Privacy Policy

Last modified: 8 April 2017

Twiza is a simple way to write with people around the world. You can write short stories, poetry, quotes, jokes or anything on any topic. All you need to do is write few words and publish, then someone from across the world will complete your story. Once story completed you can share nicely crafted story with friends.

When you use these services – and any others Twiza roll out, whether in the Twiza app or elsewhere – you’ll share some information with us. We appreciate that this can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, with whom we share it, and the choices we give you to control, access and update your information.

That’s why we’ve written this Privacy Policy. And it’s why we’ve tried to write it in a way that’s blissfully free of the legalese that often clouds these documents. Of course, if you still have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

Information we collect

There are 3 basic categories of information we collect:

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information you choose to give us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a Twiza account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: an email address and a password. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name or other useful identifying information.

Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you share on the services, such as story lines or story background images. Keep in mind that all the content that you see on app can be save on app or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to Twiza as well: don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: when you contact Twiza Support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer.

Information we get when you use our services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

We may also store some information locally on your device. For example, we may store story background images as local cache so that you can open the app and view content faster.

Control over your information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we’ll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website and mobile application. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites’ home pages or providing you with an in-app notification).
