The services of BG Smart Business Eood are provided by: BG Smart Business Eood, bul. Gen. Eduard I. Totleben No 53-55, 1606 Sofia, Bulgaria., EIK - 204164223.
BG Smart Business Eood is responsible for the manner in which your personal data is being collected, used and stored.
We will process personal data which you transfer to us actively by your entries. Additionally, we will process personal data in an automated way, based on the use of our service. Particularly in the cases stated below your personal data may be processed.
For details, please refer to the following explanations.
As soon as you visit our website, the company we have entrusted with the website’s operation will store the public IP address of the computer you are using to visit our website. This includes the access date and time. The IP address is a unique numeric address, through which your computer sends and receives data via the internet.
Usually, neither we nor our service provider will know whom the IP address belongs to, unless you provide us with any data permitting us to identify you while using our website. Also, a user can be identified if we take legal action (in cases of cyber-attacks on our website, for instance) and are informed of the user’s identity during the process of investigation. So as a general rule, you will not have to worry we will be able to draw a connection between you and your IP address.
Our service provider is using the IP address to enable you to visit and use our website and to discover and prevent attacks on our websites. Unfortunately, websites are attacked frequently, to harm the operators and users (for example blocking access, spying on data, distributing malware like viruses, or other illegal purposes). Such attacks would adversely affect our website’s intended use as well as the security of our website’s visitors.
The IP address, along with the visit’s time, is being processed to prevent such attacks and potential dangers resulting from them for ourselves and our website’s users. Via our service provider we are pursuing the justified interests of maintaining our business operations as well as of preventing unlawful interference affecting ourselves or our website’s visitors.
The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The stored IP data will be deleted by depersonalization, provided they are no longer necessary for identifying or preventing attacks.
Whenever you contact us via one of the ways of contact provided, we will make use of the data provided by you to process your inquiry. You can contact us by using the contact form on the Platform. In this contact form, we ask you to provide us with the following information: name, email address, and message. We use this information to reply to your questions, request, and complaints.
The legal basis for this is our justified interest in replying to your request according to article 6 paragraph 1 f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If your request is serving the purpose of concluding or processing a contract with us, the additional basis of the processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The data will be deleted after your request has been completed. In cases in which we are obligated by law to store the data for a longer period, they will be deleted after the expiry of this period.
To make use of our Platform, you need to create an account. To create your account we ask you to provide us with your name, email address, and password. This information is mandatory. You can also add extra information, such as your profile picture, telephone number, location, gender, age, date of birth, physical characteristics, relationship status and sexual orientation or flirt preferences. Your extra information is saved in your account and you can update or delete this information at all times. Furthermore, this extra information may qualify as special category of personal data which we only process based on your consent. You are at all times entitled to withdraw your consent by sending an email to email@example.com. Please be advised that if your messages to users of the Platform contain (special) personal data, we process that data to provide you the service.
To use all of our offer’s functionalities, you need to create a customer account. Apart from the information required during the registration process, all other personal information will be provided voluntarily. You alone decide what information you would like to include in your user profile. You can edit or delete your data at any time. The more information you provide, the higher the chances for other users to find you and recognize the mutual interests you share with them. As our website is accessible for everyone via the internet, all the information provided by you will be public.
If you do not provide any data permitting us to identify you (such as your mobile number), you can use our service without us knowing who you are. If you buy coins, you will have to provide your name and your address, but only our payment service provider will receive this data, which they will not forward to us. Accordingly, you will be able to use our service anonymously.
If you create a customer account and add information to your profile, we are processing the data provided by you for this purpose, to create and administrate your customer account, as well as to enable you to make use of the services related to your customer account. Additionally, the data will be used for our service and made accessible to other users, following their intended purpose (for example searching for specific inclinations and interests, match checks to identify mutual interests and preferences). The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
During the process of creating a user account, we will be able to identify your approximate location, based on your IP address. We will use this to pre-enter this location in your user profile, which you can change. This is done to ensure that the members of our service will use the correct location for local searches and thereby – unless they adapt the location – will find other members. The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The data will be stored until the customer account is deleted. In cases in which we are obligated by law to store the data beyond this event (to fulfill accounting obligations, for instance), or if we are legally entitled to store the data beyond this event (in case of a current lawsuit against the user account owner, for instance), the data will be deleted as soon as the obligation or the legal authorization to store the data ceases to exist.
The corresponding provider will transfer the following personal data regarding you, which we will store in your customer account and process as stated under „Customer Account“.

This involves the public indication of these data to your customer account for other users of our service, public search functions for users, match checks, and all other functionalities of which it is recognizable to you as a user that these data are being used for them. If you do not wish this to be done, please do not add any data of the nature defined in article 9 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to your user profile and do not communicate any such data to us or to other users.
As a part of our contractual services we are offering our users the option of sending and receiving chat messages. The legal basis of the corresponding processing of personal data is article 6 paragraph 1 b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The corresponding messages will be saved until you have them deleted, provided we are neither legally obligated nor entitled to continue the storing.
To be able to suggest other users of our service in your neighborhood, we will calculate your position via your browser. To enable this, you need to share your position on your browser's corresponding question. The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can disable the sharing of your position at any time by adapting your browser settings accordingly.
Our justified interest in using Google Maps is supporting our website’s visitors in entering a desired city name (The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) as well as your constantly revocable consent to the localization serving the purpose to suggest users in your area (The legal basis for this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)).
