5. Why does Roomless collect and use your personal data?

a. To provide our services to you
We use the personal data described above to handle your reservations and bookings and to ensure the best use of our service. We’ll also use that data to contact you, inform you and update you on the booking process through service emails. We may also, either directly or through Third Party companies and individuals engage to provide services to us and, review, scan, or analyze your communications with other Users exchanged via our messaging system for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes. For example, as part of our fraud prevention efforts, Roomless scans and analyzes messages to mask contact information and links to other websites. This helps to prevent fraudsters from asking tenants to send them money outside of the Roomless website, such as by bank transfer or other money transfer methods.

b. Sending newsletters
We have a newsletter to inform those interested in news, tips, and information about our products and services. Your email address is added to the list of subscribers, only with your permission. For this purpose, we use your email address. We do this only on the basis of your consent. We store this information until you cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains a link to unsubscribe from our newsletter.

c. Statistical research and profiling
We keep statistics on the use of our website. These statistics help us to, for example, only show you information that is relevant to you. We use our research results to develop better services and offers for our customers. We only use 'aggregated data' for our research. This is data that cannot be traced back directly to you because all directly identifiable elements (e.g. names and e-mail addresses) are removed. We make sure that only a limited group of employees have access to the data set.
We also do profiling for the purposes of fraud prevention. In this way, we are able to decrease the number of potential scammers or fraudsters making use of our platform.
We may combine personal data to get to know more about you. We will of course , respect your privacy at all times. If you do not want us to do these statistics, please let us know.
Legal basis
We may collect and use your personal data only if we have a legal basis for doing so. In many cases, we need your personal data to receive your booking, process your rent payments or to answer your questions. In those cases, the legal basis for processing your data is necessary for the performance of a contract.
If you have given consent to the collection and use of your personal data, we will collect and use your data based on that consent.
Finally, we may use your personal data if we or Third Parties have a legitimate interest in doing so. We will always consider all interests carefully: your interests, the interests of others, and Roomless's interests. On that legal basis, we will collect and use your data to improve, for instance, the Roomless platform, statistical research, or direct marketing purposes, or to offer personalized discounts and offers.

Except for the parties necessary to deliver the above-mentioned services, we do not under any circumstance provide your personal data to other companies or organizations, unless we are required to do so by law (for example, when the police demand access to personal data in case of a suspected crime).
Under certain circumstances and conditions, we work with third parties like Business Partners (Affiliates), that we use in order to promote our listings to a broader audience. Affiliates aim to drive users to an operator’s site/app (Roomless) with the aim of such users signing up and booking a room. This means that the operator will be a controller in respect of such users once they have entered the operator’s site/ app (Roomless), but prior to this, the operator has no relationship with the traffic that is being driven towards the Affiliates site. No personal data is shared with our business partners. Our website features social media buttons. These buttons are used by the providers of these services to collect your personal data.
The categories of third parties we work with to deliver our services are:
