  1. Entry into, performance and termination of an agreement for the provision of Services related to the use of the SEEP App (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR), which ground applies to all the data involved in the registration of an Account, which the User must provide, as otherwise no agreement for the provision of Services through the Application will be executed with them, and other data made available by the User during the use of the Application, the provision of which is voluntary, and the lack of which may have an impact on the manner of using the Application;
  2. Legitimate interests of the controller, e. Seep (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR), including the development of the Application, conducting surveys and analyses on how the Application is used, direct marketing of the Company’s services, identification and prevention of personal data breaches, content breaches, breaches of the T&Cs, and other dangerous conduct, and pursuing related claims, as well as establishment and pursuit of and defence against claims;

Do you need to provide any personal data in order to use the Application?

The use of the Application and the entry into an agreement for the provision of Services by electronic means is entirely voluntary. Therefore, if you do not wish to provide Seep with any of your personal data, do not register and do not use the Application.

If you wish to use the Application, you must provide certain personal data to Seep in order to be able to use it and enter into an agreement for the provision of Services by electronic means. Therefore, their provision is a contractual condition. Therefore, in order to enter into an agreement, you will need to provide the following information to sign up for the Application: your first name and surname, date of birth, Facebook or Google+ login credentials, email address or phone number, location data, Facebook or Google+ profile data.

To use the Application, you must grant it, as the user of the Hardware on which the Application is installed, the right to access the location data. Consent to such access is voluntary, but it is necessary for the proper provision of Services through the Application. Therefore, if you do not allow the Application to access your location data, you will not be able to use the Application. The consent to access your location data should not be equated with the consent to the processing of personal data, since the consent to access your personal data is a condition of the provision of a service (a contractual condition), and therefore the processing of the location data is based on the executed agreement, and only the fulfilment of this contractual condition takes place by means of expressing consent to access to the data in the operating system of the Hardware on which the Application is installed.

Providing your data in the payment process related to the purchase of the PREMIUM Package is voluntary, but their provision is required to make the purchase of the PREMIUM Package, so if you do not provide them, you will not be able to change the terms and conditions of the agreement by purchasing the PREMIUM Package.

The provision of other data related to the use of the Application is voluntary, and the failure to provide them does not prevent the use of the Application. However, your failure to provide such other data may affect the way you use the Application.

The provision of marketing data for marketing purposes other than direct marketing of Seep’s own services is subject to your consent, which is voluntary and may be withdrawn at any time.
