A full explanation what data we gather, how we use them and how you can protect yourself, is available in our Privacy Explanation.
In our app, you are able to set the following privacy options:
Allow Anonymous Usage Statistics
This option is activated by default and enables us to track your usage of Tellonym in an anonymised way. With this data, nobody, including us, will be able to map the gathered data to you. This helps us a lot with understanding our product better and improves the features you use the most. Of course, you can disable this option if you don’t feel comfortable.
Allow Emails Other Than Transactional
This options is activated by default and allows us to send you emails which are non-transactional. This, for example, includes information about product updates. Transactional Emails are emails like “Forgot password” or confirmation emails which you only receive after requesting them. If you don’t want to receive other emails than transactional emails from us, please disable this option.
Allow Others to Find Me by Phone
This option is activated by default and allows your friends to find your profile when they uploaded their contact book and you connected your account to a phone number. This makes it easier for you and your friends to find each other on Tellonym. Nobody is able to get your phone number through your Tellonym profile, this option only enables users who already have your phone number to find you. If you don’t want your friends to find you when they upload their contact book, disable this option.
Allow Others to Find Me by Location
This option is activated if you gave us the permission to use your location and allows your friends to find your profile through our attribute based search. We never display your exact location and only use it for matching purposes. If you don't want us to use your exact location to be suggested to others, you can turn off this option.
Show Activity Status
This option is enabled by default. We show other Tellonym users if you are active or just have been. If you don’t want others to know if you are active, please disable this option. This also disables the ability for you to see the activity status of other profiles.
