Here, at indexAR (the “Mobile App”), we want to make your Augmented Reality (“AR”) expereinces as engaging and useful as possible, while providing the best possible service. In doing so, we need to access several pieces of data that refer and/or belong to you.
That is why we want you (we also refer to you as the “Audience” in this document) to take a minute to review several aspects about the connection between our Mobile App and your data.
What data are we referring to? The Mobile App collects data from you both directly (i.e. from your input in textboxes or forms across the Mobile App, such as the account registration form or the contact form) and indirectly (i.e. while you are using the Mobile App, without your direct input).
Part of this data is personal data (i.e. data that can lead to your identification). Part of the personal data is needed to make the Mobile App work as intended (i.e. deliver you the service you requested and expected when downloading the Mobile App), while another part is used with your express consent, which we request before we need to access and use that specific piece of personal data. You can find out more about the specific personal data we process in Section 3 below.
Who can access your data and from where? First, the entity operating the Mobile App: Mo’Real Universe SRL, a company registered in and operated from Romania. You can learn more about us visiting our website (http://indexar.tech/), or e-mailing us at email@example.com. We may also refer to ourselves as “we”, “us”, “indexAR” in this document.
Second, in developing and operating the Mobile App, we use products and services provided to us by third-parties. They may access some parts of your personal data strictly to provide us with their products and services. These include: data hosting services; social media services; development services. All these third-party providers, which process personal data on our behalf and based on our indications (i.e. our uses of their products) are identified in Section 5.6 below.
Third, some of your personal data may be seen by our Authors (i.e. parties that make available the 3D digital objects you find in the Mobile App). You can find out more about how these third-parties have access to your data in Section  below.
All your personal data is stored and processed in the European Union. To this extent, we are committed to work only with third-parties that access your personal data and use it through devices and software located in the European Union, and we are using hosting services that allow us to store your personal data in the European Union, to the extent such service providers make accurate representations according to the above.
Why do you need your personal data? Some parts of your personal data are needed to provide you with the services in the Mobile App (such as your e-mail address, which is used to keep you updated about how you can use the Mobile App, as its functionalities evolve and the number of Audience members in the Mobile App increases, as well as to avoid the creation of duplicate accounts). Without this data, the Mobile App cannot function as designed
Other pieces of personal data (such as the location of your phone) allow the enhancement of certain features of the Mobile App (in case of location data, the ability to show you relevant points of interest that Authors have uploaded in your surroundings)
Finally, some pieces of personal data (such as the type of interaction with a specific object, for instance viewing or downloading an object) allow us to provide our Authors with data about the interest shown by you in their Products, and available versions of them. Before we do this, we make sure we allow our Authors to either only see aggregated information (such as how many clicks, views or downloads an object received, and not who specifically clicked/viewed/downloaded an object) or see only parts of your personal data which may not, without any input from us, allow them to identify you (such as connecting your username with the action you took regarding an object in the Mobile App). You can find out more about how your personal data is specifically used in Section 5 below.

3.1.2. non-personal information: other information that we receive from you excluding any personal information that may be made available by you when filling in that contact form;
4. HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
4.1. We collect information from you using forms (such as the account registration form) or other textboxes (such as the contact form available in the Mobile App). We collect information each time you contact us, either through the Mobile App or outside the Mobile App, namely when you e-mail us.
4.2. Also, we also have access to and store conversations that you may have with an Author through the Mobile App, but we do not use it in any way. In case we decide to use such information, we will inform you in advance if we deem the impact on personal data of such use as being substantial.
4.3. We also collect information with the help of third-parties that have products and services integrated in our Mobile App. These third-parties are social media networks (which provide us with personal data when you register in the Mobile App using your social media profile), hosting services providers (which allow us to store all data generated by or in connection with the Mobile App), and development services providers (which provide access to tools and services we use in order to technically develop the Mobile App)
4.4. When you access the Mobile App, we do not collect information about unique identifiers in your device, such as the device ID that enables identification of the type of device you use when accessing the Mobile App
4.5. If this section changes, we will inform you in advance of any such changes, including the impact of the change on your use of the Mobile App and, where the case, whether an explicit consent from your end is required for such changes to effect.

5. HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS USED & DISCLOSED. LEGAL GROUNDS. STORAGE PERIOD
5.1. In general, the primary principle is that we will not use any personal information other than for the purpose for which it was collected, and if we do so we will either ask for your permission or use it in accordance with other legal basis in force and, in any case, inform you in advance.
5.2. The purpose of collection and processing is determined by the circumstances in which the information was collected and/or submitted and based on the legal ground used for the collection and processing, as follows:
5.2.1. your username and e-mail address are collected so that we can create your profile in the Mobile App, which allows you to later login and keep all your preferences and activity in one place; at the same time, because we are continually improving the Mobile App and adding new functionalities, we want to be able to communicate with you both about these new functionalities and the existence of new Author’s content in the Mobile App, but also to receive your feedback about future improvements we have planned. As a result, we are using such personal data in order to provide you with the service you expect when downloading the Mobile App in order to use it.
5.2.2. your location is used to provide you with certain functionalities of the Mobile App, namely the possibility to see different points of interest uploaded or GPS triggered content by our Authors , available in your surroundings. We do not store your location and/or in any way correlate it with any other personal data that belongs to you. At the same time, our Authors are not aware of your location when using the Mobile App. As a result, we are using such personal data based on our legitimate interest to be able to present you with other relevant functionalities of the Mobile App.
You always have the ability to turn off your location data from within the Mobile App, and this will not impact your general use of the Mobile App. However, the display of points-of-interest in your surroundings and GPS triggered content, will be disabled.
Please note you are fully responsible about how and when you plan to use the location settings and any potential impact thereof.
5.2.3. preferences related to your use of the Mobile App (such as objects you click/view/download, textures/patterns/colours of objects you choose) are used in order to provide our Authors with aggregated data about how the Audience (either having a registered account or not) interact with their objects. Aggregated data means your preferences are not nominally presented in connection with your other personal data. As a result, in particular since the impact of such processing is minimal to your personal data, we collect and process your preferences based on our legitimate interests to do so, in order to create added value for our Clients.
5.2.4. your profile picture when you login using a social media account
5.2.5. the device type you are using to access the Mobile App is processed for development and support purposes, meaning we use it to understand if any devices encounter problems while using the Mobile App, whether one type of device is more popular among our Audience than others, as well as to identify, based on your feedback or our own observations, whether the Mobile App is malfunctioning due to hardware problems arising from a particular device. Keeping the Mobile App functional at all times and in good shape is related, among others, to the hardware on which it is deployed; as a result we process information related to your device to be able to provide you with the service you expect when downloading the Mobile App;
5.2.6. personal data included in your billing details (if you use a paid version of the Mobile App), which you fill in for payment purposes, for instance a contact e-mail which is included in the invoice we issue to you. The law requires us to keep invoices stored for a period of 10 years after being issued, so we process any personal data that may be included in such invoices based on our legal obligation related to storage of invoices;
5.2.7. e-mail address is also used in order to provide you with information about our activity and other products / services similar or related to the Mobile App and AR technology, as well as keeping you updated about new features and/or objects available in the Mobile App. You will always have the option to unsubscribe from these e-mails in the footer of each e-mail you receive.
5.3. Authors see your username and profile picture (when you login in the Mobile App using your Facebook profile) associated with each of your actions related to an Asset they have uploaded in the Mobile App. However, an Author may not access any other personal information related to you unless given specific access from indexAR, in which case you will be informed in advance of such access.
5.4.1. the information you used to register and use your account (username and e-mail address, profile photo in case of logging in with Facebook, the device you use) is stored two years after you delete your account, so that you can easily have your preferences in one place while you are using the Mobile App, as well as allowing us to assess our success in re-activating you as an Audience member of the Mobile App; after you delete your account, your username will be pseudonymised, so that neither the Authors, nor us, can contact you further via the Mobile App; also, your e-mail address will be marked accordingly in our internal database to signify you are no longer an Audience member of the Mobile App;
5.4.2. your actions in the Mobile App related to objects in the Mobile App (viewing, clicking, downloading) are stored for two years after each action takes place, in order to provide this type of data from all the Audience members, in an aggregated manner, to Authors; after the expiry of this term, the data will only be used to market the capabilities and historical usage data of the Mobile App, in relation to third-parties and/or at conferences, events and other public contexts.
5.5. If it is necessary for us to disclose your Personal information to third parties in a manner compliant with applicable legal provisions in the course of our business, we will inform you that we intend to do so, or have done so, immediately, using the contact details you have provided to us.
5.6. We do not disclose or sell your personal information to Authors or unrelated third parties under any circumstances. This does not limit our ability to display to Authors the personal data related to your activity in the Mobile App (i.e. actions taken related to a certain object and the date & time the last action was made).
5.7. We utilise third-party service providers in order to process the personal data we receive from you and/or which is generated as a result of your use of the Mobile App. These third-party entities (called processors) are:
