Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features, for example, for login verification or “restore password”. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from Boontar.

Your Discoverability privacy settings control whether others can find you on Twitter by your email address or phone number.

For example, you may choose to upload and sync your address book so that we can help you find and connect with users you know or help other users find and connect with you.

You can delete your imported address book contacts at any time by visiting your Contacts Dashboard. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and contact information to respond to your request.

Following, Lists, Profile, and Other Public Information: Boontar.live is primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us through Boontar.live is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. Additionally, your public information includes published live broadcasts; the metadata provided in the recorded broadcasts, for example, the time and date you published the broadcast, and the client application you used to publish the broadcast; information about your account, such as creation time, language, country and time zone; and the lists you create, people you follow and the broadcasts you Like or Repost. Boontar.live broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate Boontar.live content into their services, and organizations such as universities, public health agencies, and market research firms that analyze the information for trends and insights. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features, to make the information more private if you want. For certain profile information fields, we provide you with blacklist settings to select who can see this information in your profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public. You can change the language and time zone associated with your account at any time using your account settings,
Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications: We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have private conversations with other Boontar.live users. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, such as by sending and receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. Please note that if you interact with public Boontar.live content shared with you via Direct Message, for instance by liking a broadcast shared via Direct Message, those interactions may be public. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate privately, please remember that recipients may copy, store, and re-share the contents of your communications.
Location Information: We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your broadcasts and in your Boontar.live profile.

We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as allowing you to live broadcasts with your location, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
Links: We may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on. Links, Broadcasts, and non-public communications like Direct Messages shared on the Services will be processed and links shortened to a link.

We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with Boontar.live. Boontar uses these technologies to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways.

Your privacy settings control who can tag you in the broadcasts. Our ad partners and affiliates may share information with us such as a browser cookie ID, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of an email address, as well as demographic or interest data and content viewed or actions taken on a website or app. Our ad partners, particularly our advertisers, may enable us to collect similar information directly from their website or app by integrating our advertising technology.
Personalizing Across Your Devices: When you log into your account with a browser or device, we will associate that browser or device with your account for purposes such as authentication and personalization. Depending on your settings, we may also personalize your experience on, and based on information from, other browsers or devices besides the ones you use to log into Boontar. For example, if you visit websites with sports content on your laptop, we may show you sports-related ads on Boontar.live for iOS. You can control whether we link your account to browsers or devices other than the ones you use to log into Boontar.live (or if you’re logged out, whether we link the browser or device you’re currently using to any other devices) through your Personalization and Data settings.
