Privacy Policy

In the effective version of April 25th, 2016.

Idea Hub GmbH is the technical implementation partner for the use of the app at event you are visiting (event organizer). We would now like to inform you about the following:

What information does the app collect, how is it collected, and how does Idea Hub GmbH use it?

  1. Introduction
  2. Idea Hub GmbH is committed to your privacy and the privacy of your information. This Privacy Policy applies to the information that users transmit to Idea Hub GmbH through the app. This Privacy Policy informs you of what information the app collects from you and how Idea Hub GmbH uses that information. By using or accessing the app, you are accepting the proceedings described in this Privacy Policy.
  3. Information about the Participants at the Event
  4. First of all, you control how much information you provide when you attend this Event and use this app. You can create social profiles by providing Idea Hub GmbH with certain personal information, such as your name, email address, photo, information about you and your contacts on social networks (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter), and any other personal or preference information that you choose to provide to us. In addition, you can add tags via free form text boxes that provide additional personal information you choose to share.
    Furthermore, the app may also collect information about your profile, such as your current and past employment positions, educational history, and any event-specific information, including your stated interests, provided to us by you or the event organizer.
    The information you provide in the app will only be used at the event you are attending and where you are using the app.
    At the event, the information you share is displayed on a profile page within the app, accessible to other users of the same app at the same event via Search, Attendees, and the Networking Rooms. These profiles are ONLY accessible to users of the same app at the same event.
    All of the information you choose to provide in the app will be shared with and available to the Event Organizer, so you should read and review their privacy policy.
  5. Information about The Event Organizer
  6. The Event Organizer, respectively the customer of Idea Hub GmbH, may choose to pre-populate the app for the event with objects such as event agendas, customer lists, exhibitor lists, and more. The information the event organizer provides is only shared with end users of the app for that specific event.
    Idea Hub GmbH NEVER shares event-specific information provided by our customers with any third party and we do not make event-specific information available to end users at a different event.
  7. Information about Idea Hub’s use of raw data and the Law
  8. Idea Hub GmbH collects data from event attendee usage of the app. Idea Hub GmbH uses the information collected from you on to:
    1. Authenticate your visits;
    2. Govern your account and customize the service we provide to you and other users;
    3. Enable you to share your information and communicate with other users
    4. Make recommendations about users that may interest you and other users;
    5. Permit other users to find you through search or browsing;
    6. Help you connect to third-party services to exchange information such as contacts and calendar events;
    7. Contact you about announcements from Match-app or other users or parties (e.g. exhibitors) from time to time;
    8. Execute research using the collected information to manage and improve our service;
    9. Provide anonymous reporting for internal and external entities, including work with other vendors that help Match-app with data analysis, for example for product efficacy studies and market analysis
    Idea Hub GmbH may enhance or merge Personally Identifiable Information with your other information and with data from third parties in order to better develop, market and provide our products, services and software. These third parties are all bound by this Privacy Policy and to not use the information for any purpose other than providing services to Idea Hub GmbH and to you under our direction. Idea Hub GmbH stores Personally Identifiable Information in locations outside the direct control of Idea Hub GmbH (for instance, on servers co-located with hosting providers).
    Idea Hub GmbH will NEVER use any individual information you provide us or event-specific information that our customers choose to pre-populate into an App with any third party. We will NOT give advertisers or anyone else personal information about you or our customers without specific authorization to do so.
    Of course, notwithstanding anything in this policy to the contrary, we will provide personal information if we are or believe that we are legally required to do so pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, other legal requirement or applicable law.
  9. Information about the Ownership of Attendee Data
  10. The information available in our apps about event participants (attendees) is provided by the participant to the event organizer. The event organizer retains sole responsibility over event attendees’ personal information initially shared during the event. The event organizer may have requested during event registration for the attendee to opt-in to social participation through both offline and online tools, which agreement constitutes agreed inclusion in the app. Event attendees who later wish to opt-out of participating and sharing their information in the app must make the request to the event organizer.
  11. Information about the Data Protection
  12. Idea Hub GmbH uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. The app uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving data. We have security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from or about you.
    We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the app or guarantee that your information on the site may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. In the event that Personally Identifiable Information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Idea Hub GmbH will promptly notify those users whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by applicable law.
  13. Changes to this Privacy Policy
  14. This Privacy Policy will be updated from time to time. A current revision date will be noted at the bottom of the page at all times. To keep up-to-date on the current privacy policy, please visit this page periodically.
