Information We Collect

For registration, you are only required to provide your mobile phone number or your email address, depending on the device(s) you are using on the Service. You may also provide personally identifiable information, but that is optional. We use this information to connect you to your friends, family and others on the Service.
In addition, when you install the Service on your device and register with Tango, you will be asked to allow us access to your address book. If you consent, we will have access to contact information in your address book on the devices you use for the Service (names, numbers and emails, but not notes or other personal information in your address book)and we will store it on our servers and use it to help you use the Service, for example, by synchronizing your Tango contacts between different devices you may want to use with the Service. If you do not want Tango to store this information, you may opt-out through your account settings in the Tango application at any time. However we may not be able to offer some of the features that require this information. Tango may also collect and gather non-personally identifiable information, such as profile information including country of residence and preferences. In addition, Tango may collect information about your and others’ usage of and interaction with the Service and our websites, including calls, numbers of calls made by members, call durations, usage by geographies, device and connection information, IP address, device capability, bandwidth, statistics on page views, network type and traffic to and from our websites.
Tango allows you to share text messages, photos, videos and other communications (such as greeting cards or interactions during games) in the Tango application with other users, and if you choose to do so your text messages, photos, videos and other communications will be stored on our servers. In addition, if you choose to share these items with other Tango users, we may not be able to remove them from our servers or make them unavailable to anyone you have shared them with. Sending text messages, photos, videos or other communications in the Tango application is your decision. By choosing to share that information, you should understand that you may no longer be able to control how that information is used and that it may become publicly available (depending in part on your actions or the actions of others with whom you have shared the information). Tango is not responsible for any use or misuse of information you share.
