Information we collect through your use of our services
When you use our Services, we collect information about you in the following general categories:

Important infromation about platform permissions
Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the Weather Puppy app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the Weather Puppy app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.
Use of information
We may use the information we collect about you to:
- Provide, maintain, and improve our Services, including, for example, to develop new features, provide customer support to Users, and send product updates and administrative messages;
- Perform internal operations, including, for example, to prevent fraud and abuse of our Services; to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyze usage and activity trends;
- Personalize and improve the Services, including to provide or recommend features, content, and advertisements.
We may transfer the information described in this Statement to, and process and store it in, the United States and other countries, some of which may have less protective data protection laws than the region in which you reside. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this Statement.
Sharing of information
We may share the information we collect about you as described in this Statement or as described at the time of collection or sharing, including as follows:

Analytics and advertising services provided by others
We will comply with individual’s requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the personal data it stores in accordance with applicable law.
We request permission for our app’s collection of precise location from your device per the permission system used by your mobile operating system. If you initially permit the collection of this information, you can later disable it by changing the location settings on your mobile device. However, this will limit your ability to use certain features of our Services.
You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us by following the instructions in those messages. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as those about Services you have requested, or our ongoing business relations.
Your California privacy rights
California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Weather Creative does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you provide us with consent to do so.
