Welcome to Elaxer’s blog on protecting the privacy and security of our users., where we prioritize the safety, security, and privacy of our community above all else. At Elaxer, we believe that it’s our responsibility to help our users protect their wellbeing and personal information while using our products. Here are some key points to understand how we ensure your safety and privacy while using Elaxer.
Privacy by Design
Elaxer is designed differently from traditional social media platforms, and our purpose is to create a healthy, safe, and fun environment for users to connect. We understand that your privacy is essential, so we collect less data from our users, such as location data, which stays on our servers for only three days before being automatically deleted.
We offer location-sharing options to our users but with the utmost care. We use location data solely for creating connections among users without ever showing or sharing your location data with anyone.
We have a strict policy of prohibiting bullying, hate speech, spam, and misinformation that can cause harm. We have a dedicated Trust and Safety team to investigate and take action on any content or user that concerns or worries our community. We offer fast and easy ways for users to report content or users that violate our policies using in-app forms.
In addition, we have a dedicated AI-based and manual user ratings system to effectively design and enforce our guidelines. If attempts are made to violate our policies, we remove the content and ensure that the user responsible is held accountable if it cause any kind of damage to anyone.
Safety of Minors
Elaxer is a community designed for users aged 13+, and we are serious about the safety and privacy of minors. We have additional strictness ratings for minors to ensure that our platform is not misused. We report any content or actions that involve the safety of minors to law enforcement agencies.
Advanced Security Measures
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access to your data. For example, we use end-to-end encryption technology to protect certain sensitive information, such as location data, that you provide to us.
We also offer the option to show only verified users on your real-time nearby screen, giving you peace of mind when connecting with nearby users. You can also turn off the real-time nearby function if you prefer not to use it.
Verification and Blocking Features
To ensure that our community is safe and secure, every user must pass mobile number verification. With the help of AI, we block spam/fake users from uploading obscene images as their profile picture or media. We also have a profile and location verification feature that we review with AI and real human interventions to create a safe environment for our users.
You can choose who can text you or send you a friend request, unlike other platforms where anyone can message you without your consent. Even if we missed anything, we have a block/report feature that helps you avoid unwanted interactions with other users.
Elaxer exclusively uses your location data to connect you with people around you based on our application’s model and service. We send the physical location of your device to our servers, which helps other users see you around. Your location data is not stored on our servers for more than three days and will never be shared with any third party without your permission.
Elaxer allows you to submit user-generated content to the application. By submitting content, you can choose which circle of users can see your content. When commenting in public, users can choose to go with their user ID and the public profile photo.
In addition to the privacy features mentioned above, there are many other privacy and setting options you can set according to your needs in app settings.
