FAQ

What makes Social special?

Social integrates seamlessly with your website and brings together the creation, sharing, and tracking of brand links into one holistic platform. Other providers only offer part of the whole at a time and are not installed directly on your server. You’ re giving away reach to third-party sites, whereas with Social, everything goes through your own website and domain. Social is the GDPR-compliant alternative to Linktree, Bitly and co.

What about data protection and third party processors?

We attach great importance to data protection. Social only sends personal data to third-party providers if it is necessary to provide certain functions. The following third-party services are used by Social:

Geoplugin:
The GEOPLUGIN® is used to process the IP address of users in order to enable geodata for click statistics of links. GEOPLUGIN® is a French-registered company, with servers in France and Holland and so bound by European law to respect the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Processed IP addresses are irrevocably deleted from the servers after one minute. Learn more about how GEOPLUGIN® processes data in their privacy policy.

Appsero:
Social uses Appsero SDK to collect some telemetry data upon user’s confirmation. This helps us to troubleshoot problems faster & make product improvements. Appsero SDK does not gather any data by default. The SDK only starts gathering basic telemetry data when a user allows it via the admin notice. We collect the data to ensure a great user experience for all our users. Integrating Appsero SDK DOES NOT IMMEDIATELY start gathering data, without confirmation from users in any case. Learn more about how Appsero collects and uses this data.
