What we collect and how we use it
We use technologies like cookies (small files stored by your browser or operating system), web beacons, or unique device identifiers to anonymously identify your computer or device. Our system also logs information like your browser, operating system, IP address (as webserver logs) and anonymous usage data so we can deliver a better experience.
Only If you create an account on Locandy by using the website or a mobile device, we require your email address to identify your account. You can connect mobile devices to your account and authorize them to upload game results, ratings and photos to your account on our website. If you choose not to register with Locandy, you can use our software anonymously.
By registering you can upload quest-results (your comments) and photos. Quest-results and the final logging-photo are made public on the homepage of the quest, and your public profile page (this is like public geocaching logs). Other photos or albums made during the game or tour are private, unless you share them by publishing the link from your profile page. Photos shared during the gameplay are processed exclusively by iOS and Android. We do not actively secure uploaded photos so that you may share them at any time, but the access URLs are not published anywhere, except on your private profile page.
What we share
We do not sell, trade, or rent users personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated anonymous and demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above.
What we don’t collect
If you are standard user and visit our website, we do not collect personally identifiable information about you, except your email-address for login purposes. If you are commercial customer or author we may require additional name and address data for billing and copyright purposes. In other words, we do not collect information such as your name, address, phone number if you are standard user. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information. We generally do not collect nor share personally identifiable information (such as name, address, or phone) with other companies.
We use OAuth authentication on our website. You can register at Locandy using one of the following Services: Twitter, Facebook, Google or Github. Locandy never sees your account password and never communicates any information to the authenticating servers.
OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows users to approve application to act on their behalf without sharing their password. More information can be found at oauth.net or in the excellent Beginner’s Guide to OAuth from Hueniverse. See Twitter’s website for more information about oAuth specific to their service.
You can at any time revoke permission to use your third-party account for authentication. You can only do this using the third-party website (twitter.com, facebook.com, github.com, etc.). If you do so, you will no longer be able to upload game results and photos to Locandy.
Third Party, Services, Ads and Analytics
Ad companies may use and collect anonymous data about your interests to customize content and advertising here and in other sites and applications. Interest and location data may be linked to your device, but is not linked to your identity. Analytics companies may access anonymous data (such as your IP address or device ID) to help us understand how our services are used. They use this data solely on our behalf. They do not share it except in aggregate form; no data is shared as to any individual user. In order to serve you, we may share your anonymous information with other companies, including vendors and contractors. Their use of information is limited to these purposes, and subject to agreements that require them to keep the information confidential. Our vendors provide assurance that they take reasonable steps to safeguard the data they hold on our behalf, although data security cannot be guaranteed. To operate the service, we also may make identifiable and anonymous information available to third parties in these limited circumstances: (1) with your express consent, (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, (3) when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our rights or property, or (4) to any successor or purchaser in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution or sale of assets. Your consent will not be required for disclosure in these cases, but we will attempt to notify you, to the extent permitted by law to do so. Information we collect may be stored or processed on computers located in any country where we do business.
We take reasonable steps to secure your information against unauthorized access or disclosure. We encrypt transmission of data on pages where you provide payment information. However, no security or encryption method can be guaranteed to protect information from hackers or human error.
