|Updates to Our Terms and Data Policy|
|Instagram has been a part of Facebook since 2012, and we’re making some corporate changes. Going forward, our Terms will reflect that Facebook Inc. is responsible for Instagram. The Instagram app and the way we process data are not changing.|
|Our Terms are now more clear about the service we provide, and what we expect from every member of our community to keep Instagram a safe place for everyone. Here are some updates we want to make sure you know about:|
|We also have a new Data Policy that explains how data is collected, shared and used in the Facebook Products, including Instagram. The policy addresses newer features like stories, direct messaging, activity status and the creative tools in our cameras. We wanted to make sure you knew about this new information in the policy.|
