What Personal Data do We Process?

We provide two possibilities to create account(s) on our site:

  • Signing up as a single Model: you can register directly and individually as a Model;
  • Signing up as a Studio: you can create a Studio account including several Models accounts. If you are the creator of the account, and therefore named “Studio”, you can either be (i) a Model yourself willing to provide services on our site and open a Model account under your Studio account, (ii) or a person (natural or legal) having contracted with Models and opening a Studio account to enable the provision of services by them.

This Privacy Policy applies to you, whether you are a Model who registers individually or under a Studio account, or if you are a Studio.

We collect, use, share, transfer, and store different types of your personal data as a result of your registration and provision of adult entertainment services or other services on our site.

The personal data we collect includes the following categories of data:

When you register as a Model on our site or when your Studio registers you on the site, you or the Studio choose the category under which you wish to provide services. Due to the explicit meaning of each category name, it is possible that the chosen category reflects your sexual orientation and sexual life. In the course of your registration, we also ask you to provide us with your sexual preferences. We understand that this may not explicitly reflect information about your life outside of the site. It may only be a role you choose to play for the provision of the services. However, in order to provide you with the highest level of data protection, we treat this information as sensitive.

In addition, given the nature of our site, and depending on what you decide to show to customers, we may have explicit sexual content (uploaded pictures) about you.
