In short: we collect device sensor data for researching context recognition. Some of this is collected automatically, and some is collected with your explicit consent.
Some data is automatically collected for the following purposes:
Other information may be provided by you explicitly via the app or via a questionnaire if participating in a research programme. This information is non-sensitive, but may contain your location, your name, email address, and a device identifier which could be used to identify you.
Below are some examples of what we may collect automatically or otherwise:
We do not automatically collect GPS location or other sensor data unless you explicitly upload either a bug report or a training log via the app.
In short: information is sent via a secure connection to us for analysis.
We use information collected via the App for a variety of business purposes described below.
We process your information for these purposes in reliance on our legitimate business interests (“Legitimate Interests”), in order to enter into or fulfil a contract with you (“Contractual”), with your consent (“Consent”), and/or for compliance with our legal obligations (“Legal Reasons”).
We indicate the specific processing grounds we rely on next to each purpose listed below.
We use the information we collect or receive:
In short: information within the App is discarded after 3 months, and information sent to us from the App is kept until consent to use it for research is revoked.
Information that is processed within the App is either discarded after a few seconds, or stored inside the App for up to 3 months. Due to technological limitations, old information cannot be deleted until the App is opened, uninstalled, or its data is cleared.
Information sent to us for the purposes of research and development, including research questionnaires, is kept until consent is revoked.
We will only keep information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process personal information, we will either delete or fully anonymise it by removing all identifiers and location data.
In short: we use technological and organisational measures to prevent unauthorized access to your information.
Information is either short-lived, or stored using appropriate technological measures to ensure that only our App may access the information.
All sensor data sent to us is protected by appropriate technical and organisational measures to limit access to only those who are authorised.

We will consider and act upon any request in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
If we are relying on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal.
Upon a request to erase any information, we will deactivate or delete any related information from our active databases. However, some information may be retained in our files to prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our terms and conditions and/or comply with legal requirements.
