We take your privacy très sérieusement (very seriously) at Chiara’s Experiences.
Part A: Privacy Principles
Chiara’s Experiences ensures the highest standards for the protection of your personal data and your privacy.
1. Chiara’s Experiences works hard to earn and keep its User’s trust. Therefore Chiara’s Experiences strictly adheres to the following principles to protect the User’s privacy:
Chiara’s Experiences collects, processes, and uses all data and/or information about and related to the User’s person and the User’s account with Chiara’s Experiences (Personal Data) in accordance with the laws and statutes on data protection of the French Republic.
Chiara’s Experiences uses Personal Data solely to provide the User with the Chiara’s Experiences Services. Chiara’s Experiences will never rent, sell, or otherwise provide Personal Data to any third party for advertising or for marketing purposes without the User’s consent. The User is aware of the fact and agrees that in case of online debiting procedures (i.e. payment via credit card) any data (e.g. name, credit card number, expiry date, bank details etc.) which is necessary for the due processing of such payment will be transferred to third parties involved in the execution of the debiting procedure (e.g. operator of the payment module, credit card acquirer and the bank issuing the credit/debit card).
2. Information Collection by Chiara’s Experiences
In order to become a User of Chiara’s Experiences, it is necessary to first create an account on the Chiara’s Experiences platform. To create an account, the User is required to provide mandatory contact information. In addition, the User must choose a password. The User’s password and/or User name are never visible to any other User of Chiara’s Experiences or any third party at any time.
2. Profile Information and User Content
After successful registration on the Chiara’s Experiences platform, the User may provide additional information about herself (e.g., professional background, centers of interest avoiding sensitive information such as ethnic background, affiliation to any philosophical movement, trade union, or political movement and religious beliefs). Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional and on a voluntarily basis, but enables the User to better use the Services. Additionally, the User can upload, publish, send, or display comments, photos, profiles, messages, notes, text, information, music, video, advertisements, listings, and other content (User Content) on or through the Chiara’s Experiences platform, or transmit to or share with other Users or third parties accessing the Chiara’s Experiences platform.

Chiara’s Experiences collects all the above-mentioned information so that Chiara’s Experiences can provide the User with the Services and offer customized features. In most cases, Chiara’s Experiences retains the information so that, for instance, the User can return to view prior messages she has sent.
3. Information about the User’s Contacts
If the User chooses to invite other people to Chiara’s Experiences to join her network, the names and email addresses of the invitees need to be entered on the Chiara’s Experiences platform. The names and email addresses of women who are invited will be used by Chiara’s Experiences only to send the User’s invitation email (including an optional personal message) and corresponding reminders. Chiara’s Experiences stores this information to send the invitation email, to register a contact connection if the User’s invitation is accepted, and to track the success of Chiara’s Experiences’s referral program.

Chiara’s Experiences also receives the Internet protocol (IP) address of the User’s computer (or the proxy server the User uses to access the World Wide Web), the computer operating system and type of web browser she is using, as well as the name of the User’s ISP. This data is saved in a log file and will be stored by Chiara’s Experiences in the standardized combined log file format unless the User objects to the processing of such data and notifies Chiara’s Experiences accordingly by sending a letter to Chiara’s Experiences.
