Privacy Policy

TLDR;

We use services from both Facebook (when actually interacting with the bot) and Google (when you are on our website) for Analytics. You can read below about the basic information these services collect. When you connect with BreachBot on Facebook, we can see your Profile Name, but we do not collect any other information from your profile - we can't see your email address, your friends, or anything else of that sort. During the Equifax Breach flow, BreachBot will ask you what state you live in, if you choose to answer him, we collect this attribute so we can get a better idea of the general audience that is using BreachBot. We link to some external services and websites while you're using to BreachBot and we have no control over what data they collect or how. We also use Drift which allows you to chat with us directly from this website - it collects some basic analytic information and those live chat conversations are logged.

If you text BreachBot via SMS, we're using Twilio, which does collect your phone number in the logs. We dump our logs weekly.

We're learning some basic things about your like your estimated age group and what state you live in. We don't sell any of this data, we just use it to improve BreachBot and find out target audiences. Below is a super generic privacy policy that outlines some basics.
