Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how (“we”, “our”, or “us”) collects, uses, shares, and stores your information when you use the website and/or the mobile applications that link to this Privacy Policy (“Services”). You should also read our Terms of Use. When you use our Services, you are agreeing to our rules and policies, including this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use and you consent to us collecting, processing and storing your information as described below. You must not access or use the Services if you do not agree with our Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy covers the following information:

1. Who is is currently operated by Europe, Ltd., an Irish limited liability company (the “Company”). The Company's registration number is 551873 and its registered office is at Arthur Cox Building, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The personal information provided to or collected by our Services is controlled by the Company in accordance with Irish and EU law.

2. How We Collect Your Information

How we collect, process and store information depends in part on how you use the Services. You may register to use the Services (“Registered User”). You can use some of the Services without creating an account (“Guest User”) or providing any information other than information that is automatically collected as explained below. The different categories of information we collect from you are described below.

3. Being Anonymous

The fact that you can send messages without other people knowing who you are is part of what makes unique and so much fun. It means that you can ask things that you might be too embarrassed or shy to say if anyone knew it was you. People may often be more honest when they are anonymous, whether they’re asking a question anonymously, or answering a question where they don't know who has asked it.

You have the ability to decide whether to ask a question anonymously or on a named basis each time you submit a question to another user. However, this also means that when you receive questions or comments, you may not know who they come from either!

Remember, if you are a Registered User, that even if you ask a question anonymously, our Service will still have a record of the fact that you asked the question (even if we keep this private). If you are a Guest User, we may not know who you are.

Some people don't like receiving things from people if they don't know who they are. So we provide all users with the ability to choose not to receive questions from anonymous users on the “Settings” page on the website and mobile application.

If you do choose to allow anonymous questions, please know that our intention is that they will foster candid, open conversations. However, if someone does abuse the option of being anonymous by being mean or by saying horrible things because they know you don't know who they are, you have the ability to report that user to us so that we may take appropriate action. We have also built in site moderation techniques to protect you and to prevent users from transmitting harmful content. For more information, see our Abuse Policy, our Terms of Use and our Safety and Security Essentials.

We may assist the police or other law enforcement agencies with their requests, or produce information in response to legal process where we, in good faith, believe that such disclosure is required by law, or to protect our rights and property, or the safety of individual users or the public, or where otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy.
