1. How information is collected and used
Personal profile information. When an account is created, we may collect personal information that you submit, such as your username, first and last name and email address. Your photo will be stored in the server if you choose to have your photo linked to your account. If you choose to login via Facebook, personal information such as your name, email and profile picture will be collected.
Address book contacts. After you have installed and launched the app, users who are in your address book will appear in the Members List, where you can add them as your contact. You can only start to chat with your contact only after he or she has accepted your request. You can also search and invite your contacts to use the Layers app.
Messages. We collect information when you message any of your contacts. We provide end-to-end encryption of all your text messages and urls of your other types (image, video, audio, location and document) of messages.
Geolocation data. The app’s geolocation feature allows close friends or family members within a group to locate one another’s location on a map. By default, all your personal geolocation data is set to private. In order to share your realtime live location with your group members, you have to grant the app’s permission to access your geolocation data and enable your location to be shared with the specific group in the settings.
2. Sharing of your information
GLABS SOLUTIONS PTE. LTD. believe that personal privacy is of utmost importance. As such, we do not share your personal information with any third parties for advertising, research or analytic purposes.
3. How we protect your information
GLABS SOLUTIONS PTE. LTD. makes use of administrative and technological safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information that is collected. Every account created is linked to the user’s phone number and verified. Two users can only start communicating when one has added the other, and the other has accepted the request.
In spite of all the necessary safeguards in place, no security system is 100% impenetrable. Do feedback to us if you come across any security loopholes. We will take the necessary steps to investigate and rectify the problem.
4. Your choices about providing personal information and granting permissions
Privacy options. You may choose to decline to submit any personal information or grant any permission, in which case you may not be able to enjoy Layers with its complete functions and features. For example, if you do not grant permission for Layers to access location data, your family members will not be able to find your location on the map and vice versa.
Changing your profile picture and mobile phone number. You can change your profile picture and mobile phone number in "My Profile" settings page. Phone number authentication would be required for changing of mobile phone number.
Deleting your user account. You can delete your user account at any time by using the in-app delete user account feature in "My Profile" settings page. Deleting your account will delete your account info and profile picture and remove you from any user groups you may be in.
