– Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016, regarding the protection of natural persons concerning the processing of personal data and the free circulation of these data and which repeals Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (hereinafter referred to as the “Regulation” or “GDPR”).
The DPA and the GDPR will hereinafter be collectively referred to as the “Data Protection Laws.”
mestatusvideo.com determine the means and purposes of the processing of Personal Data and therefore act as a “Data Controller” under the Applicable Data Protection Laws.
The person in charge of the processing
“The Data Controller” will be a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or any other body that, by itself or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of processing are determined by national law or regulation, the data controller or the specific criteria applicable to his or her appointment;
The data processor
The natural or legal person, public authority, service, or any other body that processes personal data on behalf of mestatusvideo.com;
“Personal data” refers to any information identifying you or belonging to an identified or identifiable natural or legal person.
PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
The personal data we collect and store is protected using the industry’s highest security processes and systems. Our commitment to protecting your personal information is not only through high-quality standards but also through the best and most efficient application of the law. We are obliged to only process personal data based on a legitimate and genuine reason to do so, based on one of the legal bases established in the GDPR.
PROCESSING BASED ON OUR LEGITIMATE INTERESTS
A legitimate interest will exist when we have a commercial or business reason that requires us to process personal data. In this case, we will protect all your personal data and how said data has been processed to ensure that it is not unfair to you or your interests.
Suppose we decide to process your personal data based on legitimate interest. In that case, we will inform you of what that legitimate interest is, and you will be given access to a process in which you can make any objections and/or questions that you may have in relation to said process. It is important to note that mestatusvideo.com is under no obligation to stop processing your data unless specially requested.
PROCESSING BASED ON YOUR CONSENT
Consent is not the only way we have to obtain permission or be obliged to process your personal data. We will only process personal data with your consent if we are unable or choose not to apply any underlying legal basis (such as to comply with a legal obligation or legitimate interest). If we process your personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and in the same way as you previously provided. If you exercise your right to withdraw your consent, we will determine whether we can or are required to process your personal data based on any legal basis other than consent. In such a case, you will be notified in the appropriate manner.
To avoid any uncertainty, we would like to point out that in those limited cases where we cannot or choose not to rely on a legal basis (for example, our legitimate interests), we will process your personal data based on your consent.
In cases where we process the data based on your consent (which we will never take for granted, and you must provide consent clearly), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO WITHDRAW your consent at any time way it was given.
Suppose you exercise your right to withdraw your consent at any time (by writing to us via electronic mail). In that case, we will determine whether there is an alternative legal basis for the processing of your personal data at that stage (for example, based on the legal obligation to which we are subject) where we would be legally authorized (or even obliged) to process your personal data without the need to have your consent and, if we do, you will be adequately informed.
When we ask you for such personal data, you can always refuse; however, if you refuse to provide us with the necessary data that we ask you to provide you with the requested services, we do not guarantee that we will be able to provide those services (especially if consent is the only legal basis available to us).
To be clear, consent is not the only basis that allows us to process your personal data. In the previous section, we have mentioned the different bases we rely on when processing your personal data for specific purposes.
- Your use of mestatusvideo.com (such as timestamps, clicks, scrolling, browsing times, browsing heatmaps, searches, referral/exit pages, cookies on/off, and activity and interactions in our game clients, including chat logs);
- Your computer or device (such as IP addresses, mobile network information, unique device IDs, processing capabilities, manufacturer and model, language and other regional settings, geographic location, screen resolution, color depth, and similar settings);
- How mestatusvideo.com perform, including problems you may encounter (such as loading errors and response times).
We may use technologies like cookies, scripts, and our own servers to help us collect and store this information, including in log files.
We may need to use and retain personal information for loss prevention and protect our rights, privacy, safety, property, or those of others according to our legitimate interests.
We will retain data for limited periods when it is needed for business or legal reasons. We need to ensure that our services protect information from accidental or malicious deletion. Because of this, there may be delays between the time you delete something and the copies from our backup system are deleted. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to contact us.
AUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
When any personal data has to be transferred outside the EEA – European Economic Area, we will ensure that the necessary and appropriate precautions are taken. We may also share your personal information with other affiliated or subsidiary companies and business partners or successors to our business. The manner in which data is transferred outside the EEA is detailed below. Your personal data will never be shared with third parties for marketing purposes (unless you give your consent).
SHARING PERSONAL DATA WITH OTHER CATEGORIES OF RECIPIENTS
Any other authorized disclosures will be made in accordance with Data Protection Laws (for example, all of our processors are contractually bound to comply with the requirements of such data protection laws, including a strict obligation to maintain the confidentiality of all information they receive by ensuring that your employees or staff also have that similar obligation). These service providers (our managers) are also subject to a series of obligations (particularly those established in Article 28 of the GDPR).
Your personal data will never be shared with third parties for marketing purposes (unless you give your consent).
You are aware that data sent over the internet may be transmitted across international borders, even when the sender and recipient are from the same country. We cannot be held responsible for any actions taken or omitted by you or any third party in relation to personal data prior to our receipt of it, including but not limited to any transfer of personal data to us through a country with a lower level of data protection than that of the European Union and through any electronic means (for example, WhatsApp, Skype, Dropbox, etc.).
Furthermore, we will not accept any responsibility for the security of your data. At the same time, it is being sent over the internet unless our responsibility is made explicit based on a law that has an effect in the country.

You are entitled to receive a copy of such warranties by contacting us.
Contracts that have the EU standard contractual clauses (EU Model Clauses) will be used, which will require the entity receiving this personal data to use the standards to which they would be subject within the EEA. If some data is transferred to the US and the entity receiving the information is registered under the Privacy Shield (a framework that ensures personal data protection), it will have the same level of protection approved by the European Commission.
