Privacy Policy

Effective May 9, 2024

This Privacy Policy applies to the website and all its subdomains (the “Sites”), together with the Stagetimer web applications and services (the “Services”), owned and operated by Lukas Hermann (Sole Proprietor Business, collectively, “Lukas Hermann”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, share, and secure the personal information you provide to us. It also describes your choices regarding use, access, correction, and deletion of your personal information.

1. Definitions

Personal information is any information about you which can be used to identify you. This includes information about you as a person (such as name, address, and date of birth), your devices, payment details, and even information about how you use a website or online service.

The marketing site refers to all public-facing informational pages on our website. This includes content such as homepage, about us, contact information, product descriptions, blog posts, and support resources. Essentially, it’s any part of the site accessed from the main domain that provides information about our products and services but does not require user login or interaction with the core functionalities of the web application.

The web application consists of all functional pages that require user authentication and are part of the Stagetimer service delivery. This includes, but is not limited to, user dashboards, team management interfaces, personal profile settings, and room controls for live events. The web application is primarily accessed through URLs starting with /auth/, /team/, /user/, /plan/, /r/, and /q/. These pages provide the interactive components of Stagetimer where users can manage their accounts, collaborate with team members, and control event timing settings.
