What information do we collect and process?

Stando offers its the opportunity to meet new people and stay in touch with them wherever they are. One can do this by downloading an application to their cellphones or by visiting our website. Stando is an online platform for adults who want to meet other people. We operate our social network to give our users a possibility of networking globally. By joining Stando, a user enters into a formal agreement with us and gives us their consent to process their data in order to provide them service within the frames of that agreement. One can only become a user of Stando if they are 18 years or older, or more in the countries where the majority is reached when older than 18, accordingly. Stando does not wish to collect any information about or market to children, minors or anyone under the age of majority. If we become aware that a child, minor or anyone under the age of 18 has registered with us and provided us with personal data, we will take steps to terminate that person account. Stando reserves the right to retain such user’s email and IP address to ensure that they do not try to get around our rules again.

If one wants to join Stando, they have to complete an online registration form, where they provide us with various information, like: name, email address, gender, date of birth, location, and other optional personal details to include in one’s user profile. For cellphone users, we collect information about WiFi access point and location, which are used to identify physical location of a user, so that other members could see them, when they search for friends that are nearby.

One can always access their data and update, correct or delete them by entering their “Profile” page after logging in to Stando. The only data that a user cannot change once registered is their gender and date of birth. If one wishes to change their user’s profile gender, please contact our technical support team.

We strongly advise our users to be careful when posting sensitive details on their Profile, e.g. health information, telephone number. We wish to remind you that photos and videos that one posts on their profile may reveal such sensitive information. By uploading and entering one’s sensitive data, one is automatically giving consent to our processing of this information and making it public to other Stando users.

Most of our services is free of charge, therefore we need to process some data (demographics and location) to drive targeted advertising and we share such data with advertisers to support our business. This can be stopped via Settings but this does not mean that one would stop seeing adverts, they might just become less relevant. This option is also helpful for us to keep our users updated with our special or limited time offers. When given a consent by our users, we send such information to our user’s email addresses or phone numbers. This consent is also subject to withdrawal at any time via Settings.

When someone decides to become our premium user, we have to process their payment information and retain it securely in order to avoid fraud, as well as for our tax and auditing purposes. Collection of payment data is necessary for us to process the payment itself and for us to be able to perform our contract with our premium users. Payment data will never be used by us in order to perform any other activities than the ones described above.
