Privacy Policy

Welcome to Spinym ("Spinym," , "we," "us" or "our", "me", "my" might also refer to "Franz Nkemaka"). Spinym lets you connect with your friends, people nearby in a way you've never dared before: anonymously. Just send an ask, anonymously or openly, wait for the reply and share.

  • Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and protect information in relation to our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with Spinym services (collectively, the "Service"), and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

  • By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to post content, including photos and other materials ("User Content"), to the Service and to share User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use (which can be found at


An Ask is the question, feedback, or opinion that a user gives to other users or receives from other users on Spinym.

A Story is a text, message, the question that a user can share with other users on their profile.

A Whisper is a text, message, the question that a user can anonymously share with others.

Spinym Content Toxicity is a measure to assess and tell how constructive and meaningful the user behavior is based on a complex internal dynamic algorithm that generates a score for each content called Confanity™. We by no means guarantees the accuracy of this measure.


We collect the following types of information.

Information you provide us directly:

  • Your username, password, and e-mail address when you register for a Spinym account.

  • Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., first and last name, picture). This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on Spinym.

  • User Content (e.g., photos, Asks, Stories, Whispers, and other materials) that you post to the Service.

  • Communications between you and Spinym. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt-out of Service-related e-mails.

Analytics information

  • We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

Cookies and similar technologies

  • When you visit the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like local storage, async storage to collect information about how you use Spinym and provide features to you.

  • We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

Internet Protocol

  • When you use our Service, even if you are just visiting our website and not registered, we receive information about you and your access. Our servers and some third-party technology providers log your internet protocol (IP) address with timestamps to maintain the security and quality of the service and may log the IP for other purposes such as analytics. To maintain the safety and security of our users, we record your IP address and port when you register and when you send an Ask or Whisper on any of our platforms. We may also record the IP address and port on other occasions for the same purpose.

Device Identifiers

  • When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Spinym.


  • We collect your Geographic coordinates either directly from your device (accurate) or with your IP Address (coarse). You have the option to disable this in your Device settings


In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use information that we receive to:

  • help you efficiently access your information after you sign in

  • remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service;

  • provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Service

  • monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns


Sensitive data like your Device ID, IP, location are encoded using unhashable hashing algorithms similar to MD5, SHA. You are the only person to know your password because it is unhashable, and it generated with random tokens which makes it impossible to be guessed.


We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside Spinym without your consent, except as noted in this Policy.

Parties with whom we may share your information

  • We may share User Content and your information (including but not limited to, information from cookies, log files, device identifiers, location data, and usage data) with third parties services.

This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of Germany where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.
