Tinder is unclear about how it notifies users of changes to its privacy policy, which occur occasionally

Tinder says that users should check for "the most recent version, which is the version that applies." If the changes are notable or material, Tinder says it notifies users by "reasonable means," which it says could include "notifications through the Services or via email." Continued use of Tinder after changes to the privacy policies have been enacted mean consent to those changes, Tinder says.

After its Facebook-based log-in, Tinder has access to and can use all of your Facebook data

In order to register as a user with Tinder, you will be asked to sign in using your Facebook login. If you do so, you authorize us to access certain Facebook account information, such as your public Facebook profile (consistent with your privacy settings in Facebook), your email address, interests, likes, gender, birthday, education history, relationship interests, current city, photos, personal description, friend list, and information about and photos of your Facebook friends who might be common Facebook friends with other Tinder users. You will also be asked to allow Tinder to collect your location information from your device when you download or use the Service. In addition, we may collect and store any personal information you provide while using our Service or in some other manner. This may include identifying information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information. You may also provide us photos, a personal description and information about your gender and preferences for recommendations, such as search distance, age range and gender. If you chat with other Tinder users, you provide us the content of your chats, and if you contact us with a customer service or other inquiry, you provide us with the content of that communication.
