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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain.
