1.1. In General. When you use Gaydar, we automatically collect and store information about your computer or mobile device and your activities. We may collect information that can identify you including but not limited to your name, email address, mobile device ID number, your preferences, technical information about your computer and mobile device ("personal information") and other information that does not identify you. We may collect this information through a website or a mobile application. By using the Service, you are authorising us to gather, parse and retain data related to the provision of the Service. When you provide personal information through our Service, the information may be sent to servers located in the United Kingdom and countries around the world.
1.2. Information you provide. In order to become a Gaydar member, you will be asked to register. If you do so, you authorise us to collect your location information from your device when you download or use the Service. In addition, we may collect and store any personal information you provide while using our Service or in some other manner. This may include identifying information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and if you transact business with us, financial information. You may also provide us photos, a personal description and information about your gender and preferences for recommendations, such as search distance, age range and gender. If you chat with other Gaydar users, you provide us the content of your chats, and if you contact us with a customer service or other inquiry, you provide us with the content of that communication.
Most of our services do require a form of registration, however users do not need to register to visit our platform without registering. If you choose to proceed without personal data when registering, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site or for us to respond to your queries.
1.3. Access to Information. You have the right to request access to the information we have on you. You can do this by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make sure to provide you with a copy of the data we hold on file about you. In order to comply with your request, we may ask you to verify your identity.
We fulfil requests by sending you a copy electronically, unless the request expressly specifies a different method.
1.4. Information correction and Deletion. If you believe that the information we hold about you is incorrect, you are welcome to contact us so we can update it and keep your data accurate. However, most data held about you can be viewed and corrected by logging into your account and updating you information via you account settings. Any data that is no longer needed for the purposes specified in “How we use the information we collect” will be deleted. If at any point you wish for Connexions IP Limited to delete your information, you can contact us at email@example.com, or simply delete your account in the user account settings. Please note that information which we are required to keep for legal reasons, e.g. financial transactions, will not be deleted.
We use various technologies to collect information from your device and about your activities on our Service.
2.1. Information collected automatically. We automatically collect information from your browser or device when you visit our Service. This information could include your IP address, device ID and type, your browser type and language, the operating system used by your device, access times, your mobile device’s geographic location while our application is actively running, and the referring website address.
2.2. Cookies and Use of Cookie Data. When you visit our Service, we may assign your device one or more cookies to facilitate access to our Service and to personalize your experience. Through the use of a cookie, we also may automatically collect information about your activity on our Service, such as the pages you visit, the time and date of your visits and the links you click. If we advertise, we (or third parties) may use certain data collected on our Service to show you Gaydar advertisements on other sites or applications.
2.3. Pixel tags. We embed pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear GIFs) on web pages, ads, and emails. These tiny, invisible graphics are used to access cookies and track user activities (such as how many times a page is viewed). We use pixel tags to measure the popularity of our features and services. Ad companies also use pixel tags to measure the number of ads displayed and their performance (such as how many people clicked on an ad).
2.4. Mobile Device IDs. If you are using our app, we use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer) or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later), instead of cookies, to recognise you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our app. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone. Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use of the app, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about app usage.
2.5. Information collected by third-parties for advertising purposes. We may allow service providers, advertising companies and ad networks, and other third parties to display advertisements on our Service. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. We do not provide any non-anonymised personal information to third parties. Some of these third-party advertising companies may be advertising networks that may feature in services such as Your Online Choices, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies. Opting out will not decrease the number of advertisements you see.
2.6. WHENEVER YOU VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION ON PUBLICLY VIEWABLE SCREENS OR PAGES, THAT INFORMATION WILL BE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE AND CAN BE COLLECTED AND USED BY OTHERS! We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.
3.1. In General
We may use information that we collect about you to:
3.2. Job Applicants
3.2.1. If your personal information is submitted through our management website www.dragonstack.com when applying for a position with our company, the information will be used solely in connection with considering and acting upon your application. We may retain your personal information, but only for the purpose of considering your application for current or future available positions. This information, which may include your name and contact information, prior education and experience, and other information you may provide to us, may be shared with third-party service providers retained by us to collect, maintain and analyse candidate submissions for job postings.
3.2.2. In all circumstances, we may perform these functions directly or use a third-party service provider to perform these functions on our behalf, who will be obligated to use your personal information only to perform services for us.
3.3. Social Media
Also, if you access our Service from a third party social platform, such as Facebook, we may share non-personal information with that platform to the extent permitted by your agreement with it and its privacy settings.
4.1. Information Shared with Other Users
When you register as a member of Gaydar, your Gaydar profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Other members will be able to view information you have provided to us directly, any additional photos you upload, your profile name, your age, approximate number of miles away, your personal description, and information you have in common with the person viewing your profile.
4.2. Personal information
4.2.1. Service providers. We may share information, including personal and financial information, with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, ad tracking and analytics, member screenings, supporting our Service functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Service. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
4.2.2. Other Situations. We may disclose your information, including personal information:
Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information we collect and that is why we provide the opt-out links above. However, we do not recognise or respond to any DNT signals, as the Internet industry works toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
8.1. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Service because such information may be required in order for you to register as user; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions.
8.2. You can also control information collected by cookies. You can delete or decline cookies by changing your browser settings. Click “Help” in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions.
We take security measures to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorised access and disclosure. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, chats, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.
We provide areas on our Service where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others. Such postings are governed by our Terms and Conditions. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited email messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.
Although our Service is a general audience Service, we restrict the use of our service to individuals age 18 and above. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use personal information from individuals under the age of 18.
