    6. FURTHER INFORMATION ON CoParents.com & CoParents.co.uk DATA PROCESSING

    Data processing, as specified under heading 6 in the declaration form for the “data processing declaration,” gathers information from the different Subscriber categories (Visitor, Privileged) when they register for our matching service and other service functions.
    The declarant gathers in this circumstance a significant amount of information from the people concerned, one question being whether they are unmarried or in a couple.
    The declarant gathers personal data revealing the sexual orientation of Subscribers, namely if they are heterosexual or homosexual.
    Answering this question is optional, it is however pertinent to the purpose for which the user is registered, namely matching services offered by the declarant for the purpose called coparentality.
    It is homosexual people who have this as a primary resort for having children and becoming parents.
    Coparentality is not defined by any specific legal statute, but conforms to established practice of shared parental rights and responsibilities toward a child, whether the parents are homosexual or heterosexual. 
    The Coparentality Project, within the meaning of the services offered by the declarant, is a project to raise a child between two parents: single, married or divorced. It matters not whether they are in a couple, or if they are of the same sex.
    The services of the declarant are also open to the people who wish to be sperm donor, or those in search sperm donors.
    The purpose of the question relating to sexual orientation is thus simply to inform other subscribers about the profile of the subscriber concerned, and to check, on the basis of this criteria, but also the whole of the other criteria of each subscriber, whether this profile corresponds or not to the object of their search.
    The declarant wishes to draw the attention of the CNIL to the strictly anonymous character of each subscriber profile. The information thus collected from each, as published on the Site and accessible to all, is not name specific in any case, nor does it contain any data making it possible to identify the people concerned.
    Personal information is communicated only by the people concerned, within the context of matching made possible through the services offered.
    There is thus no personal data communication which can be carried out independently of the will of the people concerned.
