This is a detail of the legal bond between You and StreetLib, in other words the conditions you are agreeing to when you sign up to the streetlib.com platform. You want to read this carefully. It’ll tell you the condition of use of StreetLib, your privacy rights and ours. So please, go fetch your reading glasses and a cup of tea, make yourself comfortable and start your read. I’ll endeavor to avoid boring parts or legal jargon, whenever possible.

What happens if you refuse to give your information

When you ask for services, some information are mandatory for us to be able to accomplish tasks listed above (1 to 5 in the reasons why we need your information). If you refuse, give partial or false information, we may not be able to give you access to our services or to deliver the service you requested.
About the number 6: receiving the newsletter is optional and so is providing information for it. Should you decide not to receive it, it won’t prevent you from using any other StreetLib service.

Cookies

Cookies aren’t just the chocolate chips ones I’m eating while writing this text. Cookies also are strings of text sent by a server to the user’s computer and transmitted back again when using the same site. These text files are generally used to improve user navigation, to adapt a website to its users and to monitor the traffic on websites for statistical purposes.  Once you have logged in your account on the StreetLib ​website​ the only cookies used are as follows:

  • The “technical” cookies, necessary to perform the services requested by the user.
  • Cookies that only analyse visitor traffic by monitoring the number of  accesses anonymously, for statistical purposes (for more information:​ Google Analytics​).
  • Any permanent cookies that you would be requested when you access the website (clicking on the  button: “Keep me logged in”): they’ll store your log­in credentials, allowing you to be  automatically recognized on your next visit for a period of 30 Days. Please note, however, that all browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari etc.)  allow you to change cookies settings, so visitors are free at any time to refuse their use or to  specify what to accept and what to refuse.

eMails

We send to all our registered users occasional emails about news or changes that may impact their experience and use of our services. Especially when it involves a change of your services contract (new partner e.g.) allowing you to approve or refuse this change.

You may also sign up to receive optional newsletter emails and you’ll always of course be able to opt-in or out.

Yes, there is a link between this picture of a monkey and the emails you may receive from us.

Our standard guarantee

We will refund your money if you aren’t satisfied. Provided, of course, that you are available to tell us where we failed you and let us try to fix it before we refund you. Not only to prevent abuse but most of all because we hate (really hate!) not finding solutions for our StreetLibers.

If you are in a tunnel, we want to show you where is the light. Or just get you home safe.
