It's your data and always will be.
Geneva does not own your data. Members of your Geneva groups do not own your data. We will never sell your data to third parties and we will never show you advertising. Our app does not use 3rd party cookies, web beacons, pixels or fingerprinting.
Your groups are your own separate spaces and we do not monitor them.
We do not see messages or any other content inside your group. We only see messages that are flagged to us by users for violating our Town Rules or Terms of Service.
We collect your location to recommend groups for you to join.
We require that you share your physical location with us when you create an account so you can discover groups around you. After you set a location, other Geneva users will be able to view the city or metropolitan area you are in, but will never be able to see your precise location. We only collect precise location if you check into an IRL event organized through Geneva that has enabled geofenced check-in.
We have a 17+ age restriction and help you find people around your age.
We require that you share your birthday with us when you create an account. Because our app is designed to connect you with new people and events in your area, we restrict access to users 17 and older. After you set a birthday, other Geneva users will be able to see your age through your profile, but will never be able to see your exact birthday. You may opt out of displaying your age in your profile.
Sharing your contacts is optional.
We give you the option to sync the contact list on your phone with Geneva so that you can easily invite your contacts to a Geneva group and discover the groups your contacts are in. You can control whether other users can discover you and your groups in your account settings. We do not share your phone number with other users on Geneva.
Syncing contacts is entirely optional. If you opt to sync contacts, we keep a record of your contacts list so we can let you know when your contacts join Geneva. If you un-sync your contacts, we will delete their information from our servers.
