Ultimately, you, as user, control what data you wish to make available to the service to serve your best interests.
The service works without any personal or personally identifiable data, and the search information that you enter are there to help you find valuable collaborations, not to identify you.

Service Processing Specifics:
Who are the entities involved?
You: are the owner of your personal data, and the controller of your service-specific information (interests, skills, preferences)
The group manager: is the person or organization who sets up a service instance where you are participating, and where you will discover other people based on your interests.
The group manager has no access to your private information. They only have access to aggregate and anonymized service participation information (interest tag cloud, anonymized matching statistics), with the purpose of helping them delivering a better service to you.
The sponsoring organization: this is the entity (a company, a non-profit, an academic organization or even a private person) paying for the service, and they as well have no access to your private information. They will only see aggregate and anonymized service participation data.
: the entity owning and operating the service. The access to private data is strictly controlled. The code that makes up the Serendipify.Me
service has access to all your data, but no employee (or no person) can view, modify, or process your data.
Our service runs in the cloud, so the cloud provider's software has access to the data, but they have no reason to access it.
Who is collecting the data? Serendipify.Me
acts as data collector and processor. Besides you personally and the Serendipify.Me
code, no other controller (e.g. group manager, service sponsoring organization) has access to your private data
What data is being collected? The primary data that goes into our service is your matching parameters: interest, passions, skills, opportunities, etc. The additional personal data is the email address associated with your account, which is there to allow you to be contacted when the service has something to deliver to you. You are in full control of what goes in.
Will my private data be shared with any third parties?. NEVER
How will the information be used?
The personal preferences data (interests, skills, etc) will be used to provide the matching functionality
The aggregated, anonymized preferences data (interests, skills, etc) can be used to improve the service by providing aggregate information to other participants, to the group/service managers, and to the sponsoring organization, for reporting and billing purposes.
The email contact information will be limited to
Sending you match notifications, when there is a match in the system, and the other party to the match wishes to initiate a connection
Sending you service notifications, only by the Serendipify.Me
We don't sell your email.
We don't have any relationship with advertisers, and we only get paid by the organizations that are sponsoring the service for you. If you choose to participate in the service, you implicitly trust this organization not to misuse any aggregate, anonymized data that they might get from sponsoring this service.

You have the right to manage, update, and download your data
You have the right to be forgotten (delete your data).
