Janene Pieters reports:

Dating app Tinder violates the privacy of its users. The app stores all kinds of personal information from a user’s Facebook account and shares it with third parties. Its privacy terms are also far too vague and broadly worded, according to consumers’ organization Consumentenbond.

Those who download the Tinder app have to link it to their Facebook account, according to the organization. Tinder then takes the user’s email address, profile name, friend list, date of birth, gender, employment, sexual preference, videos and likes and stores it. Tinder also holds the right to share this information with third parties, such as advertisers.
