HOW THE INFORMATION IN THE VIRALKISS® PLATFORM IS SHARED:
Users of the VIRALKISS® platform, use our Services to connect and share content with other users within the VIRALKISS® platform.
The information within the platform can be shared in a controlled manner:
When a user shares content and communicates with other users using our Services, the user selects the audience that may see and benefit what the user shares. For example, when editing a personal video on the VIRALKISS® platform, the user selects the audience for the post, which can be a select group of people (your kissing friends in the KISSBOX), or all users of the VIRALKISS® platform (all users in the public BAKEKA).
Public information is the data that you share with all users of the VIRALKISS® platform in his/her public profile (in the public BAKEKA).
Public information is available within our Services and you can see this only if the user has regularly registered on the VIRALKISS® platform and is a Member of a referenced Association.
In some cases, users with whom you share content can share this content again with other users, but only within our Services and if authorised by you.
The videos and content already present within the VIRALKISS® platform "Area Subcategories":
•May be marked as favourites and may be viewed within the KISSBOX of the user.
•May be viewed in the "sent" and "received" area within the user's personal KISSBOX (Identifying the sender and the recipient is your purely your prerogative, namely, your kissing friends in KISSBOX may see the videos you have sent or received but not who you sent them to or who you received them from).
•They can be shared by the user or by a FRIENDKISS with other users subscribed to the platform.
The videos and personal content uploaded by the user within the VIRALKISS® platform:
•Cannot be marked as favourites, but can be displayed within the personal KISSBOX or public notice board (according to the choice of how to share).
•Can be displayed in the "sent" and "received" areas within the user's personal KISSBOX but cannot be shared by other users (e.g. a KISSFRIEND cannot send your PERSONAL KISS to other users but can only view and mandatorily vote).
•Can be shared with other users by the user who uploaded them.
Users can also see some information about a personal profile that other KISSFRIEND users have inserted in the VIRALKISS® platform.
SUPPLIERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND OTHER PARTNERS:
If the user grants us permission (accept the PRIVACY DISCLAIMER of the Association), we may transfer information to vendors, service providers and other partners that support the VIRALKISS® platform globally, for example by providing technical infrastructure services, analysing how our Services are used, measuring the effectiveness of advertisements and services, providing assistance, facilitating payments or conducting academic research and surveys. These partners must respect the privacy obligations without contravening the present Legislation on data and the agreements that we enter into with them.
MANAGING AND DELETING USER INFORMATION:
The data will remain stored within the VIRALKISS® platform until the account is deleted. The removed content may be stored in backup copies for a specified period of time (although not visible to others) according to the Association's archival purposes for reference and according to the law in force. When the account is disabled, we do the utmost to avoid it still being visible. If the user wants to delete the account he or she can do so at any time, but it must be sequential with the request to resign from the relative Association. The Non-Profit Association for Social Development "LEZIONI DI BACIO" and VIRALKISS® are not responsible for any information, photography, video, comment or any content deleted from our systems by means of account deactivation.
Upon account deletion, published content will be removed unless such contents have not been shared with third parties, and that these have not eliminated them.
WARNING: even after removing all information from the profile, or after deleting the account, copies of these data may still be visible and / or accessible to the extent in which the information has been previously shared. These data could also have been somehow copied and stored by other members or available on search engines. VIRALKISS® cannot control these situations, therefore it will not accept responsibility.
LEGAL CLAIMS AND RISK REDUCTION:
We can access user information and store them and share them in response to a legal request if we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so. The above may include the response to requests from jurisdictions outside those in Italy, if we have reason to believe that this is made mandatory by the local law of the jurisdiction in question, with regard to users who respond to such jurisdiction and comply with standards recognised at the international level.
Additionally, we can access the information and store them and share them if we believe in good faith that this is necessary to: detect, prevent and manage fraud and other illegal activities; protect the property of the platform, the user and other persons, including investigations; preventing events that could lead to imminent bodily harm or death.
We can provide information on the reliability of the accounts of users to third party partners to prevent fraud and improper use inside and outside of our Services. When we receive information about users, including data related to financial transactions of donations made through the VIRALKISS® platform, these can be accessed, processed and stored for an extended period of time when they are the subject of legal proceedings, of a government investigation or investigations concerning possible violations of our conditions or regulations or to avoid damage. We can also store the information in the account of disabled users who do not meet our conditions for at least one year in order to avoid the recurrence of improper use or other violations of our conditions.
The Non-Profit Association for Social Development "LEZIONI DI BACIO" along with VIRALKISS® adopt the appropriate security measures to help protect user information from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, or disclosure. The security measures put in place protect the confidentiality of personal information via for example the use of secure servers, equipped with firewalls. Unfortunately no website, application or network protocol is 100% secure, so it is not possible to guarantee that unauthorised access will never occur, nor attacks by hackers, data loss or other types of violations. To protect the security of your data, we recommend:
•Always making sure to exit from the Account before closing VIRALKISS®;
•Never share your password with anyone;
•Change your password periodically.
If users become aware of any unauthorised use of their password, they must immediately report the incident and immediately change their password. The Non-Profit Association for Social Development "LEZIONI DI BACIO" along with VIRALKISS® cannot guarantee the security of personal data of users when it is transferred to our platform, and any transfer of such data is at the user's own risk.
The Non-Profit Association for Social Development "LEZIONI DI BACIO" along with VIRALKISS® accepts no liability and makes no warranties, express or implied, in case of any breach of security, damage to the user's device or any other loss or unauthorised use of the user's registration data or other data.
