We strive to connect people genuinely. Being a startup, we learn as we go and have the best intentions to provide you with a safe online community. 

Safety steps we have taken:

  • You can report users, comments, or posts that are inappropriate.
  • We never display an exact location on posts.
  • You decide who can view your private/”Friends” posts.
  • Posts visible to users less than have 0.5 miles away, or less will see “<0.5 mi.”

No. Users only see the distance of the public posts you create if the location of the post is within the distance a user selects in the filter menu.

Only Circa users who are in the area and have their filter distance set to include your public post(s) will see your public posts.

Only Circa users who are in the area and have their filter distance set to include your public post(s) will see your public posts.

We use your location when the app is use in two ways:

  1. When you open up the Circa, the app takes your location to fill your home feed of posts; users have chosen to share with the public.
  2. Users see the location distance of the post you create. Any distance less than 0.5 miles is displayed as “<0.5 mi” to eliminate sharing the precise location of your post.

Only users who accept your friend request or you accept their friend request. The user’s location and filter distance also has to be set to include the location of your post.

Your privacy and information is our top priority. We use Google Cloud Services to store your data in a secure cloud location. Google employs multiple layers of security to protect data stored on their network. To learn more, visit Google Security
