Privacy Policy For Phone Dialer & Caller ID App

Privacy Policy

Mereb Apps built the Phone Dialer & Caller ID app as an Ad Supported app. This SERVICE is provided by Mereb Apps at no cost and is intended for use as is.

This page is used to inform visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service.

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy. The Personal Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

The terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, which are accessible at Phone Dialer & Caller Id unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy.

Whose personal information do we process?

We may process personal information relating to you if:

  • You use our products or services, especially our App.
  • Your personal information has been provided to us by one of our users. This means that our user granted us access to data stored or otherwise available on or through his/her/their device that includes your personal information, for example data from  contacts.  When you call one of our users or are called by one of our users, we process your personal information in relation to providing our Apps to our users.
  • Your personal information has been provided to us by third party sources, including affiliated entities, surveys or questionnaires, marketing companies, data licensors, public records. In such cases, we rely on the guarantees given by these third parties that they have first obtained your consent to provide us with the information, or that there is some other lawful basis for giving us the information.

While using Our Application, in order to provide features of Our Application, We may collect, with Your prior permission:

  • Information from your Device's phone book (contacts list) such as phone number and name.

We use this information to provide features of Our Service, like to identify who is calling. The information may be uploaded to the our servers.

You can enable or disable access to this information at any time, through the app.

What do we do with your personal information?

We may process personal information as necessary to perform our contract with our users, especially to provide our Apps to you and other users, to assist our users in identifying potentially unwanted telephone calls and handling such calls, including the following:

  • To match the information in user phone logs and contacts with numbers from the calls the user makes or receives, as well as with information in our database. We also may store this information for subsequent data validation for both you and other users of our Apps and other products;
  • To send users push notifications. For example, if you missed a call and the number was not in your address book, but we knew the name of the caller, we may send you a notification;
  • If you contact us, we may process your personal data to communicate with you about your use of our Apps, to respond to your inquiries, and for other user services purposes;
  • To better understand how users access and use our Apps, both on an aggregated and individualized basis;
  • To improve our Apps, and for research and analytics purposes;
  • To administer our Apps, and other systems, including troubleshooting, and data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
  • To improve our Apps to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your device;
  • To keep our Apps and other systems safe and secure;

To be able to provide the core, acknowledged feature of our Apps, namely caller id and blocking, it is essential to collect certain call-related data not just about our users, but also about the party on the other end of the phone call:

  • firstly, because we collect the data automatically and in-real time, therefore it is simply technically not possible to only obtain data about users;
  • and secondly, to be able to protect our users from spam and fraudulent calls, we need to identify the party on the other end of the phone call as spam or not spam.

Also, we are dedicated to provide sufficient information on our data processing in this Policy and ensure adequate and easy access to data subject rights not just for our users but for anyone, whose personal data we collect.

Who do we disclose your personal information to?

  • User of the Apps and Our Other Products. Because your information may be used for validation of information in our database, we may disclose your personal information to users of the Apps and of our other products and services that rely on our database of information. For example: If you provide us with your name and you call another of our users, then we may show your name to the other user to know who is calling.
  • With Service Providers: We may share Your personal information with Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service, to contact You.
  • For business transfers: We may share or transfer Your personal information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of Company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of Our business to another company.
  • With Affiliates: We may share Your information with Our affiliates, in which case we will require those affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy. Affiliates include Our parent company and any other subsidiaries, joint venture partners or other companies that We control or that are under common control with Us.
  • With business partners: We may share Your information with Our business partners to offer You certain products, services or promotions.
