FAQ

Why did we develop LuBu?

LuBu stands for LunchBuddies and the app makes organising lunch or coffee breaks faster, easier, more effective, more flexible and more diverse than ever. First and foremost it is a way to prevent eating alone unwanted and shows the user who is available for a potential lunch or coffee break, no matter is these are friends, colleagues or new contacts.

How much does LuBu cost? 

Using LuBu is free and it will stay this way. Also, neither we want to sell your data or gain any other payments from you. Thus, we want LuBu to be used by as many people as possible to enhance the LuBu experience and in order to create many memorable experiences. We generate our income by customising the app for businesses and events/fairs for their staff/visitors and by cooperating with restaurants, cafés and other institutions.

Who can use LuBu? 

Anyone who wants to, via her or his smartphone/tablet/etc. and with access to the Google Play Store/iOS App Store, and who knows the feeling of eating alone unwanted.

What is LuBu for? 

LuBu was made to bring people together at one table, not matter if it’s for coffee, lunch or just a chat. LuBu is a digital social platform that enables real social interaction, instead of replacing it digitally.

Can I meet friends with LuBu, or only people I don’t know yet? 

Both, depending on what you prefer or suits you better that day. This way you can use LuBu according to your individual preferences, either as a quick tool for organising breaks with your friends or colleagues or as an opportunity for networking or even just meeting new and interesting people.

What happens to my personal data? 

Nothing. Your data belongs to you. Just non-personal data such as „average group size“, „popular timeframes“ and thus purely statistical figures are going to be gathered, in order to further enhance our product.

Can I delete my account? 

Yes, anytime, deleting all of your provided data entirely.

Can I meet friends with LuBu, or only people I don’t know yet?

Are my location and my whereabouts going to be tracked? 

No. Consciously we have decided to run the algorithm and the status matching without using GPS. Your status regarding the location(s) you would like to meet in is determined by your selection of your preferred locations instead of via your actual location you are at in that moment.
