However, apart from your nickname, the amount of CO2 saved to the environment, and the amount of CO2 offered for the use of a means that remain necessarily public, any other information can be made private by you at any time, it is your choice.

Wecity cares greatly about its Users and their privacy, but since it does not have control over the behavior of others, it cannot assume any responsibility in this regard. You are encouraged to consider carefully and consciously the data and information you decide to make public and to carefully consider every communication and contact you decide to undertake with other Users, especially if unknown.

Offering or participating in any “Strappo” or other activities offered by other Users directly or indirectly through the communication channels provided by Wecity is entirely your choice and any consequences cannot be attributed to Wecity, which can in no case be considered a party or intermediary of any agreement that may arise between Users.

Each User is solely responsible for complying with applicable laws, obligations, or regulations (for example, regarding the homologation, maintenance, and inspection of the means with which they intend to offer a Strappo or compliance with mandatory insurance regulations): Wecity assumes no responsibility for any loss, damage, cost, or expense that may arise to you as a result of or in connection with participation in any activity or event initiated, conducted, or organized by Wecity or a “Strappo” offered by any User or third party, nor in relation to any agreement between Users and/or third parties including any activities or events connected in any way, directly or indirectly, with the use of Wecity’s Services.

Information on the Georeferencing of Users

Wecity allows you to share a “Strappo” by identifying georeferenced routes – with other Users: the use of multiple mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, or others) on which the Application is installed, enables Wecity to collect data and information about your and your travel companions’ location and the route that you, alone or together with other Users, will travel using smart modes (e.g., carpooling) or otherwise environmentally friendly means (public transport, bicycle, etc.). Data related to the movements made and their modality remain confidential to other Users who are not traveling with you, but can be used by Wecity, also in aggregated and anonymized form for research and statistical purposes, as well as for the other purposes stated in this Privacy Policy.

The main purpose of Wecity is to use this information to collect important data regarding smart mobility and the amount of CO2 that can be saved to the environment with it. The anonymous aggregation and study of these data will make it possible to conduct scientific research that would otherwise be difficult to carry out: for this reason, Wecity is grateful to you and will give you the opportunity, in exchange for the mobility data collected with the use of the Services and the cession of the CO2 that is certified to have been saved to the environment with the use of Wecity, to participate in special promotions made available by sponsors and partner companies, to try for free, and for periods of time determined from time to time, smart and environmentally friendly means.

By adhering to the Services, you therefore authorize Wecity to use without limits and indefinitely the information collected related to your and your travel companions’ location and the related routes, without making them public but on the contrary using them mainly to create anonymous and aggregated databases and use them in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

You can anonymize your profile at any time through the settings available on the website or in the application. In this case, most of the details you provided will not be displayed. If you have chosen to integrate the Services with social networks, the possibility of being anonymous might be reset at each reactivation of the application.

Attention: when sharing information about the offered Strappo, obviously Wecity is not able to make it anonymous; however, during its execution, your position, that of other Users traveling with you, and information about the route while it is being carried out will be monitored by Wecity, but made available exclusively to you and your travel companions.

Username and Password

To access, you will always need to use the username and password with which you registered. With the advancement of technology, additional or different means of identification and authentication for accessing the Services or for accessing certain functions or designated sections of the Services may also be established and required.

Maintaining the confidentiality of your authentication data is your responsibility. You are fully responsible for any use or misuse of your account and personal data that may result from disclosing your authentication data to someone else. Ensure that you adopt virtuous behaviors in this regard, for example, never choosing simple passwords made up of only numbers or words, and remember to change your password frequently and at least once every six months.

Use of Aggregated Information

Wecity may use anonymous, statistical or aggregated information to properly operate the Services, to improve their quality or your experience, to create new services and features, including personalized services, to modify or cancel existing content or services also for commercial and statistical purposes. Wecity may also use them by sending, disseminating, transmitting or otherwise communicating or making such information available to the Users of the services, the providers of said services, partners, and other entities.

Information Security

Wecity considers the security of information an absolute priority. Wecity requires that its developers and the hosting providers it uses implement systems, applications, and procedures to protect your personal data, to minimize the risks of theft, damage, loss of information, unauthorized access or use of information, in compliance with what Italian legislation imposes: in fact, the servers on which said information resides are located in an Italian server farm and the company that manages it has been designated as Responsible for the processing of personal data.

While doing everything to ensure compliance with the above, of course, Wecity cannot guarantee, and it is not reasonably expected, that the databases are immune from any malfunction, illicit interception, access or other types of abuse or misuse and therefore cannot assume any responsibility: in case of any malfunction or unauthorized access it will do everything to restore the situation and ensure that any illegal behaviors are prosecuted by the competent Authorities.
