Summary of the agreement between you and Weople
- Weople is a service offered by Hoda. It provides you with a
complete free service: an APP platform to achieve the following results:
- Weople helps you to act the most important rights of the GDPR
(European law 679/2016) and works to guard and protect your data,
always anonymously and with the maximum guarantee for your privacy;
- Weople commits to make you recover the greatest possible value
from your data through investment and enrichment methods that
respect your privacy, without ever transferring your personal
data to third parties. Also, Weople gives the User 90% of the
value generated by the investment, net of coverage of the
structural and operative costs. Everything will be constantly
communicated in a transparency page in the APP and officially
certified by a third part company;
you deposit and invest in Weople, creating your profile, your
registration form data and all those further data which you want
to send to your data account, activating, with your free choice
and without any obligation imposed by the app, the Safe-Boxes,
which you will find available and explained in your personal
vault. As you will see, this is consumption data from your
loyalty cards, data on the use of digital channels such as Social,
Google, Amazon, etc. and your interests. Weople does not collect
in any way other data about you than those indicated here and
that you decide freely to invest.
- To achieve the stated objectives, you allow us, through this agreement, to:
- if you want, to represent you in the requests to exercise your
Gdpr rights by conferring us a special mandate. You can always
ask for updates on the accomplished activities.
- to allow profiling operations on the data you have deposited
in your Weople account in order to send you communications and
customized commercial offers. Weople will act as an intermediary
with advertisers to convince them, based on aggregated data,
to invest and to start campaign in the Weople platform. Your
data will always be processed anonymously and in an aggregate
way and never provided individually or personally to advertisers.
This way of data investment will allow you to earn real money
(not virtual), paid by advertisers and deposited directly in
your piggy bank in the Weople App; at the same time it will also
allow you to receive personalized offers in the best way possible;
- process your data and create general statistical models,
therefore not referable to you personally. The models will
then be used to enrich the databases of third parties always
anonymously, protected, guaranteed by Weople and without
transferring your data at an individual/personal level to third
parties. This activity will grant you the possibility to join
he prize draw.
General terms and conditions for the use of Weople
This Agreement shall be interpreted in the light of the following principles:
your personal data has an economic value. We believe this value belongs
to you too, and not just to some distant and uncontrollable entity.
Weople adopts a system that allows you to get the maximum possible value
from your data, in a simple and intuitive way.
Data control and security
You are free to decide how much data you want to invest. For this reason,
Weople offers scalable settings that allow you to define your investment
profile. All data is processed in compliance with the most stringent
standards of technical and organizational security.
Hoda is inspired by certain principles such as equity, social
sustainability and sharing economy. We receive minimum shares of
the revenue, covering costs (personnel, structure, research and
development, etc..) and minimal operating profit. The rest is
distributed to the User according to the redistribution model described
in this page.
Weople is free for you, but not for Hoda. We bear all costs associated
with maintaining the service, from a technical and commercial point
of view. In order to show you the seriousness of our intentions,
we have decided to show you the main aspects related to the management
of the Company. In other words, the details regarding revenues, costs,
prizes and money distributed through Weople are public and always
available on the transparency page of the Application.
Such information is certified by specialized companies
and external with respect to Hoda.

The provisions of Art. 16 below shall apply as far as they are compatible.
Art. 16 – Request for further information while using Weople

measures by the third-party Data Controller to whom the request is made.

additional information relating to the User in order to enable the proper
operation and delivery of the Services.

authentication services, possibly integrated into the Application via API.

The mandate loses its effectiveness if the user suspends
his investment activities or deletes his account.

other events beyond the control of Hoda

loss of profit, business, goodwill, savings, contracts, use or loss

the amount received by the user for the period of 12 months prior to
the date referred to in the claim.
Hoda will do everything in order to maximize the Proceeds and,
consequently, the User’s ROI. However, the User acknowledges
and accepts that Hoda, in performing the Service, assumes an obligation
of means and not of result and, therefore, cannot in any way be held
responsible for the economic results related to the investment of their data.
Similarly, the User acknowledges that the result related to the exercise
of the rights referred to in the previous section depends on many factors,
including technical obstacles, problems related to the behavior of
the third party Data Controller, legislative and/or regulatory changes.

therefore cannot be charged to the Owner.
