Collection and use of Information

We collect and use information from users in order to review the use of our services, so that we can continue to optimize our products.

Registration information:
In order to register for a Tickaroo account the prospective user is required to submit certain personal information to Tickaroo, for example a username, password and an email address. Some of this information, specifically the username, is open to the public. This means that it is visible on the profile page of the user as well as in the search function. In order to have access to certain services, such as the search function, login is not required.

Further information:
Should the user wish, additional information may be uploaded to the profile page, for example, a profile photo. The account can be further personalized by including links for the user’s website, a Facebook or Twitter profile. The inclusion of the above-mentioned additional information, that is, information that is not required for registration of an account, is not mandatory and can be added at the discretion of the user.

Livecasts, lists and other public information:
The main goal of our services is to help users to globally share and disseminate information. The majority of information that the user provides us with is information that we share on behalf of the user. This includes not only the user’s livecasts and its metadata but also lists that the user has made, people who follow the user, livecasts that have been favorited by the user, comments and other information as well. With regard to the basic settings, we make almost all of the information that the user sends us public. The email address of the user is not visible in the basic settings. The public information of the user is shared immediately. For example, the public livecasts from users are searchable via many search engines. Therefore, the user should be careful with all of the information that is shared and made public with Tickaroo, and not solely concerned with information that is entered into livecasts.

Information that the user shares via Tickaroo can be accessed and read globally.

Location information:
The user can choose if they want their location to be shared in their livecast or displayed in their profile. If the user sends their location while writing a livecast, we can use their exact coordinates to better optimize our services.

Server log files:
Our servers automatically save information (server log files) that originate from the use of our services. Examples of server log files is data such as IP addresses or the type of browser being used. Other actions, such as interactions with our website and applications can also be included in server log files. If we have not already deleted the server log files, we will delete them or remove all general account IDs such as usernames, complete IP addresses or email addresses after three months.

Tickaroo can follow how the user uses links in the livecasts within our services as well as the forwarding of livecasts by users and third parties. We do so as to improve our services and for the benefit of collecting statistics, for example how often a link has been clicked. This serves as information for the reporter.
