The responsible party in this respect is solely the app store operator of the respective app platform. If necessary, please inform yourself directly with the app store operator about their data processing.

MMODELS will only give your personal data to third parties if this is necessary to fulfill the contract or if you have given your consent. If personal data is transmitted to third parties on the basis of a legitimate interest, we explain our legitimate interest in these data protection provisions.
In addition, personal data can be transmitted to third parties if MMODELS should be obliged to do so by law or by enforceable administrative or judicial order.
MMODELS reserves the right to use service providers when collecting or processing personal data. Service providers receive from MMODELS only the personal data that they need for their specific activity.
MMODELS works with affiliate businesses who commercially help executing MMODELS and its services. While they are entitled to collect your data, it is saved and remains with MMODELS Limited. Affiliates don't save or share your personal data.
To safeguard the community and protect its users from any harm, MMODELS cooperates with security service providers. In order to receive expedient results, MMODELS shares targeted user data from specific users whose profiles activities are involved in suspicious activities.
MMODELS uses, among other things, service providers for sending emails and newsletters to their members. Service providers also provide the MMODELS server capacity. External payment services and service providers in connection with debt collection support MMODELS in processing payments. Depending on which payment method you select in the ordering process, MMODELS passes on the data collected to process payments (e.g. bank details or credit card details) to the credit institution commissioned with the payment or to payment service providers commissioned by MMODELS. In some cases, the payment service providers collect this data themselves. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.
MMODELS offers video calls on its “MMODELS app” in cooperation with third-party providers. In these cases, no personal data is transmitted but an anonymous identifier. The IP address of a user is used by the operator.
Service providers are usually involved as so-called processors, who are only allowed to process personal data of the users of this online offer following instructions from MMODELS.
6. Duration of Data Storage; Storage periods
We store your data for as long as is necessary to provide our online services and the associated services or we have a legitimate interest in further storage. In all other cases, we delete your personal data with the exception of data that we must keep in order to meet contractual or legal (e.g. tax or commercial) retention periods (e.g. invoices).
The following applies to basic members: You can revoke the storage of the personal data contained in your profile at any time with future effect. You can also delete your profile data yourself. MMODELS automatically deletes personal profile data from basic members who are inactive for 48 months.
The following applies to premium members: The personal data of MMODELS premium members is generally stored for the duration of the contractual relationship. If you ask us to do so, we will delete your data, provided that there is no legal retention requirement for this data. We block data that is subject to a retention period until the retention period expires. If you do not ask us to delete your data by the end of the premium membership, your premium membership will become a basic membership. The information given above regarding the duration of the storage of basic member data then applies.
Please note that your data will initially only be blocked if the deletion is contrary to retention periods.
As part of the assertion of data subject rights, MMODELS stores the data that is necessary for the fulfillment or proof during the limitation period.

8. Web Analytics
We need statistical information about the use of our online offer in order to make it more user-friendly, to measure reach, to be able to carry out market research and to display advertisements relevant to you. For this purpose, we work with various authorized service providers and use web analysis tools.

The usage profiles created by the tools using analysis cookies or by evaluating the log files are not merged with personal data.
The providers of the tools process data in accordance with our instructions and not for their own purposes. The data protection declarations of the respective providers apply to these providers.
