What kind of personal information is collected?
  1. Geographic position is collected non-continuously at the user's request and used to compile a list of butterfly sightings. Each entry in the butterfly sightings list contains the following personal information: geographic location, date, and time.
  2. The App uses the Google Maps API to display interactive maps at the user's request. Personal information is collected and used by Google according to Google's Privacy Policy.
For what purpose is personal information collected?
Personal information is collected by the App for the purposes of compiling a list of butterfly sightings and displaying interactive maps via the Google Maps service.
Is my personal information shared with third parties?
The geographic location data from the list can also be transmitted, at the user's request, to the Google Maps service in order to create interactive maps of observations.
Who controls my personal information?
The User controls personal information stored on the device. The App provides facilities for the user for full control over the information in the sightings list, with capabilities to view, edit, add, and delete individual entries, as well as to delete all recorded entries.
Personal information collected by Google or transmitted to Google during the display of interactive maps is controlled by Google and managed according to Google's Privacy Policy.
No personal information is transmitted to, or controlled by, the developers of the App.
How is my personal information secured?
The information in the sightings list is stored in private storage on the device and is accessible only by the App.
The "Export Sightings" function of the App can, at the user's request, export this information to a non-secured XML file on the device. This is done to enable the use of the collected data outside the App.
How long is my personal information retained?
All personal information collected by the App is deleted when the App is uninstalled from the device. Exported data are not automatically deleted; these are not controlled by the App after export and have to be deleted separately.
