  1. Location enabled attendance

Smylee users are required to enable the location tracking functionality on their mobile phone device in order to check into their Smylee Event. Smylee uses this location information to ‘Check-in’ each guest to the event and share that the guest has arrived (Checked-in) to all other guests that are attending the same event.

Once the location enabled attendance is activated by the User the functionality will:

  1. Provide the ability for a User to Check-in to the event at least 15 minutes prior to the start of an Event time scheduled and until the end of the Check-in time agreed for the Event.
  2. Allow the GPS location functionality to verify when the User is within 10 – 50 metres of the agreed event location and automatically update the Users Check-in status to arrived.
  3. Once a User’s status has been changed to arrived, the GPS location tracking will cease for that User and any tracking data collected while it was enabled will be deleted from the Smylee database
  4. Have the location pin displayed of each User at the event location to other guests in that event. The pin will disappear once the User Check-in time has expired or the User elects to turn off/stop their location tracking functionality.
  5. Prompt the app to update the User’s reliability rating once the Check-in is successfully recorded via the location functionality.
  6. Provide the User with an option to Donate Anyway if they have successfully Checked-in during the time agreed.

When the location enabled attendance is disabled by the User the functionality will:

  1. Not work as indicated.
  2. Remove the location pin displayed on the map to other event attendees

Mobile Phone Working Order

It is the responsibility of the Smylee Event Coordinator and/or Guest(s) attending the event that their own mobile phone device is in working order to allow a Check-in to be processed. If the GPS location feature has not be activated allowing their phone to be recognised by the Smylee App, attendance cannot be verified, the Pledged Amount and any transaction fee due will be payable by that User.

Manual Check-in

The User’s attendance at the Smylee Event can also be manually confirmed by clicking on the ‘Check-in’ button as indicated within the Smylee App if they have arrived at the agreed location. Once selected, the App will request the location to be enabled to verify the User is in the agreed location or, within 10 – 50 metres of the Event Coordinator, both allowing the User to be Checked-in. The Event Coordinator or Guest will then be advised that the User has Checked-in and the location functionality will automatically be switched off by the Smylee App and all location data collected during the time it was activated will be deleted from the Smylee server.

Failure to Check-in

Failure to Check-in to a Smylee Event will automatically result in the Pledge Amount plus any transaction fee being payable and deducted from the User who failed to Check-in’s credit card.

Everyone successfully completes Check-in

Once the Smylee Event Coordinator and/or the Smylee Guest(s) have Checked-in by allowing the location tracker to identify their location, the Event status will be deemed as complete and any Pledged amount will not be deducted from the Event attending users’ card unless requested via the Donate Anyway functionality.
