Conditions for use of the VisitHerning Explore app
The following Conditions are valid for the use of the VisitHerning app “VisitHerning Explore”, owned by VisitHerning, tourist association for Herning, Ikast-Brande and the surrounding area, CVR no. 39374218. By using the VisitHerning Explore app, you are accepting the Conditions.
Please go through the Conditions in detail, before using VisitHerning Explore.
VisitHerning Explore is an app for Android and iOS smartphones, where you can read texts, watch films, listen to stories, do quizzes and use offers.
The app was developed by Makeable.
When you use the app, you will be asked to turn on GPS navigation. GPS navigation is used by the app to provide you with offers and suggestions for experiences close to your geographical location. If you choose to disconnect the GPS navigation, the app will work based on a location in the centre of Herning. You can always, at a later time, activate or deactivate the GPS navigation in the settings of the app or on your phone.
It is not necessary to create a user profile to use the app. Therefore, no data about your person, such as your name, phone number or the like, is registered or saved. However, you should be aware that if you activate the GPS navigation, you accept that we will use your location when the app is in use.
You are always welcome to contact us to find out which data we have stored about you, and, of course, you also have the right to have any possible data about you deleted. In general, we only use data about you, when you are using the app. But the app will save your activated offers, marked favourites, etc. As soon as you delete the app from your phone, any information about you that is stored and could be used to identify you will be deleted. In order to ensure statistical information for improving the functioning of the app and its content, anonymised statistical data about the use of the app will be stored.
It is only possible to use all offers in the app once. All offers must be used at the specific VisitHerning member organisation on the date they are collected and can only be used once on that particular date. An offer can be cashed in by swiping to the right on the button in the offer description.
An offer is used by showing the employee from the member organisation the collected offer with the date on it. It is not permitted to save the offer, nor is it permitted to use the offer more than once. Once collected, the offer cannot be returned, and will no longer be valid if not used within the terms of the offer.
All offers are available for a limited period of time. The period of time is clearly indicated on the offer page.
Once you have downloaded the app, you have the opportunity to answer quiz questions in the app that are related to the experience that you are visiting. There are no prizes or other gains connected with the quizzes in the app.
It is possible to share a link to download the app by clicking the share-button in the right top hand corner of the Home page.
