In the mobile app UrbanX you can have other Users or Meetups shown on the so-called „Radar“ and you can have the home locations of users in their profiles shown as well as make your own home location visible in your profile. In all cases it is necessary to collect location data. This data is only used to obtain suitable search results for you and other Users, to localise Meetups and to complete User Profiles.
If you open the app for the first time we ask for your permission to use the locations services of your device. However, you are able to deactivate the detection of your location in the settings of your mobile device anytime.
Furthermore, we offer the opportunity that you can choose under „Profile“ not to be shown on the Radar of other Users.

Third Party Contents
Within the mobile app UrbanX third party contents may possibly be integrated, e. g. such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google-Maps or graphics from other websites. This is always provided that the provider of these contents detects the IP address of the User. Because without the IP address they would not be able to send the contents to the browser / mobile device of the relevant User. The IP address is thus necessary for the illustration of such contents. There is also the possibility that third party contents are links to websites (e.g. the „Like Button“ of Facebook, fan page links on Facebook, Instagram, and many others), to help you quickly access further information or other relevant websites. By clicking on these links you are leaving the mobile app UrbanX. We have no control over these websites or their data protection practices that may possibly deviate from our practices. By linking to third party websites we do not express any approval or support of the contents provided there. Personal data that you make available to these third party providers, respectively those that are compiled by these, are not subject to our Data Protection Declaration. You should therefore read the Data Protection Declaration of all companies before disclosing personal information.
