1. Information Collected By Us

In order for you to access all of the services that Wandure has to offer, we need to gather some of your  personal information. The information we collect falls into three general categories.

1.1 Category 1: Information You Provide.
When you use the Wandure Platform, you choose to give us certain information.  Some of this information is provided as a condition of use, while some is provided of your own volition.  You understand that you may provide and/or be asked to provide such information at any time during your use of the Wandure platform.

- Your full name, email address, date of birth, and gender are required when you register a Wandure Account.  Other information, including without limitation your interests and your goals in using the Wandure Platform, may also be required.

- To use some of Wandure’s features, you may need to provide further details such as: your city or other location, phone number, and personal description.  Certain elements of your profile (such as your profile picture(s), first name, and personal description) will be publicly visible to others.  Additionally, some of the information you choose to provide us may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, for example your racial or ethnic origins, sexual orientation and religious beliefs.  By choosing to provide this information, you consent to our processing of that information.
- To maintain a secure and transparent environment, we may ask you to verify your identity via real-time photographs and/or via a photograph of your government-issued ID, national ID card, passport, or driver’s license and/or other necessary authentication information.
- In order to have an Activity booked on your behalf, you must provide some financial information.  This involves bank account and/or credit card information that is necessary to process payments and to comply with applicable laws.  Other related authentication information such as your billing address and phone number may be required to process payments via Stripe.  Additionally, in certain regions (specifically, but not exclusively, in Europe), we may require your IBAN (International Bank Account Number) details.
- We may gather information when you use the Wandure Platform to communicate with us or with any Wandure User. 
- When choosing to fill out forms, take part in promotions or surveys, run a search, update your information on your Wandure account, or use any other services over, through, or within the Wandure Platform, you are choosing to provide us with information.
- When you are a member of a couple, partnership, or group, or for referral purposes, or for fraud detection/prevention purposes, you may choose to share information about other User(s) with us.
1.2 Category 2: Automatic Collection of Information When You Use Our Services.
When you use the Wandure Platform, some information is collected automatically.  We collect information related to any interactions you may have with the Wandure Platform, including related to any searches performed by you, the content you view, how long you view this content, any Match you may have confirmed, and any other information regarding your use of the Platform.

- We may collect information regarding your general location via your IP address and/or more specific location information using your device’s GPS services. This allows for improved services and further increases the security of our users. Your device’s location services can easily be modified through your device’s settings menu.
- We collect log information from the Wandure Platform.  This information may include, without limitation: specifics about how you’ve used the Wandure Platform (including by accessing links to third party applications or tools), the time you accessed the Platform and duration of your session, your IP address, hardware and software specifications and configuration information related to the device(s) you used to access the Wandure Platform, and event information from those device(s) (e.g., crash reports).
- When performing transactions through the Wandure Platform, we collect information such as the time and date of the transaction, the amount being processed, the expiration date of payment method and the postal code of the billing address, and other payment-related details.
- In the future, we may introduce and use cookies and other similar technologies.  We may enable other affiliate businesses to use these technologies on the Wandure Platform and/or enable some of those affiliate businesses to track your behaviour on our behalf.  Some web browser applications provide a “Do Not Track” (DNT) feature, which prevents tracking of the user’s activity.  DNT signals are not yet uniform and some browsers don’t have this feature. For this reason, Wandure does not currently comply with DNT signals.

1.3 Category 3: Information Collected from Others.
In addition to the information you choose to provide us with, we also collect information from other third party sources and/or services.  We are not responsible for the way in which these third parties disclose your information.  We recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies and terms of service of any third party with which you interact.
- You may link/connect your Wandure Account to a third party service (e.g., Facebook, Google, and/or Instagram), or register or log into your Wandure Account using such a third party service.  These third party services may share your registration and profile information with us.  The type and amount of information provided to us by such services varies and is completely controlled by those parties and as authorised by you, in your privacy settings for that service.
- If you use the Wandure Platform in Canada, Wandure may use your information, including without limitation your full name and date of birth, to obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registration, to the extent permitted by applicable laws.
- Wandure may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from other third party service providers and/or partners, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

All information shared is stored in hosted cloud storage, currently provided by Google Cloud Services, the terms and policies of which may be found at  Wandure reserves the right to change storage providers or methods at any time, for any reason, without advance notice to any User.  Additionally, the terms and policies of the hosting provider may be subject to change at any time and without notice.  Your use of the Wandure Platform constitutes acceptance of these terms.

3.1 With Your Consent.

3.2 Sharing between Users and Date Venues
To help facilitate bookings, we may share your information with Users and Date Venues as follows:

- When you are presented to another User as a potential Match, that User will see your public profile page and any information you have entered for that page (potentially including Images and interest information).  If you and the other User both confirm that you wish to accompany each other on an Activity, you and that other User will have access to a messaging system integrated with the Wandure Platform.  Communication with that other User over the messaging system will be available starting from a predetermined time before the commencement of that Activity.  Any information you choose to share on, over, through, or within the integrated messaging system is entirely at your discretion and out of our control.
- When Wandure makes a booking request for an Activity on your behalf, certain information about you is shared with the Date Venue providing that Activity.  This information may include, without limitation, your first name, your cancellation history, and other information you agree to share.  When the Date Venue accepts the booking request, we may disclose additional information about you to the Date Venue.
- Any information that is shared between two Users during an Activity, or between either or both of those Users and anyone connected with a Date Venue, is shared entirely at the discretion of those persons, and is out of our control.

We don’t share your billing and payment information with other Users, with Date Venues, or with anyone else, except as expressly provided herein.

3.3 Information Visible to the General Public.

The Wandure Platform lets you publish information that is visible to the general public. 

For example:
- Some parts of your public profile page are visible to others.  This may include, without limitation, your first name, your personal description, and your city.
- If or when you submit content in a public forum or social media post, that content is publicly visible.

Information that is being shared publicly on the Wandure Platform can be indexed via third parties.  In certain scenarios, you may be able to opt-out of such indexing using your Wandure Account settings.  If or when you change your settings and/or your publicly viewable content, these third parties may not update their databases.  Thus, the third parties may continue to use old, outdated, and/or now-hidden content, and/or may use caches containing such content. Such use is not within Wandure’s jurisdiction.  We do not have any control over practices of third party search engines.

3.4 Service Providers.

Affiliation with a variety of third party service providers allows us to provide services related to the Wandure Platform.  Service providers may be located inside or outside of Canada.  In some cases these third parties may be located inside or outside the European Economic Area (EEA).  Some of the service providers may help us verify or authenticate your identification, check information against public databases, assist us with background checks, fraud prevention, and risk assessment, and/or provide customer service, advertising, or payments services.  In order for these providers to aid us with these tasks or perform these tasks on our behalf, we may be required to grant them limited access to your personal information.  All such third party service providers are contractually obligated to adhere to this Privacy Policy and to our instructions.

3.5 Wandure Payments.

In particular, to be able to provide payment services, and to offer you other services/products via third parties (any of whom would have an agreement with us as described in Section 3.4), Wandure may share your personal and/or payment information.

3.6 Compliance with the Law.

If it is necessary and/or required by law, Wandure may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement, and/or governmental entities, and/or to any authorized third parties.  Possible reasons for such disclosure may include, without limitation:

- to adhere to legal requirements and/or to respond to any claims made against Wandure;
- to respond to verifiable requests surrounding criminal investigations and/or alleged/illegal activity that may expose us, our Users, Date Venues, and/or our business partners to legal liability;
- to make sure our agreements (including without limitation our Terms of Service) are being enforced;
- to prevent fraud and/or to aid in investigations surrounding fraud, assessment of risk, and/or customer support; and
- to defend the rights and personal safety of Wandure, any of Wandure’s employees or Users,  anyone connected in any way with any Date Venue, or any other member of the public.

When such disclosure is to be made, we will notify any affected User(s) of such disclosure, unless:

- we are legally not allowed to do so by the process itself; and/or
- at our sole discretion, we conclude that giving such notice would negatively affect any individual(s) (including, though not limited to, by increasing a chance of injury and/or bodily harm), or that giving such notice may increase a risk of fraud related to Wandure’s property, its Users, any Date Venue(s), and/or the Wandure Platform.

In scenarios where we are not granted the right to notify the affected User(s) in advance of such disclosure, we will try to notify the affected User(s) about such disclosure after the fact, provided that we are no longer legally prohibited from so doing and that we conclude it is safe to do so.

3.8 Widgets.

We may display parts of the Wandure Platform on sites being operated by our partners, using technologies such as widgets or APIs.  In such situations, some information from public profile pages may also be displayed.

3.9 Tax Authorities.

As stated in our Terms of Service, any Date Venue is solely responsible for determining their own obligation to report, collect, remit, or include in their Activity Cost any applicable taxes, including, without limitation, direct and indirect sales taxes, occupancy taxes, tourist and/or other visitor taxes, and income taxes. 

3.10 Business Transfers.

If at any point in time, Wandure is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or bankruptcy event, we may be forced to sell, share, or transfer some or all of our assets. Your information is included in our assets, and thus, in some situations, we may be required to sell, share, or transfer some or all of your information.  We will notify you of any such situations in advance, via the Wandure Platform and/or an email address associated with your Wandure Account.
