Privacy Policy

What data are we collecting?

 We collect and store messages sent to BobbyChat via WhatsApp. However, we do not want to be able to associate messages with individuals or any of their personal data. For this reason, please do not include any personal information (i.e. your name, address, phone number, bank details etc) in your messages. Your WhatsApp number may be collected (and stored separately to any messages).

How will the data be used?

The data collected will be used to serve and improve BobbyChat. We may use a unique ID for each user for the purpose of collecting statistical data on usage of the service to improve the level of service. Messages may be stored with the unique ID for the same purposes. We may store and use your WhatsApp number to grant you access to the service.

What data do we collect via Twilio Studio?

To serve BobbyChat we use Twilio Studio, a third-party tool. This tool stores a message log containing personal data (WhatsApp phone number, region (e.g. US) and ProfileName). This data may be used to compute aggregate statistics and as backup.

What data does WhatsApp collect?

WhatsApp messages are end-to-end encrypted which means that WhatsApp cannot access your message content. WhatsApp collects aggregate data such as the number of messages sent, delivered and read.

Will our privacy policy change?

We value your privacy and want you to feel comfortable using BobbyChat so please reach out via info@bobby-chat.com if you have any questions or suggestions. We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website.
