When you download the App and create an account ("Account"), we may collect certain information ("Registration Information") about you, such as: The information we collect helps to enhance the App and verify our Users. Registration Information such as your name may be visible to the public on your profile page.

Additional Information

We may ask you to provide your full name and email address. Such details may be shared with third parties for purposes relating to, for example, our email newsletter (hosted by MailChimp). We may also collect additional information in connection with your use of Locali, for example if you use our electronic messaging function. If you contact our team, we will receive your email address, and may track your IP address as well as the information you send to us to help resolve any queries you may have. We will keep records of our communications with you, including any complaints that we receive from you about other Users (and from other Users about you). We recommend and encourage you (and all our members) to think carefully about the information you disclose about yourself. We also do not recommend that you put email addresses, URLs, instant messaging details, phone numbers, full names or addresses, credit card details, national identity numbers, drivers' license details and other sensitive information on your profile which is open to abuse and misuse. Please be careful about posting sensitive details about yourself on your profile such as your religious denomination and health details. While you may voluntarily provide this information to us when you create your profile, there is no requirement to do so. Please remember that photographs that you post on Locali may reveal information about yourself as well. Where you do upload and choose to tell us sensitive information about yourself, you are explicitly consenting to our processing of your information and making this public to other users. When you post information about yourself or use the messaging function, the amount of personal information you share is at your own risk. Please see Section 4 below for more information on who can access what you post on Locali. If you post anything that is inconsistent with our Terms of Use, we reserve the right to terminate your Account. For safety and security and to ensure you have the best possible user experience, we require users to verify their accounts and might ask for your phone number or for you to authenticate yourself via the Facebook login API. We want to avoid fake Locali accounts being created which can be used for malicious activities and cybercrime – they threaten the Locali network and spoil things for everyone. We use a third party provider for account verification who will keep your phone number for up to 90 days for fraud identification purposes across a range of online platforms and services like Locali’s. To prevent abuse of the app/site, Locali uses automated decisions to block accounts as part of its anti-spam procedures. In order to do this, our systems check accounts and messages for content that indicates breaches of our Terms of Use. If an account or message meets certain criteria that demonstrate that the Terms of Use are likely to have been breached, the relevant account will be reviewed and then blocked. All users of accounts that have been blocked will be notified that their account has been blocked and affected users can contact Locali to contest the decision. If you decide to purchase any of our premium services, we will process your payment information and retain this securely for the prevention of fraud and for audit/tax purposes. Finally, we want to keep in touch with you to make sure you know about the great promotions and offers we have available. If you’ve told us it’s OK, we will use your email address to send you information on these. You can withdraw this consent at any time via Settings in the app.
