If you do not feel comfortable with us collecting such data, you should delete cookies issued through our website, and stop using our service (though we would feel sorry about that).

Cookies

Stuff.li is using just a few cookies. Some would even claim that we are not taking our service serious not using a bunch of 3rd party tools throwing even more cookies for improvement (sigh!).

Cookies are small text files saved on your computer, mobile or tablet.

You can always delete or block cookies - but our service might suck really bad (sorry!).

  • Invited Users - Guests who have received a link to an invitation through our service from an organizer.
  • Profile users - A user who have created a personal profile (and maybe even an invitation).

The data collected is mainly technical information - eg.  browser type, screen size, device etc.

Other data we are collecting, processing and using:

  • Your IP address - To determine which country you are in - and what events to present to you. The IP address will not be stored on the Stuff platform.

Invited Users

“Invited Users” are defined as users having received a link to an invitation through the Stuff platform. Because an organizer have invited the user to a private event.

For Invited Users we are collecting the same information as for Anonymous Website Users.

Additionally the following personal information will be collected:

  • Name - Your name provided by either your host or you personally.
  • RSVP - Your attendance status (yes, no, maybe) on a specific event.

Email, Name and RSVP are all interlinked.

The information will be saved on our platform 12 months after the event have happened. Thereafter delete unless you specifically have asked us not to.

Profile Users

“Profile Users” are users who have created a personal profile for 1) additional personalization and 2) to be able to create and manage invitations.

For Profile Users we are collecting the same data as for Anonymized Website Users and Invited Users.

In addition we will be collecting the following personal information:

  • Email Address - Your identification for login. And contact address for your guests. Also used for sending you information regarding an upcoming event.
  • Password - A secret and safe password, for your eyes only. Used for login.
  • Your Name - Your real name, so guests receiving invitations can recognize you.

  • RSVPs - We will be storing your RSVPs for each event that you have actively interacted with - yes, no, maybe - to show your host and other guests your RSVP status to the event.
  • Curious / Interested - What public events have you flagged as interesting.
  • Preferences - Based on your event RSVP and flagged interests a personal preference profile will be added to your profile to show you the most relevant events matching your preferences . The logic will be based on the individual events’ tags, location, meta data etc. This personal preference profile will always be available for you when logged into the service.
  • Comments - We will store comments, that you have made to individual events.
