Part A – General Terms
The Data We Collect
The information you upload to the App, together with your “Weak Spots” data (if applicable), is received by Drinkaware and will be stored on your Device. If you delete the App or your Device is lost or destroyed, we cannot restore your data.
To use the App the only personal information you have to provide is your gender and year of birth. You do not have to provide us with your name or email address or other personal identifiers. If you choose to provide us with your email address, you consent to us being able to link the information you input into the App, together with your “Weak Spots” data (if applicable) to your email address.
If you do not provide us with your email address, Drinkaware will still receive the information you input into the App but we will identify your Device using a randomly generated ID (or similar) and we will not therefore identify you as an individual.
If you choose to provide your email address you agree to receive hints, tips, and support, updates, news, promotions, and information about our products or services from us by email.
You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time by going to the “Email Settings” screen in the App.
“Weak Spot” Function
Where you have chosen to use the ‘Weak Spot’ functionality, we may collect data relating to the location of your Device. The ‘Weak Spot’ functionality allows you to share with us specific locations where you drink. We will then send drinking related reminders to your Device if we identify that you are near such locations.
If you do not want to share with us the location of your Device, do not enter a ‘Weak Spot’.
If you delete all your ‘Weak Spots’, we will no longer receive location data from your Device. Alternatively, you may turn off the location settings on your Device at any time by accessing the “Privacy” or “Permissions” section of the “Settings” of your Apple or Android Device and by deactivating “Location Services” or “Location”.
Analytics and Research
We use technology on our App for “analytics” purposes. This allows us to, for example, understand more about your interaction with our App and to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our App and which parts of our App are most popular. This helps us gather feedback so that we can improve our App and better serve our users.
We also use the information collected by the App for research purposes. We may share this information with third party research partners but will only ever do so in a manner which does not identify you as an individual.
We do not use tracking technology for advertising purposes.
Your Consent to Analytics and Research
If you do not agree to the collection and processing of data for analytics and research purposes as described above you should not use the App (and you should uninstall it).
