TERMS & CONDITIONS
Last revised on 20th September 2019
The core functionality of the App is to provide Profile Validation for users. So that our users will know that other users on the App are real people and not fakes. Only validated identities are allowed to be on the IMPRESSO App. Just like opening up a bank account or requesting services from a company, the bank or the company you are dealing with will want to know who you are and if who you say you are is really you. Users that are not validated cannot access the main functionalities of the App.
IMPRESSO services also promotes the face to face meeting up of validated professionals for business or career advancement. IMPRESSO promotes only real people only unlike other Apps with millions of unvalidated users that could be potentially fake. IMPRESSO also promotes meet up venues for users. The validation information collected is not shared and is not accessible to users.
To be able to provide an easy to use, effective, useful and safe experience for all our users, we request the use and access of the user's device features listed below, to make it easier for the user to get validated and to have a better user experience on the App:
- camera on user mobile device
- user's mobile GPS location (Google Maps API)
IMPRESSO credits called XIMs can be earn by users while using the IMPRESSO App. Just like in a gaming app where users can gain credits, crowns or jewels. And like gaming apps XIMs can be used in the app to make in App purchases. IMPRESSO App will be available soon on both Apple App Store and the Google Play store.
