Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy – Updated March 2019

 

Clearcast is a weather forecasting app supported by advertising. This service

(“app”) is provided at no cost and is intended for use as is.

 

This privacy policy is used to inform you regarding policies with the collection, use, and

disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use this Service.

 

  1. Overview:

The app uses advertising to make revenue. The app uses third party

libraries for advertising which may collect and share personal information with third

parties.

 

Google AdMob is a main provider of advertising for Clearcast and information about their advertising is located here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads

 

  1. Sharing Your Information:

The developer will share personal information, such as location data, with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

 

Your personal information may be disclosed:

* As required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process.

* To any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

 

  1. Location Data:

In order to provide our users with accurate weather data, Clearcast needs to know the precise location to generate a useful forecast. You can share your location data with us in two ways: either by enabling “Location Services” (a.k.a. GPS location) on your phone or by manually entering your location. These locations are stored within the app as a user’s preference so Clearcast doesn’t need to ask for your location with every app launch.

 

Clearcast may also provide your location data with advertising partners to display ads that are relevant to your location (a.k.a. geotargeting). See Section 5 for more information on this.

 

  1. Notifications:

We want you to receive the most up to date weather information, so we send push notifications about current and future weather conditions to your phone when you opt in. If you’d like to stop receiving notifications, go to the “Settings” section of the app and turn off the notifications. Deleting the app will also stop notifications.
