Scope of application
Collection and use of data
If WhatNow collects or will collect in a future build personal data only insofar as you voluntarily provide it and to the extent that such collection is permitted by law or agreed to by written consent. Personal data encompasses any information concerning the personal or factual information about a specified or specifiable natural person in accordance with Google Play Developer Distribution. This includes information such as name and/or physical address and/or e-mail address and/or your location and/or telephone number and/or, if applicable, user data.
Disclosure of data
You may be able to use the WhatNow products both with and without registration. When registering, you will have to specify your e-mail address and choose a password. This data is necessary to ensure that you will be able to take advantage of the full range of services offered. Last but not least, we might need this, and possibly other data, to respond to your requests, questions and critique. You might also have the option of uploading a profile picture and choosing a username. This occurs solely on a voluntary basis. We tend to use personal information to provide a safe, effective and user-relevant experience on our WhatNow app, including for
- internet-based retrieval of content,
- anonymous statistical analysis for studies in order to modify the Apps and design them user-friendly,
- the ability to use the invite feature to recommend the product to your friends and acquaintances (email address),
- the ability to use social & community features, e.g. to share content and / or news-articles with other users on social networks or e-mail, mark articles with the “like-button”, and others.
Social sign in
If social sign is in the application or will be added in a future build we will be offering the opportunity to register directly on our products with your existing profile from selected social networks. WhatNow might be using “Facebook Sign In,” “Google+ Sign In,” “Twitter Sign Up,” and “Microsoft Account Sign In” (for Windows phones). If you choose to use one of these signup options, you will be forwarded to the respective site, where you will be led through the signup process. Using the data transmitted from the respective social network provider, we then create your user account, of course without saving your friend lists and contacts. There is no permanent link between your user account and the Facebook, Google or Twitter account. Please see the privacy policies of Facebook, Google or Twitter for more information concerning the purpose and scope of their data collection, their further processing and use of data, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy.
- User-entered data
The app only uses push notifications with your consent. You can always choose the way these notifications will be displayed on your device or even disable push notifications by adjusting your device settings.
In addition, if you have registered with your e-mail address you will be informed via mail in a summary about your activities within the app as well as the activities related to your favorite club.
If the WhatNow apps use or will use in a future build social plugins from various social networks you will be able to, for example, recommend content to a friend or use the sharing functions. In our app, we might be using the following plug-ins (not operated by WhatNow): Facebook, Twitter, and your email program on the operating system iOS. On the operating systems Android and Windows Phone, additional plug-ins may be used and include all installed apps with a sharing function (e.g. LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, etc.). If you want to use one or more of these services, you must register there. Please check the privacy policies of these third-party plug-in services such as Facebook Facebook, Google+, Twitter etc. for information on the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of your data, as well as your rights in this respect and changing settings options in order to protect your privacy.
If Statistical data is collected or will be collected in a future build, when users access the WhatNow app, this data will not be associated with your person. This data collection serves to improve WhatNow and to provide you as the user with the most extensive functionality possible.
We might be using web beacons in this app, which can be explained as a simple programming code that lets us know when the app has been displayed or clicked on. To this end, WhatNow uses certified products, some of which comply with the U.S. - EU Safe Harbor Principles. Furthermore, WhatNow might use the technology Google advertising-ID (advertising ID), IP and Mac addresses, also only collected anonymously. It is not possible to draw a connection between your data and your person through these systems.
By using the WhatNow apps, you agree to the third-party processing of data for the purpose outlined above. You can disable these services in the app using a browser add-on if you do not want WhatNow to analyze your data:
Deletion, access to and correction of data
We might offer a service in which you choose to delete your data insofar as it is no longer required for the aforementioned purposes. If you decide to delete your account, we also delete all data from your account. Data that you have shared publicly with others remains available, since it belongs to the account of a third party or is on a public platform. If data must be retained for legal reasons, it will be locked. The data is then no longer available for further use.
