Terms and Privacy policy

This document is here to inform you about the privacy practices of the Onymous chat service, which are designed to protect your privacy to the maximum reasonable extent. By making use of Onymous, you accept these practices. This document may be updated from time to time as and when we see fit. Please stay updated.

Chat privacy

Onymous doesn't track or store any information regarding the users or the usage. Onymous is meant to be a super anonymous and secure chat platform. No logs are maintained on the server except for debugging and error tracking purpose which by no means logs any user related information. All the communication between your browser/app to our servers and from our servers to your partner's browser/app is fully encrypted which protects you from any malicious user sniffing your chat messages and other activities.

This platform doesn't verify the users so the onous is on you to respect the age restriction and refrain from any activities that might invite legal troubles. While Onymous doesn't track or record any identifying information about you, understand that strangers can potentially tell other people anything you tell them - whether by sharing the log, or just by repeating what you said - and be careful what information you reveal to them. It is also possible for other users to take screenshots of video chats, or to use third-party software to record them.

Onymous chat requires a direct connection to be made between your computer/phone and the other user's computer/phone. To do this, it is necessary to make your IP address available to the other user's computer, although it is not shown to the other user by Onymous's interface. This is a necessary part of how any P2P video chat system functions.

Use of cookies

Onymous Web uses cookies to save your preferences as well as to store various non-personally-identifying technical information about your computer system (such as the capabilities it supports). Onymous also assigns your computer a randomly-generated ID cookie. Third party advertising vendors, including Google AdSense, use cookies to track information about the pages you visit, so that they can show you more appropriate ads. The cookie used by Google AdSense is called the DoubleClick DART cookie, and Google provides a way to opt out of being tracked by DART. You may also opt out of the tracking cookies used by many (but not necessarily all) other third-party ad vendors. Onymous uses Google Analytics to track non-personally-identifying statistical information about site usage. Google provides browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics.

Camera and microphone permission

Camera and microphone permissions are necessary for Onymous Web or App to provide you video chat functionality. The streaming happens between the user and the partner. This video streaming happens over WebRTC protocol with HTTPS security. Our app/website doesn't allow third party to access this communication nor it records any of it to our server. Once either party in the conversation disconnects from the video chat, all record of any such communication seize to exist. However, in the interest of anonymity, users are recommended to exercise discretion as the partner could technically record or take screenshots at his/her end and Onymous is not liable or responsible for any dispute that arises out of such action.

Parental control software

Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. If you are interested in learning more about these protections, information is available at number of Internet sites that provide information on this form of protection.
