Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Data Use Policy to make important disclosures about how you can use the Chattr lounge and how we collect and can use your information. We encourage you to read the Data Use Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.

You own all of the information you disclose by choosing to speak aloud while as a Chattr participant, and you can control what is shared by choosing what you say. By speaking while participating in Chattr you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use your words. We will let you connect to people everywhere by recording all sound from Chattr participants, transcribing the things you say, and posting the text of what you have said online in permanent digital public spaces. By speaking in Chattr it means that you are allowing everyone, including people beyond Chattr, to access and use that information. We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Chattr, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

You may be wondering, “What is Chattr?” or “What do I need to know to help keep myself safe online?” Whether you’re tech-savvy or still having trouble using a mouse and keyboard, we’ve complied some tips for you. Chattr is a communications platform that brings you closer to the digital public space by recording the things you say and publishing them online. Remember that Chattr is an extended public space. Most of the communication taking place in the Chattr lounge is being made public online and viewable by everyone in the world. Since the conversations posted are public, some of this data may be made available or republished on other websites. Please keep in mind that conversations posted may be available in search or through third party sites. Ask questions about the things you might say while using Chattr like: Who are you sharing this information with? Can you trust all the people that will eventually see the information? How could your words be interpreted? Evaluate whether or not something is okay to say by remembering that if you wouldn’t say it to a person’s face, you shouldn’t say while using Chattr either. The nature of the Internet makes it difficult to completely erase content. What gets posted online can hurt feelings, affect offline relationships and even jeopardize future opportunities.

We may delete user data if we determine is inconsistent with our expectations. We will not attempt to correct mistakes in transcription. Our service displays content that is not Chattr’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the person who has said it. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do. We can issue a press release describing our relationship with your words. We do not guarantee that the Chattr lounge will be always free.

Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, or to correct an inaccurate statement, we will provide you with seven (7) days notice (for example, by posting the change here) and an opportunity to comment on changes to this Policy. You continued use of Chattr following changes to our terms constitutes your acceptance of our amended terms.

You can stop using our Service at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. Any transcripts that have already been published online will remain in the public domain indefinitely. If you violate the letter or spirit of this Policy, or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, we can stop providing all or port of the Chattr service to you. We will notify you immediately or at the next time you attempt to access the service.

Data Deletion Process

When handing the recording device back in, you can request that the recording be wiped and we will ensure this recording is not transcribed and all content on the recoding device is removed. You can request deletion up until we publish your transcript. If a recording has already been published, we can delete tweets that refer to it, however once the transcription itself has been uploaded online, it cannot be deleted.
