When using WeTipp any of our services you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Policy.

 

This Policy is provided – also in pursuance of Section 13 of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 – to any entity having to do with WeTipp and the online-based services that are made available by WeTipp.

 

This Policy is also based on the guidelines contained in Recommendation no. 2/2001, which was adopted on 17 May 2001 by the European data protection authorities within the Working Party set up under Article 29 of European Directive 95/46/EC in order to lay down minimum requirements for the collection of personal data online - especially with regard to arrangements, timing and contents of the information to be provided by data controllers to users visiting web pages for whatever purpose.

 

The data controller is: WeTipp Ltd, Second Floor, Cardiff House, Tilling Road, London, NW2 1LJ UK, Company Number 8347751.

Core Principles

Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

 

(i) We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties:

(a) with your consent;

(b) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions;

(c) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you;

(d) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or

(e) as necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or protect the rights, property, or safety of WeTipp, our members and visitors, and the public.

(ii) We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

 

If you have any concern about providing information to us or having such information displayed on WeTipp or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Policy and the Terms of Service, you should not become a member, visit our websites, apps or otherwise use our WeTipp. If you have already registered, you can close your accounts.

 

The personal information that you provide to us may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your life that are not expressly stated on your profile (for example, your picture or your name may reveal your gender). By providing personal information to us when you create or update your account and profile, you are expressly and voluntarily accepting the terms and conditions of our Terms of Service and freely accepting and agreeing to our processing of your personal information in ways set out by this Policy. Supplying to us any information deemed “sensitive” by applicable law is entirely voluntary on your part. You can withdraw or modify your consent to our collection and processing of the information you provide at any time, in accordance with the terms of this Policy and the Terms of Services, by changing your account settings or your profile on WeTipp or by closing your WeTipp account.

What we collect

 We gather information about you in a range of ways. 

Information You Give Us. When you log into WeTipp with your Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin account, we collect your name, surname, email address, profile thumbnail, sex, age‎  and we access other information you’ve added on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin in order to provide a personalized experience on WeTipp. When you login with Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin to WeTipp, we use a technology called OAuth to authorize WeTipp to access that account. OAuth is a secure protocol that gives us access to your data without actually giving us your password. You can revoke OAuth access either within WeTipp or within the third party service.

To create an account on WeTipp, you must provide us with at least your name, surname, email address and a password and agree to our Terms of Service and this Policy. You may provide additional information during the registration flow (for example, tags of interest, tags of skills, nationality, location, mobility experiences, personal description, personal website, social link & more) to help you build your profile and to provide you more customized services. You understand that, by creating an account, we and others will be able to identify you by your WeTipp profile. We may also ask for your credit card details if you purchase certain additional services.

We also collect: (i) information and content you directly give us on WeTipp, like extra profile information that you provide after you create an account for your user profile and user content; (ii) information about how you use WeTipp, such as when you log in, create or share, and message or communicate with others and the types of content you view or engage with or the frequency and duration of your activities.

We may get information about you from other sources, for example information that other people or your Comunities (such as non Profits Organizations, Co-working spaces and Alumni organizations and more) provide when they use WeTipp or information provided by third parties allowed to use our developer platform. We collect information about how you interact with people and Comunities you are connected to. People and Comunities you are connected to may share or disclose information about you. Third parties allowed to use our developer platform may share or disclose information about you if you have “opted in” (for example during your registration in a white label platform that uses our developer platform, you can "opt in" to be part of WeTipp).

Information Automatically Collected. Depending on the permissions you’ve granted, we automatically log information about you and your device. For example, when visiting WeTipp we log‎ your device operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, device identifiers, device locations, including specific geographic locations, such as through GPS, Bluetooth, or WiFi signals, connection information such as the name of your mobile operator, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number and IP address.

Other.  WeTipp is a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always seeking to improve WeTipp. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of new information. Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information.
