Privacy statement

Hi there! Welcome to the privacy policy of BASH. The fact that you clicked on our privacy policy probably means we have something in common: you care about your privacy. We at BASH care about your privacy as well. In fact, it is one of the reasons why we started BASH. For we believe data is not a currency, it should not be sold to the highest bidder. If you use BASH, we will do our best to keep your data safe and solely for the purpose of creating the best BASH experience possible for you. We aim to be a company that you trust with your personal data because you know it is safe with us. That should not come easy of course, so by explaining how we use your personal data in our privacy policy, we hope to start earning some of your trust.


BASH is part of BASH B.V., located at Leidsegracht 38, 1016CM Amsterdam, and is responsible for the processing of personal data and this privacy policy. This privacy policy explains how our organisation uses the personal data we collect from you when you use BASH.

Who collects your personal data?

BASH collects your personal data. We do not directly share your personal data with third parties outside of data storage facilities, which is further explained under “How do we store the users’ data?“ below.

Why do we collect personal data?

To ensure you have the best experience using our app it is important for us to gather personal data. We only do this on the basis of your consent and when necessary. This is allowed under article 6 of the GDPR.

What data do we collect?

BASH collects the following data to optimally perform its services to the user:

  • To better the BASH experience and for the user to login: telephone number and/or email address;
  • IP address solely for security purposes;
  • Personal data that can be derived from the events that the user creates and/or visits;
  • Personal data that can be derived from users activity. For example, adding friends, following profiles and inviting others;
  • Personal data that the user actively provides, for example by providing a profile picture or your birthday.

How do we collect your data?

Personal data is collected directly from the user. We collect data and process data when the user:

  • Registers with BASH through an email address and/or a telephone number;
  • Personal data that the user provides directly, for example by completing a profile;
  • We collect necessary cookies only for the functioning of our product and analytical cookies to improve the user experience of BASH;
  • The data generated by actions such as adding friends, interacting with events, and general in-app behaviour is called usage data. BASH collects this data to improve our product and create a better experience for the user.

How will we use your data?

BASH collects the above-mentioned data so that we can:

  • Give the user the opportunity to create a profile and start the BASH experience;
  • Inform the user about changes to our services and products;
  • As mentioned, the data we collect is used to provide the best BASH experience possible for the user. This means that the data is used to make sure the BASH functionalities work, for example, the possibility to host and attend events, and to find events that you might be interested in;
  • Targeted advertisement, BASH will provide a service for event providers to advertise their events on the app against payment. To determine who sees which event the algorithm will use the data it has acquired.
  • Disclaimer: the algorithm uses the data in bulk, not on a personal basis. Also, event providers will receive general data on their events but they will not receive personal data on individual users. Such personal data will not be shared with third parties to secure your privacy as stated above.
  • On an individual basis, we contact users to collect qualitative feedback. This however will not be outsourced and all the personal data will therefore not be shared outside of BASH.

How do we store the users’ data?  

To provide the best user experience, BASH has to make use of data storage facilities. The data that is stored on these facilities is used so that the basic functionalities of BASH can work. We store your data in data centres in Europe: Google Cloud Europe, Amplitude’s EU Data Center, and Mixpanel Europe for as long as necessary. Because these data centres are located in Europe, they fall under European Union law. This means that your data is protected under Articles 7 and 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, Article 16 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU and of course by the GDPR.

What are your data protection rights?

  • The right to access: you have the right to request BASH for copies of your personal data;
  • The right to rectification: you have the right to request that BASH correct any information you believe is inaccurate. You also have the right to request BASH to complete information you believe is incomplete;
