Privacy Statement

Your privacy when using ChatMate app

Your privacy is of very high priority for us. We are treating your personal data confidently and within the requirements by law and the description of this privacy statement.

When using ChatMate a fully anonymous usage profile is created, which is stored on our servers.

Thereby the following data is stored:

  • a randomly generated ID
  • the date/time of first launching the App
  • the date/time of last launching the App
  • your IP address, when last launching the App
  • a number that indicates, how often you have launched the App
  • the version of ChatMate you are currently using
  • rough IP-based geographic information
  • info about your device: device type, operating system version

When using a free version of ChatMate additional data is collected by Google Inc. as the App uses Google’s Admob service for displaying personalized ads. You can find detailed information about what kinds of data is collected by Admob in the Google Privacy Policy.

Important: ChatMate never transmits your address book, chat contents, contact information or media attachments to us. Chats and chat data are handled directly by WhatsApp (ChatMate for WhatsApp) and Facebook (ChatMate for Facebook).

Data collected by ChatMate will never be sold or made accessible to a third-party, with the exception of Google Inc. (for free versions) and our partners DevMate and Paddle on which we rely to host our site and web services.

In no event will any data be sold or made accessible to a third party (except for Google Inc., when using free versions of ChatMate).

We would be glad to answer any questions you may have about this privacy policy and the way we handle your data. Simply email with any comments or queries.
