    • If you are using LIVE to engage with persons who are using other Applications than you to access LIVE, LOVOO, the provider of the Application you are using as well as the provider(s) of the other relevant Application(s) are joint controllers regarding the personal data processed for the provision of LIVE.

  5. Processing Purposes and Relevant Legal Bases

    In the context of LIVE, LOVOO may process your personal data for the following purposes and relies on the listed legal basis for such processing:

    • to provide you with LIVE and related functionalities via the Application you are using to access LIVE; for such processing, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "performance of a contract" (Art. 6 (1) (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation respectively the General Data Protection Regulation as incorporated into United Kingdom law by virtue of section 3 of the United Kingdom's European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (together " GDPR")).

      With respect to location data, LOVOO relies on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a), Art. 7 GDPR).

      With respect to sexual orientation, LOVOO relies on your explicit consent (Art. Art. 6 (1) (a), Art. 7, Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR) or on the exception in Art. 9 (2) (e) GDPR provided that you have publicly disclosed your sexual orientation (e.g., in a live stream).

    • for moderating live streams; for such processing, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO pursues its, its Partner's / Partners' and other users' (who are participating in LIVE) interests in live streams provided in a pleasant and safe environment.

    • to carry out talent and VIP management, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

      With respect to biometric data (verification of user identity via facial recognition takes place only when there is a reasonable suspicion that a user is not the person he or she claims to be), LOVOO processes such data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 9 (2) (f) GDPR).

    • to verify the age of users who wish to use the live streaming function of LIVE, LOVOO generally relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO pursues its and its Partner's / Partners' interests in protecting minors from any harm that might result from presenting themselves to a broader audience via live streaming.

      For the purpose of age verification, LOVOO will first use a screenshot of the relevant user's face to determine the user's age. If the age verification based on such screenshot fails (i.e., the result indicates that the user has not yet reached the age of 18), another check will be carried out based on a scan of the user's face.

      Exceptionally, if LOVOO is unable to verify whether a user has reached the age of 18 via the age verification process based on a screenshot and scan of the user's face, LOVOO will rely on user's explicit consent (Art. 6 (1) (a), Art. 7, Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR) to allow for an additional possibility for a user to verify user's age based on a scan of user's face and an identification document with a picture of the user (e.g., driver's license). For this purpose, LOVOO will compare the biometric data contained in the scan of the user's face against the provided identification document.

    • to carry out business analytics related to LIVE, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO pursues its and its Partner's / Partners' interests in understanding how LIVE performs from a business perspective.

    • to show advertisements to users of LIVE via said function; for such processing (if applicable), LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO pursues its and its Partner´s / Partners` interest in operating its business in a commercially meaningful way.

    • to send emails and/or push notification related to LIVE (which are not promotional) and respond to requests related to LIVE, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "performance of a contract" (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) or - where no contract exists between the relevant LIVE user and LOVOO – "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Where LOVOO relies on "legitimate interests", LOVOO pursues its interests in providing support as well as to answer requests to ensure LIVE-user satisfaction.

    • to carry out potential sales of all or part of our asset(s) and/or activities; for such processing LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO has an interest in potentially disclosing and otherwise processing information regarding its assets and activities to potential buyers or acquirers, and their external counsel to facilitate sales of such assets and/or activities.

    • to comply with legal obligations to which LOVOO is subject; for such processing, LOVOO relies on the legal basis (i) "compliance with legal obligations" (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) where such obligation originates from EU or EU Member State law or (ii) "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) where such obligation originates from other jurisdictions. Where legitimate interests are relevant, LOVOO pursues its interests in complying with legal obligations to which LOVOO is subject.

    • to safeguard our rights; for such processing, LOVOO relies on the legal basis "legitimate interests" (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In this regard, LOVOO pursues its interests in establishing, exercising and defending legal claims.

    Your Right to Restriction of Processing

    Provided that the legal requirements are met, you may demand that we restrict processing. This is particularly the case where

    • you dispute the accuracy of your personal data, and then for as long as we have had the opportunity to verify the accuracy;
    • the processing is not lawful and you request restriction of use instead of erasure (see the previous section for this);
    • we no longer need your data for the purposes of processing, however you need it to assert, exercise, or defend your legal claims;
    • you have raised an objection on personal grounds, and then for as long as it takes to determine whether your interests prevail.

    Your Right to Data Portability

    You have the right to receive personal data, which you provide to us to fulfill a contract or on the basis of consent, in a portable format. In this case, you may also request that we transfer this data directly to a third party, provided that this is technically feasible.

    Your Right to Revoke Consent

    If you have granted us consent to process your data, you may revoke this consent at any time with future effect. The lawfulness of the processing of your data until the time of revocation remains unaffected by this.

    If you have provided us with data regarding your sexual orientation (gender you are interested in) or allowed us to collect your location from the Partner whose Application you are using to access LIVE, this happened based on your consent. You may revoke this consent at any time with future effect. The lawfulness of the processing of your data until the time of revocation remains unaffected by this. From the time you object to the processing of your sexual orientation data, matches can no longer be made unless you consent again to the processing of your sexual orientation data, and LOVOO will no longer be able to provide its services as described in the T&C LIVE as a result of your objection. To revoke your consent to the processing of your gender preference information, please email our Customer Care Team at support@lovoo.com with "Objection to use sexual orientation data" in the subject line.

    Your Right to Object to Direct Marketing

    You may also object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes ("objection to advertising") at any time, provided that the data processing is conducted on the basis of legitimate interest. Please note that there may be an overlap between your revocation and the use of your data in the context of an ongoing campaign for organizational reasons.

    Your Right to Object on Personal Grounds

    You have the right to object to data processing by us for reasons related to your particular situation, provided that it is done on the legal basis of legitimate interest. In compliance with legislation, we will then stop processing your data unless we can prove that there are compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing your data that override your rights.

    Right to Lodge a Complaint With a Supervisory Authority

    You have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. You may contact the data protection authority at your place of residence, at the place of an alleged infringement, or the data protection authority competent for us.
