We want to make Writeet a transparent, safe and enjoyable place. We believe you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it. We also believe that you should have meaningful control about what data you allow us to take and if we can do it. This is our Privacy Policy.





Basic Account Information

You don’t have to create an account to use some of our service features, such as viewing public Writeet profiles or Writeet pages. If you do choose to create an account, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On Writeet this includes a display name, a username, a password, and an email address or phone number. Your display name and username are always public and you should use your own First Name and Last Name. You are not allow to create multiple accounts on Writeet.

Most activity on Writeet is public, including your profile information, your time zone and language, when you created your account, and your Wreets and certain information about your Wreets like the date, time, and application and version of Writeet you writed from. You also may choose to publish your location in your Wreets or your Writeet profile. The lists you create, people you follow and who follow you, and Wreets you Like or Reacted on or Share are also public. Also other engage with Writeet are public along with when you took those actions. So are your comments, the number of reactions you’ve received, which accounts you are a fan of, and whether you watched a broadcast live or on replay. Any likes, reactions, comments, or other content you contribute to another account’s broadcast will remain part of that broadcast for as long as it remains on Writeet. Information posted about you by other people who use our services may also be public. For example, other people may tag you in a photo (if your settings allow) or mention you in a Wreet.
You are responsible for your Wreets and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information. If you update your public information on Writeet, such as by deleting a Wreet or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on Writeet.com, Writeet for iOS, and Writeet for Android. In addition to providing your public information to the world directly on Writeet, we also use technology like application programming interfaces (APIs) and embeds to make that information available to websites, apps, and others for their use - for example, displaying Wreets on a news website or analyzing what people say on Writeet. We generally make this content available in limited quantities for free and charge licensing fees for large-scale access. We have standard terms that govern how this data can be used, and a compliance program to enforce these terms. But these individuals and companies are not affiliated with Writeet, and their offerings may not reflect updates you make on Writeet.

We use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. We also use contact information to personalize our services, enable certain account features (for example, for login verification or Writeet via SMS), and to send you information about our services. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages from Writeet to that number as your country’s laws allow. Writeet also uses your contact information to market to you as your country’s laws allow, and to help others find your account if your settings permit, including through third-party services and client applications.

You can also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or here.

If you email us, we will keep the content of your message, your email address, and your contact information to respond to your request.

Direct and Private Messages and Non Public Communication

We provide certain features that let you communicate more privately or control who sees your content. For example, you can use direct messages to have non-public conversations on Writeet, protect your Wreets, or host private broadcasts on Writeet. When you communicate with others by sending or receiving direct messages, we will store and process your communications and information related to them. This includes link scanning for malicious content, link shortening, detection of spam and prohibited images, and review of reported issues. We also use information about whom you have communicated with and when (but not the content of those communications) to better understand the use of our services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform, and to show more relevant content. We share the content of your direct messages with the people you’ve sent them to; we do not use them to serve you ads. Note that if you interact in a way that would ordinarily be public with Writeet content shared with you via direct message, for instance by liking a Wreet, those interactions will be public. When you use features like direct messages to communicate, remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on Writeet - even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account - which they may duplicate, store, or re-share.
