This information will be used to automatically generate a virtual business card (iCard) which will use the above data sets to pre-populate the data fields required to generate the card.

You also have the option of generating a virtual card by manually entering your data. You will be asked for the following information which is required by iBusinesscard to generate a virtual business card on the app: Name, Job Title, Email Address. You also have the option of also entering in additional information you may wish to include on your card.

The following information will also be collected by iBusinesscard to maintain and optimise the performance and functioning of the app:

Usage data, Contacts permission, Camera permission, Approximate location permission, Storage permission, Bluetooth sharing permission and LinkedIn permission

Once the iCard has been generated, you will be asked to share your location data with iBusinesscard, to identify events in your location which may be of interest to you. Your location will be tracked by the app and events within a maximum radius of up to 2km, and will be suggested to you via a notification from the app. You may choose not to share your location with iBusinesscard by accessing your app permissions and turning off this setting.

You may choose to share your iCard with third parties by sending your iBusinesscard to the recipient’s email. You may also choose to change your settings to auto sync whereby your card will be automatically shared with other users at the same event who have also used this setting and to also receive cards from those users.

Security of your personal data


Your data is hosted in Heroku Enterprise, a key component of Salesforce App Cloud, which is a cloud application platform used to provide the platform on which iBusinesscard is based. As the service provider, Heroku controls the primary management of the following areas and uses reasonable efforts to provide:

Infrastructure and application security: Heroku designs, deploys, maintains, and is responsible for securing many of the underlying compute services, including the virtual machines and application microservices that support a customer’s runtime. Heroku is responsible for the elements to which it has sole administrative access on behalf of the customer.

Security monitoring: Heroku runs a comprehensive set of security monitoring and event-logging tools and policies for the infrastructure and platform services to which it has sole administrative control.

Patch management: Heroku maintains the operating systems and applications it uses to deliver the cloud application platform, including the application of patches it deems critical to these systems and applications.

Network security: Heroku protects networks containing the information systems that run customer applications. Customers assume responsibility for the level of access, control, and configuration of their application environments which they directly manage.

Physical security: Heroku, both directly and through the third-party cloud provider that it leverages for IaaS, is responsible for protecting the physical data center, both in terms of physical as well as environmental controls.


As a tenant of Heroku, iBusinesscard retains responsibility for the end-to-end security of the application in the following areas:

Application design: iBusinesscard is responsible for the secure design of applications running on Heroku, including access to the data and system configurations that are controlled by the application. This includes, but is not limited to: proper identity access and management; end-to-end encryption beyond TLS termination; security handling and storage of certifications provided by Heroku; and the roles and permission granted to the application’s end users.

Security monitoring: iBusinesscard is responsible for the detection, classification, and remediation of all security events occurring within an application or database environment that is configured and controlled by the customer, including any monitoring tied to compliance or certification programs that the customer is participating in and that are not covered by the infrastructure and services managed by Heroku.


All personal data hosted by Heroku on behalf of iBusinesscard is hosted on secure servers in Dublin, Ireland.
