The choices available to you will depend on your age.

Information We Collect About You

We collect your name, email address, date of birth, location, and gender when you register as a user of WE Day app. This information is required to complete registration. Some of this information (for example, your name and user ID) will be treated as information you have made public and it is available to users on and off the WE Day app platform. The remaining information on your profile such as your location and contact information is information you can choose to share publicly or not on your WE Day app profile (you can make your choices in the privacy settings of your account).
Your date of birth is a critical piece of information. It allows us to verify whether you are able to use the WE Day app services. You must be thirteen (13) years of age or older to use WE Day app.
We collect other personal information from you through your use of the WE Day app platform.

We also collect information about you from other users, such as when you appear in photos or videos posted on WE Day app, are tagged in locations or photos, added to groups or mentioned in status updates or in other posts by users of WE Day app. As this is information about you that is shared by someone else, it may be stored or shared by that individual as it is their content to use. Content you post may also provide us with personal information, such as where you are and what types of actions you are taking.
Sometimes we get data from our affiliates, our partners, customers and other third parties that helps us (or them) understand online activity, and generally make WE Day app better.
