We collect the phone numbers only from your contacts.

These data will be stored at Amazon Web Services and all data will be removed permanently once you disable the app. We will not share these data with any third parties.
Call Log: (only for Android)
We collect the phone numbers only from your call log. The reason for collection is that in order to prevent harassing calls, we screen incoming phone numbers and add potential harassing phone numbers to your blacklist with one click. These data will be stored at Amazon Web Services and all data will be removed permanently once you disable the app. We will not share these data with any third parties.
SMS Log: (only for Android)

Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, our Sites do not currently process or respond to "do-not-track" (DNT) settings in your web browser. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
If you choose to communicate with us or another user through social features available on our websites or mobile applications or through our social media pages, or other similar communication or messaging features or services, such information may be made publicly available.For security purposes, please do not include any password, social security number, payment card, or other sensitive information via these features. We have the right, but not the obligation to monitor messages and communications between and among users for security and training purposes. We may, but are not obligated to, remove any content we deem inappropriate.
Mobile platforms have permission systems for specific types of device data and notifications, such as camera and microphone as well as push notifications. Where applicable, you can change your settings on your device to either consent or oppose the collection of the corresponding information or the display of the corresponding notifications. Of course, if you do that, certain Services may lose full or partial functionality.
You can stop all information collection by the app by disabling call forwarding and deactivating your account by following the instructions on the Service's Settings screen and then uninstalling the app using the standard uninstall process for your device. If you uninstall the app from your mobile device, the unique identifier associated with your device will continue to be stored. If you reinstall the application on the same mobile device, we will be able to re-associate this identifier to your previous transactions and activities.
We may only retain certain call data such as calls, call recordings, voicemail, call screens, answerbot recordings, and transcriptions for up to six (6) months, after which they may be deleted and no longer accessible. Additionally, if you delete a recording, it will be deleted from our servers and no longer accessible. If you want to retain recordings or other call data for longer, you should go to call details and share information with your email or cloud storage account. You acknowledge and agree that you bear sole responsibility for the back-up of this information.
We use various efforts intended to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information collected through our Services. Despite these measures, however, we cannot and do not guarantee that information will be absolutely safe from interception or intrusion during transmission or while stored on our system, or otherwise, and you provide information to us at your own risk.
If you correspond with us by email, text message, or using Web forms like a "contact us" feature available through our Services, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure from access by unauthorized parties. We have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission. If you create an account as part of using our Services, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account password and for any activity that occurs under your account. Please notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account.
If we believe that the security of your personal information in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you. If we have your email address, we may notify you by email to the most recent email address you have provided us in your account profile. Please keep your email address in your account up to date. You can change that e-mail address anytime in your account profile. If you receive a notice from us, you can print it to retain a copy of it.

If you prefer for us to use the postal service to notify you in this situation, please let us know by submitting your request at the appropriate contact email in the How to Contact Us section. You can make this election any time, and it will apply to notifications we make after a reasonable time thereafter for us to process your request.
