How can I learn more about the types of data displayed in the Apple App Privacy Details for Portal App?

This article applies to Portaland Portal TV

When you install an app from the App Store, you may see some information that Apple now asks all app developers to provide about how the app handles data. Apple offers a small range of specific options to choose from when describing an app’s data use and collection practices, and these options are not specific to you or the settings and controls you may have used in each of our apps.

As a reminder, Portal App is part of a group of different products that are provided by the Facebook company (including Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Portal) under Facebook's Data Policy. The information that you see reflects the data types and data uses across all the different apps falling under the Facebook Data Policy, and may not be specific to the particular app that you are using.

Facebook's own Data Policy is the most comprehensive source to understand how we collect, use and share your information across the Facebook Products so we recommend reviewing the policy for details and examples.

Below are a few examples of how these data types are used:

  • Contact Information. The information you provide when you sign up for an account allows you and others to connect, communicate and share content across our Products.
  • Health and Fitness. On Facebook, you may provide a health-related life event that may be used to help you remember important moments from your life.
  • Location. Location-related information such as your current location, where you live, the places you like to go, and the businesses and people you're near may be used to provide, personalize and improve our Products, including ads, for you and others.
  • Financial Information. Financial information may be used for purchases, such as making a purchase in a game, or making a donation.
  • Sensitive Information. You may provide your religious or political views in your Facebook profile fields, sharing this information with friends or another intended audience.
  • Contacts. Imported contacts help you and others find people you may know.
  • User Content. Camera or voice-enabled features may help suggest masks and filters that you might like, or respond to your voice commands.
  • Browsing History. To show you more relevant ads, we receive and use data that advertisers and other partners provide to us about your activity on their websites and apps, as well as some of your offline interactions, such as purchases. For example, we may show you an ad for a shirt based on your visit to a clothing website.
  • Search History. When searching Facebook (for example, for people, posts, Pages or groups) you can access and delete those searches from within your search history or from your Facebook activity log.
  • Identifiers. Account and device identifiers we collect can be used to match and store information with your Facebook account.
  • Purchases. If you choose to use Facebook Shops, we are able to understand your shopping activity, such as the products you view and purchase. This means that what you browse and purchase within Shops may influence what you see in Shops and other Facebook Products.
  • Usage Data & Diagnostics. Information about the features you use and the duration of your activities when you use our products may help us improve the products for you and others.
  • Other Data Types. We conduct and support research and innovation on topics of general social welfare, technological advancement, public interest, health and well-being. For example, we analyze information we have about migration patterns during crises to aid relief efforts.
