Terms and Conditions

Human readable excerpt

We want to enrich the world and make something even greater out of it. In our opinion, people should be as free as possible. May it be physically, psychologically or digital. Unfortunately or luckily, by law and by custom, we have to enlist all prohibitions, permissions and plenty of other things to overcome and avoid possible prosecution that may happen when operating an app and a platform in the Internet. However, our general goal is to provide a platform with great and collaborative user experience. Be assured that we created terms in respect to legal situations. Out of this reason, we point out some goals how we want to operate STAPPZ in a human-readable overview:

Public information
Everything you post is public and associated with the position where you have been in the moment of the post. This way, we can enrich the world together and share our experiences locally. We know that some people are afraid of location based privacy. Therefore, we respect your privacy concerns by giving you a free choice about your username. However, any misuse is still and logically forbidden.

Visible Information
Currently, other users can see a part of your user profile and which STAPPZ you marked as saved. However, the email address is only visible to yourself. Other users can also not see your current location. We will add a feature that you – and only you- can see your own STAPPZ and it does not matter where you are. We consider it as your choice what you share. Other users cannot reveal all the posts of you. If you want to show all of your own posts to other users, you need to add them all to your favorites. We do not support this in our API and neither do we want to unlock this kind of feature in the future, because we care for privacy. If we introduce this kind of feature you will be asked before anything is shared. Only registered users can see your profile and your favorites. Users that just use the app and which did not register cannot see your profile.

What do we store and why?
– We try to collect almost no personal information except the data we need to operate STAPPZ, e.g. your email address or your position when you post something. We will track as less as possible user specific data.
We try ensure user data control. For instance other Users save your STAPP and then you delete the STAPP- it is also gone in the savings of the others.

In order to provide users the possibility to share their content with another, you give us rights for the content you share with STAPPZ. This means duplication, recomposition rights and similar. However, you also provide us with the right to use your content for advertisement. This is needed because someone needs to pay for the servers and we have to live of something, too. We mark out that the right for advertisement and other rights are only intended to be used for our own advertisement. There is no business plan about selling user data.

Business Model
We are open and straightforward with our business model. In general, we plan a mixture of in-app payments for premium stuff and non-persuasive advertisement. We will try to keep as much free as possible. The functionally you have today is the absolute goal to stay free and we plan even more free functionality.
In our opinion, we consider this approach to use advertisement combined with a few premium features as much more convenient as to collect and sell your user data.

Expected behavior
Behave normal, think collaborative, respect the laws around the world and work together. Clearly, you must not abuse, harass, threaten, invade the privacy of, or intimidate any situation nor historic events, people no matter if they are Stappz users or not. Follow the laws of the humanity and of your country.

We try to ensure our platform is secure and invest into encryption and similar things. This consumes time and money. We are just humans and work as hard as possible. Therefore, please don’t hack our App or the Stappz platform. If you find a bug or vulnerability write us an email and we will fix it.

Legal note
The prior description is not superseding and neither complementing our Terms and Conditions or Data Privacy Statement. It just represents a way how we intent to operate the STAPPZ service. We do not take any responsibility that this description does reflect our Terms of use or any ways how our STAPPZ service operates. However, in the meaning to get happy and satisfied users, we try to keep it reflecting it. Yet, we recommend you read all of the following terms:
