Before we tell you why, when, how and what kind of personal data Flirtu collects and processes about users, let me explain some basic concepts regarding the protection of personal data. We believe that in this way you will get a better understanding and understanding of why Flirtu acts in the chosen way when processing personal data.

Personal data
Personal data is any information about an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject). An identifiable natural person is a natural person who can be directly or indirectly identified, in particular by reference to a specific identifier (name, number, network identifier) or to one or more specific elements of a physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of a given individual.
Data subject
The data subject is a natural person to whom personal data relate and who can be identified by personal data or who is identifiable.
Special categories of personal data
This is a new designation for confidential personal data. We are talking about such personal data that, by themselves, may cause harm to the data subject in society, at work, at the university, or may lead to discrimination. Such personal data usually reflects racial or ethnic origin, political views, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or genetic and biometric data is processed to uniquely identify an individual and data about the individual's health, sex life or sexual orientation.
Personal data administrator
The administrator is a natural or legal person who determines the purposes and means for processing personal data and is primarily responsible for the processing. Unless otherwise stated in these principles or terms for a particular service, Flirtu is the data controller.
Personal data operator
The operator is a natural or legal person who, on the basis of the instructions of the administrator, processes personal data for the administrator.
Personal data processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations that are performed with personal data or arrays of personal data with or without the use of automatic procedures, such as collection, recording, systematization, structuring, storage, clarification or modification, search, viewing, use, access when transmission, distribution or any other provision of access, ordering or combination, limitation, deletion or destruction.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Flirtu is a service for people who have reached the age of eighteen, the main purpose of which is to meet and communicate with new people. You can use the services that we provide in different ways: through the Telegram mobile application for the Android or iOS platform.

To become a Flirtu user, you need to create a profile. During registration, we may ask you to provide the following information: name, email address, gender, date of birth, your location. You can also provide other information about yourself by entering it in your profile, but these are not required. You control your profile and have permanent access to this data in the "Profile" section on Flirtu, where all data can be corrected or updated (except for the identification number - id).

Please be careful when posting personal information such as your health or sexual orientation on your profile. Please be aware that photos or videos you post on Flirtu may disclose this kind of personal information. If you provide or upload personal information about yourself, you consent to its processing and publication in the public domain.

In the interests of security and in order to improve the user experience, the user's personal profile is linked to his Telegram account. This is only necessary to ensure that the personal profile belongs to you. We also fight against the creation of fake accounts that can be used to harm other users, as well as to commit cybercrimes - such accounts pose a threat to the Flirtu community and prevent other users from enjoying communication. We use your Telegram account data based on the above legitimate interests and to prevent fraud and cybercrime.

If you purchase any premium services while using Flirtu, we will process your payment information and store it securely for fraud prevention and audit and / or tax purposes. In accordance with data protection law, we need to collect and process this payment data in order to fulfill our obligations to you, the storage of this data is justified by our legitimate interests outlined above.

In order to provide users with a free, non-premium service, we process a number of data (demographic data and location) in order to attract targeted advertising in our legitimate interests, including the transfer of such data to advertisers. In your device's security settings, you also have the ability to prevent or restrict device identifiers that will be shared with third-party advertisers and how these identifiers are used.

We use SSL security protocol. The Merchant will not sell, buy, provide, exchange or otherwise disclose Account or Transaction data, or personal information or information about the Cardholder to anyone other than the Acquirer, Visa / Mastercard Corporation (or other payment systems used) or in response to current government demands.

Anonymous information about activity on Flirtu is stored longer for statistical data and market research, but it is not associated with you after you delete the profile, that is, it becomes anonymous. This is due to the fact that Flirtu strives to develop its services and opportunities for more convenient communication and such a period is justified by our legitimate interest.

If we deleted your profile because you violated our minimum age rule, we may store your email and IP addresses so that you do not try to circumvent our rules by creating a new one.
