Privacy

Weather Bar takes the privacy of her users seriously and will always strive to protect your privacy and preserve the trust you place in the software and website.

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information that the company and/or its third party service providers collect through the Weather Bar application (“Weather Bar” or “Application”). Data collected through your use of the Application is governed by this Privacy Policy. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using the Application.

By accessing or using Weather Bar, you consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. Irrespective of which country you live or use the Application in, you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate. We may modify or update this Privacy Policy at any time effective upon its posting on Weather Bar. Your continued use of this Application constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy and any modifications or updates thereto.


Information Collection and Use

We collect and use your information to provide, understand, and improve Weather Bar. We only collect and retain as much information as is absolutely necessary for the ongoing operation of our services. This information may include:

  • Your usage of Weather Bar features;
  • Your current location for use in Weather Bar forecasts and notifications;
  • The type of device you use, the IP address of your device, and your operating system;
  • Measurement units (e.g., Celsius versus Fahrenheit) and Weather Bar settings;
  • Your Weather Bar user ID.

We use the information we collect to provide weather data and notifications. We also use the information to create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising.

We retain your information only as long as necessary to provide our services. Specifically, we retain the following information:

  • Only your most recent locations and associated user ID which is used to provide weather data; and
  • All support-related communications, including but not limited to user-initiated emails and automated bug reports.

Location Information

You may opt to grant Weather Bar access to your current location (“Location Information”) to receive localized weather forecasts. This feature requires access to your device’s current location using your device/s IP Address. Where available, location-based services will use your IP Address, and other technologies to determine your device’s approximate location. Your Location Information will be used to request and display weather data for your current location.

Location Information is uploaded to our servers. Your Location Information is used only to provide localized weather alerts.

Your Location Information will be shared automatically with our weather data provider, Dark Sky, when you request weather data for your current location.

Your Location Information will never be shared with third parties (other than our data providers, but these providers will not be given your device or user specific data), such as third party service providers and/or advertisers, except to comply with the law or protect our rights.


Sharing Information

Weather Bar allows you to share weather forecasts, along with that forecast’s location, through social networks, including Facebook and Twitter. Weather Bar will never automatically share your Location Information on social networks, and/or third parties without your consent.

Weather Bar is in no way responsible for the protection of any Location Information that you choose to share with social networks. You and such social networks are solely responsible for the protection of such information. Please review any applicable policies and procedures of such social networks before sharing your information therein.


Third-Party Data Processors

Weather Bar uses third-party services to provide weather and radar data. These services may collect, process, and store information about you, including but not limited to your Location Information.

These services include:

  • Dark Sky
  • Yahoo! Weather

Please refer to the privacy policies of these third-party data processors for information regarding their data practices.


Aggregated Data Collection

Weather Bar may automatically collect anonymous information regarding your interaction with, and use of, Weather Bar. Anonymous information that we may collect includes, but is not limited to, device identifier and hardware information, IP address, system type, and other information about your interactions with the Application. We use this information to operate and improve our Application and customer support. We do not share this anonymous personal information with third parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Weather Bar’s functionality. We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many people use a particular feature in Weather Bar. Anonymous, aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.


Third Party Analytics

We may provide anonymous data to third party analytics companies to help us understand how the Service is being used to help us make improvements.


Website Visitors

As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The company may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.


Information Disclosure

We may preserve or disclose your information, including Location Information, if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or request from public and government authorities within or outside your country of residence, such as to comply with a subpoena or for law enforcement purposes; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the safety of others; to address fraud, security, technical issues, or to protect our operations; or if the company is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale or transfer of all or a portion of its assets.


Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

Weather Bar is designed for users over the age of 13; no part of the Application is structured to attract anyone under the age of 13 and we do not target our Application to children under 13. If you are under 13, please do not use or submit any data through the Application. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children to never use the Application or submit any data through the Application without their permission.

While we work hard to protect your data, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.


Privacy Policy Updates

At times it may be necessary for us to make changes to this Privacy Policy such as due to changes in the services we offer, third-party policies and procedures, and/or the applicable laws of the United States. We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, especially before you provide any Location Information to Weather Bar.
