Your relationship with other users

We collect data about the users you follow (and users who follow you) on our Service. We use this to display items to you in your search results, Recommendations or feed which may be of interest to you. We use technology (an algorithm) to help us do this.

It is in our legitimate interest to use this data to keep your account secure.

If you decide to log in using an authentication provider or social network, such as Apple, Google, Microsoft or Meta sign-in, or any other third party log-in methods, we are not given your password or other account login details for those social networks or other third party services. However, we may receive some information from those third party services depending on the third party account you choose to use to log in.

We may remove such data, or request that you remove such data, from our Service at any time.

2. Your Marketing Preferences

We may send you emails about products and services we think you will like, but you can always tell us if you don't want to receive these anymore.

3. What data can other users see through the Service?

When you use our Service, some of your data is public and can be seen by others. This includes your profile information, such as your username, name, pronouns, and other information you choose to share in your bio. Requests you make, Recommendations you make, and comments or information on either of these are also public. This information is public to allow users to use our Service, including to allow them to make informed decisions regarding Recommendations and Requests.

Our Service helps users interact with each other. To make this happen, some data generated through the Service is shared with other users of the Service.

You can also choose to add and change this information in your profile, such as your username, name, pronouns, profile picture, profile description or bio, and website address. If you add these to your profile, they will also be publicly available.

Any comments or links from other users on your Requests or Recommendations, and any replies, comments or images you post, will also be publicly available.

4. Who do we share your data with?

We may need to share your data, for example with third parties that provide us with services or for legal reasons.

We may share your data with:

In some cases, our service providers may collect data directly from you, for example if they are asked to conduct a survey for us. Where this happens, you will be notified of their involvement and any data you provide to them will be completely optional. The service provider's use of your data is governed by its privacy policy.

Information that cannot identify you

We don't disclose data that could be used to identify you to anyone else, except as mentioned in this Privacy Policy.

We may provide third parties with aggregated statistical information and analytics information about users of our Service, but if we do we make sure no one can be identified from this information before we disclose it.

5. How long do we keep your data?

We will only keep your data for as long as we need it. If you have an account, this means we keep your data when your account is active. If your account is deactivated, we also keep your data for a reasonable period of time afterwards. We may also keep your data for legal or technical reasons.

We only keep your data for as long as we need it and for the purpose it was collected for. This includes when we need to keep your data to comply with any legal, compliance, accounting or reporting requirements, or for the purposes of fraud prevention.

When we decide how long we need to keep your data for, we take into account the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your data, the purposes we use your data for and whether we can achieve those purposes another way, and applicable legal requirements.

If you have an account with us, we will keep your data for as long as your account is active. If you deactivate your account, or we deactivate it because you have been inactive for a long time, your data will be kept for a period of time after your account has been deactivated.

After your account has been deactivated, we may also need to keep your data for legal or technical reasons (including back-up systems), for example to retain proof of transactions, so we can enforce our rights, and enable the other party to a transaction to access records of past Recommendations or Requests. Following this period we will either delete the data or change it to a form that does not identify you, with or without notice to you.

If your account is deactivated, some of your data may persist and appear within the Service, for example where your data has been shared by other users of our Service. If your account has been banned, we will retain certain data about you to prevent you from opening a new account, in order to protect us, our users and the safety of our Service. For details of retention periods for other aspects of your data, please contact us at

6. Is my data transferred to another country?

Your data may be transferred to a country outside of the country where you live. Not all countries have the same standards of data protection. However, where we do transfer your data to another country, we will only do this where we have appropriate measures in place to protect your data.

Treffa is a worldwide service. By using our products or services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those of your home country. Children under 13 are not allowed to use Treffa. If you are based in the EEA you may only use Treffa if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country. Because Treffa is a worldwide service, we may transfer the personal data of EEA residents to a country outside the EEA. When we transfer information from the EEA to a country that doesn't provide an adequate level of protection, we'll only do so under appropriate safeguards to protect your information, like standard contractual clauses.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through our Service and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

7. Your Rights

To exercise any of your rights, or if you have any questions about your rights, please contact via email at We may need to request specific information from you when you exercise your rights to confirm your identity and to speed up our response. We may not be able to fulfill your request if we are not able to identify you.

You can exercise these rights free of charge. However, in some circumstances we may be entitled to charge a reasonable fee, or refuse to comply with your request where we are permitted under law, for example if your request is unfounded, repetitive or excessive.

We try to respond to all valid requests within one month (once we have been able to verify your identity, if we need to). Sometimes it may take us longer than this if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. If this is the case, we will let you know if we need more time to respond.

Links to other websites

Our service may contain links to and from third party websites. If you click on one of these links and visit these websites, these websites have their own privacy policies which you should read. We are not responsible for these third party's websites or privacy policies.


Our Service is only available to users aged 13 or older.

The Service is not aimed at children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect data from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you are not allowed to use our Service.

How will we notify you?

If we need to tell you about something, which might be for a legal, marketing or other purposes related to our Service, we will contact you using the method we believe is best to get in touch with you.
