What Clay Does
Clay automatically creates cards for your friends on Facebook. Clay will create cards for new people and deduplicate with existing cards when there's a high degree of confidence that the people are the same.
Clay adds birthday information to your Facebook friends, if it's available. If you see a birthday for a friend in Facebook, it will be added in Clay as well.
Clay will continuously reimport Facebook friends in the background. This means you’ll always have your newest friends in Clay.
What Clay Doesn’t Do
Clay doesn't store or have access to your Facebook credentials. All processing happens on device, and Clay does not have access to your login email or password.
Clay doesn't share friendship or birthday data with other people. Friendship and birthday data remains private to you, and respects the visibility settings that each friend has on Facebook.
