3.    Moderator


3.1    Moderators have been hired by us to participate in the chat room to: 
•    supervise and monitor the use of the chat room; 
•    ensure that participants adhere to the conditions of the Platform; and
•    engage in conversation with Users in the chat room.


3.13.2    These moderators may take on various identities and carry out conversations with any of the Users online at a given time. They may not be identifiable as moderators and may be using a fictitious profile/account. A User may communicate with a moderator without the latter revealing his/her identity.


3.23.3    The presence of the moderators will also give Users an opportunity for discussion should there be a temporary lack of participants in the chat room at that particular time. Some individual profiles might not fully correspond to the profile of the person communicating online with the User as these are moderator profiles and not profiles of external participants. These moderator profiles may be male or female.


3.33.4    Moderators may report a User to us if the User engages in any unacceptable activity, including any of the activities described in clause 12 of these Terms.


4.    Account Deletion and erasure of personal data 


4.1    Messages that you have received from other Users or us will either appear on screen after logging in or be sent to you via email to the email address given by you at the time of registration or to the last email address you have provided to us. 


4.2    If you wish to contact us, you may contact us by email (as shown at the end of these Terms) or by post at the following address:
Steley Pty Ltd
Level 12
60 Carrington Street
Sydney NSW 2000


4.3    Your written correspondence should contain your name, address and pseudonym as well as the email address with which you registered your account.


4.4    Should you ascertain, or suspect, that your account is being misused, then you should inform us in writing immediately. In the event it is being misused, we will then endeavor to block the account.


4.5    Participation in the chat room after registration is not obligatory. However, we reserve the right to delete an account, together with the pseudonym and personal information connected with the account, should it remain inactive for more than 180 days, and if there is no flirt coin credit on the account.


4.6    You will be informed of this deletion via the email at least one week prior to the planned deletion. If you do not log into your account before the proposed deadline and do not contest the deletion in writing, then the account will be erased from the Platform.


4.7    You can terminate this Agreement at any time by using your App, going to Settings/My Account, and selecting “Delete account”; you will then receive an email to the email address you used to register your account and will need to click on the link embedded in that email to confirm and complete the deletion of your account. 

With the deletion of your user account, the personal information/ data will also be deleted, unless it is a user account with which payment was made or legally relevant. You can find out more about it under: https://www.steley.com.au/en/privacy.html in the category "Personal data deletion and storage period" and " How long we retain your information or personal data/ request data deletion”.


4.8    Alternatively, you may stop using our services and notify us of your wish to terminate this Agreement by email (see category 15, paragraph 15.1) or via our website https://www.steley.com.au  by clicking on "Help" at the very bottom of the bar and then on "Can I delete my profile?"; if you are already logged in, a new window will open where you can choose between "Yes" and "No" to delete the account. If you choose "Yes", an email will be sent to you automatically where you will have to confirm the link to delete the account permanently. If you choose "No", the account will remain open.
In case you are not logged in, you follow the same procedure as described above, with one difference: when the new window opens, you need to enter the correct email address with which you registered. Consequently, you will receive email with a link where you can confirm the account deletion.
Another option is to use the link directly: https://steley.com.au/community/profile/delete , taking into consideration whether you are already logged in or not, as already described above.

With the deletion of your user account, the personal information/ data will also be deleted, unless it is a user account with which payment was made or legally relevant. You can find out more about it under: https://www.steley.com.au/en/privacy.html in the category "Personal data deletion and storage period" and " How long we retain your information or personal data/ request data deletion”.


4.9    After deletion of the account, the pseudonym will be released and available to the public for future use. All personal information connected with the account will also be deleted in so far as we are not legally required to retain that the information and the data is not required as legal evidence. More about deletion of personal information can be found at: https://www.steley.com.au/en/privacy.html or via email to service(at)steley.com.au 


4.10    You will not be entitled to any compensation, damages or other payment from us as a result of the deletion of your account and personal information and the release of your pseudonym.
