(1) The app "Pflotsh Storm" (hereinafter: App) is offered by Kachelmann GmbH, Dorfplatz 2, CH-6417 Sattel, Switzerland, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org (hereinafter: Kachelmannwetter) and Andreas Garzotto GmbH, Bättmur 13, CH-8404 Winterthur, Switzerland (hereinafter: AGG). Said companies are jointly responsible as the data controller within the meaning of the Swiss Data Protection Act.
Personal data are individual pieces of information on personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual, such as the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and date of birth.
(1) During use of the App, personal data will, as a matter of principle, not be collected and processed.
(2) The App requires access to the smartphone’s location. Prior to the first use of the App, the user is asked whether the App is permitted to access the smartphone’s location information. If this is rejected, the App cannot be used, or can only be used with limited functionality. If permission is granted, this can be revoked again at any time via system settings.
(3) During a location query, the App determines the current location via the smartphone positioning functions (e.g. GPS, GSM, WLAN/WiFi). The location data are used to show the user’s own position on the map. Location data will only be processed on the smartphone and will not be transmitted to Kachelmannwetter and AGG, nor to third parties. The location data will only be stored on the smartphone as long as the user’s own position is displayed there.
(4) If a location search is run, a search request is sent to Apple Inc. This leads to the transmission of the location’s coordinates from Apple Inc. to the smartphone. The data will not be transmitted to Kachelmannwetter or to AGG.
(5) At regular intervals, the App checks the smartphone as to whether a valid subscription exists for the App. In reply, the App is only provided by the smartphone with the answer “yes” or “no”. During such inquiries, further data will not be collected from the App. The data will not be transmitted to AGG or Kachelmannwetter.
(6) As an option, the App asks the user for his or her user name and password for Meteosafe. This is required to register the App with Meteosafe. The password is stored in an encrypted form in the key ring of the device, and neither the user name nor the password will leave the App, except for the purposes of logging into and out of Meteosafe, i.e. the data are not accessible for us nor for third parties.
(8) If a weather observation is reported, in addition to the observation, a location and a device identifier is sent to our server. The device identifier is a random string and cannot be used to identify you. Its sole purpose is to prevent abuse. If a certain device is sending too many or nonsensical reports, the identifier is used to refuse further observations from that device.
The user shall always have the right to obtain information on the stored data relating to him or her, their origin and recipient, and the purpose of the processing of data. In the event of questions regarding data protection issues, users are free to contact Kachelmannwetter or AGG at any time (contact data see above).
AGG and Kachelmannwetter use technical and organisational security measures in order to protect data, in particular against loss, manipulation and unauthorised access. These security precautions are continuously adapted to technical developments.
