Native app permissions

Permissions are pop ups in our native apps that we request based on both your and our needs for a fully functional app. Of course we request your guests to say yes to all the following permissions so our app can work and you can make the most of the app, but we also want to respect your guests usage of your app. So both you and your guests will get the choice to to accept or deny the following permissions:

  • Analytics: This helps us improve the app. Any data we receive is anonymized, based on the rules stated in GDPR.

  • Push notification: This is for pop ups. Any guest that uses the app will benefit from allowing push notifications as this will help them keep track of both their own schedule within the hotel and any interesting activities or announcements.

  • Location: Location based services will only work within the app itself. We use this information to update you on anything in your vicinity as well as help guide you to activities that are not in your immediate vicinity.

๐Ÿ’กTip: Make your guests aware of what the permissions are for so they can use your app to its fullest potential and not miss out of the benefits!

Here is what it looks like to go through the first steps of opening the app and accepting the permissions:
