Privacy Policy

1. Processing manager

BUIDEN is very concerned with the protection of your personal data and the respect of your privacy. This privacy policy is meant to inform you on the way we process the personal data you share with us and that we collect when you use the Application and Services. We invite you to carefully read this document to better understand how we process your personal data, and to know your rights.

This Privacy Policy is applicable to all Services created by BUIDEN that you use (with the exception of services supplied and operated by third parties, in which case, their privacy policy applies).

2. The information we collect

Your use of our Services makes it likely that we collect and process data necessary to the proper functioning of the Application and to the supply of the Services. It can be information you share with us directly, or data we collect automatically.

2.1 Data you share directly

When you use our Services, you are required to share some information, some of which may serve to identify you. When you communicate this information, you accept that some of it will be visible to the other Members of the Application, and therefore be made public on the Application. In an effort to help you identify this information easily, it is signaled as “public” below. BUIDEN cannot be held liable for data published on its platform and disclosed by a Member. The information you share contains the following data:

Registration data: this is the basic data that is necessary for you to register and access our Services. This identity data is:

  • Your photo (public): Your birthdate (private): only your age, as deduced from the birthday, will be visible to other members.
  • Your gender (public)
  • Your first name (public)
  • Your last name (public)
  • Your company (public)
  • Your title (public)
  • About You (public)

You may add additional information to improve your Profile. This information is optional, shared at your own discretion, and is your sole responsibility. Your profile description (public): If you would like to, you can share additional information about you in the space provided for this purpose. This information will be visible to BUIDEN Members. BUIDEN does not encourage Members to share data that can be perceived as sensitive with other Member, or with BUIDEN through the Application. Sensitive data refers to data that is legally qualified as “sensitive” by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). More specifically, it includes information on race or ethnicity, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or affiliation with a union, along with information on health, sexual life or sexual preferences (“Sensitive Data”). If a Member decides to share such information on his/her profile regardless, it is deemed to have been “clearly made public” by the Member who shared it, according to the GDPR.

Data on your interactions with BUIDEN: we may ask you to share, or you may be in a situation where you need to give us information, for example when you contact our customer or support services, report an issue with our services, ask for help, exercise your personal data rights, or participate in a promo, game, contest, raffle, or survey, when you share your experience with our services, give testimonies, or answer one of our questionnaires.

2.2 Data we collect automatically

When you use our services and features, we collect information regarding your activity on the Application:

Activity data: when you access our Services and use the Application and its features, data on the way you use them may be collected and processed. More specifically, this includes your registration date, last connection etc.

Location Data (geolocation):the Application’s main value and purpose is to allow Members to find other Members. You will be asked to authorize the collection and processing of your location data (always or while using application) to allow BUIDEN to identify your distance to other Members who agreed to be geolocated. BUIDEN can, if you deliberately agree, access your position, approximatively or more precisely depending on the technology. BUIDEN does not recreate the movements and/or itineraries of its Members, and would like to remind you that it only keeps distance between Members. The exact position or the itinerary of a Member is never available to the other Members. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time and disable your smartphone’s geolocation option.

Data on the use of the messaging service: sent messages are stored on BUIDEN’s servers. Messages are strictly private and only implicate the Members involved. BUIDEN’s authorized managers do not hold or exercise any rights to view these conversations, except in cases of judicial request, and/or in compliance with legislative or administrative dispositions. Additionally, Messages are strictly private and are not accessible to other Members not involved in the conversation, nor to any third party.

Search preferences data: The Application lets you set search preferences for age gender,name,company and title. You can change these settings in the Application to meet your search criteria. You will then only see the Members you are looking for.

3. How we use the data collected

The data collected by BUIDEN allows us to provide the Services and make sure the Application is running smoothly, which it is contractually obligated to do, in virtue of the contract biding us with the Members (Terms of Service). Your data is therefore processed for the following purposes:

  • Creating and managing your Member Account (including managing access to the Services and the customer or support services);
  • Geolocating to suggest Profiles of Members;
  • Managing and storing messages exchanged between Members;
  • Sending information messages regarding the Services or your interactions with other Members (notifications);

The data collected is also necessary to BUIDEN fulfilling its legitimate interests (improving and optimizing its services, along with gaining a better knowledge of its Members and the ways in which they use the Services) and allow the company to run statistical studies, satisfaction surveys, and marketing analyses relating to the use of the Application and Services by the Members.

As the data processing relies on the consent of Members to have their data processed, they can withdraw it at any time; withdrawal of the consent does not affect processing carried out before the withdrawal. BUIDEN may process Members’ personal data in response to a legal request (search warrant, court order, or the like) or to comply with its legal, regulatory, judicial, or administrative obligations. Lastly, BUIDEN can process your personal data to uncover or prevent fraudulent activities or breaches to the Service’s safety, in compliance with the law, or analyze reports of Members displaying a behavior breaching the Terms of Service.

4. How data is shared

Only certain BUIDEN employees from the customer or support services, and authorized managers process Members’ personal data for the purposes described above. These employees and authorized managers only have access to the data necessary to perform their duties.

BUIDEN may also enter into agreements with authenticated and reliable service providers and partners, who may access and/or process Members’ personal data, in compliance with the Privacy Policy, and while ensuring the safety and privacy of the Members’ personal data. These service providers and partners help us run and improve our Services, especially with regards to data hosting, surveys, analyses and statistics, the use and/or proper functioning of the Application, and providing the necessary assistance to Members, marketing and advertisement to send offers, messages, and relevant content to BUIDEN Members.
