3. What data do we collect, how do we use it and why is it legal to do so?

We collect some personal information when you sign up to HALO CHAT after Accepting the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy terms, and while you are using some functionality of the HALO CHAT.

Categories of personal data we collect and process:

Registration and account information: your phone number  name, surname(Optional), avatar, device ID. which are visible to other HALO CHAT. users, language and region code, which is derived from your phone number prefix, are used for app functionality and stats. None of the listed is shared with third parties and is only used inside the system. 

Your phone book contacts: when accessing Halo Chat contacts for the first time,Halo Chat asks permission to access the User's phone book contacts to upload them into the Halo Chat contacts section and to the Halo Chat servers. While the local copy is to provide the user a smooth experience using contacts inside Halo Chat to call, send messages, etc, sending User contacts to the servers is done to be able to match them with Halo Chat users to mark which of them are Halo Chat users and which are not. We call this whole process of copying User's phone book contacts into the Halo Chat and sending it to Halo Chat servers "Contacts Sync". Contacts sync is done every time the User uses any of the Contacts functionality of the Halo Chat , and if the process does not manage to finish while the User browses away, it might continue also when Halo Chat is in the background. On every Contact Sync the Halo Chat checks if there are new contacts to copy or remove, thus keeping User's Halo Chat contacts in sync with the User's phone book contacts. Phone book contacts do not contain contact names and are not shared with any 3rd party.

• Your device and connection information: We collect device and connection information when you install, access and use our services. This includes information about your device model and operating system; application version; connection data, such as phone number; device operation information and identifiers, such as device identifiers.
