When you use Keedoo, we collect personal information that you provide to us. This includes:
When you set up an account, we may ask you to provide information about yourself, including your name, kid’s name, phone number, profile pictures, user name and date of birth.
We may also ask you to provide us with some additional personal information about you that will be visible in our Products, such as a profile picture, and a bio in your profile to tell other Keedoo users more about you. When you change your profile picture we store a copy of the new picture you upload and retain all profile pictures you uploaded previously for trust and safety purposes and in accordance with our data retention policies.
You may choose to connect your other social media accounts, or sync your contacts..
When you use our Products, we collect additional personal information based on your activity and other personal information you might choose to provide. This includes:
We collect information about when and how you use our Products. This includes information about chats and groups you create, join and chatting. It also includes who your friends.
We store the messages you send to and receive from other users and information about those messages. We review the contents of these messages if a user reports, or we otherwise detect, a potential trust and safety violation or potentially illegal or illicit activity.
We collect information about the messages you send us when you contact us with questions or feedback, including the contents of those messages.
If you give us permission to sync your contacts, we will store identifiers known as hash values derived from the phone numbers of your contacts, and we will update your contacts periodically. Similarly, if you invite somebody to join Keedoo, we will store a hash value derived from the phone number you provide. We do not collect names, email addresses, or any other information associated with your contacts.
We may collect information from and about the devices you use. In particular, we may collect information about your hardware and software, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, browser type, and information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, IP address, and signal strength.
Keedoo users may sync their contact lists to Keedoo in order to help Keedoo connect them to existing users, invite new users, and to connect users and their contacts with one another on Keedoo. Similarly, users may send people invitations by manually entering a telephone number. In either case, the only information Keedoo stores is a hash value derived from the phone number. Keedoo does not collect names or any other information associated with your contacts, and we do not share the hash values we collect or make them available to others.
We use the personal information we collect to provide our Products to you and to improve them. Specifically, we use the data we collect to:
- Register your account, verify your identity, and verify the accuracy of your information.
- Develop, operate, improve, maintain, and protect our Products.
- Personalize our Products by showing you relevant content, connecting you to users, clubs, rooms, and other content we think you might like, and to help you and your friends connect with one another on Keedoo.
- Send you communications. For example, we may use email, text messages, or app-based notifications to respond to support inquiries, share information about our Products, and tell you what’s happening on Keedoo.
- Monitor and enhance the safety and security of our Products.
- Monitor and analyze user engagement, trends, and usage.
- Assess the efficiency of our advertising campaigns on other platforms.
- Handle and record user rights requests, including opt-ins and opt-outs.
- Prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity.
- Enforce, investigate, and report conduct violating our Terms of Service or other policies.
- Respond to requests from law enforcement agencies or other government agencies, and comply with legal or regulatory requirements.
We do not sell personal information about our users. We may, however, disclose that information to:
Other online services you connect to your Keedoo account
If you choose to link your Keedoo account to Twitter, Instagram, or any other services, we may disclose information to those other services at your direction when using our Products.
Services we use to market Keedoo
When we market our Products we may disclose information to the websites and apps we use to market our Products, including Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, or others.
Service providers and other third parties
Law enforcement or governmental or non-governmental organizations
If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights or property of the public, any person or Keedoo; or to detect, prevent or otherwise address illegal conduct, fraud, security or technical issues, we may disclose information to law enforcement agencies, other governmental agencies, or private parties as needed.
Our wholly owned subsidiaries and affiliates
If we were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy, we would disclose your information to a party involved in such a process (for example, a purchaser).
We keep your personal information only for as long as we reasonably need it to provide our Products to you and fulfill the purposes described in this Policy. This is also the case for anyone that we disclose your personal information to and who carries out services on our behalf. In general, this means we will retain your personal information for as long as you have a Keedoo account. We may delete some personal information earlier based on changes to your account settings, such as if you instruct us to delete your contacts. When we no longer need to use your personal information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll remove any information that can identify you from our systems.
As explained above, we record conversations in all chats to monitor for violations of our Terms of Service, or for otherwise illegal or illicit activity. If a user or our automated systems flag potential violations, we will retain the recording as long as reasonably necessary to investigate the potential violation. Otherwise, we delete the recording shortly after the chat ends.
There are a variety of ways you can manage the personal information we have about you. Specifically, you can:
- Request access to the information we collect and hold about you. We'll aim to provide this to you within 30 days after you submit your request.
- Have your information corrected or deleted. You can update your information on your profile or delete your data by closing your account.
- Delete your contacts. If you chose to sync your contacts, you can always change your mind by disabling contact sync in your account settings page.
- Opt out of push notifications. If you opt in to receive push notifications within the Products, we may send push notifications or alerts to your mobile device from time to time. You can deactivate push notifications and alerts at any time by changing your device settings, changing the push notification settings within the Products, or deleting the Keedoo app from your iOS or Android device.
- Revoke consent you have given or object to us processing your information. You can revoke any consent you have given us by adjusting your settings, or object to processing personal information in certain circumstances.

When we collect and process personal information, and while we retain this information, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.
Although we will do our best to protect the personal information you provide to us, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, and no one can guarantee absolute data security.
You are responsible for selecting any password and its overall security strength, ensuring the security of your own information within the bounds of our services. For example, ensuring any passwords associated with accessing your personal information and accounts are secure and confidential.
While our Products are offered worldwide, we are based in the United States and rely on cloud storage providers that store user data on our behalf in the United States. When you use our Products, your personal information may be transferred and stored outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this Policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those of your home country.
If we or our assets are acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, we would include data, including your personal information, among the assets transferred to any parties who acquire us. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any parties who acquire us may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, continue to use your personal information according to this policy, which they will be required to assume as it is the basis for any ownership or use rights we have over such information.
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we do, we’ll post any changes on this page. We will provide a more prominent notice or get your consent where required by law.
Our app may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and policies of those sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy practices.

Where the disclosure of your personal information is solely subject to Australian privacy laws, you acknowledge that some third parties may not be regulated by the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act. You acknowledge that if any such third party engages in any act or practice that contravenes the Australian Privacy Principles, it would not be accountable under the Privacy Act, and you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act.
The GDPR distinguishes between organizations that process personal information for their own purposes (known as “data controllers”) and organizations that process personal information on behalf of other organizations (known as “data processors”). We, Waysgo Corp., located at the address provided in our Contact Us section, are a Data Controller and/or Processor with respect to the personal information you provide to us.
We will only collect and use your personal information when we have a legal right to do so. In which case, we will collect and use your personal information lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner. If we seek your consent to process your personal information, and you are under 16 years of age, we will seek your parent or legal guardian’s consent to process your personal information for that specific purpose.
Our lawful bases depend on the services you use and how you use them. This means we only collect and use your information on the following grounds:
Where you have entered into a contract or transaction with us, or in order to take preparatory steps prior to our entering into a contract or transaction with you. For example, we need technical information about your device in order to provide the essential features of our app.
Where we assess it is necessary for our legitimate interests, such as for us to provide, operate, improve and communicate our services. For example, we collect technical information about your device in order to improve and personalize your experience of our app. We consider our legitimate interests to include research and development, understanding our audience, marketing and promoting our services, measures taken to operate our services efficiently, marketing analysis, and measures taken to protect our legal rights and interests.
We will ensure that any transfer of personal information from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA will be protected by appropriate safeguards, for example by using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission, or the use of binding corporate rules or other legally accepted means.
Restrict: You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information if (i) you are concerned about the accuracy of your personal information; (ii) you believe your personal information has been unlawfully processed; (iii) you need us to maintain the personal information solely for the purpose of a legal claim; or (iv) we are in the process of considering your objection in relation to processing on the basis of legitimate interests.
Objecting to processing: You have the right to object to processing of your personal information that is based on our legitimate interests or public interest. If this is done, we must provide compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which overrides your interests, rights, and freedoms, in order to proceed with the processing of your personal information.
Data portability: You may have the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you. Where possible, we will provide this information in CSV format or other easily readable machine format. You may also have the right to request that we transfer this personal information to a third party.
Deletion: You may have a right to request that we delete the personal information we hold about you at any time, and we will take reasonable steps to delete your personal information from our current records. If you ask us to delete your personal information, we will let you know how the deletion affects your use of our app, website or products and services. There may be exceptions to this right for specific legal reasons which, if applicable, we will set out for you in response to your request. If you terminate or delete your account, we will delete your personal information within 180 days of the deletion of your account. Please be aware that search engines and similar third parties may still retain copies of your personal information that has been made public at least once, like certain profile information and public comments, even after you have deleted the information from our services or deactivated your account.

Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

If you’re not a Keedoo user (a “Non-User” or “you”), Keedoo may process your phone number if a Keedoo user has your phone number saved in the contact list stored in their device and chooses to share those contacts with Keedoo, or invites you to join Keedoo by typing in your phone number. This Notice provides information about our use of Non-User data to data subjects in the EU and the UK.
What information about Non-Users does Keedoo store?
Either way, Keedoo does not store your phone number in a readable format. Instead we generate a cryptographic hash value derived from your phone number, and update this information from time to time. We store the hash value in a list linked to the Keedoo user who chose to sync contacts. Keedoo does not collect names or any other information from a user’s contacts.
What does Keedoo do with Non-Users’ Information?
We use the hash values derived from phone numbers to help users connect with one another on Keedoo (now or later), suggest people to invite, and send invitations to join Keedoo. If you join Keedoo, we will use the hash value derived from your phone number to help other Keedoo users connect with you on Keedoo.
Does Keedoo Disclose Non-User information to third parties?
Keedoo does not disclose Non-User information to anyone other than our third-party service providers.
What is Keedoo’s legal basis for processing this information?
We also rely on our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of our users and non-users. More specifically, we rely on our legitimate interests in personalizing the Keedoo Products by connecting users with people they may know on Keedoo. We rely on the interests of our users in more efficiently connecting with people they may know on Keedoo, and their interest in inviting others to join Keedoo to form an even more robust community. We also rely on the interests of Non-Users in finding people they may know on Keedoo upon joining.
How long does Keedoo retain Non-User information?
When we collect Non-Users’ phone numbers, we don’t store them. We process them for no more than a few seconds to create cryptographic hash values derived from the phone numbers. The cryptographic hash values are stored in a list on Keedoo servers linked to the Keedoo users who uploaded the phone numbers from which the hash values were derived. We keep this list of hash values for as long as the user instructs us to sync her contacts.
If a user chooses to send an invitation to you by using the invitation feature and entering your phone number, we keep the hash value derived from your phone number for 14 days.
How do Non-Users exercise their data subject rights?
Storage and transfer of Non-User Data
We are based in the United States and rely on cloud storage providers that store user data on our behalf in the United States. The United States may have data protection laws less stringent than or otherwise different from the laws in effect in Europe. We may also use service providers located outside of the EU or the UK. If we transfer your personal data out of the EU or the UK, we take measures to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal data, and your rights as a data subject.
- We may transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data. For further information, you can review EU adequacy decisions here, and you can review UK adequacy decisions here.
If we transfer your personal data to a country that is not deemed to provide an adequate level of data protection, in order to protect your personal data we may use contractual clauses approved for use in the EU and/or UK in accordance with the EU and/or UK data protection regime(s).
Waysgo Corp. (trading as Keedoo) is responsible for Non-User data. This means we are the controller of Non-User data under the GDPR.
