1 .1 Additional Details Regarding Disclosures 

 

Providers of Marketing Services:

At Project Man Cave, we collaborate with Marketing Services Providers (e.g., Facebook) to assist us in marketing and promoting our App and services on third-party websites and applications. Additionally, these partnerships help us evaluate the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. Here's how these collaborations work:

  1. Tailored Advertising: We use Marketing Services Providers to customize our advertising efforts. This includes excluding existing Project Man Cave account holders from campaigns targeting new users and displaying Project Man Cave ads to individuals who have visited our App/Sites but have not yet registered.

  2. Lookalike Audiences: We create audiences for our advertisements based on user characteristics. These audiences, known as Lookalike Audiences, consist of potential users who share similarities with you, leveraging data held by the Marketing Service Providers.

  3. Custom Audiences: You may be included in a 'custom audience,' receiving specific Project Man Cave advertising content. A custom audience is essentially a list of individuals whom we believe would be most interested in a particular advertisement.

 

In these partnerships, we share a limited set of your personal data with Marketing Services Providers, including:

  1. Your advertising identifier linked to your device (a unique, random number assigned by your device's manufacturer, e.g., Apple or Google, used for ad tracking and conversion analysis).

  2. Estimated location based on your IP address.

  3. Gender & age.

  4. Information about your interactions with our Sites or App, such as app downloads, account creation, or purchase details.

  5. A hashed version of your email address, which is encrypted using a combination of random characters and letters. This hashed code cannot be linked back to your actual email address.

*Note: Hashing ensures the security of your information, making it virtually impossible to trace back to your email address. When hashed email addresses are shared with Marketing Service Providers, they match them against their own hashed user data. Our ads are then served to users who have successfully matched. The matched and unmatched hashes are subsequently deleted by the Provider.

 

For further details on how we use cookies and other tracking technologies, as well as how to manage your preferences for such technologies, please refer to our Cookie Policy.

 

It's important to note that in some instances, these third parties may use the data they collect for their own purposes. For example, they might aggregate your data with other information they possess to enhance advertising-related services provided to other clients.

 

Service Providers:

At Project Man Cave, we collaborate with trusted third-party entities, referred to as "Service Providers," to perform various functions and deliver services to our users. 

We diligently assess all Service Providers we engage to ensure they maintain robust data protection and information security measures. We share only the necessary personal data required for the specific service they provide. Stringent data retention limits and extensive obligations are imposed on our suppliers through contractual agreements to safeguard user information. Additionally, we take measures to maximize data non-attribution whenever possible.

The selection of suppliers we engage with may vary based on factors such as the specific App, Sites, or services a user interacts with. Here are some examples of the types of suppliers we typically utilize to offer our services:

  1. IT Services: Certain third-party software providers used in our business operations may process personal data.

  2. Billing Services: These providers facilitate the purchase of paid features within our App, such as Google Play.

  3. Product Improvement and Market Research: We engage third-party platforms and agencies to conduct customer surveys and market research, aiding us in enhancing our products and services.

  4. Social Media Providers: To enhance user experience, we allow users to create or link their Project Man Cave accounts with their accounts on social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram.

  5. Authentication Services: These services enable users to verify their accounts, for instance, using Twilio for account authentication.

2.5 Contacting Customer Support

Contacting Customer Support and Data Handling:

When you reach out to our Customer Support team through our email address, we will obtain your email address and may record your IP address. We do this to assist in addressing your query effectively and providing you with the necessary support.

Our practice includes maintaining records of our interactions with you, which encompasses any complaints received from you regarding other Users, as well as complaints from other Users concerning you. These records will be retained for a duration of 6 years following the deletion of your account.

2.6 Profile Verification Data, Which May Encompass Biometric Information

To prioritize your safety, enhance your overall user experience, and maintain the integrity of the Project Man Cave Inc. community, we require Users to verify their accounts. This verification process may entail requesting your phone number and, in specific cases, conducting photo verification. Our objective is twofold: to confirm that you are a genuine user, not a robot, and to thwart the creation of fraudulent Project Man Cave accounts that could potentially engage in malicious activities and cybercrime, thereby jeopardizing the Project Man Cave network and the experience for all Users. Account verification serves as a fraud prevention measure.

Additionally, we offer the option for Users to voluntarily verify their profile photos, indicated by the coveted 'verified' badge on their profiles. When you opt for photo verification, we carefully scan each submitted photo. This scan may involve utilizing facial recognition technology to compare the submitted photo with your existing profile picture, ensuring your identity matches your claim. It's important to note that we do not display the verification photos on your profile.

We retain these scans for future verification purposes and for our record-keeping obligations, keeping them in our records until they are no longer required for such purposes or up to three years following your last interaction with us, depending on whichever event occurs first. After the designated retention period lapses, we take appropriate and secure measures to permanently delete the scans from our systems.

2.7 Geolocation Data

Location Access and App Customization:

If you have granted Project Man Cave access to your device's location settings, when you use the app, we will collect data concerning WiFi access points, as well as other location-related information including longitude and latitude. Additionally, we may store your device's coordinates to provide specific features tailored to your location. This information enables us to determine your physical whereabouts and serves the purpose of personalizing the app, facilitating easier interactions with other Users.

This personalization includes displaying general locality information to Users viewing your profile and presenting you with the profiles of nearby Users.

Project Man Cave employs automated decision-making processes as a part of its anti-fraud measures to prevent fraudulent payment transactions. To achieve this, our systems meticulously scrutinize payment transactions for behaviors indicative of violations of our Terms & Conditions. If a transaction meets specific criteria that strongly suggest a breach of our Terms & Conditions and indicate potential fraud, the transaction may be automatically blocked. In cases where a transaction is blocked, affected Users will receive a notification indicating that their transaction cannot proceed, and they have the option to contact Project Man Cave to contest the decision.

3. What Others May See About You 

 

Responsible Sharing and Celebrating Our Amazing Users:

We value our Users and have created features that allow you to showcase your awesomeness to the world. Our App is designed to simplify your connections with fellow Users and facilitate meaningful interactions.

As you navigate the Project Man Cave App, it's important to understand that anything you post or submit may be accessible and viewable by both Users and individuals who aren't part of our App community. We urge caution when sharing information that could eventually become public.

Exercise prudence, particularly when disclosing sensitive details on your profile, such as religious affiliation and health information. You also have the option to include sensitive information when adding certain Project Man Cave badges to your profile, such as your religion and political inclinations. While sharing this information is voluntary, it's important to recognize that by doing so, you explicitly consent to our processing of this data and making it accessible to other Users.

Your Project Man Cave profile and other information made available through the App, including details imported from third-party accounts (such as Facebook, Instagram, or Spotify - see Section 5 of this Privacy Policy for more details), can be viewed and shared by Users, including those who may not use the App. For instance, a User might suggest you as a match to their Facebook friend(s) by capturing a screenshot of your profile picture and sharing it, regardless of whether those friends are App Users.

Please be aware that in specific countries (currently limited to South Korea), Users have the capability to download their conversation history as mandated by local laws. Project Man Cave does not control how Users may subsequently publish or use this information.

 

Additionally, if you log in or access the App through your Facebook or another third-party account on a shared device, it's important to log out of both the App and the relevant third-party account when you leave the device. This helps safeguard your Project Man Cave account from unauthorized access by other users of the device. Your privacy and security are paramount to us.

  2. Conducting research and analytics to better understand your interactions with the App/Sites.

  3. Keeping you informed with App-related updates and new features.

Users who find themselves affected by such measures have the option to contact Project Man Cave to challenge the decision.

Please be aware that should you post content that contradicts our Terms & Conditions, we maintain the right to terminate or limit access to your Account, as stipulated in our policies.

4.2 Project Man Cave’s Matching Algorithm

Utilizing Matching Algorithms for Enhanced Compatibility:

We've harnessed the power of advanced matching algorithms to enhance your experience by predicting your compatibility with other Users and presenting you with profiles of individuals we believe are a great match for you. These algorithms draw from various data sources, including:

  1. The information you provide about yourself within your profile.

  2. Details pertaining to your interactions within our apps.

  3. Your status as a photo-verified user.

  4. Your device coordinates, essential for gauging your proximity to fellow members.

Should you opt to include sensitive information in your profile, such as details about your beliefs, the processing of this data relies on your voluntary and explicit consent, further highlighting our commitment to respecting your preferences and privacy.

This email address will be linked to your Project Man Cave account and used for account retrieval purposes.

We utilize this shared data to construct your Project Man Cave account. In the event you remove the Project Man Cave app from your Facebook settings or Apple ID, we will no longer have access to this data. However, please note that the personal data we received during the initial setup of your Project Man Cave account using your Facebook or Apple ID will still be retained unless you opt to delete your Project Man Cave account entirely. Your control over data access is important to us.

5.2 Linking social media accounts to your Project Man Cave account

You have the option to establish connections between your Project Man Cave account and your Instagram or Facebook, accounts. This linkage enables you to seamlessly share specific content from these platforms directly to your Project Man Cave account.

It's essential to note that we only receive the limited information that Instagram permits to be transferred. This information is outlined in detail by Instagram/Facebook/Spotify and is agreed upon by you when initially connecting your account from these platforms to your Project Man Cave account.

Should you wish to discontinue the linkage between your Project Man Cave account and your Instagram or Facebook account, kindly navigate to the settings within your Instagram or Facebook account. Follow the provided instructions to revoke Project Man Cave app access permissions. Please be aware that any information previously added to your Project Man Cave account from these platforms will not be deleted unless you manually remove it within your Project Man Cave account settings. Your control over these connections is important to us.

8. Your California Privacy Rights

California Residents' Rights and Privacy Disclosures:

For Users residing in California, you have certain rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, in addition to those outlined in section 7 above. You also have the right to be free from any discriminatory practices for exercising these rights under the Act:

  1. Right to Deletion: You can request the deletion of personal information collected from you, with some exceptions.

  2. Right to Information: You have the right to request that we disclose specific information and provide an explanation regarding how we've collected, used, and shared your personal information over the past 12 months.

Additionally, California's "Shine the Light" law, Civil Code section 1798.83, mandates that certain businesses respond to requests from California customers seeking information about the businesses' practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you wish to inquire about your rights under California Civil Code section 1798.83, please contact us at admin@project-man-cave.com.

 

On occasion, as part of a joint promotion with a third party, we may disclose your contact information to that third party if you choose to participate in the promotion. This disclosure allows them to market their products or services to you. When this is a condition for participation, we will always inform you before you enter the promotion. To unsubscribe from messages sent by third parties, please follow the instructions provided by them.

Furthermore, in compliance with California law, operators of online services must disclose their response to "do not track" signals or similar mechanisms that empower consumers to control the collection of personal information over time and across third-party online services. We currently do not track our Users' personal information over time and across third-party online services. This law also necessitates operators to clarify whether third parties may collect personal information about users' online activities when they use the operator's service. We do not knowingly permit third parties to collect personal information about an individual User's online activities over time and across different online services when using the App. Your privacy and rights are paramount to us.

Project Man Cave is committed to neither collecting information from nor marketing to children, minors, or anyone below the age of 18. In the event that we discover a child, minor, or anyone under 18 has registered with us and shared personal information, we will promptly take measures to terminate their registration. The safety and privacy of all our Users, especially those who are underage, are of utmost importance to us.

10. How Data is Retained & Deleted

Data Retention and Account Deletion:

We retain your personal information only for as long as it is necessary based on the legal grounds mentioned in Section 2 above and in accordance with applicable laws. Please refer to "Profile Verification Data, Which May Encompass Biometric Information" in Section 1 for details on our retention policy regarding biometric data.

 

When you decide to delete your Account, rest assured that we ensure it is no longer visible within the App. You have a 28-day window during which you can restore your Account if it was accidentally deleted. After this period, we commence the process of erasing your personal information from our systems, unless:

  1. Legitimate Business Interests: The information is required for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing User safety and security. For example, we may need to retain information to prevent a previously banned user (due to unsafe behavior or security incidents) from creating a new account.

  2. Outstanding Issues: There is an ongoing issue, claim, or dispute that necessitates keeping the relevant information until resolution.

  3. Compliance Records: We must retain it to demonstrate our adherence to applicable laws. For instance, if an account is blocked, we maintain some account details and a record of the behavior that led to the block for evidential purposes in the event of inquiries or legal claims related to the block.

  4. Legal Obligations: We are required to retain it to comply with applicable laws (e.g., for tax and accounting purposes if you made in-App purchases).

Important Note: 

Even if you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that data may still be accessible if it was previously shared with others or copied and stored by others. We do not have control over this, and we cannot assume liability for it. Additionally, if you have granted third-party applications or websites access to your personal information, they may retain such data as permitted by their terms of service or privacy policies.

11. Security

At Project Man Cave, we take great pride in implementing comprehensive security measures to protect your information against potential loss, misuse, unauthorized access, or disclosure. We utilize reasonable security protocols, including secure servers fortified by firewalls, to maintain the confidentiality of your personal data.

 

However, it's essential to acknowledge that no website or Internet transmission can ever be completely impervious, and we cannot provide an absolute guarantee against unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches. Nonetheless, here are some practical tips to help bolster the security of your data:

  1. Periodically change your password to enhance security.

  2. Always remember to log out of your Account when you're done to prevent unauthorized access.

  3. Refrain from sharing your Project Man Cave Account password with anyone.
