Please note that, to the extent required by applicable law, We will obtain your express consent for the collection, use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
We collect information including personally identifiable information, directly from you, from third parties and automatically through your use of our Services.
When you create a profile on our Platform you will be asked to provide basic information about you which We need to enable us to provide you the Services including contact information (e.g. your email address), demographic information (e.g. your city of residence, zip/postal code, age, gender and ethnicity), and some personal characteristics (height, weight and body type). We may supplement this with information about your IP address, or your location, when you use the Services.
While creating your profile, you may choose how much personally identifiable information you share with us. You will be asked to create a username and offered the chance to upload a photograph and provide a personal description. You are encouraged to create a pseudonymous profile and are not required to include information in your profile that would allow you to be directly identified. Obviously do be careful if you want to remain anonymous, especially if you upload photographs or choose a username which could allow you to be easily identified.
When you make a purchase off our Platform you will be asked for certain personally identifiable information for billing purposes including your name, address and details of your chosen payment method.
With your permission, We will also collect your location information from your mobile device to help you identify other Platform members in your area. You may turn off this feature through the location settings on your mobile device. We also collect your general geographic location from your browser access to help you identify members in your area and to help us quickly and efficiently respond to inquiries and requests.
We use the information We collect, including personally identifiable information, for the following purposes:
We also use aggregate, de-identified and/or non-personally identifying information, which does not personally identify. For example, We may collect and analyze aggregated, de-identified, statistical information to help improve operation of the Services and manage user activity across the Platform.
We may disclose personally identifiable information in the following circumstances for any or more of the purposes described above:
We may disclose aggregate, de-identified and/or non-personally identifying information, which does not personally identify you or other users, in a number of circumstances including to third party advertisers.
We use third-party analytics and other tracking mechanisms to track your use of our Platform and the Services. Such tracking mechanisms may automatically collect information such as: your IP address, domain name, browser type and operating system; web pages you view; links you click; how you move through the Platform and the length of time you visit our Platform and use the Services; and the referring URL, or the webpage that led you to our Platform. We may combine this information with other personally identifiable information We collect from you.
Do-Not-Track. Currently, We rely on iOS / Android embedded mechanisms which would disable sharing any identifiers allowing to track user identity between apps (s.a. identifier for advertising on iOS or Android ID on Android) .
We keep the personally identifiable information We collect for at least as long as your profile stays active or hidden. You may delete your account; however, We may retain a copy of your personally identifiable information in our records for a period of time, including as part of our backup procedures and as otherwise required by law.
You have the opportunity to (i) opt-out of certain communications, (ii) modify/update personally identifiable information you have provided to us, and (iii) hide certain information visible to public users of the Platform at any time by going to the 'Manage Profile' or 'Account Settings’ sections on your profile.
Please be aware that it may take several hours for any custom changes you make to take effect on the public areas of the system. Please also note that changing or deleting your information through the 'Manage Profile' or ‘Account Settings’ section of the system, or opting-out of email notifications from us, will only change or delete the data in our database for the purpose of future activities and communications.
We take the protection of your personally identifiable information seriously. We protect personally identifiable information against loss and theft as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, and modification using security safeguards, including physical, organization and technological measures, commensurate with the sensitivity of your personally identifiable information. Employees who have access to your information are made aware of the importance of keeping it confidential.
Where We use service providers who might have access to your personally identifiable information, We require them to have privacy and security standards that are comparable to ours. We use contracts and other measures with our service providers to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personally identifiable information and to prevent it from being used for any other purpose.
Please be aware that no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should also take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your login and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
We aim to resolve all complaints promptly.
