1.INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In order to help you develop meaningful connections, we need some information about you, such as basic profile details and the types of people you’d like to meet. We also collect information that you generate as you use our service, such as access logs. Here are additional more details:
When you download the App and create an account, we may collect certain information about you, such as:
Date of birth;
any other information you voluntarily provide us with in connection with your registering and using the Services.
You will also be required to create a password when you register for your account with us. You may voluntarily decide to provide us with information that may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, such as your gender identity, ethnicity, personal interests, relationships and preferences, health details and whether part of the POZ (HIV positive) community (for example, in creating or updating your profile), and content in certain photos. We do not require you to provide such sensitive information. Where you choose to provide us with such sensitive information, you are explicitly consenting to our processing of your information.Once you register, you will be able to review and change your registration information at any time by accessing your “Profile” page. You control your user profile and are able to correct or update your information at any time by just logging in to Sir+.The information we collect helps us help you to make meaningful connections, and helps to enhance the App and verify our Users.
2. Once Registered
We collect your insight into our Services in any voluntary surveys and focus groups. For example, you may respond to our questions or provide testimonials.
We collect any registration or other information related to promotions, events and contests.
If you contact our customer care team, we collect the information you give us during the interaction. Sometimes, we monitor or record these interactions for training purposes and to ensure a high quality of service.
If you ask us to communicate with or otherwise process information of other people (for example, if you ask us to send an email on your behalf to one of your friends), we collect the information about others that you give us in order to complete your request.
Of course, we also process your chats with other users as well as the content you publish, as part of the operation of the services.
3.Automatically Collected Information
We collect information about your activity on our Services, for instance how you use them (e.g., date and time you logged in, features you’ve been using, searches, clicks and pages which have been shown to you) and how you interact with other users (e.g., users you connect and interact with, time and date of your exchanges, number of messages you send and receive).
We may collect information about your device when you use the App, including the unique device identifier, device model, operating system and MAC address. Other Information with your consent
If you give us permission, we can collect your precise geolocation (latitude and longitude) through various means, depending on the service and device you’re using, including GPS, Bluetooth or WiFi connections. The collection of your geolocation may occur in the background even when you aren’t using the services if the permission you gave us expressly permits such collection. If you decline permission for us to collect your geolocation, we will not collect it.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION
The main reason we use your information is to deliver and improve our Services.
Additionally, we use your information to help keep you safe. We use your information for the following purposes:
offer you our Services and its features;
show users’ profiles to one another;
contact you with information about the App (e.g., updates and new offerings);
personalise the App and the content we deliver to you;

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
It’s our goal to help you make meaningful connections, so of course, the main sharing of your information is with other users. We also share some users’ information with service providers, and in some cases, with legal authorities. Here’s some additional information.
1.With Other Users
When you voluntarily disclose information on the Service (including your public profile), you share information with other users. Your geographic location and online status may also be visible on the App.
If you chose to limit the audience for all or part of your profile or for certain content or information about you, then it will be visible according to your settings. Regardless of the settings that you choose, DO NOT INCLUDE INFORMATION IN YOUR PROFILE OR OTHERWISE PROVIDE INFORMATION WHEN USING THE SERVICES THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP PRIVATE (EX: GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION, TRAVEL PLANS AND OTHER INFORMATION). For any content that you share, make sure that you’re comfortable with it being publically viewable, since neither you nor we can control what others do with it once you share it. Furthermore, some sophisticated users who use an App in an unauthorized manner may be able to obtain certain profile information that you’ve asked to be non-public. Consequently, assume that anything you post or submit on the App may be publicly-viewable and accessible, both by users of the App and non-users of the App.
2. With Our Service Providers
We use third parties to help us operate and improve our Services. We may share any information about you with these third parties, but only for the purposes of performing these functions and providing such services (e.g. data hosting, maintenance, analytics, customer care, marketing, security operations).
3. Business Transfers
We may transfer your information if we are involved, whether in whole or in part, in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy, or other change of ownership or control.
4.Law and Harm
We think it’s important that our members respect each other while using the App. We may disclose your information when we believe disclosure is necessary to comply with an order, subpoena, warrant or other legal requirement issued by a court, tribunal, regulator or other person with jurisdiction to compel disclosure of your personal information. We may disclose your information if reasonably necessary to assist in the prevention or detection of crime (subject in each case to applicable law), or to protect the safety of any person. We may cooperate with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other rights.
5.Enforce Legal Rights
We may also share information: (1) if disclosure would mitigate our liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (2) as necessary to protect our legal rights and legal rights of our users, business partners and other interested parties; (3) to enforce our agreements with you; and (4) to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing.
7. Your Consent
If you consent, we may otherwise share or disclose your information with third parties. In any such case, we will make it clear as to why we want to share the information.

1. we must keep it to comply with applicable law or to evidence such compliance;
2.there is an outstanding issue, claim or dispute requiring us to keep the relevant information until it is resolved; or
3.the information must be kept for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users’ safety and security. For example, we may need to keep information in order to prevent a user who was banned for unsafe behavior or security incidents from opening a new account.
