If you use the International mode you can see people from all over the world but you cannot see their location. When using the International mode your location will be visible on Google Maps.

2. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

Since the Zoom In Application's main goal is to help its users to find real people, the information you provide must be public to other users to gain trust. For instance, your precise location proves to other users that you are real and within the specific distance of ~500 km / ~311 miles. The International mode allows you to look for people in other places. This feature becomes useful when you don't find people on Google Maps. We may collect user information in order to provide our Services. The information may help us to develop and improve the product better as well as protecting the product and Services. Some of the most important information collection use cases are as follows:

Once you have asked us to close your account and delete your profile information, we will delete all information that we are not required or permitted to retain by law. Please keep in mind that, while our system is designed to carry out our deletion practices automatically, we cannot promise that deletion will occur flawlessly and our system will be able to completely delete all your data.

5. HOW TO CONTROL YOUR INFORMATION

Edit information

We want you to be in control of your information, therefore you are able to edit your information such as name, biography, age, gender, photo, status, social media profiles, height and interests.

Edit age

However, to use Zoom In you must be at least 18 years old. In case if you are not 18 years old and at the time of registration you have provided false information and later you decide to modify your age to your real age (under 18), you will not be able to do so. Such actions violate the Zoom In's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy and we will delete your account and information on the server immediately. If you are not at least 18 years old, you must delete your account and exit the application.

Control your location

Zoom In makes it possible to remove your location from Settings. When you do this, your location and photo will be removed on Google Maps and nobody can find you anymore. This feature can be useful when you are not looking for new friends or if you are at home and you do not want to show your precise location. We would highly recommend to remove your location whenever you are at home, at work or in specific places that you do not want to share with others. Once you decide to be active, you should turn this feature off in your Settings. Please keep in mind that Zoom In cannot promise that all features work flawlessly and removing your location is no exception. However, Zoom In always makes sure that essential features work properly.

Social media profiles

Zoom In allows you to share your social media profiles with other users. You're fully responsible to ensure that the profile that you share belongs to you and not someone else's. As of today, we do not have an authentication system to ensure that the profile you're sharing belongs to you, therefore, by sharing a social media profile you accept and consent that the profile belongs to you and people who are your friends in Zoom In can view your profiles in TikTok, Facebook or Instagram.

Revoke permissions

When you are using full functionalities of Zoom In it means that you have granted all the necessary permissions. You can simply revoke these permissions by changing them in your device settings. Certain Services may lose full functionality if you do that and the application may not behave accordingly.

If for some reason you ever want to delete your account you can do that in the application. Settings -> Delete your account -> enter password -> Delete account. You will have a few options to provide us some reasons of why you are deleting your account. This is totally optional. But if you decide to provide, it will give us a hint to improve the application.
