1.3. Meet2Talk Ensures Fair and Transparent Collection of Information

When we collect your personal information, we inform you of both the specific information that we collect as well as the purpose of collecting your personal information.

2. The Information We Collect

2.1 Consent

When you use our Service, you consent to the collection, use and sharing of your personal information under this Privacy Policy (which also includes our Cookie Policy).

Broadly speaking there are two categories of information we collect:

  1. information that we must have in order for you to use our Service; and
  2. information that we can use to provide additional features and improved experiences if you choose to share that information.

2.2 Information Collected to Use the Service

When you become a User, we collect certain information that you provide us with in order for you to use our Service. This information includes:

  • Your e-mail, name, city of residence, country of residence and your partners e-mail address (if you sign up as a spouse).

2.3 Information Meet2Talk May Collect to Provice Additional Featuees And Improved Experience

We may also collect information that enables us to offer you an improved, personalised and relevant experience and additional features, on our Service. We never receive any of this information unless you expressly choose to share it with us. This type of information includes, but is not limited to:

  • Nationality, languages you speak, interests, Skype username, birth year, previous postings etc.

2.4 When Does Meet2Talk Collect Your Information

The collection of information and data occurs when:

  • You register as a User, you connect to other Users, you post or chat, you update your profile and when you interact with other Users on the Service.

2.5 Meet2Talk Only Collects Relevant and Necessary Information

We only collect information that is relevant and sufficient in proportion to the purposes outlined above.

We only collect, process, and store information and data that is necessary in order to improve the platform and to ensure the quality of Service. Further, the law may determine the type of information that is necessary for us to collect and store. The type and scope of the personal information that we collect may also be necessary for the fulfilling of contractual obligations or other judicial obligations.

2.6 Updating Your Personal Data

Our ability to offer you the best service depends on the correctness of your information. We ask you to regularly update your profile. In that way, we are continuously updated on your personal information. You can amend and view much of the information we keep about you through your account and profile pages.

In case of any doubt, please do contact us.

2.7 Meet2Talk Deletes Your Personal Data when It Is Longer Necessary or Relevant

We delete your personal data when it is no longer relevant or necessary for the purposes outlined above.

  • If a user (a spouse or an employee) decides to cancel her og his profile, we keep a backup of the personal information belonging to this user for up to twelve months. After twelve months all personal information is deleted completely.

    We do this because we ask all our users to reconfirm every six months their connection to, and employment by, the member company. This is to ensure that employees and spouses on the platform are still with the member company and eligible for the service. Users confirm their connection to the company by clicking on a link in an email sent by Meet2Talk.
    If the user has forgotten to reconfirm the link in our e-mail, we will still be able to recreate the account, the connections, posts and questions etc. for the following six months.

  • If a company cancels their membership subscription, we keep a backup of the company information including spouse and employee profiles for up to twelve months. After twelve months all company information as well as all spouse and employee information is deleted completely.

    We keep a backup for up to twelve months after any cancellation in case the company should wish to sign up again within that period. In this way all deleted employee and spouse profiles will become active and signing up again will not be necessary.

2.8 Meet2Talk Will Ask For Your Consent before We Collect Your Personal Data

We will ask for your consent before we collect your personal data in accordance with the purposes outlined above, unless we have legal basis to collect the information without your consent. We will inform you of any such legal basis and our legitimate interest in processing your personal data.

Please note that your consent is optional and that you may, at any time, recall any given consent.

Further, you can change your information and cancel your user profile at any time. If you wish to do so, do note that we store your information for 12 months after the cancellation of your membership (see 2.7 above).

2.9 Meet2Talk Does Not Disclose Your Personal Information Without Your Consent

Information you give to external websites such as Facebook or Twitter complies with their terms and conditions. This also applies if you choose to connect your profile to external social media sites.

If we disclose your personal information to collaborators and other operators, for example for the use of marketing, etc., we ask for your consent and will inform you about the exact purpose of the disclosure. At any time, you may take exception to any such disclosure.

We reserve the right to use and treat information and data on our Service to generate statistics, analysis etc. We shall be permitted to use such the information in statistics, analysis, benchmarks etc. in anonymised form for commercial purposes. No personal information or data will be shared with any third party in this process.
