🗂️ What personal data do we collect, why do we collect it, and what legal basis do we rely on?
Personal data is anything that can identify an individual, either on its own or through combining it with other factors that could eventually identify an individual.
When you first use our app, we'll need some information about you, such as your name, email address, Facebook ID (if you join through Facebook), date of birth, relationship status, gender, sexuality, age, sexual preferences, location, user ID, profile photos and and any other information you may wish to add to your profile.
When completing your profile you can provide as much or as little detail as you see fit; however, the more detail you provide, the more you will get out of Feeld. We use this information to create your account and provide you with you an enjoyable customised experience and features that most likely meet your needs. The legal grounds we rely on for this are Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR - Legitimate Interests and Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR - Explicit Consent.
Where the use of your personal information by us requires your consent, you can provide such consent at the time of collection following the instructions provided or by informing us by email, post or phone using the contact details set out below in this privacy notice.
While you use the Feeld app, in order to send you push notifications, we will need to process a preview of your messages and will rely on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR - Legitimate Interests when doing so.
