Your privacy and security is important to us

We believe that your privacy is as important as our product quality. We treat your privacy as the security baseline of our products. From the beginning of designing a product, we lay emphasis on the protection of personal privacy, and require privacy protection throughout the process of product research and development. All your personal information stored on your mobile phone, including photos, SMS, contacts, chat histories, visited website information and information stored on the Cloud Service will be properly protected. You will be explicitly informed of all permissions to be obtained from your mobile phone and the methods employed to collect your personal data. In addition, where indicated, your explicit consent must be obtained. You can actively control your personal content and information that are shared.

We try our best to ensure

the security of your personal data

Your personal information is protected by encryption during transfer and storage. For example, when you use the Cloud Service, we adopt industry-leading cloud storage technologies and disaster recovery strategies that ensure your data is appropriately protected. We adopt industry mainstream encryption algorithms to ensure that your data can only be stored and transferred after encryption. No one can view your data except yourself.

We only

collect the minimum amount of data

In order to provide you with the necessary services or personalized user experiences, we need to collect and use some of your information. This may include your account number, device ID, phone number, etc. However, please rest assured that all our products must go through a privacy compliance review at the beginning of the design process. For information collection, we only allow products to collect the minimum information required for the purpose of that product's business functions. In addition, for personalized user experiences your explicit consent will be required in order to collect the information.


personal data

Whether you are taking photos, sending SMS, or using the Cloud Service, we will never disclose or sell your data to any third-party organization without your permission.

You can

manage your personal data at any time

Only after being authorized by you in advance can an app installed on your OPPO device access your information, such as photos and contacts. You can control the permissions requested by an installed app, separately allowing an app to use some permissions or blocking the app from using a particular permission. For example, you can block an app from accessing and obtaining your personal data, such as contacts, SMS, and location data. Before being authorized, the app is unable to access these protected resources and data in your device.

We are committed to protecting your privacy

How we protect your privacy

The security of your personal information is important to us. Therefore, we are striving to develop a variety of products to ensure the security of your personal information throughout the product life cycle.
  • Secure keyboard

    The system automatically switches to the OPPO Secure Keyboard when you need to enter sensitive information and connect to the Internet, or autocomplete words. This ensures that your sensitive information remains private.
  • Protection against unauthorized access

    Protect your information from being leaked. Any access by an app to your call history, contacts, messages, and schedules requires your prior approval. Where no approval is given, the respective function will either be blocked or blank information is provided.
  • Private Safe

    You can move photos, videos, audio and documents into the Private Safe, edit the title by touching and holding the album or file, and view private files after confirming your access privilege through the privacy password. This can help prevent the leaking of important personal files and private data.
  • Prevent Background Recordings or Audio/Image

    Even if you have generally granted an app the permission to use your microphone, you will be prompted via the status bar or any use of your microphone by an app running in the background. When a background app wants to use the camera, you will be requested to grant permission.
  • Screenshots & Screen Recordings Prevention

    If you activate this feature, the system will block screenshots and screen recordings when you use functions that relate to your private information such as the Secure Keyboard and Private Safe. The screenshot action will then be intercepted, and you will be notified of such blocking. The screen recording action will only show a blank, black screen.
  • Payment Protection

    During your payment process with an OPPO mobile phone, we will run automated checks on the URLs accessed when using the OPPO browser, as well as URLs contained in received messages. This is to recduce risks to your secure payments.
  • App Lock

    Before enabling App lock, you need to set the privacy password first. When the app is launched, you can access the app only when you enter the correct privacy password, or use fingerprint or facial verification. After App Lock is enabled, the incoming notifications will be hidden by default, and you can view them only when you pass the identity verification. You can also choose the lock timing, so that if you choose "no verification before locking the screen", you won't need to verify your identity before the next time the screen locks, which is more convenient.
  • OPPO App Market

    You can browse, download, install, update, and uninstall apps through the Oppo App Market. These apps are uploaded by developers. Any upload of an app musst pass an Oppo test where Oppo provides a security labal based on security scan reports and reported entries on the resource details page. Users can report any advertisements, paid features, viruses and other unsafe content in the app at any time. The App Market tightly controls app permissions. You can view which permissions are used on the details page of each app. This will help you clearly know which permissions are used by the app.

Manage your privacy

OPPO provides a variety of tools and funtions to help you improve your privacy and manage it more conviniently

Your priacy management tool

3D facial recognition

3D face recognition is a type of biometric identification technology that uses artificial intelligence to verify your identity based on the 3D recognition of your face. You can use this 3D facial recognition to verify your identity and unlock the device. In addition to traditional facial information, 3D face recognition also performs a 3D scan of the face to extract three-dimensional features such as contours and skin texture on a living object. This provides a higher level of biometric recognition. 3D facial recognition adopts secure image acquisition technology. The whole process, from image acquisition to feature extraction/matching, as well as unique features information storage is carried out in a completely isolated, secure and trusted environment. The unique features information is always encrypted by chip-level encryption algorithms to ensure that your personal identity information will not be intercepted, leaked or distorted.

Fingerprint unlock

Fingerprints are inherent physiological features of the human body, and are characterized by uniqueness and lifelong invariance. After the personal fingerprint information is extracted through the enrolling operation, it will be saved to the secure zone of the device through a powerful encryption algorithm. When unlocking the device, the fingerprint image is obtained when you lightly press the fingerprint icon/sensor, and this will then be comprehensively compared with the saved fingerprint information. The correct finger will unlock the device successfully. All the above steps are run in the TrustZone, a secure and isolated environment, and will not be affected by other Android apps.

We protect your account

Account registration

When you register an account, you are required to use a strong password with a length of at least 6 characters (up to 16 characters), and the password needs to contain two of the following options: numbers, letters or symbols. This means you can use your account more conveniently and safely.

Account login

In order to ensure the security of your account, two-factor authentication is required when you login on an unfamiliar device/new device. You can also verify the security of your account through the device that is already logged in to make your account more secure.

Login history

The login status of your account on other devices will be synced to your current device, allowing you to keep track of the security status of the account in real time. You can also remove devices that are logged in to the account.

Manage your privacy

Cloud Service

Cloud Service uses industry-leading cloud storage technology, disaster recovery strategies and encryption algorithms to ensure the safety of your data,it also takes multiple protection measures to ensure that personal information is not stolen.No one but you can see your data stored in the cloud.

Data and privacy management platform

In order to give you more control over your personal information, we are gradually introducing on the account page a set of tools dedicated to your privacy management. With these tools, you can access, request data correction, obtain a copy of your personal data, and disable or delete your account.

    • The term personal data is broadly defined and means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. This means that not only the data that, for example, identifies you directly, such as your name or address, is personal data but also other data, which when combined with other information accessible to us, enables us to link that data to you, for example, an IP address.
    • Our channels for collecting personal data include: 1. personal data that you provide to us directly; 2. personal data that we automatically obtain when you interact with our Services, such as information on your interactions with our Services or us, and/or; 3. personal data that we obtain about you from third parties.
    • The personal data we collect depends on the environment in which you interact with us and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the features and Services you use.
    • 1. Personal Data Directly Provided by You
    • You may provide personal data to us directly, in which case you are generally free to choose which personal data you want to provide to us. However, if some personal data is required for the performance of our Services and you choose not to provide that personal data, we may not be able to provide you with the Services you requested. Personal data we directly collect from you may, for instance, include the following:
    • • If you order Services from us, or use a paid Service: We may collect your delivery details, bank account number, credit card details, billing address and other financial information relating to the transaction, order number, name and contact details, information about purchase/return/refund requests or other requests and any other communication records, so we can process your order.
    • • When you follow our social media accounts or interact with us in any other way: We may collect your profile information, the content and details of the timing of the communication exchanged or other personal data as required to respond to your request. The data we receive is dependent on your privacy settings with the social network.
    • • When you share content with others: Some of our Services allow you to communicate and share content with others. The communicated or shared content shall be transmitted through and stored in our system.

    • • Log information: This may include when and how long the Service is used, search terms entered through the Service and the device error logs. The Android system on your smartphone and/or wearable is designed in such a way that your error or crash log will contain information collected at the time of the event, which allows us to analyse the reasons for the crash. Such information may sometimes include your personal data, such as phone number, email address, Google account or Facebook account. However, we have implemented security measures to ensure that this information is used only for error log analysis and not for personal identification or other purposes.
    • • Location information: This may include the GPS signal of the device or information about Wi-Fi access points and base stations near you, or the device location ID and network service provider ID when you access some location-based services (for example when you use the weather app). We will ask you if you want to enable location-based services for each of the various location-based apps. You can disable the location settings of your device from the device settings. If you disable location information, the functionalities of the apps that use location information to provide Services to you may be impaired.
    • • Camera: To ensure the camera app functions properly, we collect operational data (such as how many times you use the app and the number of photos taken), information about the photos taken (such as the photosensitivity and number of faces captured) and information about the available space left on your mobile phone.

In particular, if you interact with us through a social media site or third-party service, such as when you like, follow or share OPPO content on Facebook, Twitter or other sites, we may receive information from the social network, including your profile information, picture, user ID associated with your social media account and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties.
    • 4. Types of Data Processed Locally on Your Device
    • For the avoidance of doubt and to ensure transparency about the processing of data, please note that the data set out in this section will only be collected and processed locally on your device and not uploaded to our servers. Therefore, we will neither access, collect nor otherwise process such data, nor will we be able to disclose this information to any third party or use it for any other purpose. This also means that this data processing is done by you only and is thus not subject to this Privacy Notice. If you want to exercise your rights in relation to such data or would like to modify or delete it, we will not be able to support you, except to provide information on how you can handle your data yourself.
    • • When you use facial and fingerprint recognition: These functionalities enable rapid unlocking of your device with your pre-recorded facial or fingerprint information. To activate this function, you will need to provide your facial information or your fingerprint information captured from different angles. This type of information will be encrypted and stored using a unique secret key.
    • • Photos information: The "Photos" app uses local image and video recognition algorithms on your device to enable you to organise your photos and videos. If you allow the app to use your location information, the device will record latitude and longitude information for your photo and video files. If you do not want to record your location when you take a photo, you can disable this feature at any time in your device's settings. When you search for a picture, the device's technology will identify photos that match the search terms, allowing you to quickly view relevant photos.
    • 5. Other Non-personal Data
    • Non-personal data refers to information which cannot be directly or indirectly associated with any specific individual. We may process aggregated or otherwise anonymised data.
    • We collect non-personal data to understand users' preferences, improve our operational efficiency and optimise our websites and your product experience. If the non-personal data is combined with personal data, all such data will be treated as personal data.

    • 5. Clear/Disable Cookies
    • Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies. Please note that if you choose to refuse all cookies, you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Services.

  5. V      How Long We Keep Your Personal Data

    • We will only store your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the collection purposes set out in this Privacy Notice, unless a longer retention period is required by law. If we are required by law to store your personal data beyond this period (such as for tax and commercial law reasons), we will delete the personal data at the end of this storage period.
    • After the expiry of the aforementioned retention periods, we will delete or anonymise your personal data.
    • To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use and disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process the personal data and the applicable legal requirements.
    • If, after you sign up for our promotional emails, you unsubscribe from receiving our promotional emails, we will delete your personal data from our mailing lists. However, we will continue to store your email address in a blocklist to ensure that you will not receive any further communication.
  6. VI     How We Disclose Your Personal Data

    • At times OPPO may make certain personal data available to other companies that are wholly or jointly controlled by us ("Affiliates") and other third parties that work with OPPO in order to provide Services to you. Your personal data will not be shared with third parties for their own independent marketing purposes.
    • • Affiliates: Your personal data may be shared with OPPO's Affiliates for the purpose of rendering our Services to you. If Affiliates wish to process data for a different purpose, they must first seek your consent, unless another lawful basis exists.
    • • Service providers and partners: Some of our Services will be provided with the assistance of third parties. We may also share some personal data with our partners in particular so as to deliver you a better service and improve your user experience. For example, when you use the security centre app, third-party service providers are used to scan for viruses and free up storage space on your phone, and we engage third-party service providers to provide you with enhanced customer service. We may also rely on service providers to identify and serve targeted advertisements, provide email services, provide tax and accounting services, organise competitions and deliver web hosting or analytics services. Any such service providers will, through appropriate data processing agreements, be bound to only process personal data on OPPO's behalf and under our instructions, unless such service providers act as independent controllers.
    • • Purchasers and third parties in connection with a business transaction: Where a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy liquidation or similar action takes place, we may transfer or disclose your personal data to a limited, but necessary extent to the applicable third party.
    • • Law enforcement, regulators and other parties for legal reasons: We may also disclose your personal data to third parties as required by law, or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary (a) to comply with a subpoena or other legal proceedings, legal actions or government agency requests; (b) when we believe in good faith that a disclosure is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (c) to protect and exercise our legal claims, rights and property; (d) to protect your rights, property or personal safety or that of others; (e) to investigate fraud and (f) to protect the security or integrity of our Services.
    • • The public, when posted in certain public spaces: Some of our Services allow you to connect and interact with others. Your profile information or information that you post in a forum or on a blog, including personal data, will be accessible to other users or the general public by default when you create it. Such content will be accessible by the general public or the members of the Service depending on the Service used.
    • • Otherwise with consent: We may disclose your personal data to certain other third parties with your consent.
  7. VII     How Your Personal Data Is Transferred Globally

    • 1. We leverage our resources and servers around the world to provide Services. We have data centres in France, Singapore, India and Indonesia, which means that in compliance with applicable laws, your personal data might be transferred to or accessed from countries or regions outside of where you use our Services.
    • 2. Please note that different countries or regions offer different levels of data protection. This means that your personal data could be stored in a country that offers a level of protection that may, in certain instances, be less protective of your personal data than the country or region in which you are located. However, in such cases, we will take measures to ensure that the personal data we collect is processed in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable laws, and that your personal data is adequately protected. For example, we might ask your permission to transfer your personal data across borders, and we will implement adequate security measures (such as encryption and de-identification where feasible) and sign the necessary data transmission/sharing agreements with the recipients of your personal data prior to the transfer taking place. We will also specifically ensure that we comply with laws that require us to store data locally within a specific country or region.
  8. VIII    How We Protect Your Personal Data

    • 1. The security of your personal data is very important to us. We have taken reasonably practical, technical and organisational measures in accordance with industry standards to protect personal data collected in connection with our Service and prevent it from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access. However, please note that while we have taken reasonable measures to protect your personal data, no websites, Internet transmissions, computer systems or wireless connections are absolutely secure. In particular:
    • • Where appropriate, we will de-identify your personal data to mitigate the risk that other organisations or individuals may identify you on the basis of that personal data. We may also implement full security encryption during storage and transmission to prevent your personal data from unauthorised access, use or disclosure (such as by using SSL to encrypt many Services). We regularly review practices regarding personal data collection, storage and processing (including physical security measures) to prevent unauthorised access to or tampering with our various systems and your personal data.
    • • We only allow OPPO employees and personnel of authorised service companies to access such personal data on a need-to-know basis, in order to process such personal data or provide relevant Services to you. These employees and external personnel are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations. If they fail to perform these obligations, they may be held liable and/or their relationship with OPPO may be terminated.
    • • When transmitting and storing special categories of personal data, we use extra security measures, such as encryption of the transmitted content. We also use technical measures to process your personal biometric information so that we only need to store essential data (such as basic parameters necessary to identify a person, but not the raw facial and fingerprint data).

B. GDPR-Specific Provisions

The following provisions only apply to you if you live in Europe.

  1. I     Legal Bases for the Processing of Personal Data

    • Our processing of your personal data as described in the Section "How We Use Your Personal Data" is based on the following legal grounds:
    • 1. Consent: We may process your personal data with your consent. In particular, we may ask for your consent to participate in promotional activities, such as to send you promotional messages or enable you to participate in the User Experience Program and certain Services, including services through which we collect location information. You have the right not to provide consent, or to withdraw it at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of our use of your personal data before your withdrawal. If you have granted us consent to use your personal data, we will use it only for the purposes specified in the consent declaration. Please note that to the extent our processing is based on your consent and you deny your consent or withdraw it, we may not be able to provide the service relating thereto. Besides from that, neither the initial denial nor a withdrawal will have any negative consequences for you.
    • 2. Perform or enter into a contract with you:
    • We rely on this legal basis in particular in the following cases:
    • • to provide you with OPPO's Services, process your orders or fulfil the contract between you and OPPO;
    • • to activate Services you have purchased, your warranty service and specific software licenses and provide notifications for software updates;
    • • to allow and manage your participation in prize draws, contests or similar promotional activities held by us; and
    • • to diagnose product issues, repair customer equipment and provide other customer care and support Services.
    • 3. Compliance with a legal obligation: OPPO may be obliged to process personal data to comply with our legal obligations, for example where OPPO is required to retain data for tax law or commercial purposes.
    • 4. Legitimate interests: The processing of your personal data may also be necessary for OPPO's legitimate interests. In particular, such cases may include the following:
    • • to conduct customer surveys to enhance your user experience;
    • • to analyse the customer market on the basis of the country where you use our Services, including the number of users for product marketing and promotion;
    • • to analyse the efficiency of our business operations;
    • • to analyse error logs to improve phone quality and app functions;
    • • to provide you with personalised Services and to recommend and display content and advertisements tailored to you through our Services;
    • • to communicate with you and reply to your questions or comments submitted to us by any means;
    • • to ensure the functionality and safety of our Services;
    • • to verify your identity;
    • • to conduct internal auditing and to prevent and investigate fraud, cybersecurity threats or other improper use;
    • • to enhance and develop our Services, including relevant security features, so as to improve the product usage experience, user-friendliness, operational performance, functions and design;
    • • to pursue or defend against legal claims.
    • Your personal data will only be processed on the above grounds after we have appropriately assessed and balanced our interests against your right to privacy.
  2. II      Additional Information on How Your Personal Data Is Transferred Globally

    • In case your personal data is transferred to jurisdictions located outside of Europe, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards exist and are applied, such as:
    • 1. the recipient of the personal data is located within a country that benefits from an "adequacy" decision of the European Commission;
    • 2. the recipient has signed a contract based on "model contractual clauses" approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data;
    • 3. or in the absence of the above appropriate safeguards, we will ask you for your explicit consent for the cross-border transfer of your personal data or take any other measures that are recognised as providing a sufficient level of protection for your personal data.
    • For more information about the safeguards relating to personal data transfers outside of Europe, please submit your request via our DSR platform (https://www.oppo.com/en/privacy-feedback/).
  3. III      Additional Information on Cookies and Other Tracking Technology

    • If you wish to obtain detailed information on the use of cookies and other tracking technology, please read our Cookies Statement.
  4. IV      Additional Information on Your Rights Regarding Personal Data

    • Subject to the legal requirements under the GDPR, you have the following rights:
    • The right to access: You may request access to the personal data we hold about you.
    • The right to rectification: If you find that the personal data we process about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you are entitled to ask us to make rectifications without undue delay and to request the completion of your personal data where appropriate.
    • The right to erasure: You can submit a request to us to delete personal data, and we shall have the obligation to erase it without undue delay in some circumstances – for example, if we do not have a legal reason to continue to process the personal data to the extent required by applicable laws and regulations. Please note in so far as you delete all the data that is contained in your device, this does not mean that you have deleted all data that OPPO collects and processes about you. Therefore, we encourage you to contact us (please refer to the section "Contact Us" above) to request that your personal data is deleted.
    • The right to restriction of processing: You have the right, in certain circumstances, to request OPPO to temporarily restrict the processing of your personal data, such as where the accuracy of that personal data is contested by you, while we verify the accuracy of that personal data. We will keep just enough data, or process such data as is necessary to ensure that we comply with your restriction request in the future.
    • THE RIGHT TO OBJECT: You have the right to object to any processing justified by legitimate interests based on grounds relating to your particular situation at any time. Should you decide to object to the processing of your personal data, we will stop processing personal data that concerns you, unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for continuing to process your personal data that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or in the case that we establish, exercise or defend our legal claims. You can object to direct marketing activities at any time for any reason whatsoever.
    • The right to data portability: You have the right to obtain a copy of your personal data in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format and transmit such data to another provider or have such data transmitted to another provider under certain circumstances.
    • The right to withdraw consent: If you have given us your consent to process your personal data but change your mind later, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of our use of your personal data before your withdrawal. If you want to withdraw your consent with regard to receiving promotional communications, you can unsubscribe through the method described in each promotional message. If you withdraw your consent, we may no longer be able to provide you with the corresponding Service.
    • The right to lodge a complaint: You have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority about the way we handle or process your personal data, or file a lawsuit in a court with jurisdiction. Information about how to contact your local data protection supervisory authority is available here.
