Opt Out

It is very important for the user to understand that when you send a message though our unseenu website and mobile app, we have given the option for the user to select or deselect the data safety option. If you want to send someone a message and still do not want the other person to see any other details in your profile (other than your profile picture and user name), we recommend to tick the data safety option on message sending page.

Similarly, we have given option in our instant connect options in the mobile app to make your profile visible or hidden to the other unzeenu users in and around your location. Therefore, you can keep your profile hidden or visible depending on your privacy and safety choice.

We do not disclose your personal information to our clients for the purposes of allowing them to conduct direct marketing to you. We may use your personal information ourselves to conduct direct marketing but you are entitled to opt out from receiving direct marketing communications from us at any time. You may do so by responding to the opt-out option which is included with each direct marketing communication that we send.

(8) Children

We are aware of our social responsibility in safeguarding the rights of the children. We allow anyone under the age of 13 (termed as ‘minors’) to use our service only if a separate consent message was sent to us by their legal guardian. Before the minors can register their account, a consent message must be sent to us though our ‘contact us’ page by the legal guardian/parent giving us their consent to use unzeenu service by their children, including the name and contact details of the legal guardian and the minor. Any account created without such consent message will be promptly blocked by us.

As mentioned in our terms and conditions, we do not allow any convicted or registered sex offenders to use our service. Any such user accounts notified to us will be blocked by us and notify to relevant authorities.


(9) Data Breaches

Limitations

We must highlight that unzeenu messaging system is mainly aimed at making connections by sending a message as accurately targeted as possible. While the messages are stored in our system, the intended recipient can retrieve the message through a search/match algorithm. Therefore, there is a possibility of someone other than your intended recipient being able to see your message contents. Therefore, we strongly recommend that , in your message contents, you do not share your important details such as bank accounts, passwords or any other detail that you may think might be important for your personal and privacy safety. Also, our service cannot control the behaviour of a person you met through our service. We strongly advise you to take precautions and necessary safety steps in all the cases when making connection through our system.

However, when someone reply to your unzeenu messages, only you will be able to see with your profile login. In summary, your outgoing messages must be considered to be accessible by public, while the replies you get for your messages are private for your own view.

We must also mention that while we do our best to protect your personal data in our servers and incoming and outgoing channels, we are living in a world where there is always a risk of unauthorised hacking and data leakers. Such risks may not be foreseeable in some cases. Therefore, if you believe that you have any reason to believe that you should not expose yourself to any such possibilities, we do not recommend that you should use our service.


How do we handle any data Breaches

If any data breach is reported to us internally or externally, we will notify all the relevant parties including users within 72 hours of such information. Also, we will promptly involve our ‘data protection officer’ to investigate, report to relevant authorities and users as well as take immediate corrective actions.

We at Unzeenu do not offer any financial compensation in such events. The user must agree on this before registering with our service.

We post any relevant messages though our ‘community’ page from our official ‘unzeenu’ account only.

If you have any concerns or data breach related information, you can write to our data protection officer through ‘contact us’ page or email us at unzeenu@gmail.com , attention ‘ UnzeenU data protection officer’


(10) Data protecting by design and Data Protection Impact assessments

We have taken many steps in protecting data by design. These include: (a) strongest SHA2 & 2048-bit encryption for both in coming and outgoing transmissions. (b) we have not provided any option in our website or mobile app for searching other users’s personal data by any other user. Even in 'unzeenu' connect feature, the users can only see your profile picture and user name. The settings in the app allow you to turn it on or off as required (c ) in the message sending page, we have given users the option to keep their personal data private or public by clicking or unclicking the ‘keep data safe’ option. We must mention here that we cannot take any responsibility about your personal profile data safety if you do not select this option,(d) we do not allow any unauthorised person to enter our office premises. We only entertain written communications though our contact us page or email only, ( e) in our mobile app, we have incorporated privacy settings for you to make your profile visible or hidden from other local unzeenu users. Also, we do not allow our ‘unzeenu instant connect’ message option for anyone who hides their own visibility in the app. This is to ensure that other users cannot spy on you without you knowing about it. (f) we have appointed a ‘data control’ officer to do regular data audits to detect any data related issues, (g) also, we have implemented verification and IP record process in our system to detect fake accounts and other unauthorised activities to the best of our ability.


(11) Data Protection officers

Unzeenu is proud to be the first mobility factor-based communication service in the United Kingdom to be registered with information commissioner’s office (ICO) as well as implementing GDPR policy.

We will be working closely with such legal bodies to implement uptodate best practices. One such step taken by us is to appoint an independent ‘data protection officer’ who can carry out the duties without any conflict of interest.

If you want to forward any information, complaints to our data protection officer, you can write through our ‘contact us’ page or email at unzeenu@gmail.com , attention: ‘UnzeenU Data protection officer’. Present Designated independent data protection officer is : Mr. V .P. Balasuriya .
