While using the Aber app, you allow us to have some information about you. Because information is very private, we are upfront with the information we receive, other users receive, how we use that information, who we are sharing it with, and the choices we give you to limit that information.
Information We Collect
There are three categories of information we collect:
- Information you choose to give us.
- Information we get when you use our services.
- Information we get from third parties.
Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.
Information You Choose to Give Us
When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Snapchat account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go by, a password, and an email address. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information.
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as the questions you ask with your name showing and not anonymously asked or responded.
Information We Get When You Use Our Services
When you use our services, we collect information about where you are. This includes your location. Your location is mandatory to use the Aber app, because the second timeline contains the timeline of questions of those around you. You are however able to set the miles in the settings section, which limits your whereabouts. The kind of information we get when you’re using the application, are:
- Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services.
- Content Information. We collect information about the content you provide, such as the questions you post, the answers you post, the answers you like or the country you choose to see in your first timeline.
- Language Information. We collect device-specific information, so we can set your language automatically to what your device is set.
- Camera and Photos. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera and photos. For example, you won’t be able to post questions with photos or videos, or upload photos and videos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or camera roll.
- Location Information. When you use our services we have to collect information about your location. While using the application we are collecting information about your precise location with GPS.
- Microphone information. By using the ability to record your audio questions, you allow the Aber app to use your microphone.
- Notifications information. When allowing Aber to send out notifications, we collect the information about the notifications we send you.
- Storage information. The Aber app uses your phone device to store information of the application itself.
- Log Information. We also collect log information when you use our application. That information includes, among other things:
- details about how you’ve used our services.
- device information, such as your language.
- access times.
- pages viewed.
- IP address.

The only information we collect from third parties are the valid email address you use and/or your Facebook signup. While signing up on Aber using Facebook, you allow us to take some information of your Facebook page, such as: your name and profile picture.

How Long We Keep Your Content
The content you post will be kept by us, until you delete these content or when you delete your profile permanently.
Control over Your Information
We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.
- Change information: You are able to change information on your profile page. This includes: your name, profile picture, email address, settings, bio and the country you want to see the questions of.
- Account Deletion. While we hope you’ll remain a lifelong Aber user, if for some reason you ever want to delete your account, you are able to do see in your settings. We made a very simple and accessible way to delete your profile. You do not have to log in on our website or use a different device than your phone to delete your profile, like many social media platforms acquire.

- Advertising Preferences. We try to show you ads that we think will be relevant to your interests.
Our slogan reads: Ask Anything, Anywhere, Anytime, Anonymously. The Aber app is mainly based on the last word: Anonymously. Our services provide you to have the opportunity to ask any question you want anonymously. Also the ability to respond any question anonymously. You can do this by choosing the option of ’anonymous’, while writing your question or answer. When you ask anything anonymous, the question or answer will be posted under the name of ’ABER USER’ and no other user, but you will know you wrote that question. Even our own web services are limited to the knowledge of knowing who posted it. By posting anonymous, you will however receive the notifications and also are able to see your own questions on your profile page. This means that if someone has access to your account information: email address and password, they will be able to view your anonymously asked questions and answers.
According to the terms and conditions, whenever our policy is violated and there are judicial reasons for giving information to authorities, we will deliver when necessary. This includes the privacy concerning the anonymous actions.
Our services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under 12. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 12.
