Information We Collect & How It Is Used

Account Information. We collect your email address and phone number to create an account and verify your identity. We also create a user ID for your Poe account. If you are an existing Quora user, your name, Quora-associated email address, profile photo, and Quora user ID will be used to link your Quora account to your Poe account. We may use this information to communicate with you about your account.

Contact List. With your consent, Poe may access and periodically sync your phone’s contact list to make it easy for you to find and connect with your friends on Poe.

Device Information. We collect your device type and operating system details for analytics and to troubleshoot product issues.

Third Party Application Login. You can log into your Poe account using third party applications (e.g., Google and Apple). When you log in using this method, we collect your name and email address associated with that third party application for authentication and identity verification purposes.

Subscription Billing Data. We use a third party service provider to collect and process your billing information when you subscribe to Poe. The information they collect may include your name, billing address, your credit or debit card details, phone number, and email address.

Interactions with Poe. Our third party LLM providers may receive details about your interactions with Poe (including the contents of your chats, upvotes, etc.) to provide and generally improve their services. Your account information is anonymized before being shared with our LLM providers. Keep in mind, any information you provide to the bots on Poe will be shared with third party LLM providers powering the bots, and there is no need to share sensitive personal information with the bots (e.g., credit card information, social security information, etc.). For more information about the LLM providers, please see the respective bot profiles.
