What happens to my data?

We realize that sexual fantasies are a very sensitive topic. As a result, you do not need to register and you connect to your partner anonymously via randomly generated codes.

So you always stay anonymous when using UnderCovers.

1) Scope of Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy informs users about the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider (“provider”, “we” or “us”)

Fine Software Factory UG (haftungsbeschränkt)
Mollstraße 1a

of this website and of the mobile application UnderCovers(“app”).
We reserve the right to make changes to this policy at any time. If we make any material changes to our privacy practices, we will post a revised Privacy Policy on this page.
This privacy policy is based on German privacy legislation, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act and the German Teleservices Act.

2) Collection and use of personal data from users of the website

a) Data access / server log files
The provider (or his internet provider) collects data on each access of the website (so called server log files). This data includes:

Name of the requested Web page, file, date and time of access, data volume transferred, notification of successful transmission, browser type and browser version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the internet provider of the user.

The provider uses the log files for statistical analysis with the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing the website. The provider retains the right to check the log data in case concrete evidence warrants reasonable suspicion of unlawful use.

b) Cookies
Cookies are small files, which allow saving specific, device related information on the user’s device (PC, smartphone, etc.). They are used for two purposes. First of all, they are used to improve the usability of websites (e.g. by saving log-in data). Secondly, they are used to collect data on the website usage and to analyze this data with the purpose of optimizing the website. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers grant the possibility to limit or prohibit storing cookies on your computer. However, this can limit the functionality of the website.

You can manage many cookies related to online advertising of companies via the U.S. website or the EU website

3) Collection and use of personal data from users of the mobile application UnderCovers

We cannot identify any specific person and, hence, we cannot determine the sexual fantasies of a specific person.

a) Separation of data
All data concerning sexual fantasies, listed under 3b) are stored separately from our shop data, listed under 3c) (they are stored on individual databases without mutual unique identifiers), given that they are transferred to us at all instead of being stored locally. Thus, even if a user leaves their name, address and other personalized data, we cannot assign these data to their sexual fantasies.

b) Data about sexual fantasies

We collect the following data relating to sexual fantasies:
1. Device Token for iOS devices or Device Registration ID for Android devices.
The data can be used to temporarily identify a device, not a person. This information is needed to send push notifications as well as to enable the Matching functionality of the app.
2. Indicated preferences for content
In order to make the matching with your partner as well as the collection of contents possible, we save all interactions with all contents represented in the app, e.g. what you like and what you pin. We also use these informations for statistical purposes, e.g. statistics that show how popular a certain item is; and in order to determine which item is shown next.
3. Result of the Matching (“Matches”))
As soon as the preferences of sexual fantasies of both partners are transmitted to the server, the matches are created automatically. A match is a match when both partners can imagine to try a certain e.g. fantasy (that is both partners have indicated their interests buy clicking on the “heart” button or on the “heart with question mark” button). Those matches are transmitted to both partners’ devices.
4. Personal data
In order to improve your user experience as well as for anonymous statistics, we save your gender, given that you indicate it before. That means if you indicate your gender in the app we assign it to your device token (iOS) or to your device registration (Android). In the future, it might be possible that we ask your further question concerning your personal data, e.g. your state/ province. These specifications are always optional.
The app does not secretly search for other information about you. You can see and change the given information at any time by clicking on “my profile” in the menu. Reminder: We only assign your data to your device, not your person. We do not have any possibilities to figure out the owner of the device.

We transmit the data mentioned in 3a to an external provider who is hosting our app in Germany. Apart from that, we do not transmit data to any third persons, except for anonymous statistics.

c) Data related to ordering processes
In case you order products via our app, you send us personal data (e.g. your name and addres). We solely use these data in order to handle your order. We store these data and data concerning your sexuality separately (see 3a).
In order to fulfil your order, we transmit your data to our logistics service provider Vinico e.K. We only transmit data that is necessary in order to process your order.

This app uses three external service providers to collect usage data. This data is used to optimize the stability and usability of the app.

The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there as an exception. On behalf of the operator of this app, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the app by users to compile reports on the app’s activities and to provide other services related to the use of the app and the internet. The IP address from your device provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent Google from capturing the generated data (including your IP address) related to their use of the app, as well as the processing of such data by Google. To do this, there is an option in the app at this point of the Privacy declaration.

3. Helpshift
The app uses the tool Helpshift in order to make it possible for the users to provide feedback. It provides data on the user’s smartphone, its operating system, and information on connectivity to help with technical problems. In addition, the name, the user is entered and optionally the e-mail address is transmitted.
