The purpose of this Notice
This notice describes how we collect and use personal data about individuals, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR). You should read the following carefully in order to understand our procedures regarding your personal data and how we treat it.
WHAT IS THE GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to strengthen data protection for people within the European Union, replacing the EU privacy directive known as Directive 95/46/EC. This regulation came into force on 25 May 2018. For more information about the GDPR, please visit: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-pro-tection_en
ComeTogether Private Company is registered in Greece and our registered office is located at Tompazi 32 Thessaloniki, 546 44, Greece. Our purpose is to connect individuals and businesses to easily organize, work at, sell products at, invest on, sponsor and attend events(matchmaking between all types of event stakeholders, or any subset of them). For the purpose of the Data Protection Legislation and this notice, we are the “Data Controller”, which means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use any personal data about you. We are required under the Data Protection Legislation to notify you of the information contained in this Privacy Notice.
HOW SCANNING WORKS & DATA WE USE
Realm Data Sync
This application is intended for event organizers or authorized people, in order for them to validate the tickets that bought for a specific event through ComeTogether. In order to be able to use scanner with low-bandwidth and keep the device in sync with all the tickets that bought or scanned from other devices, we use Realm Sync (https://www.mongodb.com/realm). The Realm is syncing the tickets data in your device if any change occurs, such as issuance of a new ticket or a ticket invalidation. In order to validate that the user has the right to scan and invalidate tickets of a specific event, we are using JWT Authentication. Each user after the login process gets a JWT token in order to be validated. This JWT Token is used to validate the user in the Realm app and is uploaded to https://eu-central-1.aws.realm.mongodb.com during the validation process. This JWT Token contains user’s email, first name(if exists), last name(if exists), preferred language(if exists) and identification number (see the Information and content you provide section for more details). User’s JWT Token is used only for authentication and User’s private data are not shared with any third party.
We are using user’s phone camera in order to scan a ticket and present its status (valid or invalid) to the user. If a ticket is valid, we invalidate it. During invalidation process, the Realm uploads the changes (by setting the ticket status as invalid) in order the other scanning devices to be synced. In order to invalidate the ticket we are using the ticket ID property.
