However, we point out to our communication partners that although WhatsApp does not see the content, it can learn that and when communication partners communicate with us, as well as technical information about the device used by the communication partners and, depending on the settings of their device, also location information (so-called metadata). Except for the encrypted content, it is possible to transmit the data of the communication partners within the Facebook group of companies, in particular for the purpose of optimizing the respective services and security purposes. Similarly, communication partners, at least until they have objected, should assume that their data processed by WhatsApp can be used for marketing or ad serving purposes.
