PØSSESSƏD is a game app. Our services are meant to be used to have fun
with and tease your friends with curses.
Information We Collect
There are two basic categories of information we collect:
Information you choose to give us.
Information we get when you use our services.
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 basic PØSSESSƏD account, so we need to collect a few
important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go
by, a password, an email address, and your date of birth. 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, your name, or other useful identifying information.
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through
the services, such as curses sent to your friends.
It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: When you
contact customer 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
