Purpose of the Policy: This Policy describes how Fantasy (“us,” “we” or “the app”) collects, uses, discloses and otherwise processes the personal data you provide by using the Fantasy application on iOS or the Fantasy website (collectively referred to as the “Service”).

Notice concerning children: We require users of the Service to be at least 18 years of age. We do not intend for anyone under the age of 18 to use any of the features or services we offer from the Service and we do not knowingly collect personal data from anyone under the age of 18. Children should not be dating online. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If you suspect that a user is under the age of 18, please use the report profile mechanism available through the Service.

1. PURPOSES OF PROCESSING

As used in this Policy, “personal data” is as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 and any successor legislation, which includes any information which, either alone or in combination with other information we hold about you, identifies you as an individual, including, for example, your name, email address and telephone number. We need certain personal data in order to provide you with access to our Service. To process your personal data as outlined below, we rely on the following legal bases:

Contractual Performance: The primary reason we process your personal data is to perform the contract that you have with us. For example, as you use our Service, we use your personal data to provide your account, to make it visible to other users and to recommend other users to you.

Legitimate Interests: We may also use your personal data where we have legitimate interests to do so. For instance, we review users’ actions while using our Service to improve our Service and we process personal data for administrative, fraud detection and other legal purposes.

Consent: We may also ask for your consent to use your personal data for specific reasons. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us as set out at the end of this Policy.

 

2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

In using the Service, you are required to provide personal data to verify that you are the specific person you say you are. This personal data can include but is not limited to your Facebook profile, email or phone number. Your profile consists of your name as well as other data you provide including gender, age, relationship status, sexuality, pictures, stories, fantasies, lifestyle choices and location.

Your ‘Search filter’ allow us to match you with relevant people. You may choose to share this personal data with other members, which includes but is not limited to name, gender, age, sexuality, location, fantasies and lifestyle choices. Some of the personal data you choose to provide us may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, for example sexuality or secret fantasies (“Sensitive Personal Data”). By choosing to provide this personal data, you consent to our processing of that data.

We may collect and store information about you in connection with your use of the Service, including any information you transmit to or through the Service. We use that information to provide the Service’s functionality, fulfill your requests, improve the Service’s quality, engage in research and analysis relating to the Service, personalize your experience, track usage of the Service, market the Service, provide customer support, message you, back up our systems, allow for disaster recovery, enhance the security of the Service, and comply with legal obligations. Even when we do not retain such information, it still must be transmitted to our servers initially and stored long enough to process.

Please also note:

  1. Information collected automatically: When you use the Service we may collect some personal data about you automatically. This personal data includes but is not limited to: app version and build number, attribution campaign and source, authentication state, push token, device OS and version, device model, latitude and longitude, signup date, payment date, and first subscription date, browser type, type of computer or mobile device, browser language, IP address, WiFi information such as SSID, mobile carrier, phone number, unique device identifier, advertising identifier, location (including geolocation, beacon based location, and GPS location), and requested and referring URLs. If you sign up through Facebook, this personal data also includes: DOB, email, Facebook ID, first and last name, and gender. If you sign up through your phone number, this includes your phone number. This personal data allows us to diagnose bugs - for example knowing you are on an old version of Fantasy– as well as detect fraud. This personal data also allows us to send push notifications if you choose to opt into those communications. We may also receive and store your location whenever our mobile applications are running, including when running in the background, if you enable our mobile apps to access such information in the course of using the Service. You may be able to limit or disallow our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings, for example by adjusting the "Location Services" settings for our applications in iOS privacy settings.
  2. Account Information: If you create a Fantasy account, we may store and use the information you provide during that process, such as your name and other information you may provide with your account, such as your name, gender, age, sexuality, relationship status, fantasies. We may publicly display your name, age, sexuality, photos, public fantasies, public stories, as part of your account profile. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account depicting you or your likeness, please use the report profile mechanism available through the Service.
  3. Public Content: Your contributions to the Service are intended for public consumption and are therefore viewable by the public, including your name, photos, age, sexuality, relationship status, public fantasies and stories. Your account profile (e.g., photos, age, sexuality, relationship status, public fantasies and stories) is also intended for public consumption, as is some of your other activity through the Service, like stories and your comments on stories of other profiles. We don’t publicly display your secret fantasies. 
  4. Contacts: You can invite others to join Fantasy by providing us with their contact information, or by allowing us to access your contacts from your computer, mobile device, or third party sites to select which individuals you want to invite. If you allow us to access your contacts, we may transmit that information to our servers long enough to process your invitations.
  5. Communications: When you sign up for an account or use certain features, you are opting to receive messages from other users, businesses profiles, and us. You cannot opt out of receiving certain administrative, transactional, or legal messages from us. We may also track your actions in response to the messages you receive from us or through the Service, such as whether you deleted, opened, or forwarded such messages. If you exchange messages with others through the Service, we may store them in order to process and deliver them, allow you to manage them, and we may review and disclose them in connection with investigations related to use of the Service, as well as our efforts to improve the Service. We may not deliver messages that we believe are objectionable, such as spam messages, fraudulent solicitations, or requests for paid services. If you send or receive messages through the Service via SMS text message, we may log phone numbers, phone carriers, and the date and time that the messages were processed. Carriers may charge recipients for texts that they receive. We may also store information that you provide through communications to us, including from phone calls, letters, emails and other electronic messages, or in person. If you are a representative of a business account, we may contact you, including by phone or email, using the contact information you provide us, make publicly available, or that we have on record for your business. Our calls with you may be monitored and recorded for quality purposes.
  6. Transactions: If you initiate a transaction through the Service, such as a purchase, we may collect and store information about you, such as your name, phone number, address, email, and payment information (such as a credit card number and expiration date), as well as any other information you provide to us, in order to process your transaction, send communications about them to you, and populate forms for future transactions. This information may be shared with third parties, and third parties may share such information with us, for the same purposes. When you submit credit card numbers, we encrypt that information using industry standard technology.
  7. Activity: When you use the Service, we may collect personal data as you take actions within the Service, such as users whom you liked or disliked, whom you have interacted with and how you use the Service. This may include but is not limited to passing, liking, commenting, messaging, blocks and other reports, your search activity, the screens you view, the date and time of your visit. Collecting this information allows us to provide the service and helps us improve our Service by refining our recommendation algorithm, diagnosing bugs or issues, developing new features, and monitoring for behavior that violates our Terms of Service. This information is also used for financial reporting.

If you choose to opt-out of automated decision-making and profiling, we will not be able to provide our Service and you will be prompted to delete your account. We do not otherwise use your personal data for the purposes of automated decision-making. However, we may do so in order to fulfill obligations imposed by law, in which case we will inform you of any such processing and provide you with an opportunity to object.

Standard contractual clauses are commitments between companies transferring personal data, binding them to protect the privacy and security of your data.

We use various safeguards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
