PRIVACY POLICY

 

For us here at Toast, your privacy is our top priority and central to the design and development of the services and products, so you can give them your complete trust and focus on meeting new and exciting people.

 

We value the trust you place in us when you entrust us with your personal information.

 

We built the Toast app as a Freemium app. This SERVICE is provided at no cost and is intended for personal use only.

 

This page is used to inform visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decides to use our Service.

 

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy. The Personal Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

 

The terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, which is accessible at Toast unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy.

 

LAWFULNESS, FAIRNESS AND TRANSPARENCY

Whenever we process your personal data, the relevant basis for processing (selected from the following list) will be identified and recorded alongside the data, e.g.:

  1. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract made with you;

  2. processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;

  3. processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), subject to your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms;

  4. you have given consent.

  5. Each of these bases is subject to further detailed provisions which will be considered carefully before being used as the reason to process the personal data.   Please contact the Data Protection Administrator for further details.  

  6. In particular, your consent must be genuinely, freely, and specifically given and must not be treated as a default option, nor as a carte blanche for unrestricted processing.   We will clearly inform you of the purposes for which your personal data will be used and that it is up to you whether you give, withhold or withdraw your consent.

  7.  Further restrictions apply to special categories of personal data including your race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, health, sex life and sexual orientation, and criminal convictions.  We will not process these kinds of personal data unless we can meet the necessary requirements for doing so, e.g.:

  8.  you have given consent;

  9. you have made the personal data in question manifestly public.  

Please contact the Data Protection Administrator for further details.  

  • We will ensure that all information given to you is clear, concise, transparent, intelligible, and easily accessible.  

  • We will never sell your personal data or make it available to any third parties without prior consent except where:

    • we use a processor, in which case we will ensure that the processor complies with this Policy and all relevant data protection legislation;

    • we are required to do so by law;

    • we seek an investment or sale in respect of any part of our business or assets (in which case we may confidentially disclose your personal data to the prospective investor/buyer as necessary in accordance with our legitimate interests).

PURPOSE LIMITATION

We will collect and process your personal data only to the extent that it is required in order to provide our services to you or for another specific purpose notified to you or unless we are authorized by law to use the data for limited other purposes.

DATA MINIMISATION / STORAGE LIMITATION

We will not keep more of your personal data than necessary or for longer than necessary to achieve the purpose or purposes for which it was obtained. We will take all reasonable steps to erase from our systems all data which is no longer required.

ACCURACY

We will ensure that the personal data we hold is accurate and up to date.  We will take all reasonable steps to amend inaccurate or out-of-date data.  Where we collect personal data directly from you, you confirm that all such data is accurate and up to date.

INTEGRITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY

We will take all appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent unlawful or unauthorized processing of, and accidental loss of or damage to, your personal data.

We will ensure we put in place adequate procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction.  Personal data will only be transferred to a third-party processor in accordance with equivalent procedures and policies.

We will maintain data security as follows:

  • confidentiality - only people who are authorized to use your personal data will have access to it;

  • integrity - personal data must be accurate and suitable for the purpose for which it is processed;

  • availability - authorized users will be able to access personal data for authorized purposes; data subjects will be able to access their personal data in accordance with their rights under data protection legislation.  

We will implement appropriate security procedures including suitable password protection for files and equipment, digital security such as firewalls and malware filters, entry controls to premises, lockable cabinets, secure document disposal, etc.

YOUR RIGHTS

Device permissions 

Mobile platforms can have permission systems for specific types of device data and notifications, such as phone contacts, pictures, location services, push notifications, and advertising identifiers. You can change your settings on your device to either consent or oppose the collection or processing of the corresponding information or the display of the corresponding notifications. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose functionality.

Uninstall

You can stop all information collection by an app by uninstalling it using the standard uninstall process for your device. Remember that uninstalling an app does NOT close your account. To close your account, please use the corresponding functionality on the service.

Account closure

You can close your account by using the corresponding functionality directly on the service.

Reviewing your information. 

Applicable privacy laws may give you the right to review the personal information we keep about you (depending on the jurisdiction, this may be called right of access, right of portability, right to know, or variations of those terms). You can exercise this right by putting in such a request here.

Updating your information.

 If you believe that the information we hold about you is inaccurate or that we are no longer entitled to use it and want to request its rectification, deletion, object to, or restrict its processing, please contact us here.

For your protection and the protection of all of our members, we may ask you to provide proof of identity before we can answer the above requests.

Keep in mind, we may reject requests, including if we are unable to authenticate you, if the request is unlawful or invalid, or if it may infringe on trade secrets or intellectual property or the privacy or other rights of someone else. If you wish to receive information relating to another member, such as a copy of any messages you received from them through our service, the other member will have to contact us to provide their written consent before the information is released. We may also ask them to provide proof of identity before we can answer the request.

Also, we may not be able to accommodate certain requests to object to or restrict the processing of personal information, notably where such requests would not allow us to provide our service to you anymore. For instance, we cannot provide our service if we do not have your date of birth and thus cannot ensure that you are 18 years of age or older.

In certain countries, including in the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how we process your personal information. You can find information about your data protection regulator in the European Economic Area here and in the United Kingdom here. The data protection authority you can lodge a complaint with maybe that of your habitual residence, where you work, or where any alleged infringement took place.

INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE US

In various places on the Service, we request information from you via forms. The exact information we need to collect (including Personal Information) will depend on the purpose of the form. 

For example, when you sign up to create an account, we ask for your name, phone number, email address, date of birth, and gender identity. You will also have the opportunity to complete your profile information (e.g., your interests, occupation) and to submit a live verification photo through the Service. If you want to subscribe to the Service, we will also collect payment information (which is processed securely through a third-party payment processor).

We will indicate on the form whether a particular field of information is mandatory or optional. If you choose not to provide certain information, we may not be able to provide the requested services.

The app does use third-party services that may collect information used to identify you.
