Information given by you - When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a Hootout account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you'd like to go by, a password, an email address, a phone number, and your date of birth. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information. Of course, you'll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as images and video to your friends. Keep in mind that the users you send images, video, and any other content to can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to Hootout as well: Don't send messages or share content that you wouldn't want someone to save or share.
User data is handled securely, including transmitting it using modern cryptography (for example, over HTTPS).
