Terms & Conditions

1. Object

1.1. WePlog is a computer program (hereinafter referred to as the "App") that allows, among other things, to clean up litter smartly and efficiently (hereinafter referred to as "Plogging"). The App can be downloaded on a phone or tablet through the usual channels (Apple's App Store and Google Play Store). The App is owned and operated by WePlog BV (hereinafter referred to as "WePlog"), a company under Belgian law with registered office at 9831 Sint-Martens-Latem, Pontstraat 70 and registered with the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises under the number 0739.590.059 (info@weplog.be; www.weplog.be).

The App has functionalities for, on the one hand, anyone who downloads and uses the App for Plogging (hereinafter the "Users") and, on the other hand, municipalities, cities, local authorities and organizations with which WePlog has concluded a license agreement (hereinafter the "Recipients of the Services").

The App offers Users the following features:

- check, via a clear colour code on a map of the environment in which the User is located, where litter was recently cleared. Users can use that data to judge where they can clean up litter in the most useful way;

- real-time information (in particular: where and when is/was Plogged) that is continuously updated by Users entering their Plog sessions into the App via a user-friendly start/stop function.

To the Recipients of the Services, WePlog offers a web application connected to the App with a number of additional functionalities.

1.2. These terms and conditions (hereinafter referred to as the "End User Terms and Conditions") regulate the use of the App by the Users as well as the use of personal data. By using the App, the User agrees to the End User Terms and Conditions. WePlog reserves the right to change these End User Terms and Conditions whenever it so wishes. The End User Terms and Conditions can be consulted at all times.

2. App availability and usage

In order to use the App, the User must have a connection to the World Wide Web and have the equipment necessary to establish (and maintain) such a connection.

WePlog strives for continuous availability of the App, but cannot guarantee this in any way.

In addition, the User is prohibited from disseminating information via the App that:

An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

WePlog will not process the Personal Data of the Users for any purpose other than as determined by the Recipients of the Services.

When processing the Personal Data of the User, the Recipient of the Services acts as controller, while WePlog is a processor. The privacy policy of the Recipient of the Services applies to the processing of the Personal Data of the Users by the Recipient of the Services. WePlog cannot guarantee that the Recipients of the Services will deal with the Personal Data of the Users in a reliable and secure manner.
