Your Data Is Safe With Us
Recently there have been global industry revelations about how dating apps store share, sell and mine data. Coupled with the UK’s implementation of GDPR, a regulation that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union, data protection has become an important topic of conversation — particularly in the dating industry. It is estimated that one billion adults globally are currently using dating apps, and that number continues to grow.
Where does Chappy stand on this topic?
The safety and security of our community is at the heart of everything we do at Chappy. We choose not to share data with anyone and that includes third parties and advertisers. Chappy takes enormous responsibility, not only in terms of protecting sensitive data and personal information but by delivering a service that is respectful. Our proprietary tech, infrastructure, servers and data centres mean there is no possibility of any external access. There is very limited internal access, all of which is logged. This set-up also helps us greatly reduce the chances of hacking, further protecting personal data and the wider data of the company. Chappy is established on a foundation of world-class technical features that keep in-app actions and data secure and private, at all times. Data protection is important to all users of apps, and this is why Chappy takes this issue extremely seriously.
We're constantly reviewing and testing our internal procedures and policies. But as it stands, we feel very confident we've currently done all we can to ensure our users, and their private information is protected.
Gay men have always needed safe-spaces; places they could gather without fear of stigma, judgment, persecution or the fear of any kind of violation. Chappy aims to be one of those places.
