You information might also be available to the general public if you have shared that information through other platforms outside the Application (e.g. Facebook). You can always amend the setting of the information you share under Discovery Preferences.

  1. Registration with Third-Party Authentication Services
  1. The Application uses third-party authentication services (each, an "Authentication Service") for account registration and credentialing purposes.
  2. A prerequisite for the third authentication is that Users are registered with the respective third-party service and enter the required credentials. The authentication will be handled by our server, the actual application process will be performed directly by the third party.
  3. Within the scope of the authentication process we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged under this user ID. We also receive a user handle which is an user ID that is only suitable for authentication purposes. Other data we receive depends on the used authentication service and the user's chosen permissions. Usually this is the username and the email address. In the case of Facebook, the accessible data encompasses the so-called "public information" which everyone can see. These include your name, gender, username, user ID (account number), profile picture, cover photo and networks (if you choose to add these).
  4. Your third-party password is neither visible to us nor will it be stored by us.
  5. Please note that your data may be synchronized with the third-party Authentication Service's data but such sync is not guaranteed, especially in events such as changes to your email address.  
  6. If you want to disconnect the link between the third-party Authentication Service and the Application, you may cancel this connection within your user account at the third-party.
  7. Users are advised to consider that in the context of the use of third-party Authentication Services in addition to our Terms and this Privacy Policy, the terms of use and data usage policies of the third-party may apply.

  2. The location data is processed and stored only for the duration that is required for the provision of the location-related services.
  3. You will be asked for permission before we access your location data and you may turn the location features off any time, which might, however, reduce the Applications functionability. In such case we will point it out to you.
  1. Information Sharing
  1. The Application allows Users to meet other Users and, in that sense, requires exchange of information, for instance information about specific locations or events. For this purpose, we use your information to conduct comparisons of Users’ information with each other (so-called Match-seeking) and provide it to other Users. For example, you may be shown the profile, preferences, pictures, locations and destinations of other Users either when you are conducting a search or as suggestions from the Application. This information can be obtained by means of the Application itself (e.g. through entries you or through functions that determine your location). Furthermore, this information can also be obtained from other sources (e.g. social networks) as long as you have agreed to the exchange of information.
  2. If you use the Application to find out about specific places, local, cultural or commercial offers (e.g. hotels, events, restaurants, museums), we may inform you of such places or offers also by way of user messages within the Application, e-mails or push messages.
  3. We may also use your information as a basis for communicating and presenting you interest-related or location-based third-party information (e.g. concerning hotels, events, special promotions such as discounts, tickets, etc.).
  4. We may share information, including personal information, with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulfilling orders, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, ad tracking and analytics, member screenings, supporting our Application functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Application. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
