Privacy

Privacy policy and user agreement

We don’t want to write a long privacy document and you don’t want to read it, so let’s keep this simple.

We don’t serve ads or harvest your data for any purpose beyond connecting you with the friends you choose.

That includes no analytics either, so we don’t even get data on how you’re using the app.

And we don’t have any cookies or tracking on this website.

You’re welcome! 👍

That’s also why there’s a donation option: if we don’t use ads, we’ve got to keep the costs covered somehow!

If you like what we’re doing, you can help out here: www.droppin.social/donate

We collect as little data as possible so we don’t have to worry about storing too much and breaking any regulations.

For example, we don’t know your name, your location, or your email address.

All we know is your phone number, which you explicitly give us permission to have by signing up in the app.

You also tell us the phone numbers of your friends, but otherwise this whole thing wouldn’t work now, would it?

And we can only connect you with your friends if they also sign up for Droppin. So tell your friends about Droppin or there won’t be many people to connect with!

GDPR

Your data is stored on servers in the European Union. If that’s a problem in the country you live in, what you do about that is up to you.

You control your data entirely by what you do in this app - it’s entirely up to you, and we don’t mess with it.

You can delete your data at any time through the Account screen and we won’t even be notified.

Only people who you specifically choose can see your availability, and nobody can show you their availability status unless they are already in your phone’s contacts list.

User agreement

We won’t sell your data or use it in any way not controlled by you in this app, and you agree not to act maliciously. If we have to spell out in detail what that is, then you’re probably looking for a way to act maliciously. Or a lawyer looking to pick a fight. No thanks.

So how about we all agree to play nicely and just get back to the business of being friends. Deal? Great!

Now go and build some friendships!

Privacy Policy Changes

This is still an early stage project so we anticipate that there might be some changes to this privacy page. Someone might force us to make it more official! 😱

But we’ll fight for your privacy every step of the way. We don’t want your data, we just want to make a better, more friendly world.
