On this page you will find everything having to do with privacy and user's data processing, including sensitive data. This page also describes how we share, store, collect and protect this data. Consequently, we recommend you to carefully read the entire content to avoid any concerns about privacy.
1.1 Our website/app offers some paid services such as « premium memberships » or « pay as you go » credits, which allow users to take full advantage of this service or benefit from special services and features. To get payments, we use professional and internationally reputable third party services, however we do not process, collect or store any sensitive data directly. How we handle this information depends largely on the third party services related to the payment method the user will use. Please refer to this third party service's policy about sensitive data management for more information.
2.1 When you create a valid profile on our website/app, these are the main personal information you provide:
This information is mandatory to have a valid profile.
Also we may optionally collect information about your contacts, see 2.4 below for more details..
2.1.1 You may also add a personal ad and a profile picture in your basic profile. This information is optional but people providing it are much more successful with other users.
2.1.2 Your mobile phone number is not part of your profile, you can provide it in your settings and, if so, it would only serve the purpose to further confirm your identity, it will never be visible in your profile, and we will not use it to call you or send you any unnecessary message.
2.1.3 Your first and last names are not part of your profile, you can specify them in your settings, and they are only used for accounting purposes, if you pay for any additional services. Again, they will never be visible on your profile, because they are not used in the context of our social media and its purposes.
2.1.4 Your email address:
126.96.36.199 Will be used to identify your account and for authentication purposes in combination with your password.
188.8.131.52 It will not be used to identify your profile. Your username will be used for this instead.
184.108.40.206 It will not be shown in your profile. Again, your username will be used for this.
220.127.116.11 Finally you shall not to specify your email address in your profile, our policies don't allow it, even if you would like to do so.
2.1.4 As you have already guessed, your username has the purpose to identify your profile on our website/app. It is the name that others will see and identify you by. Your username may be any name you want, as long as it is unique, including your real name, even if we don't recommend it.
2.1.5 Your birth date will only be used to determine your age, which will be displayed in your profile and search results. Your birth date will not be shown in your profile, only your age will, and it will only influence the way you get listed in any search result. That is, your profile will get listed if your age is in the range of ages searched in a simple or advanced search. Your age does not determine your score or the performance of your profile and does not impact the result of your own searches. For example, if you search for people from 25 to 35 years old, you will see all the people in this age range, even if you are not in the age range they usually search. Doing so would limit the search power of each user, and you should not forget that this site will not necessarily be used for dating, so age is a weak factor when it is not a direct search criteria.

2.3 This information will be part of your advanced profile, which is nothing more than additional information about you, you might specify if you want to customize more your use of Meetero.

2.3.1 However, most of the advanced profile information is optional, and you don't have to provide it if you don't want to. In addition, none of this will be used outside the scope of our website/app, and it will only serve to help you and others to better know each other.
2.3.2 Nothing of what you provide in your profile will be used for anything else, nothing of this will be shared with or sold to others.
