FaceApp's privacy policy says they collect the following categories of data:

They say they "may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you."

In addition, they say they "may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties." It is very unclear what data they are actually sharing with other parties.
