Biometric identifiers do not include, among other things, photographs or physical descriptions such as height, weight, hair color, or eye color. “Biometric information” means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual’s biometric identifier used to identify an individual.

We do this in order to provide you with a photorealistic avatar and animate that avatar using your movements, gestures, and expressions, and to improve our models and consequently our avatars.
