The key functionality of Omega is a video chat mobile application where users can meet cool and

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
By visiting and interacting with Omega, its App and/or its Service, you provide us with Personal
Information which may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Personally Identifiable Information: may include, without limitation, information provided when
you register to use the App and/or the Service, including your name, profile picture, date of
birth, phone number, phone book content,
address, email address, occupation, employer, gender, age, birthday, and friend list, and/or
other social network usernames and ‘likes' and preferences, friend lists and number of friends
you have via social networks, messages
to other users of the App and the Service, use information regarding your use of the Service,
profile picture that you upload via the App or the Service, and browser information.
- The information you choose to provide above may be shared with your contacts on our service.
You have total control over your profile information and you can modify at any time. Your
Profile is available to other users of the
Service who are connected to you on our service. In addition, unless you opt-out (which you may
do so at any time in the settings of our application), your Profile is discoverable by other
users. You may choose to “block” any
user on our platform to prevent unwanted access of your Personal Information.
- You may also choose to share your mobile device’s Contacts list with us (including names,
numbers, emails, Apple ID, etc) and we will store it on our servers to help you better improve
our service, e.g. connecting with friends
on our service. If you do not want us to store this information, you may opt-out through your
account settings or notify us via email. If done so, we will not be able to offer some of our
features on our service.
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services. Keep in
mind that the users you send texts, images, and any other content to can always save that
content or copy it outside the app. So, the
same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to Omega 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 Omega 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, how many people you’ve had a video chat
conversation with and for how long. Here’s a
fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

collect information including but not limited to:

pictures, video and other content (collectively, “User Contributed Content”), and the metadata
that is provided with the content. As you upload User Contributed Content you should be mindful
of your privacy as well as the privacy
- How you communicate with other Omega users, such as their names, the time and date of your
communications, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you
exchange messages with the most, and your interactions
with messages (such as when you open a message or capture a screenshot). We allow you to share
text messages, photos, screenshots, videos and other forms of communications on our service with
other users, and if you choose to do
so your text messages, photos, screenshots, videos and other communications may be stored on our
servers. In addition, if you choose to share these items with other users, we may not be able to
remove them from our servers or make
them unavailable to anyone you have shared them with. Sending and sharing text messages, photos,
screenshots, videos or other communications on our service is your decision. By choosing to
share that information, you should understand
