We collect information you provide (such as your name and picture) and information about your device and use of Message+. This includes your mobile telephone number, device identifiers, device type and operating system, your contacts, and information about the Message+ features you use and your interactions with them. We use this information to deliver, analyze, maintain and support Message+ services; enhance application features; customize and personalize your experiences; and provide social network interactions.
When you report a problem with the app, we collect your email address, any pictures you choose to send and detail about the problem including device conditions, current view and duration. We use the information to communicate with you and to fix the problem.
We may combine data collected through your use of Message+ services with data from other Verizon affiliates, including Verizon Media, and with data we obtain from third-parties to help make advertising you see more relevant on the devices you use.
Based on your permission, Message+ determines or infers your device’s precise location by collecting information from your devices’ cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS location and sensors (gyroscope, accelerometer, light, magnetometer and pressure). We may collect this location information even when Message+ is not in use. We use this information and allow Verizon Media to use it as well to make ads you see more interesting to you on devices you use and to enhance other location-based services and experiences we provide.
Message+ uses automatic key word identification to help you with reply and action suggestions as well as to provide you with the ability to create reminders directly from text messages. We collect non-identifiable information (for example, counts of the number of times features are used) about these features, but do not copy or save text content.
