Among the types of data that the application collects, by itself or through third parties, there are Device Identifiers and Recordings.

Device Identifiers

We collect the iOS platform Identifier for Vendor (IFV) and push notification token. These identifiers are anonymous by themselves, and are collected for the sole purpose of the functioning of the service - for example to route a call from one device to another.

We collect the iOS platform Advertising Identifier, IDFA for the purpose of associating clicks on advertisement links, such as invitations sent from other users, with the app installation from the App Store. We do this to be able display the link content in the app on first opening, without the user having to click the link again.

We collect a peer identifier, that is unique and randomly generated by our service, which is used to identify the app installation when establishing a pairing and routing calls.

We collect the iOS device name, for the purpose of displaying it to other users that you invite to establish a pairing.

TrueDepth camera

The XmasTime iOS app collects the users head rotation and facial features (eye, mouth and nose positition) from the TrueDepth camera. This information is use to animate the Santa Clause figure on the screen. The information is also transmitted to the XmasTime app instance you are calling to, to also animate Santa on that device. The information is not shared with any third parties.


The XmasTime iOS app saves recordings of your calls, allowing you to create and share a video clip. The recordings are stored locally on your device, and are not shared with us or any third parties. The recording information stored includes the call recorded audio, video, and the information necessary to animate Santa Claus - which includes the information collected from the TrueDepth camera mentioned above.
