These terms and conditions supplement the General Terms and Conditions for the Use of getupp.
1. Data Collection
1.1 After the User successfully logs into getupp with the User’s Facebook account for the first time, getupp stores the User’s first and last name, email address and unique Facebook identification number (“UID”).
1.2 If the User creates a new commitment, getupp stores the data entered by the User:
- the category of the commitment,
- the entered description,
- geographic coordinates and address information for the chosen target location,
- the date, time of day, and tolerance in minutes,
- values of user-selectable options for the commitment (e.g. whether a commitment is to be announced on Facebook).
1.3 The User’s geographic position is never transmitted to getupp. The verification of the User’s geographic position is carried out within the app on the User’s mobile device. getupp only records whether the app reported to a getupp server that the User successfully completed the commitment, i.e. whether the User was present somewhere inside the target area previously specified for the commitment and triggered the App’s verification function during the specified time window.
1.4 In order to optimize the user experience getupp stores the User’s settings (e.g. the language setting) on the website and in the App. Furthermore, getupp records certain information important for the contractual relationship between the User and getupp, e.g. the date and time of the User’s first login.
1.5 When a record in the getupp database is created or updated the point in time (“timestamp”) at which the record was created or updated is stored along with the other data of the record. Thus, certain actions of the User on the website and in the App lead to a timestamp for the action being recorded in the getupp database. This way getupp stores for example the date and time of the User’s last login, and the date and time at which a commitment was created or completed. getupp uses such timestamps only for technically optimizing the database access and ensuring the data’s integrity.
2. Use of data
2.1 Data collected as described above will be processed and used for the services provided to the User resulting from the concluded contract.
2.2 getupp does not sell, rent, or otherwise provide personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes.
2.3 Other users of getupp who are connected to the User on Facebook (“friends” of the User) can see the User’s full name, the User’s Facebook profile picture, and information about the User’s active and past commitments. Whether the friends can see a commitment’s time and location is specified by the User when the User creates the Commitment.
2.5 New commitments of the User are temporarily displayed on the welcome page www.getupp.com and are thus visible to all visitors of the welcome page. Commitments are only displayed on the welcome page if they are also announced on Facebook. Only the profile picture of the User, the first name of the User and the description of the commitment are displayed on the welcome page. If the User does not want new commitments to be displayed on the welcome page, the User can deactivate the respective option on the “settings” page on www.getupp.com.
3. Data Access by the User
After a login with the User’s Facebook account, the User can view the User’s active and past commitments, add new commitments, or completely delete the User’s getupp account. It is not possible to alter or delete individual active or past commitments.
4. Protocol data and Cookies
4.1 While using the getupp website or App, data is exchanged between the User’s computer or other device and a getupp server using the HTTP network protocol. Due to the communication standards on the internet every request to a server involves the transmission of the following data to the server:
- IP address of the User (or of the proxy server that is used by the User to access the internet),
- URL of the requested HTML page or other file,
- URL of the previously visited page or other file (“Referrer URL”)
- Information about the User’s browser and operating system,
- the browser’s language,
- date and time of the server request.
4.2 getupp stores the data listed in 4.1 for up to seven days in “server-logs” for the sole purpose of investigating or defending against attacks on or abuse of the getupp service. getupp does not link the information stored in server logs to individual persons, but reserves the right to use such data in situations where there is evidence that users violate German law or the Terms of Service of getupp.
4.3 getupp uses “cookies” (small text files that are stored on the User’s computer or other device) on its website to simplify the website’s use and to statistically evaluate anonymized data about the usage of the website (see 5.2 below). Cookies may store settings of the User or other information. The User can delete existing cookies and block future cookies in the settings of the User’s browser. However, this may restrict the functionality of the website.
5. Integration of Google and Facebook
6. Revocation, Information and Contact
The User may revoke the User’s consent in the collection, processing and use of its data at any time for the future by cancelling the User’s getupp membership. In the event of any questions related to the collection, processing or use of the User’s personal data or for any other questions related to the User’s data the User may contact email@example.com.
