What do dating apps know about their users?

Let’s start at the beginning. You create an account, add some information about yourself, such as name, location, age or gender. In your description you briefly explain what you are looking for or what kind of person you are. And at the end you upload a photo. Additionally, you select your preferences and start using the app.
