Information You Share With Us
We require certain information to provide our services to you. For example, you must have an account in order to share content on Showme. When you choose to share the information below with us, we collect and use it to operate our services.
We believe you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it,
and that you should have meaningful control over both. We want to empower you to
make the best decisions about the information that you share with us.
Basic Account Information: You have to create an account to use our service feature, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On this includes a username, a password, and an email address. Your username is always public, but you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You can also create and manage multiple Showme accounts, for example to express different parts of your identity.
Public Information: Most activity on Showme is public, including your profile information, when you created your account, and certain information about your Broadcasts like the date and time and your location. You should publish your location in your broadcast that’s the way to find you. The lists you create, people you follow and who follow you. So are your hearts, comments, the number of hearts you’ve received, and whether you watched a broadcast live or on replay. Any hearts, comments, or other content you contribute to another account’s broadcast will remain part of that broadcast for as long as it remains on Showme. Information posted about you by other people who use our services may also be public.
You are responsible for your Broadcasts and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information. If you update your public information on Showme, such as by deleting a Tweet or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on Showme app for iOS.
Contact Information and Address Books: We use your contact information, such as your email address, to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. We also use contact information to personalize our services, enable certain account features (for example, for login verification), and to send you information about our services. You can use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from Showme. You can also unsubscribe from a notification on Showme Settings section.
You can sign up for Showme with an account from another service like, Google, or Facebook, or connect your Showme account to these other services.

When you communicate with others by private broadcasts, we will store and process your communications and information related to them. We also use information about whom you have communicated with and when (but not the content of those communications) to better understand the use of our services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform, and to show more relevant content.
