Information We Collect
What You Directly Provide Us
For you to create a Slap account, we need to collect a few important details about you: your name you’d like to go by, a password, an email address we can contact you at, a phone number, your age or date of birth, gender and billing information (if applicable). For additional Services beyond the basic Slap account, we may ask you for additional information. We want you, though, to be in control of your information, so we let you update or correct most of the basic Slap account information by editing your account settings within Slap. And while we hope you’ll remain a lifelong Slap’r, if for some reason you ever want to delete your account, just visit this link; but keep in mind that we may retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as required by law.
What You Automatically Provide Us When You Use Our Services
Content Information: We collect information about the activity you schedule through our Services. For example, we collect information such as the time, date, location and which friends you’ve invited and which are attending.
Device Information: We collect information about your device, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers (including MAC address and IMEI), browser type and language, mobile device phone number, and mobile network information. We also collect certain device information that will help us diagnose problems in the (hopefully rare) event you experience any crash or other problem while using our Services. So, for example, if we detect a crash or other problematic event, we may collect the list of apps on your device and other information about your device’s performance at the time of the event for troubleshooting purposes.
Website Log Information: We collect log file information when you use our websites. That information includes, among other things, your web browser type and language, access times, pages viewed, your IP address, and the website you visited before navigating to our websites.
Information We Collect From Other Sources
If another user allows us to collect information from his or her device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with the information we collect through Slap.

Where Information Is Processed
