About What's up! Luxembourg

What's up! Luxembourg is a service designed for residents of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and its greater region, with the aim of giving its users an overview of what happens around them. Everyone is invited to share, discuss and discover things to do, people to talk to, and places to go. What's Up! provides a centralized viewport to different content providers in the region, as well as allowing the community to add, organize and rate content.

Users can connect with the source of each post or event item to know more about it, by tapping on the relevant item. They can also organize contents by rating them, commenting about them or reporting mistakes.

By choosing to use the services provided by What's up! Luxembourg and related applications to it, the user is subject to the terms of agreement stated below. Therefore, if you use this service (i.e. the What's Up! Luxembourg software), you are expected to have read this document and accepted it. We reserve the right to amend this agreement at any time, so please check back regularly by accessing this document from the main menu of the application. Your continued use of our services constitutes your acceptance of our amended terms and policies.

Terms of Agreement

  1. Privacy

A fundamental goal of What's up! Luxembourg is to provide its users information about their community, but at the same time respect their privacy. Therefore, as long as the user is only observing content, it never asks them to enter any information that would be used by the creators of the system to identify them in real life. Users should however note that since the service provides access to external websites, those websites can ask for personal information or gather information without respecting users' privacy. What's Up! Luxembourg is not responsible for the behavior of any external website accessed within the software. The creators and the community however, carefully monitor external content referenced via the service. We will try to inspect and if necessary, take down references to such sources if they are reported to us. If you see something suspicious or unpleasant, please let us know.

What's up! Luxembourg collects certain data about how users consume contents provided by its services, and also basic information about devices that are used to access its services. Such data includes the operating system type, the operating system version, the application version, certain device IDs and so on. This information is primarily gathered to perform analysis of how the services are used, and which areas should the creators focus on to improve the quality of the service. The gathered data can also be used to identify any misuse of the service, and block malicious actions. By using the provided services by this application, you agree to share this data with the service provider. Moreover, such data is used to provide a personalized user interface, for example by showing indicators when the user has rated some content, or showing the comments written by the user.

Additional third party software libraries such as Google Maps and related services, as well as Firebase and Facebook SDKs are also integrated into this application which may collect additional data. By using this software you also give consent for the data collected by those services. We use such services to improve the quality of the application (e.g. by collecting aggregate usage data), send remote notifications and ease the communication between the client and server portions of this application.

When you use the application, the location services of your device may allow the application to know about your location. Such services are used to be able to show your location on the map, and tell you how far you are to a specific event in your area.

What's up! Luxembourg may provide access and tools to certain users to add content into its system. In case you add content covered by intellectual property (IP) rights, such as photos or text, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any content posted by you to our system.

When you delete content originally posted by you, the content will be rendered unavailable and inaccessible to the general users of the service, and will then at some point be deleted from our database (similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer). However, you understand that the removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time. Unpredictable glitches in the software may make the deletion action fail. In such cases, you can contact us to manually remove your content.

  1. User Account Security

The service assigns unique identification codes to each installed instance of the application. As long as the user does not wish to post any content to the system (i.e. events, posts, comments, messages or similar forms of content), the service does not ask the user to provide any more personal information. These codes are used to deliver notifications to users, as well as track up/down votes and visits of contents.

Users may be allowed to create accounts which would allow them to add events, posts, media, comments, and similar forms of content to the system. To create a user account, we do not ask users for their real name, age, or other information. They are asked to supply an alias, which users can freely choose based on their availability and rules defined in the system.

Users may be allowed to communicate with each other using services provided by the system. We advise them to be careful when sharing any private information. You are responsible for the information you share via this service and its consequences.
