Through the use of a cookie, we also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Service, such as the web pages you visit, the time and date of your visits, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on our Service. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on our Service.

  • Login information: all information generated from your login onto our platform.

  • Your location (if your device settings are enabled to send it to us). In addition, your (probable) location can be stated on a geographical map based on your IP address.

We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of our Service. We also may include web beacons in advertisements or email messages to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the Service we offer our visitors and users to deliver targeted advertisements and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities. We may also use Google Cloud Vision API or other similar services to detect inappropriate content (e.g. adult or violent content) in the photographs you download. That enables us to provide safe user experience for you by identifying any undesirable user behavior.

2.3. Via external partners

We may allow third-party partners, including our authorized service providers, analytics providers, advertising companies and ad networks, to use "cookies" and other similar technologies to collect information about how the Service, advertisements, and email are viewed and accessed. We do not provide any Personal Data to these third parties. This information allows us to learn more about how the Service is used and for them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. Our partners also may collect information about your online activities over time, on other devices, and on other websites or online services when they also use our partners' services. When they provide such services, they are governed by their own privacy policies.

3. FOR WHAT PURPOSE DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We collect your Personal Data and other information to give every User of the Service a safe, optimal and personal user experience. We may use information that we collect for the following purposes:

  • The improvement of platform functionality by analysis and interpretation of user statistics. We are happy to make use of new techniques to improve and renew our products and services.

  • Advertising. Advertising allows us to provide you the rich content available on the Service. Some of our ads are based on the content of pages you are viewing elsewhere on the internet (i.e. online behavioral advertising). We believe that such tailored ads are more relevant to you and, therefore, more desirable.

  • The detection of, and protection against fraud, errors and/or criminal behavior and breaches of our code of conduct. This is necessary in order to be able to offer a secure and a high-performance platform. Although we do not usually read or monitor the messages sent or received by you via the Service, we reserve the right to access and view such messages to detect any fraud or other illegal and undesirable user behavior, perform background checks on users or take any legally required actions. For instance, that may happen if we receive numerous complaints from the users on the content of the messages received from you.

  • General member management and carrying out our paid services. By this we mean any action necessary to ensure proper service to our users. We use information to personalize the Service for you, such as to select the payment processor available to you, determine eligibility for promotions, and show you personalized advertisements.

Some of the data we receive can, due to their nature, be qualified as "sensitive". Sensitive data is data considering your health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs and sexuality. Users are not required to share sensitive Personal Data on their profiles, but they can choose to do so. Sensitive Personal Data will only be processed in function of previous mentioned objectives.

During the registration process, the User agrees explicitly to the processing of all of his or her personal data.
