II. Data processing of personal data

Personal data within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is all information that relates to an identified or at least identifiable natural person. This can be names, addresses, e-mail addresses, or IP addresses of the device or connection with which you use the website or the application.

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations and no other information on processing is subsequently provided.


III. Server Data

For technical reasons, e.g. to ensure a secure and stable website or application, data is transmitted to us or our server operator via your Internet browser. With these so-called server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our website (a so-called referrer URL), the website of our website or content through our application that you from our servers, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which our website or the application is used.

The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data from you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data will be deleted after 30 days at the latest, provided that no further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, the data will be completely or partially excluded from deletion until the final clarification of an incident and will be marked accordingly with a blocking notice (Article 4 No. 4 GDPR).


IV. User account

As soon as you register a user account via our application, the data you entered during registration (i.e. your chosen pseudonym, your e-mail address, your IP address, gender and date of birth) will only be used for pre-contractual services, for the fulfillment of the contract collected and stored in accordance with the agreed terms of use or for the purpose of customer care. At the same time, we then save the IP address and the date of your registration along with the time. This data is not passed on to third parties.

The data is stored exclusively on servers within Cyprus.

As part of the registration process, consent to this processing is obtained and reference is made to this data protection declaration. The data we collect is used exclusively to provide the user account.

If you consent to this processing when registering, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing.

The storage and processing of the pseudonym, age and gender specified during registration is used by the operator for evaluation within the framework of the service and for the group categorization of user contributions. In this way, other users can create reviews of the posts and popular posts can be highlighted. The legal basis for the processing required for the execution of the contract is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Before you can use paid services on the platform for the first time, you must enter a valid e-mail address for your user account in addition to the existing user account. The storage and processing is absolutely necessary for the contract execution of the payment transactions and assignment to a user profile, the legal basis is therefore Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR.

If the initial registration of the user account is also used for pre-contractual measures, the legal basis for this processing is also Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

You can revoke your consent to the creation and maintenance of the user account at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation (e.g. by e-mail).

The collected personal data will be deleted as soon as the processing is no longer necessary. If legal retention periods for personal data are to be observed by the operator, your personal data will not be deleted but blocked until the statutory retention period has expired (restriction of processing by appropriate blocking marking, Art. 4 No. 3 GDPR).


V. Public posts and comments

When using the website via a user account, you can publish contributions (entries with text, images and videos, as well as comments) within the framework of the terms of use agreed upon when registering the user account. Your contribution will then be published with the date and time of submission as well as your chosen pseudonym, gender and age.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation (e.g. by e-mail).

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address with which the post was created. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in taking steps or supporting prosecuting authorities if your contribution violates the rights of third parties and/or violates applicable legal standards.

In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in any legal defense that may be necessary.


VI. In-App Analysis

In order to optimize the user experience and to ensure the security of our app, we use the voluum.com tool to analyze usage of the app. This is a service provided by Codewisespólka z ograniczonaodpowiedzialnoscia Sp. K., Lubicz 17 G, 31 – 503 Kraków, Poland.

The analysis data of the tool for using the app is collected, processed and stored exclusively on our own servers.

These only include browser data of the accessing device, as well as the time of access and the IP address of the accessing device.

The provider itself is subject to the data protection law of the European Union.

The legal basis for the analysis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR for the points system and Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR for the rest. Our legitimate interest lies in providing the points system, improving the quality of the application and ensuring security.


VII. In-App Ads

The application sometimes displays advertising banners from advertising partners. The advertising banners are links to a page of the advertising partner. If the user clicks on the advertising banner, he is directed to the website of the advertising partner via the device's own browser. Analysis data or other data collected and stored by the operator will not be passed on to the respective advertising partner.
For advertisements, we use the advertising partner Google Inc. with its tool AdMob, which collects personal data such as device IDs, GPS data, demographic data, etc. in order to be able to display advertising that is relevant to you. For more details on the data collected by Google AdMob, see Google's privacy policy https://www. google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can give your consent in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO revoked at any time with effect for the future. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation (e.g. by e-mail).

VIII. Use of payment service providers

With certain payment methods, you will be redirected to a website of the respective payment service provider as part of the payment process. The data is then processed by the payment service provider. You can find out more about how your personal data is handled on their website.

If the user wishes to pay by credit card, it may be necessary to state the first and last name in connection with the address. This data is stored on our servers and forwarded to the respective credit card institutes involved.

Insofar as your IP address is a referrer for the payment process, your e-mail address is necessarily passed on to the respective payment service provider for execution by the operator to the payment service provider. The legal basis for the transmission of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
