Terms and Conditions of Us
Hello. You should read these terms and conditions in full because they apply every time you visit SportSociety and use any of its features. However, just in case you ever need a reminder of the main points, here’s a quick summary:

Please refer to our Community Guidelines and Safety Tips for additional Dos and Don’ts, and information on staying safe.

The Application’s main value and purpose is to allow Members to find Societies that can be interesting to them depending on the amount of player at each of them. We provide real time real data of players in your city so users can make their decisions.
We believe this to be extremely beneficial for our users, and its a our core purpose to provide this information.

Your Geographical position is collected with your express consent only. In fact, you will be asked to authorize the collection and processing of your location data to allow SportSociety to identify your crossing points with Societies.
Unless you have chosen stricter settings on your device, SportSociety will collect your Geographical position regularly.
When the Geographical positions of Members and Societies cross within a certain radius SportSociety will show you as an active user of the Society.
The Society will be displayed the number of Members of the app who are within the range of the Society.
Nevertheless, members with whom you cross paths or any other user can never see your exact location.
The information shown in the societies will be shown as a number and never as individual person location.

These Societies points can be displayed as icons and points on the Map (Mapping).
You may, at any time, withdraw your consent by disabling geolocation on your smartphone.

You can also ask that your profile are no longer displayed on the Map (Mapping). In this case, you will not appear in the Societies. And we will not be able to provide this information to other users who might be willing to know how many players are at each location.

We want everyone to enjoy their journey on SportSociety, and to use our platform safely and responsibly.
