Your Privacy is our Policy
Small print sucks. Here are some of the key points you might be wondering about.
Fabriq is a personal, private app.
That means Fabriq is not a social network.
We will never share or sell your data to data brokers.
We do not contact the people you add to your circles in Fabriq, so no, they will not know that you added them to the app unless you tell them.
Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq provide a variety of services to streamline how you connect with the people you care about most. All of the information that you put into your Fabriq account is completely private and only for your personal use to strengthen your existing relationships. Because Fabriq is not a social network, you do not have a public profile and nobody has access to any hidden backdoors with which they could expose you and your bestie’s shared love of honey lavender lattes. Your secrets are safe with us.
To make inputting information into the app easier for you, we may ask to access your device’s contacts, photos, connected services, communication metadata, and/or appointment data. If you allow Fabriq access to any of these, we promise that it will not be shared with or sold to anyone or any other company, and we will not send notifications or communications to anyone in your contacts unless you tell us to.
If you’d like more details we encourage you to read our full policy below or get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com.
Threads by Fabriq is a hybrid social-media messenger, so the information you add to your profile such as your name and photo are visible to those you choose to connect with. The updates you create (which may or may not include photos and videos) are available only to the people with whom you explicitly choose to share.
When you grant access to your photos and videos, we only use the photos or videos you individually pick for things like your profile avatar, photos pr videos you add to your updates, or photos or videos you send in the messenger. None of your other photos or videos are uploaded to our servers.
When you grant access to your contacts we only use this permission to show your contacts back to you in the app so that you’re able to select individual contacts in later steps. When you select individual contacts to receive your update, their phone number is added to your account so that we can deliver your update to them via text. When you select individual contacts to invite to connect with you on Threads, their phone number is used to identify a pending connection of yours, so that when they ultimately sign up for Threads the two of you are already connected.
Only the contacts you individually select in either circumstance will ever be sent to our server, the rest never leave your phone.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we collect
We may collect your name, email address, and other personal information through our website, and you may also provide us information about your personal contacts, your relationship to them, and their contact information.
We may collect and store any personal information you enter on our website, or on a mobile applications, or provide to us in some other manner. This includes identifying information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). You may also provide us information about your interests and activities, your gender and age, and other demographic information such as your hometown or your username.
Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq provides a variety of Services that enable you to effectively manage contact information that you provide to us as part of those Services. Contacts typically contain information on individuals (or organizations) including names, email addresses, phone numbers, URLs, social handles, online identifiers, and physical addresses. Your Contacts may also contain additional information on individuals such as organizational affiliations, job titles, birthdays, key dates, age, gender, general location, relationships, skills, interests, preferences, notes, photos, tags, and other categorizations. Depending on which Services you elect to use, Contacts may be collected and stored in one or more of the following ways:
Connected Services. Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq Services may allow you to connect with external systems or databases that contain your Contacts. Examples include but are not limited to: 1) third-party contact management applications and services, 2) communication applications such as email providers, video conferencing systems, calendar applications, and social networks, and 3) sales, marketing, customer service, and media applications and platforms. Connections to such services generally require you to sign into those services.
User Interfaces. Many Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq Services allow you to directly enter, edit, or otherwise manage your Contacts by means such as typing into a user interface, importing from your device or speaking to a voice interface.
APIs. Contacts may also be collected when you submit Contacts through Fabriq’s API. This includes both APIs for directly managing contacts as well as APIs for lookup or search.
Third-Party Applications. Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq may enable you to manually or automatically transfer, upload, or copy-and-paste contact information from certain third-party applications into Fabriq.
Shared Contacts. Other Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq users may elect to share their Contacts or their personal contact details with you.
Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq provides a variety of Services that enable you to effectively manage your relationships. Depending on which Services you elect to use, relationship information may be collected and stored in one or more of the following ways:
Your Contacts. Your Contacts suggest a certain relationship between you and the people or organizations those Contacts represent. Your Contacts may explicitly indicate the nature of the relationship. We may also infer the strength or nature of a relationship based on the presence or absence of certain contact information such as mobile numbers or key dates, as well as shared elements such as physical addresses or organizational affiliations. Inferred relationship information may also be based on how you interact with individual Contacts such as how often you access or modify them.
Connected Services. Many Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq Services allow you to connect with external systems or databases that may contain information on your relationships, such as “connections” on social networks or other platforms.
Communication Metadata. Certain Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq Services may infer relationship information based on communication patterns. For example, any time communication is initiated within a Fabriq application, we may collect communication metadata including the individual contacted, the time, and the length or duration of the communication. We may similarly collect communication metadata from services you have elected to connect to Fabriq and/or Threads by Fabriq, such as email providers. In some cases, communication metadata may be collected directly from a device. We will not process the content of the communication unless you have explicitly asked us to do so (e.g., for purposes of contact extraction).
Notification Metadata. Certain Fabriq and Threads by Fabriq Services, like the “Communication Monitoring” feature available to Android users, require access to your Notification Center. We may collect information such as names of people you interact with and which 3rd-party apps (like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, etc.) those notifications originated from to identify possible connections and facilitate easier connection tracking.
While granting access to your Notifications on your device may allow more permissions, Fabriq only collects names and app names. We will not read, collect, or save any other content of these notifications or access any notification settings that you have set up.
If at any time you no longer wish for Fabriq to monitor your communications for recent connections this permission can be disabled in your native settings.
Appointment Data. If you have connected a calendar or scheduling service to Fabriq, we may collect information such as the appointment time, location, duration, and participants.

Accessing your information
