our legal basis for collecting and using the information described above will depend on the
type of information and the specific context in which we collect it.
We process information about you in order to provide our services in accordance with our

We also process information about you where it is in our legitimate interests to do so and not

network and information systems security, responding to your communications, the
operation of networks of groups by the network administrators, and improving our Platform).
Sometimes you provide us with sensitive information about you; for instance, the mere fact
of joining a certain group may indicate information about your health, religion, political views,
or sexual identity. Joining such groups or posting information on the Platform about these
topics is entirely voluntary and, depending on the settings of the group and your profile (e.g.,
public or private), our legal basis for processing any sensitive information is either that you
manifestly make it public or your explicit consent.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process information about you, or
may otherwise need the information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
For example, we may process information, if we believe doing so is required by, or in
accordance with, applicable law, regulation, legal process, or audits.

rights and property ;

Terms of Service or related guidelines and policies, or if necessary to protect the rights,
property, or safety of, or prevent fraud or abuse of, GOH or others .
