How we collect, process and store information depends in part on how you use the Services. You may register to use the Services (“Registered User”). You can use some of the Services without creating an account (“Guest User”) or providing any information other than information that is automatically collected as explained below. The different categories of information we collect from you are described below.
We may collect information from you during your use of our Services such as your username, name, email, password, mobile phone number, date of birth and other information that you provide to our Service or allow us to access them.
We may also collect your activity log such as friends lists, interests lists, preferences or any other information that you make available while using our Services and consent to the collection and processing of that information.
We may automatically collect certain information about the computer or devices (including mobile devices) you use to access the Services, and about your use of the Services, even if you use the Services as a Guest User.
Device/Usage Information. We may collect information such as (a) IP addresses, unique device identifiers (e.g. IDFA or other device IDs on Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and other information about your mobile phone or other mobile device(s) browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the Services; and (b) information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services, such as: referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services, error logs, and other similar information. As described further below, we may use third party analytics providers and technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist us in understanding how our Services are used. Such tools may collect and use your data, after we have depersonalized it, with other Finda users’ data.
Location Information. We may collect general location information (e.g. IP address, zip code), and may use that information to customize the Services with location-based information, advertising, and features. By accessing and using the Services, you consent to this collection and processing of location information.
We may obtain additional information about you from affiliates and may combine that information with information, which we collect from or about you, and information derived from any other product or service we or our affiliates provide.
We use the information we receive from and about you for the following purposes:
If you are a Registered User, anyone who uses the Services is able to see your user name and any information posted on your profile.
You should not share personal information that might allow others to contact or locate you or other users and you should think before you post, as once posted the information becomes public.
Should you choose to leave Finda, you may do so by contacting us. Once your request is received, we will process it to leave as soon as practicable. Once processed, your profile data will be removed from the Services and your activity such as interests etc will be converted to anonymous. You will be able to reactivate your account by logging back in for a period of 30 days after your request to leave Finda is processed. At the end of that period your account will be deleted. We will delete your data as soon as reasonably practicable, but in certain cases limited types of data, including log files and backups, may take up to 90 days to be fully deleted.
Because you control your profile, you can see the personal information you've provided to us by accessing your “Profile” page, which gives you the option to correct or update your information at any time by just logging into the Services. Once you register, you will be able to change most of your personal information, including: your name; your country; your contact email address; your profile picture; and your password. You will not be able to change your birth date.
You have a right to request a copy of the information we hold about you. Such a request must be in writing. We will contact you to let you know what else we need from you before we send you a copy of your personal information. We reserve the right to charge the statutory fee (currently €6.35) to process such a request.
The Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect (or knowingly allow any third party to collect) personal information from persons under the age of 13. If we become aware that personal information has been collected from a person under the age of 13, we will delete this information and terminate the person’s account as quickly as possible. If you believe that we may have personal information from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us using the contact information below
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in writing.
