In this Policy, we aim to explain our privacy practices in plain language, keeping legal and technical jargon to a minimum.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Sep 27, 2021


This Privacy Policy applies to websites, apps, events and other services operated by Hi.buddy. For convenience, we refer to all of these as “our services” in this Privacy Policy. To make it clearer, we have included links to this Privacy Policy across all applicable services.

Some services may require their own unique privacy policies. If a particular service has its own privacy policy, then that policy applies, not this Privacy Policy.


Without some information about you, such as basic profile details and the types of people you want to meet, we can’t help you develop meaningful connections. We also collect information generated when you use our services, such as access logs and information from third parties, such as when you access our services through a social media account. If you want additional information, we go into more details below.

Information you give us

When using our services, you choose to provide us with certain information. This includes:

When you create an account, you provide us with at least your login and some basic information, such as your first and last name, which is necessary for the service to work.

When you choose to participate in our promotions, events or contests, we collect the information you use to register or enter.

When you complete your profile, you can share with us additional information, such as details on your personality, lifestyle, interests and other details about you, as well as content such as photos and videos. To add certain content, like pictures you may allow us to access your camera or photo album. By choosing to provide this information, you consent to our processing of that information.

If you contact our customer service team, we collect the information you provide to us during the interaction. Sometimes we monitor or record these interactions for educational purposes and to ensure high quality of service.

If you ask us to contact other people or otherwise process their information (for example, if you ask us to send one of your friends an email on your behalf), we collect information about other people you provide to us to complete your request.

Of course, we process your chats with other users as well as the content you post as part of the operation of the services.

Information we receive from others

In addition to the information you provide directly to us, we receive information about you from others, including:

Other Users. Other users may provide information about you while using our services. For example, we may collect information about you from other users if they contact us about you.

Social media. You can use your social media login (such as Facebook Login) to create and log in to your Hi.buddy account. This saves you from having to remember another username and password and allows you to share some information from your social media account with us.

Other Partners. We may receive information about you from our partners, for example where Hi.buddy ads are posted on a partner’s websites and platforms (in which case they may pass on details about the success of a campaign).

Information collected when you use our services

When you use our services, we collect information about what features you use, how you use them, and the devices you use to access our services. See below for more details:

If you let us, we may collect your precise geographic location (latitude and longitude) in a variety of ways, including GPS, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi connections, depending on the service and device you are using. If your consent to us expressly allows for such collection, the collection of your geolocation may occur in the background, even when you are not using the services. If you do not allow us to obtain your geolocation, we will not collect it.

If you do not share your location information with us, you will not be able to use the application.

Similarly, we may collect your photos and videos if you consent (for example, if you wish to post a photo, video, or stream on the services).
