Likewise, we may collect personal data from third party sources, such as social media channels (for example, via Facebook plugin).

- Payment Data: We may collect payment data, which is your payment method information in order to process your payments on the Heal2Heart App. While we process Clients’ payments for hiring CAM Service Providers, we also credit the earnings of all CAM Service Providers into their payment methods.

The data collected may include, without limitation, your device IP Address, browser type, geolocation, as well as the part of the Heal2Heart App you are on, how long you browse in a particular session, the features you use or click and other analytical data and data about your transactions.
We obtain this data automatically for various reasons, such as gathering analytics about the Heal2Heart App usage and improving our marketing, remembering you when you come back to the Heal2Heart App and improving the features available on the Heal2Heart App.

- DATA SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Heal2Heart does not engage in the sale or sharing of personal data about you to or with third parties for their marketing purposes. However, personal data about you may be disclosed or shared in the following circumstances:
- Sharing with third-party service providers (contractors): Heal2Heart uses the services of other third parties to carry out certain parts of the Services (for example, we use third parties to gather analytics, process payments, send email or SMS, maintain the Heal2Heart App, provide chat/video features and detect fraud). These third parties may have access to specific personal data about you in relation to the services they perform for us (for example, we may use Google Inc. to gather analytics and other automatic personal data through the Google Analytics tool). If we use the services of any third party, they will only use the data we share with them to perform their services on our behalf. They are under contractual obligations to not use personal data about you for anything else.
- Sharing within Heal2Heart: We may share personal data internally within the Heal2Heart group, including with any future subsidiaries, affiliates, employees or partner for business and operational purposes. If we share data within Heal2Heart, it will be on a need-to-know basis, and such a sharing will be protected by confidentiality.
- Sharing with other users: If you interact with another user on the Heal2Heart App, certain personal data about you may be shared with such a user. For example, in situations where a Client hires a CAM Service Provider for their services, both users will have access to their profile data, including any personal data shared through chat/sessions. Likewise, a CAM Service Provider’s profile data is public to all the Clients.
- Disclosure to the public: If you post content to any public area on the Heal2Heart App (for example, user comments, reviews, profile descriptions, etc.), any personal data, such as your name, image and other data attached to such content will be visible to anyone who navigates to that area. This may also include visitors who navigate to the Heal2Heart App via search engines.
- Sharing under the law: Heal2Heart may share data with government agencies as may be required under applicable law in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet law enforcement requirements and, including without limitation, in connection with report earnings. We may disclose data about you to law enforcement or the government if we believe in our discretion that it is necessary to respond to legal processes or claims (including subpoenas, court orders and other summonses), or at the request of the government or third parties during an investigation where we believe such disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and property, including the rights and property of other users or third parties, or otherwise to prevent an activity that we determine to be fraudulent, illegal or unethical.
- Sharing under a business transfer: Heal2Heart may engage in a business transfer activity, including a sale of assets, merger, acquisition or consolidation with other companies. If we engage in any of these business transfer, we may share personal data, including customers’ list, with the companies involved. Any business transfer actions will be priorly communicated to you.
- DATA RETENTION
Heal2Heart does not retain personal data about you for longer than we need it. Unless you request the deletion of certain personal data or your user account, we will retain personal data about you in perpetuity. Your verification data will be retained for up to 10 years after submission unless you request the deletion of your user account.
We may not be able to delete certain data even if you request its deletion. This data may include data about your transactions with other users (which stays in our database for 10 years) and any data you post on public areas of the Heal2Heart App, including Client reviews and user comments. We may retain this data in order to comply with legal requirements, including to keep records.
- MARKETING EMAILS
We may send occasional marketing emails (not to be confused with administrative emails) to your account-associated email address, which may contain offers, promotions or bonuses about things we think may match your interest. You will automatically be added to our newsletter list upon your submission of your email address on the Heal2Heart App. However, one of your choices regarding how we process personal data about you is the ability to opt-out of newsletters (marketing emails). You may unsubscribe from receiving marketing emails from us by following the instructions for unsubscribing in any marketing email we send to you.
- DATA SECURITY
Heal2Heart cares about your privacy. We protect personal data about you from authorised access or use using commercially reasonable safeguards. We protect your payment method data, sessions and other relevant personal data physically and technologically.
Any personal data and materials shared between a Client and CAM Service Provider are strictly confidential with no access by us. We use the services of Stripe Inc. and PayPal to process all payments and earnings made by Clients and CAM Service Providers; therefore, your payment method is in safe hands, as our payment processors are industry giants with the best safeguards.
Also, we do not share personal data about you with third parties for their marketing purposes, and we only share personal data with employees to provide the needed support to our users.
However, we do not warrant that your data is 100% safe from unauthorised access or use, as new technologies are developed daily. We do not warrant that only those who are granted access will be able to view your data. Therefore, we will not be liable if your data is breached by unauthorised third parties unless it is due to our negligence.
In line with the requirements under the GDPR, we will communicate any data breach to you as required.
- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA
Heal2Heart provides the Services from our base of operation in Luxembourg in accordance with the GDPR law. If you use the Services, be aware that you are transferring your data to us in the European Union (“EU”). Likewise, we use third-party service providers (contractors) within the EU and countries outside the EU, such as the United States (“US”). These third-party service providers may process your data in the EU and countries outside the EU. If we are to transfer personal data about you to countries outside the EU or European Economic Area (“EEA”), we will rely on approved data transfer mechanisms, such as (i) using standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission, (ii) transferring to countries that have been deemed by the European Commission as having adequate protection (or such company is part of the Privacy Shield in the US), or (iii) transferring when you explicitly give verifiable consent.
- YOUR DATA RIGHTS
Under the GDPR law and other applicable privacy laws, you have certain rights in relation to the personal data we have about you. These rights include:
- Right to be informed: We will honour this right by informing you about how we process your data through this Policy and providing changes when necessary.
- Right of access: Also known as “Subject Access Request”, this right allows you to request that we provide you with information about any data about you, including providing you with a copy in a reasonable format. You may send a message to us at email@example.com to exercise this right.
- Right of rectification: This right allows you to request that Heal2Heart rectify or correct any personal data you think needs updated. For example, you can request that an admin change your email address or profile title. You can exercise this right under your user account profile.
- Right of erasure: Also known as the “right to be forgotten”, this right allows you to request that we delete certain personal data about you. However, this right is limited in that we cannot grant it if your request conflicts with our legal obligations (for example, where we are required under applicable law to keep records of transactions or where the data helps us with analytics).
- Right to restrict processing: You may ask us to restrict processing your data in a particular way as an alternative to erasure. There are certain reasons why the restriction of data is possible, which are outlined under Article 18 of the GDPR. This may include, without limitation (i) if it is inaccurate; (ii) if it has been unlawfully used, but you do not want us to delete it; (iii) if it is not relevant anymore, but you want us to keep it for use in legal claims, and (iv) if you have already asked us to stop using it but you are waiting for us to tell you if we are allowed to keep using it.
- Right to data portability: You have the right to truly own your data. This right allows you to request a copy of your data and transfer it to another data processor without altering its usefulness.
- Right to object processing: You may request that we stop processing your data for certain reasons. This is specifically for situations where we send marketing emails to your email. You may object to such processing by unsubscribing from our newsletter.
- Right to automated decision making: In situations where we make decisions automatedly (where no human intervention is involved), and it affects you in a negative way, you may object to this.
You may exercise most of these rights above by reaching out to Heal2Heart via our customer care, email address (firstname.lastname@example.org), your user account profile area or by using the ‘contact us’ form on the Heal2Heart App.
If we fail to grant you the above rights or you believe that we are unlawfully processing personal data about you, you have the right to report us to any Data Protection Authority in any EU state of your location.
