3. What kind of data do we process?

Information provided by you:

  • By sending us an email or by filling in a query form to receive further information: for example, you could send us a question and we would use your email address to answer it.
  • By sending a comment, an opinion of a photo or video: for example, you could send us a photo of a weather event you may have witness and we might publish it on the Services so that other users can enjoy it.
  • By reporting on the climate or other conditions: for example, you might tell us that in your area there is a cold or rainy climate.
  • By interacting with interactive advertising: we receive the information you provide when you send oral or written questions or comments through the interactive ads that are placed on the Services or on third-party platforms; and we may share this information with our Advertising Partners.
  • By customising the Services: for example, you might set a starting location, so that every time you start the Services you are automatically shown the weather at that location.

Information collected automatically:

  • Information about your device and its features.
  • Information about your device’s operating system.
  • Information about your browser.
  • Information about how to use the Services.
  • Your activities in the Services.
  • IP address.
  • Advertising identifiers.
  • Mobile or Internet providers.
  • Type of browser.
  • Browser identifier.
  • Reference URL.

This information helps us to understand, analyse and measure how users use the Services; to manage the Services operations; to offer ads and measure their effectiveness; to diagnose problems, to recognise returning visitors; and to provide access to the Services, and their use, by you.

Location information:

Both we and our services providers, and our Advertising Partners and Analytical Partners, may collect location information through the Services.

We collect location information in order to provide you with location-based services (such as bad weather alerts and other related information using our mobile applications), to offer you ads relevant to your geographical location and to carry out analyses to improve the Services. The ways in which we collect information about the location, along with the kind of location information collected, depend upon the devices used to access the Serviced and upon the settings on those devices.

If you are going to access the Services through the Site, it is possible that we will be able to detect your general location, which will allow us automatically to show you the weather in your geographical area. Depending upon the type of browser and its settings, it may inform you that the Site wants to know your specific location and to ask you permission to do so. If you do not allow this, or if the browser does not allow it, only general location information shall be collected, which may be stored locally on the device. Even if we cannot collect direct location information on your device, you may manually enter a location (such as a town/city, a postcode and a country). On the mobile website, if you choose not to share your current location, you may continue to receive content relevant to the town/city you have entered in the search bar (that is, the name of the contextual town/city).

If you access the Services from your mobile device, we may, depending upon your application and your operating system, directly collect precise geographical information, through GPS, mobile telephony network information and other location-based features. Depending upon the mobile device’s operating system, we normally receive the latitude and longitude of the mobile device, as well as the date, time and data from a sensor, such as an altimeter. The precision of the latitude and longitude may vary by a lot and be determined by several factor, including those controlled by the device, the operating system or the mobile services provider.

If you allow any of Meteored’s mobile applications directly to collect location information while mobile applications run in the background, you will enable continuous location collection. Thus, we will be able to send you bad weather alerts for the area where you are. We also use this location information to carry out analyses and to improve the Services.

You can deactivate the direct collection of the location (or, in some operating systems, the continuous direct collection of the location) by configuring the device or deleting the mobile application from the device. If you deactivate the location-based services, it is possible you will continue to receive alerts for the locations you have selected in the Services.

Alerts and notifications:

Some Services offer you the ability to receive push notifications for weather-related updates. To provide these Services, it is possible we will have to collect your email address, information about the device and/or information about the mobile telephone company, as well as the postcode or the geographical area to which the alert, the update or the notification belong. If you do not want to continue to receive this type of notifications, you can deactivate them in the settings of the mobile device or of the specific Service where you have registered, or you can delete the application.

Advertising Partners and other third parties involved:

You may obtain information about you or your use of the Services through our suppliers and other third parties, such as our analysis providers or other advertisers, if these third parties have a legal basis for sharing such information. We can combine the information you provide to us and the information collected automatically with information from public or third-party sources. If you access the Services through social media and other third-party platforms, it authorises us to collect, store and use such information and content according to this Privacy Policy. If we combine or associate information from other sources with the personal data we collect through the Services, the combined information will be processed in the same way as the personal data, per this Privacy Policy.

    Once the user is a follower or has joined the data controller’s social network, they may publish in it comments, links, images, photographs or any other type of multimedia content it supports. The user must, in all cases, be the owner of the published content, enjoy the copyright or intellectual property rights or have the consent of the affected third parties.

    In these cases, the data controller reserves the right to remove the content immediately and without prior notice, and may ask to have the user permanently blocked.

    The data controller shall accept no liability for the content a user has freely published.

    The user must be aware that their publications shall be known to other users, hence they are the main party responsible for their privacy.

    The images that may be published on the social network shall not be stored in any file by the data controller, but they will remain on the social network.

    When the data cease to be necessary for the purposes for which they were collected, they shall be erased, ensuring their anonymisation and/or confidentiality.

    In the case of data provided apropos of a search for employment, if they were not of interest for the company, they shall be erased immediately, ensuring their confidentiality.

    At all events, the data that are preserved in anonymised form without its being possible to identify the data subject, they may be retained indefinitely.

      The company’s default policy consists of not revealing or communicating the data subjects’ data to any third party, except for: a) ancillary services, authorised data processors or other implicit third parties necessary for the proper provision of the goods and services; b) public authorities competent to exercise their functions; other legitimate data subjects and third parties provided for in law.

      More specifically, we set out how we share the data subjects’ information with the necessary third-party partners and services:

      The information collected in the Services can be prepared and kept in a format that does identify them, to you or to other users, and such information may be used or shared. For example, we can analyse personal data to generate aggregate or statistical data, none of which is personal information. Although they are not individual-level data, no guarantee is given that the aggregate data will be anonymous. The information collected in the Services can also be shared as follows:

      Third-Party Service Providers. When your personal data are collected through the Services, they can be collected with selected third parties who collaborate in our commercial operations, in providing the Services or in our advertising or marketing campaigns. They also help us when providing the features and functionalities you have requested (“Third-party Service Providers”). These Third-party Suppliers include, but are not limited to, companies that support our advertising programmes, manage mailings on our behalf, provide data storage, offer customer service, help to assess the audience and to develop products, and they give or deliver to you materials by email, though other electronic communication platforms, or by postal mail. We may also provide personal data to third-party cartography service providers, in order to provide you with cartographic material for the Services. The Third-party Service Providers are authorised to use the personal data we supply to them with the sole purpose of providing you with the service in our name. All these Third-party Service Providers are contractually obliged to respect the confidentiality of the personal data.

      Companies that offer promotions, products or Services. We may share location data, advertising identifiers, IP addresses and aggregate usage statistics for the Services with advertisers.

      Other websites, other services, complements and links. Like many websites on the Internet and other Internet-based services, the Services may link to other web pages located on websites or services maintained by other organisations. In some cases, you can navigate to pages on other websites that are framed with elements of the Services, such as the header or footer. In that case, the URL will identify the site you are visiting. In other cases, such as ads, you will connect to another site or service when you click or activate these opportunities, including the opportunities to click to call, click to send a text message and click to send an email. These other sites and services are not subject to our Privacy Policy, and we are not responsible for their information collection practices. The privacy policies of other organisations may differ from ours, for example, with respect to the level of security, the use of cookies, and the collection, use and dissemination of personal data.

      Some of the Services allow the users to interact with other websites or services. For example, the complements may connect identifiable third-party services by their respective logos (such as social media platforms) to the Services. You will remain connected to those other sites and services until the session ends. When you use these interfaces, you will allow the Services to access part of your information on those other sites and services. Your use of those other sites and services is subject to the privacy policies of those sites and services, and not to this Privacy Policy.

      Some of the Service use operating systems, platforms, communication services and third-party devices and software elements (such as operating systems of mobile devices, wireless services, mobile telephones and tablet devices), and some Services are provided by third-party distributors, device manufacturers, device operators, platform and communication services operators. We have no control over these third-party organisations, products and services, which could collect, use, process, transfer and disclose your information. Given that we do control those third parties’ data management practices, we recommend you review their privacy policies, conditions of use and licence agreements (if any).

      Advertising Partners. We may share the information we collect with the Advertising Partners so that they can supply relevant ads or content on their own websites or applications or on other third-party websites or applications and analyse and inform of the content or the ads the users see or with which they interact. The Advertising Partners may also collect information, or we may also provide information to the Advertising Partners. The information may include data about how the users interact with the Services, the information the users provide through an interactive ad, the content and ads the users have seen, the users’ activities on other websites and online services, and the physical places the users have visited.

      Aggregate information. As part of the Services, we will prepare and retain the information collected from the Services that is aggregated or otherwise modified so that it does not identify you directly and cannot reasonably be related to you. We use and share such information for our commercial purposes:

      Other limitation on privacy:

      Subject to applicable local legislation, we, our subsidiaries or our Third-party Service Providers may disclose your personal data without your permission (i) according to court or government orders, mandates or subpoenas, or to guarantee compliance with the law; (ii) whenever we believe they endanger the rights, property or safety of a person; (iii) if we describe that your actions infringe our Conditions of Use or any other of our legal rights; or (iv) in any other circumstance in which it were required or permitted by current laws (for example, in the event of a legitimate request for access from the courts, governments or the law enforcement agencies of any countries).

      7. Data storage and recovery in the users’ terminals.

      We work with various advertisers, advertising networks, ad servers (“Advertising Partners”) that use various technologies to collect data about how you use the Services (for example, the content viewed and the ads on which you have clicked) in order to offer you relevant ads. The Advertising Partners use various technologies in the Services through the website and within our mobile applications in order to (among other things): track use of the Services, the sites or content with which the users interact, and with what sites and mobile applications they interact once they leave the Services; link user devices; and to offer more ads in the Services or on other websites or mobile applications you may visit.

      We also have certain third parties who use data collection technologies to track use of the Services, analyse it and notify data related to them. They are also responsible for analysing and optimising the performance of the Services (“Analytical Partners”).

      The information collected using the data collection technologies described in this section may be linked with other information about you, such as the location, and it may include personal data. We use the technologies described in this section, by themselves or in combination, to understand the users’ behaviour; to personalise and measure the effectiveness of the ads; to help and diagnose problems; to recognise return visitors; and to make it easier for you to access and use the Services.

      Uso de cookies, balizas de web e información guardada por otras tecnologías

      Third parties may use cookies and other technologies by using our Services to support or offer personalised advertising in online services and third-party websites. The data collection technologies both we and the third parties use include the following, merely by way of non-limiting example:

      • Cookies: text files containing small portions of information. They are downloaded from the IT system or the mobile device when a website is visited and they are stored on the browser. The cookies are again sent to the source website in each subsequent visit to that website or to another website that may recognise them. Some cookies in our Services collect IP and MAC addresses, which could be considered personal data in some jurisdictions. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

      More information about cookies

      • Web beacons: certain Services pages contain web beacons. Web beacons allow third parties to obtain information, such as the IP address of the computer system that has accessed the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time at which the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to see the page and the information in the cookies sent by the third party.
      • Web storage: we use local storage, such as HTML5 localStorage and indexedDB, to improve the user experience. This is achieved by, for example, storing your user preferences and your settings (for example, volume/deactivate audio) in relation to the animated content of the Services. Local storage is similar to browser cookies, but it can store more complex data than simple text. In itself, local storage cannot carry out any action on the data stored on the device, nor with them.

      Use of advertising identifiers

      We and our Advertising Partners may collect information about a user’s movements within a under the use of mobile applications using advertising identifiers, to support, or supply, bespoke advertising. An advertising identifier is a randomly-generated alphanumeric code associated with a user’s device to help to publicise the services. These identifiers, which the user can reconfigure, have various names depending upon the operating system: GAID (Google ad ID) on Android devices and IDFA (identifiers for advertisers) on iOS. Advertising identifiers provide advertisers with a way to identify a user’s device within using a permanent device identifier, such as the serial number.

      Your options regarding cookies, advertising identifiers and other technologies used by advertisers, advertising networks and ad servers.

      This Privacy Policy does not cover our Advertising Partners’ practices and we do not control our Advertising Partners’ technologies. We provide links to more information about our approved partners and any opt-out page:
