Permissions and privacy
We care about your privacy and it is very important to us that you feel safe. We only ask you for the permissions needed to make the artist’s and listener's experience in the Limelight app as good as possible.
Limelight has access to your location while using the app so the artists can get information about where their listeners are. They will not be able to search for specific individuals, but only have a rough overview of data. They can use this information to see where it is relevant for them to play concerts.
