1.1 Information you provide
(i) Your Account Information: You provide your mobile phone number to create a Bogger account. You provide us the phone numbers in your mobile address book on a regular basis, including those of both the users of our services and your other contacts. You confirm you are authorized to provide us such numbers. You must also add other information to your account, such as a profile name, profile picture, professional interest, country, and city.
(ii) Your Messages: We will retain your messages for a period of 30 days in the ordinary course of providing our Services to you (“Retention Period”). Once your messages (including your chats, photos, voice messages and files) are delivered, they will be retained for the Retention Period. After the Retention Period, your messages will only be stored on your own device unless such messages are stored on our servers for legal and/or business purposes in compliance with applicable laws. If a message cannot be delivered immediately (for example, if you are offline), we may keep it on our servers for the Retention Period as we try to deliver it. If a message is still undelivered after the Retention Period, we may delete it. To improve performance and deliver media messages more efficiently, such as when many people are sharing a popular photo or voice message, we may retain that content on our servers for a longer period of time. We also offer end-to-end encryption for our services, which is on by default. End-to-end encryption means that your messages are encrypted to protect against us and third parties from reading them.

These providers may provide us information about you in certain circumstances; for example, app stores may provide us reports to help us diagnose and fix service issues.
