3.1 Data automatically supplied by the User
During their normal operation, our systems acquire Data, that we store and process in order to ensure the correct functions of the Service. This includes: IP addresses and domain names of computers used by Users to connect to the Website, data contained in Cookies (see also the paragraph on Cookies), and other parameters such as those related to the User’s operating system and communications environment.
3.2 Data voluntarily supplied by the User
We also store and process data that You have entered or otherwise provided, such as the data related to your profile (e.g. full name, address, interests, skills …) or the data that you may provide using the System or during your interaction with other users. This data may be typed in directly by You on our Website, or may be retrieved by Waxidea, on your request, from a third party service (e.g. another website to which you are registered). In particular, if you decide to sign-up or log-in to our Service through Linked-In, we will store on our systems the data we collect from Linked-In on Your behalf.
In order to sign-up to the Service, You are required to provide some mandatory information: your full name, your email address and a secret password. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is optional, but enables the User to better use the Services.
Additionally, we process the Data You or other Users upload, publish, send, or display in comments, photos, profiles, messages, notes, text, information, or other kinds of content (“User Content”) on or through Waxidea or transmit to or share with other Users or third parties accessing Waxidea.
All the data you provide or otherwise transmit to or through the Service is regulated by the Service’s Terms and Conditions, that you can access at the address www.waxidea.com/terms.
4.1 We process Your Data, including by automatic and electronic means, for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which they have been collected. Processing refers to the acquisition, storage, transformation, deletion, display and communication of your Data. In some case, the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which they have been collected may outlive the duration of Your account or use of the Service, as for example in the case you have posted a comment or sent a message that will still have to be displayed to other users after you close your account on the System.
4.2 Depending on the settings of Your account, your profile information and information about your activity on Waxidea will be available to other Users of Waxidea or to occasional visitors of the Website, including non-registered Users.

This may include service providers located or that operate from outside the European Union. These service providers may have access to Your Data, Your User Content and other information for use in connection with these business activities. Where We use third parties for the processing of any personal information, We implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the specified purposes.

This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents, or government agencies.
5.1 Location of Data processing
Although our Services are currently hosted in the European Union, personal data handling may take place in a Country that is not a European Union. This is sometimes the case, for example, when We use the services of a Third-Party service provider.(see “What we do with your Data”).
Although we put in places reasonable measures to protect your Data on our System, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. For this reason, You acknowledge that there is a residual risk that Your Data, User Content and other information may become publicly available beyond what You or We have authorized.
Also, We cannot and do not control the actions of other Users with whom the User may choose to share data and information. Therefore, We cannot and do not guarantee that Your Data, User Content, and other information that you make available through Waxidea to other users will not be accessible by unauthorized persons. In order to preserve the security of Your Data and of those of the other users, You will abide to the obligations set in our Terms and Conditions.
You also understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of Personal Data, User Content, and other information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored this data and information.
We use these Cookies exclusively for what is strictly necessary for the good functioning of the Service, including handling user sessions and the collection and generation of aggregate logs and visit information (e.g. the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the Website).
In particular, We use persistent “Session ID” cookies to identify the Users during the course of their session, to confirm that they are logged in and to recognize them and their preferences upon their return to the Website.
