(dd) The use of personal information for the provision of the ATTRACTIVE WORLD service:

The collection of personal information at ATTRACTIVE WORLD is done principally with the aim of giving the customer a safe, smooth, efficient, and personal use of the ATTRACTIVE WORLD service. The personal information are therefore used to provide the services requested and desired by the customer. However, they also serve to detect and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and for the enforcement of the Terms and Conditions and the contract.

In the following, the use of personal information is described in more detail:

• Other members can see your profile information, entries and uploaded photos on the ATTRACTIVE WORLD page.

• Other members can see when you visit their profile page. Conversely, you can also see which members have visited your profile. This is an essential element of the contact between members. In general it is an important part of the services of social networking sites, and thus the service of ATTRACTIVE WORLD. Therefore, this cannot be turned off via the user account.

• Other members can send you messages. However, at no point does ATTRACTIVE WORLD give out your e-mail address. Messages are only sent through your ATTRACTIVE WORLD mailbox. You can always "block" undesirables if you want to make it so they can no longer contact you.

• Email notifications: ATTRACTIVE WORLD sends various notifications on every registered user.

In the context of customer relationship and customer service messages we will inform you if, for example, other members have visited your profile, you have been sent a message there are new profiles for voting available. You can always disable these service messages on your user account under ”My Account/My alerts”.

We also send you ATTRACTIVE WORLD information and special offers, such as tips and useful information about the partner search, surveys and special offers for your ATTRACTIVE WORLD membership. You can disable the ATTRACTIVE WORLD info and special offers messages by following the link presented in each email or contacting ATTRACTIVE WORLD via our contact form .

Information messages pertaining to the service, such as the confirmation of customer service and information on the release of images, and on the conclusion of a paid membership, in the form of contract documents, payment processing information, etc., are part of our service and therefore cannot be cancelled.

We would also like to inform you via e-mail about ATTRACTIVE WORLD Partner offers and events. To protect you and ATTRACTIVE WORLD from abuse, we introduce in this newsletter, the so-called "double opt-in" procedure, i.e. you only receive the newsletter, if you have ordered it by e-mail or in your user account and confirmed your email address. You can unsubscribe at any time by deactivating this either in the message options, or by following the unsubscribe process in the newsletter.

If you change your message options, it can take up to 48 hours before it is active. Nevertheless, depending on the message options, the cancellation is still successful, and after this period you will receive no additional messages from us.

• ATTRACTIVE WORLD sets a filter to protect users from unsolicited mail. For example, automatic filters prevent the sending of messages with certain pay numbers or certain inappropriate keywords.

• Identity Verification: Premium members can send a copy of their identity card by e-mail, fax or post, along with their additional security code to us. Our customer care then checks whether certain information (e.g. date of birth) coincide with the date of birth on the identity card displayed on the website. Upon successful identity verification, the profile is marked with a symbol. ATTRACTIVE WORLD does not store the ID copies and destroys them after identity verification.

• Under the photos of other profiles there is a “Favorite" button that can be clicked. With the "Favorite" function, you can set other users profiles as favorites with one click. As a consequence, the other member is notified. In your own profile you can see how many members set you as a favorite.

• “Message Read”: Members can use this function to detect whether their messages have been clicked on by the recipient. You can disable this feature in the user account.

• Import photos from Facebook: If you have a user profile on Facebook, you can transfer photos from this profile to your ATTRACTIVE WORLD profile during the first registration. To do this you must click on the appropriately labeled button to connect to Facebook and log in there with your Facebook user personal information. After successful login a window will appear were all your Facebook user account pictures are stored.
