Privacy Policy

Effective: September 1st, 2023

Technologies Ndeuchi Bouesse is a technology company. Our products and services — including Storygeny, advertising, commerce, and others that link to this Privacy Policy — provide simple and fun way to express yourself and have fun together! 

When you use these services, you’ll share some information with us. So, we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, how it’s shared, and the controls you have.

Information We Collect

There are three basic categories of information we collect:

  • Information you provide.

  • Information we get when you use our services.

  • Information we get from third parties.

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

Information You Provide

When you interact with our services, we collect information that you provide to us. For example, many of our services require you to set up an account, so we’ll need to collect a few important details about you, such as your name, username, password, email address, phone number, and date of birth. We may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as a profile picture.

Of course, you’ll also provide us with whatever information you send through our services, such as Story and Chats, conversations with Genius Text AI or Genius Image AI, Public Profile information and more. Keep in mind that the users who view your Stories, Chats, and any other content can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to our services as well: don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

When you contact Support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer or that we need to resolve your question.

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. We might know, for instance, that you watched a particular Story, mainly created stories with fun topic, saw a specific ad for a certain period of time. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. For example, we may collect information about:

  • how you interact with our services, such as which Topics you use while creating stories, which Stories you watch, your interactions with Genius Text and Genius Image AI, or which search queries you submit.

  • how you communicate with other Storygenies, such as their names, the time and date of your communications, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a message or we detect that you capture a screenshot).

  • Content Information. When you use our services, you may engage with the camera or AI creative tools and create and share various types of content including Stories and more. We collect information about content you create or provide on our services, and your engagement with the camera and creative tools. For certain content, this may include information based on the content of the image, video, and audio. For example, if you post a Story about broken love, we may show you other Stories about love. We may also collect other information about the content, including metadata — which is information about the content itself like the date and time it was posted and who viewed it.

  • Device Information. We collect information from and about the devices you use. For example, we may collect:

  • information about your hardware and software, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, advertising identifiers, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, device usage data, browser type, keyboards installed, language, battery level, and time zone;

  • information from device sensors, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, compasses, microphones, and whether you have headphones connected; and

  • information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, IP address, and signal strength.

  • Device Phonebook. Because our services are all about communicating with friends, we may — with your permission — collect information from your device’s phonebook, such as your contacts and related information.

  • Camera, Photos, and Audio. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera, photos, and microphone. For example, you won’t be able to send Stories or upload photos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.

Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. Like most online services and mobile applications, we may use cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, web storage, and unique advertising identifiers, to collect information about your activity, browser, and device. We may also use these technologies to collect information when you interact with services we offer through one of our partners, such as advertising and commerce features. For example, we may use information collected on other websites to show you more relevant ads. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually remove or reject browser cookies through the settings on your browser or device. Keep in mind, though, that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our services. To learn more about how we and our partners use cookies on our services and your choices, please check out our Tracking Tools, Advertising and Opt-Out section.

  • Log Information. We may also collect log information when you use our website, such as:

  • details about how you’ve used our services;

  • device information, such as your web browser type and language;

  • access times;

  • pages viewed;

  • IP address;

  • identifiers associated with cookies or other technologies that may uniquely identify your device or browser; and

  • pages you visited before or after navigating to our website.

  • Other information, with your permission. There may be instances when you interact with our services that we will ask your permission to collect additional information. For example, if you contact our support service or live in a jurisdiction where certain data is considered sensitive we will ask your permission and give you a heads up on what data, including sensitive data, if any, we’re collecting.

How We Share Information

Why do we share the information we collect? Most of the time, it’s because you ask us to. Sometimes we share it because we need to. Here are the ways we may share information about you:

  • With other Storygenies. We may share the following information with other Storygenies:

  • information about you, such as your username, name, email  and phone number.

For example, because it may not be clear whether a new friend request comes from someone you actually know, we may share whether you and the requestor have Storygeny friends in common.

  • information about your device, such as the operating system and device type, to help you receive Chats, Stories, and other content in the optimal viewing format.

  • any additional information you have directed us to share. For example, Storygeny will share your information when you connect your Storygeny account to a third-party app, and if you share information or content from Storygeny to the third-party app.

  • content you post or send. How widely your content is shared depends on your personal settings. For example, a Story may be made available to just a single friend you select, but your Story may be seen by any Storygenies you allow to see your Story.

  • With all Storygenies, our business partners, and the general public. We may share the following information with all Storygenies as well as with our business partners and the general public:

  • public information like your name, username, profile pictures and Public Profile.

  • We may share information about you with service providers who perform services on our behalf, including to facilitate payments and measure and optimize the performance of ads and deliver more relevant ads, including on third-party websites and apps.

  • investigate, remedy, or enforce potential Terms of Service and Community Guidelines violations.

  • protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or others.

  • detect and resolve any fraud or security concerns.

Information about Interest-Based Advertisements:

We may serve advertisements, and also allow third-party ad networks, including third-party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms, to serve advertisements. These advertisements may be targeted to users who fit certain general profile categories or display certain preferences or behaviors (“Interest-Based Ads”). Information for Interest-Based Ads (including Personal Data) may be provided to us by you, or derived from the usage patterns of particular users on the Services and/or services of third parties. Such information may be gathered through tracking users’ activities across time and unaffiliated properties, including when you leave the Services. To accomplish this, we or our service providers may deliver Cookies, including a file (known as a “web beacon”) from an ad network to you through the Services. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Web beacons allow ad networks to view, edit or set their own Cookies on your browser, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

We comply with the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising. Through the DAA and Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”), several media and marketing associations have developed an industry self-regulatory program to give consumers a better understanding of, and greater control over, ads that are customized based a consumer’s online behavior across different websites and properties. To make choices about Interest-Based Ads from participating third parties, including to opt-out of receiving behaviorally targeted advertisements from participating organizations, please visit the DAA’s or NAI’s consumer opt-out pages, which are located at or Users in the European Union should visit the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance’s user information website
