Vshow is a fast and fun way to share experiences with your friends and the world around you. You can send a video link to friends,.
When you use these services and any others we roll out you'll inevitably share some information with us. We get that that can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information.
Information We Collect
There are three basic ways we collect information:
_ Information you choose to give us.
_ Information we get when you use our services.
_ Information we get from third parties.
Here's a little more detail on each of these categories.
Information You Choose to Give Us
When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Vshow account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you'd like to go by, a password, an email address. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information.
Of course, you'll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as video your friends. Keep in mind that the users you send. So, the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to Vshow as well: Don't send messages or share content that you wouldn't want someone to save or share.
It probably goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway: When you contact Vshow Support or communicate with us in any other way, we'll collect whatever information you volunteer.
Information We Get When You Use Our Services
When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you've used and how you've used them. We might know, for instance, that you watched a particular video. Here's a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. For example, we may collect information about:

How Long We Keep Your Content
Vshow lets you capture what it's like to live in the moment. On our end, that means that we automatically keep the content of your videosunless you delete it.
Finally and this is importan you should understand that users who see the content you provide can always save it using any number of techniques: camera, in-app functionality, or any other image-capture technology. It's also possible, as with any digital information, that someone might be able to access messages forensically or find them in a device's temporary storage. Keep in mind that, while our systems are designed to carry out our deletion practices automatically, we cannot promise that deletion will occur within a specific timeframe. And we may also retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as required by law.
Control over Your Information
We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.
_ Access and Updates. We strive to let you access and update most of the personal information that we have about you. There are limits though to the requests we'll accommodate. We may reject a request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of other users, requires technical efforts that are disproportionate to the request, is repetitive, or is unlawful. You can access and update most of your basic account information right in the app by visiting the app's Settings page.
