The data collected is processed by Vibing of ABN 98 628 259 334.
Your use of our Services makes it likely that we collect and process data necessary to the proper functioning of the Application and to the supply of the Services. It can be information you share with us directly, or data we collect automatically.
2.1 Data you share directly
When you use our Services, you are required to share some information, some of which may serve to identify you. When you communicate this information, you accept that some of it will be visible to the other Members of the Application, and therefore be made public on the Application. In an effort to help you identify this information easily, it is signalled as “public” below. Vibing cannot be held liable for data published on its platform and disclosed by a Member.
The information you share contains the following data:
Data on your interactions with Vibing: we may ask you to share, or you may be in a situation where you need to give us information, for example when you contact our customer or support services, report an issue with our Services, ask for help, exercise your personal data rights, or participate in a promo, game, contest, raffle, or survey, when you share your experience with our Services, give testimonies, or answer one of our questionnaires.
When you use our Services and features, we collect information regarding your activity on the Application:
Activity data: when you access our Services and use the Application and its features, data on the way you use them may be collected and processed. More specifically, this includes your registration date, last connection, the type and number of interactions with other Members (sent vibes, received vibes, sent gratitude and received gratitude, karma sent and karma received, locations checked in), and with the third-party accounts connected to your Account (like Facebook, Instagram).
Location Data (geolocation): wthe Application’s main value and purpose is to allow Members to send other Members in their vicinity a real-time positive thought. You will be asked to authorize the collection and processing of your location data to allow Vibing to identify your proximity with other Members who agreed to be geolocated. The check-in feature lets Vibing show you profiles of Members who are in your vicinity.
Vibing can, if you deliberately agree, access your position, approximately or more precisely depending on the technology you use. Vibing does not recreate the movements and/or itineraries of its Members. The exact position or the itinerary of a Member is never available to the other Members. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time and disable your smartphone’s geolocation option. If you choose to do so, your newsfeed will no longer be updated, and you will not be able to send and receive vibes after disabling the geolocation option.
Data on the use of the messaging service: sent messages are stored on Vibing’s servers exclusively, to provide the Service and allow Members to send a vibe and gratitude exchange. Messages are strictly private and only implicate the Members involved. Vibing’s authorized managers exercise the right to view these conversations for the sole and express purpose of monitoring and eradicating negative content and bad actors, in cases of judicial request, and/or in compliance with legislative or administrative dispositions. Additionally, Messages are strictly private and are not accessible to other Members not involved in the conversation.
Device and equipment data: we collect information from the devices and equipment you use to access our Services, including server logs, which may contain information like IP addresses, version of the application, mobile model, mobile ID, language used, operating system, application crashes, and advertisement ID. Vibing cannot access its Members’ browser history. Data may be collected with cookies.
How the data collected is used: The data collected by Vibing allows us to provide the Services and make sure the Application is running smoothly, which it is contractually obligated to do, in virtue of the contract binding us with the Members (Terms of Service). Your data is therefore processed for the following purposes:
The data collected is also necessary for Vibing to fulfill its legitimate interests (improving and optimizing its Services, along with gaining a better knowledge of its Members and the ways in which they use the Services) and allow the company to run statistical studies, satisfaction surveys, and marketing analyses relating to the use of the Application and Services by the Members.
As the data processing relies on the consent of Members to have their data processed, they can withdraw it at any time; withdrawal of the consent does not affect processing carried out before the withdrawal. Vibing may process Members’ personal data in response to a legal request (search warrant, court order, or the like) or to comply with its legal, regulatory, judicial, or administrative obligations.
Lastly, Vibing can process your personal data to uncover or prevent fraudulent activities or breaches to the Service’s safety, in compliance with the law, or analyze reports of Members displaying a behavior breaching the Terms of Service.
How data is shared: Only certain Vibing employees from the customer or support services, and authorized managers process Members’ personal data for the purposes described above. These employees and authorized managers only have access to the data necessary to perform their duties.
Vibing may forward some data to a public body, if it is requested to do so, to comply with any judicial or legal request.
Lastly, we may be required to share your data for the purposes of a corporate operation, which include, but is not limited to, a restructuring, a change in control of the company, a merger, an acquisition, a transfer, or a termination of the company.
