If you choose to pay for a "full membership", we use an external party, Adyen or Paypal to process certain payment details. Payment details are not stored by us.
If you download the app on an iPhone, you can only purchase a subscription through the Appstore, paid to Apple. We use an Apple token as an identifier and do not receive or process your Appstore information.
Furthermore, we will process your IP address, login information, (chat) messages, customer service history, time zone settings and browser language.
Your Account (including picture) might be displayed on the shielded homepage of Inner Circle.
