1. Myvayk users and visitors to our site

Myvayk is a media sharing and meeting place for everyone, and we provide that service by operating social network app offering users the opportunity to connect to our global community of users.
To join the Myvayk network you will have to complete our registration form, where we ask you to provide us with information about you such as your name, your email address, your gender, your date of birth, your location details. You also have the opportunity to provide other details about yourself, but these are optional. Because you control your user profile, these details are available to you at any time by accessing your “Profile” page, which gives you the chance to correct or update (other than gender and email address) your information at any time by just logging in to Myvayk.
We may from time to time allow our employees to use the product for testing and user engagement purposes.
For safety and security and to ensure you have the best possible user experience, we require users to verify their accounts (because we want to make sure you are not a robot!) and might ask for your phone number. Don’t worry! This is only to make sure you are a real human being!

How do I change my Profile?
You can review and revise your profile information at any time. Once you register, you will be able to review and change much of your personal information including:
Your name and contact email address;
Your profile, photographs, and videos;
Please promptly update your information if it changes by signing-in to your account and following the screen prompts. We strongly urge you to periodically change your password to help reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your account information.
Users in certain jurisdictions are, in accordance with applicable law, entitled to exercise a right of access to personal information about themselves by asking for a copy of the information we hold about them (for which, where allowed by law, we may charge a small fee). Please put any such request in writing and using our contact form: Myvayk.com
Can I deactivate or delete my Profile?
Users of the Myvayk network have the following choices to delete their profile from our database:
- Send a message via Myvayk.com
- Sign in with your password and delete your profile. These options are available from your “Settings” page.
If you want to stop using your account it will be initially deactivated. This means that no user will be able to search for you on our website or app although they may still see you profile from direct cached links, but it will not be deleted. We save your profile information in case you later decide to restore your account. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and in doing so expect us to maintain their information until they return to Myvayk. You will therefore be able to restore your account and your profile in its entirety.
After prolonged lack of use your account may be permanently deleted from Myvayk. We delete photographs from our servers within 14 days from the expiration of the deactivation period while other information (such as contact history) is deleted by us over a longer timescale, by way of housekeeping on a periodic basis. You should only delete your account if you are certain you never want to use it.
Warning: Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed on the Internet to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.
Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies to enable restoration, but will not be available to others in the meantime.
What happens if I do nothing?
If you have not signed in to Myvayk for three months, we may remove your Profile as part of our data cleansing process.
Your Myvayk account is non-transferable and any rights to your profile or contents within your account will be cancelled upon your death.
