In order for the chat feature to work on your device, Ably requires the same verification information in order to allow you to speak to another user within the App.

Information such as phone device, this information is captured automatically through the use of google or the Apple stores when you download the App. It becomes part of the analytics, and is also used to help determine things like which devices are seeing crashes etc in the google analytics. Google and Apple are Third Party Providers in this instance and as an example, this type of information is required by them to confirm you are able to receive the App to your device.

 

Much of this kind of information is already being sent to them every single day through your regular phone use, and use of just about every other application you would use in your day to day. As we are using Google and Apple, who automatically collect this information, we must disclose that this occurs.

The personal information required is not sold, or used for anything other than ensuring you are able to use the App and all of it's functions.
