Your privacy in the social networking features
What information is stored on your device?
The social networking features allow you to share the contents you generated to SNS as well as retrieving the social contents from SNS. For example, your contacts in various SNS will be visible on your device in a view that displays among other things their profile picture, status updates, contact information and latest activities. You may also send updates and otherwise interact with your social networks by using your device.
The combination of your contacts and their activities takes place on your device. The combined aggregated view is only available on your device. Nokia does not store the linked information, your SNS profile, friend lists, your friends’ contact information or such SNS profile related information unless otherwise described below or you have agreed to such processing in connection with a different service. You control the information you store on your device.
What information is processed by the SNS?
What information is processed by Nokia?
Nokia account may be required for using the social networking features depending on the device model.
Although the content of your interactions with your SNS, for example status updates, is sent through Nokia’s servers, Nokia does not process such information for any purpose other than to facilitate the effective exchange of such content.
Nokia does not store your passwords that you use for your SNS. Instead, a unique authentication token is used to authenticate you as the right SNS user. This access token together with your user identifier and username from the SNS are stored on Nokia server. They are used for the interaction with SNS and also help your login on a new device.
In some cases, a unique identifier is assigned to your contacts. The identifier is stored in Nokia’s servers. No other information of your contacts is stored by Nokia. The identifier is associated with your Nokia account to connect you with the right contacts. The identifier is deleted when your contact either terminates their SNS account or their friendship with you in the SNS.
