    Your geographical location is only collected with yourconsent.In fact, you will be asked to authorize the collection and processing of your location data to allow DASTME to identify your location with other Users who agreed to be geolocated.

    DATSME can,if you expressly agree, access your position, approximately or more precisely depending on the technology you use. The location shall only be fetched from your smartphone once you use the MAP Mode. This location is not accurate or precise and is displaced to an untraceable amount. The purpose of these locations is for you to explore other people and offers nearby while exploring one of the features of the DATSME application.

    To ensure the privacy of the Users, Datsme has two major features:

    1. The Users are grouped into clusters (as far as possible) ensuring that the location of one specific User is not exposed.
    2. In case the User is at an isolated location and cannot be grouped into a cluster, an additional safety feature has been provided i.e. the limiting of the zoom level of the map. This is done so that any other User may not be able to decipher the exact location of the User easily.

    By using the Datsme app, you are giving us your consent to use your exact location. You are free towithdraw your consent at any timeand disable the geo-location option on your smartphone. If you choose to do so, your location shall no longer updated and you will not be able to see people who are currently in your vicinity.

    In this case, you will only appear in the Search mode and Main View (Also referred to as Datsme View) of other Users. Equally, you will no longer be able to see the profiles of Users on the Map mode and will only be able to use the DATSME view.
