IveTime's main purpose is to show you friends that have time when you have. And who are interested into the same or similiar activities.
The results are visualized as a cards stack.
A card of that stack is called a match.
A match is only shown in case
Or you enabled the 'meet new people' feature as well as any other person within your preferred radius, time frame and specifying similar activities.
These 'new people' won't see your mobile number as well.
At the beginning - although you did not enable 'meet new people', sometimes, we suggest you new persons - who enabled the 'new people' feature - without showing your profile to them.
On a match we try to suggest both of you a suitable venue that fits to the preferred activity. This venue is supposed to be close to the mid point between both of you.
If you did not specify any preferred activity possibly we do suggest you one per match.
There is also a single activity. Here we suggest you an activity that can be done on your own. If we can, we also suggest you a suitable location where you can do this.
Von uns und anderen Diensten erfasste Daten
What information does the Application obtain and how is it used?
The Application obtains the information you provide when you download and setup the Application.
User Provided Information
Voluntary entered data, that is saved in our database and that is shown to other users in case of a match:
Your mobile phone number is required and used in order to create a unique account of yours and connect your profile to people you actually know in reality. This kind of registration with us is obligatory due to a proper functionality. For instance, it's only possible to see any of your personal contacts (so called 'match') within the app in case a valid mobile number was used during the registration, your mobile address book (contact list) includes a contact and its correct mobile number, this particular contact includes your mobile number and uses IveTime as well (except if both of you enabled the 'new people' feature).
All of these data is shown on match-cards and partly (e.g. user name) within the chat to make it easier for other contacts to recognize you.
Furthermore it's only publicly visible in case you enabled the 'meet new people' feature.
Automatically obtained data by us
necessary to import your personal contacts and save them into our database
including their mobile phone number in order to create matches.
We only use your personal contacts to match you against other users. With other words only users that are included in your address book and who have you included in their address book will see each other within the application per default.
Your mobile phone number will be never shown to other users.
Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?
When you visit the mobile application, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location in order to display only contacts that are close to you and suitable venues that are fitting the center between you and another contact.
If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your account settings or in your mobile phone settings and/or within the mobile application.
In this case we cannot guarantee a proper functionality of our app.
We won't show your position to any other user at any time - only the distance between you and your match partner - except you showed it manually within the chat.
We use Google Firebase (https://firebase.google.com/)
in order to send you push notifications or instance when you got a match or received a chat message.
Regarding a match your so called push id, a user name and an activity is sent to Google Firebase.
Regarding chat messages a push id is sent to Google Firebase, as well as the chat message itself and a sender's name.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration https://www.firebase.com/terms/privacy-policy.html.
In order to get in touch with the contact of a match, you can use IveTime's chat. Technically we're using SendBird (http://sendbird.com)
to exchange chat messages between users.
For this kind of communication it's necessary that we send SendBird a hash of your mobile number (i.e. they won't get the actual mobile number but a pseudonymed version of it), the name you entered in the app, your profile picture (in case you uploaded one or imported it via Facebook) and the push id of your device.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration https://sendbird.com/privacy.
Anonymous usage data
By using IveTime you understand that we gather anonymous data just like your device or country for instance.
This is done by using Flurry (https://y.flurry.com/). We'll track so called in-app events as well (e.g. starting IveTime or pressing the IveTime button).
This is necessary since we are interested into optimizing the apps and creating a better user experience.
Regarding this anonymous events are sent to Flurry. It's possible to identify your type of device as well as regional and demographic data.
You can opt-out at every time using the following link: http://www.flurry.com/user-opt-out.html. By doing so we are able to benchmark user behavior in general and thus we will optimize IveTime for you.
But please have in mind, this is done anonymously i.e. not related with your personal data.
We use Google Fabric /Crashlytics (https://get.fabric.io/) in order to pursue and solve crashes. Therefore the used type of your device as well as anonymous events are transferred to Fabric.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration https://fabric.io/terms.
In order to suggest you a venue regarding a match, we calculate the distance between you and your match partner. This calculated coordinate is sent to the database foursquare (https://de.foursquare.com/) to request a suitable venue like stores or similar. This request has no direct connection to the users themselves.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration https://foursquare.com/legal/privacy.
If you decide to connect with Facebook within the (https://www.facebook.com/) you are able to:
(1) import a profile picture and description from your public Facebook account to our database.
This imported data is saved in our database and shown to your match partners.
(2) import your friend list to our database.
Only Facebook friends who also using IveTime are imported into our database and used for further IveTime matches with you
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration https://www.facebook.com/legal/FB_Work_Privacy.
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
In order to show a suitable venue on a map, we generate a link using Google Maps (https://www.google.de/maps) . In this case Google Maps receives a coordinate that is not related with your user.
You are also able to send your coordinates to a match partner. Your match partner will then be able to visualize these coordinates on Google Maps.
To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
