The App offers a social network for campers. The user has the option of creating a personal profile. The user basically decides for himself how much he wants to reveal about himself publicly in his profile. For the area search the user has to indicate at least his age, his gender and/or his co-travelers (e.g. couples or families) and the used travel possibility. The user can set that others cannot see the information on age and gender and/or the co-travelers. By the area search he can find other campers with similar interests. The area search can be refined by setting filters. The App can determine your location via GPS/Wi-Fi for the area search if you have agreed to this release in the settings of your operating system and/or the App. You can deactivate and reactivate the sharing at any time afterwards in the related system of your end device. System permissions requested by the App, such as access permission for location tracking, are exclusively for the proper operation of the App and its functions. System permissions that are subsequently revoked or not granted may lead to incorrect behavior of the App or to individual functions not being available.

The user can get in touch with other campers via a chat function. The App informs you with push messages on your device about news if you have activated this function. The push messages can be deactivated and reactivated at any time in the settings of your operating system and/or in the app.

The user has no right to use individual or all functionalities of the App, in particular permanent availability.

This must be provided by the user and is not the subject of the App.
