacy updates of connected contacts will be pushed to the client and will also change User Provided Information on your phone’s address book. You must notify Snaggl immediately of any loss or error on your address book or unauthorized use of your phone. Although Snaggl will not be liable for your losses of contact data, you may be liable for the losses of Snaggl or others due to such unauthorized use.
