Signal messages and calls cannot be accessed by us or other third parties because they are always end-to-end encrypted, private, and secure.
"Signal messages, pictures, files, and other contents are stored locally on your device. These contents are readable by the open source Signal clients. Because everything in Signal is end-to-end encrypted, the Signal service does not have access to any of this data. There are several community-developed open source utilities that are capable of parsing locally stored Signal content. Android users can also help us test a new backup feature that makes it possible to move your local Signal data between devices (Signal Settings > Chats and media > Chat backups)."

A better annotation would be from their ToS: "You own the information you submit through our Services."

And I also found empire resume services on this page which is incredible. Data should remain end to end encrypted. Thanks for sharing this with us.
