Welcome to Prompty! We are committed to providing a platform that enables users to create effortless, meaningful connections. These Terms govern your use of the Prompty web-app and other products, features, technologies, and software we offer, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply.

This Agreement (the 'Agreement') is a legally binding contract entered into by and between Prompty ('Company') and the user ('User') accessing or using the Company's services ('Services'). By accessing or using our Services, you acknowledge and agree that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this legally binding Agreement. If you do not agree with any part of this Agreement, you should not access or use our Services.

1. The Services We Provide

At Prompty, we aim to create an inclusive and engaging environment for you to develop and foster connections with others, and to collaborate with business, events, and communities. To support this, we offer the following services:

  1. a)

    Building connections using real-world interactions

    Prompty enables you to connect with individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations using Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled products such as cards or stickers, and Quick Response (QR) codes. When you connect with others, their profiles will be saved to your list of “My Connections” once the other user has accepted your request.

  2. b)

    Privacy control and data sharing permissions

    Prompty ensures that you can easily control the information that you choose to share individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations that you connect with. New connections are directed to “Pending Connections”, which you then assign a desired level of visibility. Using the “My Connections” menu, data visibility settings of those you have met are able to be edited at any time and connections can be removed from your list of connections entirely.

  3. c)

    Data minimization and personalized profiles

    In adherence with the international standard of General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), Prompty requires a minimal amount of data for creating an account and connecting with others. Your name, preferred pr-noun, if you would like your preferred pronoun to be visible to others, and your preferred e-mail for registration and authentication purposes are all that is required to create an account.

    Your personalized profile, which can include information such as social media links, contact information, social media links, and websites can be added, changed, or removed at the any time.

  4. d)

    Importing profiles to external contact management services

    Profiles on Prompty can be saved as contacts on smartphones, based on the visibility setting that has been chosen to be shared, using the “Download Contact” icon located on a user’s profile directly below the profile picture. The downloaded profiles can also be added as contacts to contact management software, such as Microsoft Outlook. This functionality ensures that the profiles of every individual you meet is managed using your preferred method.

  5. e)

    Notes and contact management

    Users can interact with the connections that they have made by editing the “First Connected” location (event-based locations met are unable to be changed), updating visibility settings, and create personalized notes.

    Personalized notes and visibility permissions can be accessed by clicking on the emoji on the lower right of the profile picture when viewing a connection’s profile. Personalized notes and visibility settings are kept confidential and are never shared. “First Connected” location can be updated for any non-event-based locations by switching the “My Connections” page to table view, selecting the edit icon in the upper right, editing the “Location Met” field, and clicking the accept icon in the upper right.

2. How our Services are funded

The platform is funded through a combination of a freemium services and direct sales:

  1. a)
    Freemium: Users can utilize the core features of Prompty completely free of charge. There are currently no “non-core” features available on Prompty. Once “non-core” features are implemented, there will be various premium and professional subscription options that users may choose to purchase. Additional features that are planned include the ability to view analytics, utilize cosmetic improvements, and to gain early access test and experience new features.
  2. b)
    Direct Sales: Prompty sells physical products, such as cards and stickers, and event and community management services. The revenue generated from the sale of these products and services, combined with the freemium subscription model, allow Prompty to offer access to users to utilize its core service offerings free of charge.
