Because using this app is optional, Goin’ requires your consent to process your personal data. Goin’ needs to process certain personal data (name, e-mail address) to create a profile. Any other additional information you want to share is optional. Choosing not to do so will not prevent you from using the app. One-on-one conversations will not be monitored. Group conversations will be moderated by Goin’ employees to prevent inappropriate use of the app or if a student raises a concern. Your data and the content of your conversations will be stored as long as you are using the app. Once you decide to delete your profile or stop using the app, Goin’ will delete your data. Goin’ will of course let you know before anything is deleted. The UU has no access to student or account data in the Goin’ app. We do receive certain aggregated information about the use of the app, for example how many students from a certain country have created an account and information about popular discussion topics.

You are welcome to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting Goin'.
