Enhanced signup flow, privacy tools, and new terms
Hey conservationists! We've been as busy as possible tying to update the platform for GDPR. As a result, we've also improved the account signup process and made some architectural changes which should allow us to bring you even more cool features pretty soon.
I'm sure you've heard enough about GDPR already so I won't bore you with any flowery language: we do take your privacy seriously, and we'll do everything possible to protect it.
T&Cs are simply the rules of using Conservation Guide and defines how the relationship between us, conservationists and organisations works.
It essentially sets realistic expectations of what we can and can't do for you.
We've spent some time putting them into relatively easy to understand language, so hopefully their meaning should be clear and they should not take too long to read through.
They also cover the new mechanisms we're using to allow you to buy and sell experiences on the platform.
A large part of GDPR is making sure companies who have your data are transparent as possible about how they use it - we hope we've done that with these new policies.
For full transparency, you can even find a diagram of how and when we ask for your personal data, and what happens to it.
In addition, there are details of how you can contact our Data Protection Officer (which is me)!
On a personal note, I believe GDPR is a great thing for humanity, and we will do everything we can to support it.
If you have any questions about any of these updates, just get in touch with our support team via email, live chat, or the contact page.
