1. COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
We may collect information about you in a variety of ways. The information we may collect via the Application depends on the content and materials you use, and includes:
1.1 Personal Data
Demographic and other personally identifiable information (such as your email address for free subscription plans, paid subscriptions require some additional data: name, address, company, phone number) that you voluntarily give to us when choosing to use the Application. If you choose to share data about yourself via a chat Application, please be advised that all data you disclose there will be accessible to any participant of the chat until you delete it.
In addition to this data, we store a date of the Application registration and a date of the last login to the Application which are needed to perform our retention policy.
1.2 Derivative Data
When you access an Application, our server can send you a notification about a login from new device. This information is deleted from the server immediately after sending. Our Zero-knowledge concept of data storage prevents creating server logs of your activity in the Application.

1.4 Mobile Device Data
