Therefore, we wish to inform you about the kind of data we collect, process and use.

2. Which of your data do we collect, process or use?
a) Collection and use of location data
Our apps offer the possibility to retrieve weather data for your specific location. To this end, it is essential for the location service function on your mobile device to be enabled. As soon as the service functions have been enabled and before you start the app for the first time, you will be asked to permit access to the location data. After your OK, the app has permanent access to the information of the specific location. In the settings function of your mobile device, you can disable the access of the specific app to your location at any time. In the event the access to the respective data by the app is enabled, your mobile device will transmit to us the location in the radio cell you are in. In the event your mobile device has a GPS receiver, also this location data will be transmitted to us. The location information is rounded to 0.025° (radius of about one-two miles) so that your specific location is not disclosed to us.
b) Paid version
The purchase of the respective Pro version allows you to use our apps free of ads. In the event of the purchase of a Pro version, we will only store a device-specific ID and the date of purchase.
An in-app purchase allows you to use our apps free of ads. In the event of an in-app purchase, we will only store a device-specific ID, the date of purchase and the expiry date.
