Snapchat Clarifies New Privacy Policy And Terms Of Use

Snapchat clarified its new privacy policy and terms of use, both updated on October 28.

This weekend, there were many rumors about the Snapchat’s latest privacy policy and terms of use update. From the moment of the update, you could read a bunch of reports saying the new policy gave the company the ownership over the text messages, photos and videos of its users.

In the Terms of Service update from October 28, under “Your Content”, Snapchat said:

“But you grant Snapchat a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to host, store, use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, edit, publish, create derivative works from, publicly perform, broadcast, distribute, syndicate, promote, exhibit, and publicly display that content in any form and in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).”

The rumors have been circulating over the weekend, which is why Snapchat published the statement on its official blog, to clarify new Privacy Policy and Terms of use.

“First off, we want to be crystal clear: The Snaps and Chats you send your friends remain as private today as they were before the update,” Snapchat said.

“Our Privacy Policy continues to say—as it did before—that those messages are automatically deleted from our servers once we detect that they have been viewed or have expired,” the statement read.

The company said that a recipient can save the or screenshot the chats or snaps, but they also added that “Snapchat is not—and never has been—stockpiling your private Snaps or Chats.”

As Snapchat explained the update, users can relax knowing their snaps and chats remain private.
