Since our Services are intended to help prevent unwanted spam, we try to limit our collection of information through the Services. We will collect information from you on the Services when you choose to share it with us. This may include when you request information from us, submit a spam report, or otherwise choose to contact us. If you decline to provide any of the requested or required information, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Services and their features.
For instance, when you choose to contact us, the information we collect may include your name, email address, phone number, company, or any other information that you choose to provide in the content of the message. You may also be required to submit certain information to report receipt of an unsolicited message, such as the type of spam you are receiving (email or text message), your mobile carrier or email service provider, the date and time of the message received, the telephone number or email address of the sender, and the content of the spam message. You may also authorize our mobile application to access your contacts in order to filter messages that you received from your contents and to distinguish those messages from spam messages. You may disable this access at any time.
