Guided by the Contractor’s obligation to protect the User’s Personal Information, the Contractor, in this PC, most fully informs the User about the following:
1) why and how the Contractor collects and uses/processes the User’s Personal Information;
2) the scope of the Contractor’s duties as a person who has the right to engage in business activities and is entitled to make decisions on the methods and purposes of processing the User’s Personal Information;
3) tools available to the User to reduce the amount of information collected by the Contractor about the User;
4) the scope of the User’s rights within the scope of the processing of Personal Information.
- Personal information about the User collected by the Contractor.
The Contractor may collect the following categories of Personal Information about the User while using the functionality of the Service and the Site:
1) Personal information provided by the User during registration (creating an Account in the Messenger), such as last name, first name, username, User language code, User ID, but not limited to the list (if applicable to the circumstances);
2) Personal information provided by the User during registration and / or authorization, when taking a survey on the TGSCOUT.APP Website (creating an Account in the Service), such as last name, first name, phone number, address and age, but not limited to the list;
3) electronic data (HTTP headers, IP address, cookies, web beacons/pixel tags, browser ID data, hardware and software information);
4) date and time of access to the functionality of the Service and the Site;
5) information about a particular User activity during the use of the functionality of the Service and the Site;

It should be noted that the Contractor does not receive the User’s personal data from the Messenger, it is not possible to clearly identify the received data with any particular person, since:
– the User’s name in the Message is a pseudonym, its choice is limited to the User’s imagination, it can also not be interpreted as the real name and/or surname of the User, it can not be identified with any particular person;
– a unique User ID within the Messenger is a certain number of registration of an alias in the Messenger system, this id does not allow you to determine the address and/or geolocation of the User, as well as any other data that allows you to identify them with any particular person;
– User image-Avatar, a public graphic representation of the User, where the content of the image is limited to the User’s imagination, the User personally places such an image in the public space, but it is impossible to establish the fact that this image belongs directly to a specific person who is the User.
This information allows the Performer to identify only the Account in the Messenger system, and not a specific person.
No information provided by the Messenger with the consent of the Account owner gives the Contractor the opportunity to determine its belonging to a particular territorial jurisdiction.
In this case, to personalize the Account, the Contractor surveys the User. The collected information is used for the purpose of fulfilling the terms of the Agreement and for the period of its validity.
For example, the Contractor may collect and process Personal Information received from the User: at the time of registration/authorization; when making purchases; when the User subscribes to the Contractor’s newsletters; when the User responds to surveys or marketing messages; when the User views the Site or uses the available functionality of the Service.
The Contractor does not purposefully collect specific personal data (for example, information about health, racial origin, biometric data, political views). At the same time, the User has the opportunity to independently provide this or that Personal Information to the Contractor, in which case the Contractor will process it as part of the provision of services to provide the functionality of the Service. At the same time, the User must take into account that the Contractor cannot request the User’s consent to such processing, since it is not aware in advance of the likely sensitive nature of the Personal Information that the User may provide to the Contractor.
By collecting data, the Contractor does not seek to form an “image” of the User to the extent that this may significantly affect his rights and freedoms in accordance with applicable law.
The Contractor does not violate the rights of the User who used the “Do not track” (DNT) browser functionality and does not track the signal, does not set cookies, does not use advertising.
