Even when we do not retain such information, it still must be transmitted to our servers initially and stored long enough to process.
Please also note:

We may publicly display your first name and last initial, as well as any photo or other content you submit through the registration process, as part of your account profile. You can modify some of the information associated with your account through your account settings within FYXO Inc. app. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account depicting you or your likeness, you can request its removal by flagging it.
  • Public Content
    Your contributions to the Service are intended for public consumption and are therefore viewable by the public, including your photos, ratings, reviews, lists, Collections, and edits to business listing information. Your account profile (e.g., first name, last initial, city, neighborhood, month and year joined, profile photos and business details) is also intended for public consumption, and which businesses you bookmark. You can limit the public nature of some of these activities through your account settings.
  • Contacts
    You can invite others to join or become users on FYXO Inc. by providing us with their contact information, or by allowing us to access your contacts from your computer, mobile device, or third party sites to select which individuals you want to invite.

    When you sign up for an account or use certain features, you are opting to receive messages from other users, businesses, and FYXO Inc.. We may send you messages about your activity using the contact information you provide, including through automated SMS text messages to your phone number. We may also track your actions in response to the messages you receive from us or through the Service, such as whether you deleted, opened, or forwarded such messages. If you exchange messages with others through the Service, we may store them in order to process and deliver them, allow you to manage them, and we may review and disclose them in connection with investigations related to use of the Service, as well as our efforts to improve the Service. We may not deliver messages that we believe are objectionable, such as spam messages, fraudulent solicitations, or requests to exchange reviews for compensation. If you send or receive messages through the Service via SMS text message, we may log phone numbers, phone carriers, and the date and time that the messages were processed. Carriers may charge recipients for texts that they receive. We may also store information that you provide through communications to us, including from phone calls, letters, emails and other electronic messages, or in person.

This information may be shared with third parties, and third parties may share such information with us, for the same purposes. When you submit credit card numbers, we encrypt that information using industry standard technology.
