If you are thinking of using the #FaceApp consider Section 5 of the ToS & that you grant FaceApp a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully-paid, transferable sub-licensable licence to use your content (and which may be of your friends or colleagues)
for a range of commercial purposes & that you acknowledge that some of the Services are supported by advertising revenue & may display advertisements & promos, & you agree that
.. FaceApp may place such advertising & promos on the Services or on, about, or in conjunction with your User Content.

Recall that your behavioural data may be used to support such commercial purposes such as advertising. Ask, what would my friend say about using her/his image?
Section 5 #FaceApp ToS.

S10, you also "indemnify, defend, and hold harmless FaceApp .. your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights)”

<waves at friends and their privacy rights
Section 5 of the Tos faceapp.com/terms should be read in conjunction w/the privacy policy faceapp.com/privacy

"Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app.” That’s a lorry data
And don’t forget those device identifiers.

👀 "A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads.” 😲 personalised content 🤔 Ads 🤔
Don’t forget the #metadata folks. From reading the privacy policy #FaceApp "may use information" they receive to "provide personalized content & information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing ..” <that word ‘MAY” - will ya or won’t ya?
Please note: these observations are a result of reading the TOS & Privacy Policy. #FaceApp gives themselves a range of rights to your image/content & device & behavioural data. I also used the ExodusPrivacy tool. I have not examined the exfiltration of data.
Others have looked at the exfiltration of data
Here’s a statement #FaceApp sent to journalists.

Their support desk is overwhelmed with requests from people to delete their data. it had instructions how to request removal of data.

Also they don’t sell or share data with 3rd parties. Hmmm .. what about the advertisers ?
