This section aims to explain the life cycle of your data:
The way we use the information you provide us & the information we collect through your use of the app
- The transfer of your data to third parties
- Your rights to access, correct or delete your data
Bim reveals everyday the most beautiful photos and videos lost in your smartphone. Protecting your privacy is part of Bim's DNA, especially when it comes to your photos and personal information. That's why we are committed to never getting your media out of your smartphone unless you want to share it with your loved ones.
Our approach is called "privacy by design". This means that when new features are created, we look for solutions not to compromise your data. For example, we make intelligent treatments on your photos. To respect your privacy, we embed our algorithms and artificial intelligence models on your phone in order to avoid that your data goes through our servers.
Information collected by Bim 👌
The ones you provide us 🙌
All our users can decide to create an account or not.
By creating an account with us, you share with us your phone number to validate your account, a username and a profile picture. The aim is to provide you a better experience with your friends inside the application.
The ones we get through your use of the app 👩💻
After downloading Bim, we collect information about your smartphone, for example its model, operating system or type of connection to offer you the most appropriate experience. We also collect information about your use of the app as the number of memories you open, share and/or delete.
Use of the information we collect 🌈
The purpose of collecting information about you is to improve your Bim experience. We can, use this information to:

- If we sell or reorganize all or any parts of our business, we may disclose user' information to a third party who acquires all or some parts of our assets, to the extent permitted by law.
- For vendors, consultants, and other providers we believe useful to help improve the service (such as customer support, email or SMS marketing, and technical infrastructure services).
