Personal Information Collected by Spygram
Personal Information, which we may collect about you, falls into the following two categories:
When you access or use Spygram, we automatically collect information about you, including:
- Usage Information: When you send or receive messages, only the aggregated form of data is collected and the user it belongs to remains anonymous. Aggregated information is a collection of statistically information that is not personally identifiable. Aggregated information can be basic usage statistics such as but not limited to, the number of messages sent by all users or what types of messages users send. We do not attempt to identify users associated with any of this information.
- Device Information: Spygram will collect a hashed representation of both the mobile device type and the mobile device’s hardware ID during registration, in order to connect that information to the user’s account and to tie that account to the specific device. The hashed representation provides security for the user so the information will not be duplicated or tampered with.
Use of Your Personal Information
We will only use the aggregated information we collect for reporting metrics to better understand how users interact with Spygram and with other users when you send them messages, including your display name and the contents of the message you send them. We share your username with other users when they use our “Add Contact/Find Friend” feature to add you to their “User Contract” lists. We also follow whom users exchange messages with most, as determined by an algorithm generated from the information within your Contacts list. This is done anonymously; we will not be able to identify the user directly since data stored on the Spygram databases are completely hashed.
Sharing and Disclosing Your Personal Information
Spygram does not share any user information with any third parties, with the exception of the third-party service provider with whom we share the user’s phone number or email address for the sole purpose of sending the user an email or SMS confirmation if they choose to associate their phone number with a display name.
Spygram will only disclose user-provided Personal Information and automatically collected information when it is reasonably necessary to comply with demands or requests from a regulatory body, government authorities, courts or law enforcement or to protect the safety of any person, or to address fraud, security, or technical issues or to protect Spygram’s rights or property. Spygram will use reasonable efforts within its power to notify the user before disclosing any information.
You should note that some of our service providers may be located in other jurisdictions outside of Canada. When this is the case, it is possible that the jurisdiction’s government, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your Personal Information through their particular laws.
Retention and Destruction of Your Personal Information
Spygram does not store Personal Information in retrievable form. Spygram cannot access user’s messages because all data that is stored is encrypted limiting any method of retrieval.
For security of transactions, Spygram uses the Axolotl cryptographic protocol in combination with 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, Diffie-Hellman key exchange, TLS, and the Argon2 hash function, which encrypts any information you send to us electronically. This standard provides perfect forward secrecy, and deniable authentication. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. While Spygram strives to protect your Personal Information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed secure, and Spygram cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit through Spygram.
