Our services

We offer a platform that can be accessed through this app by our users and that can be accessed by third parties, such as bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels, that have registered their venues or groups to our services through our website. This agreement governs your use of our platform through our app. It does not establish a legal relationship between you and any other third parties. After creating an account, you will gain access to our online platform and you will be allowed to post real-time photos and videos of the venue you are visiting and/or the event you are attending. We call this “Insights”. In order to be able to post Insights, you have to be within a range of 100 meters from the venue/event you are posting Insights of. In order for us to verify whether you are within this range, your mobile device’s GPS/location services have to be enabled. By accepting this agreement, you also agree to our Privacy Policy, which means you have given informed consent to the monitoring of your location, among other personal data. Users can like the content posted by other users. For every multiple of 10 likes a user receives on their posted Insights, they are rewarded with 1 unit of our in-app token, for their contribution to the platform. We call these credits “Nocs”. You can also can collect Nocs by referring new users to our platform, but only when the referred individual actually creates an account in our app and starts using our services and the new user mentions the username of the one who referred him. The Nocs you collect can be spent to purchase Deals as offered by the venues and groups that are also part of our Nocto community.
