  • email address - is automatically collected from your Facebook or Google account, when the user logs in through Social Media. It can be manually entered by the user when logging in with email and password. A user's email address is not visible anywhere in the Application, being used only for authentication;
  • information about the device of the user (operating system, type of smartphone (model), the network he uses, GPS location (optionally, if it has given its consent in the Application), this information being used for statistical purposes only;
  • phone number - is required only for the use of the Incident Reporting Module within the Application. The phone number is not made public but is used to validate the person once when he first sends the referral.

For unauthenticated users, the following data is collected:
  • information about the device of the user (operating system, type of smartphone (model), the network he uses, GPS location (optionally, if it has given its consent in the Application), this information being used for statistical purposes only;

  1. application (from the list of events, a webpage is opened where the user is asked for his name, surname and email. These data reaches the list of Mailchimp subscribers, who will receive a weekly newsletter);
  2. public website (in the website’s footer there is a newsletter subscription form. The user has to fill in his first name, last name and email. These data reaches the list of Mailchimp subscribers, who will receive a weekly newsletter);
  • statistics and reports - the Application users’ data are processed:
  1. with Google Analytics, generating automated marketing statistics in order to better promote the Application;
  2. to generate customized marketing reports that are made and sent by the Platform’s owner.
In both situations, the marketing statistics remain anonymous and are not made public.

The collection of personal data is done:
  • automatically, when creating a new user account through social platforms (Facebook or Google), including: name, surname, email, photo, device data, GPS location (optional)

The user may at any time request the modification or deletion of personal data by using the contact form in the Application.

Google Analytics  (outside the EU), where user data is stored for statistical and marketing purposes;

Amazon (Frankfurt, EU), where the users’ profile pictures are stored (when that’s the case), Amazon being a private storage service;
Google Cloud (EU), where our server and database are located.
What security measures have we implemented?
We are constantly concerned with the implementation of the necessary security measures to minimize the risks of unauthorized access to data and implicitly the impact on the privacy of the users:
  • SSL standard for the encryption of data flow;
  • OAUTH standard for user authentication;
  • HMAC - is used to verify (authenticate) that the data has not been altered or replaced.
  • limiting the number of IPs from which the server where we have the database and the web server can be accessed;
