For example, we collect relevant information about your customer support interactions with us, such as the date, time, method of contact and subject of the conversation.

What we use your personal information for
We use your personal information to provide the Service and the features you have requested. We let you and your partner communicate with each other and follow a common progression in the paths. If you have selected a product with a test, we show you your individual test report and when your partner also takes the test, you both get a matching report that says something about the properties you are matched on. These tests are made according to good psychology practice (search for "psychometry" if you want to know more). The point of offering individual or matching reports is to provide better communication opportunities about individual differences. We use your email to notify you when your partner has come as far as you so you can continue. Otherwise, we will use your email to a very limited extent to notify you of new offers or services from Remainly. Only your username will be. It makes sense to use your first name as a username, but there is nothing in the way of registering as something random like Donald or Dolly Duck. Remainly has no interest in linking identifiable information with test results or other information that couples enter, for example, in the couple’s log. However, we have listed the information as personal data we process as we have no control over whether you use your own or a made-up name as a username.
We use the information for the following purposes:
- To administer your orders and subscriptions. We process information regarding the products, services and subscriptions you have ordered from us as necessary for the performance of our contract with you.
- To assess your qualities and personality through the Big Five methodology and match it with those of your partner. As part of the Service we provide to you, you will answer questions in personality tests.
The methodology used is called The Big Five personality traits, also knownas the five-factor model (FFM). How this works is that the Serviceapplies factor analysis (astatistical technique) to personality survey data (your answers). The base for the methodology is that some words used to describeaspects of personality are often applied to the same person and for example,someone described as conscientious is morelikely to be described as "always prepared" rather than"messy". This theory is therefore based on the association between words and not on neuropsychological experiments.
Please note, that we only process your personal data in relation to the purposes stated herein and therefore will not use it in any manner incompatible with these purposes.
- To communicate with you. Your contact information will be used to send you reminders, confirmations, application messages and other relevant information about the Service. This processing may be necessary for performance of our contract with you and to provide you with the Service (e.g. send important administrative messages required) or otherwise necessary for our legitimate interests in enhancing and maximizing your use of the Service and to communicate effectively with you.
- To conduct user surveys. Your contact information may be used to contact you regarding user surveys. By continuously collecting qualitative feedback from you and other Users, we can gain a deeper understanding of our users’ problems and needs.
We will contact you based on our legitimate interest in gathering feedback for developing and improving the Service. Participation in user surveys is however optional any potential personal data provided to us in connection with the answers to the survey will be processed based on your consent.
- To create aggregated data for developing the Service and its features, including the tests, matching procedure and educational material.
We use technical data, and other aggregated and non-personal information to develop and improve the Service, including troubleshooting, data analysis, research, statistical purposes and testing (such as beta testing and evaluation of new features). For example, we may collect and evaluate technical data about your use of the Service for analytical purposes, to understand how people use the Service in order to make it more intuitive. The technical data is collected in connection with your use of the Service or your interactions with us.
Regarding answers to personality tests, we process test results linked to age and gender inorder to have the possibility to improve our tests and the advice andeducational material we provide. For example, Woman (34) with PersonalityProfile A has as a partner Man (34) with Personality Profile B. This type of data will only be used at group level and it will not be possible to track individual users based on such data.
- To market us and our services and products. Your contact information will be used to send newsletters or other information regarding the Service or other services and products that we offer. This processing is based on our legitimate interest of being able to market us and our services to our existing users.

In connection with, due to strategical or business-oriented reasons, a potential merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company, the personal data we retain about you may be processed, shared or transferred, to parties involved in the process. This processing is based on our legitimate interest of being able to develop our business.
