Data collection and processing
ColorSmart collects data from your phone to provide you with an easy way to track how and where you move in your everyday life. When you install, run or use our services we collect:
- Location. Our system starts to collect location data from sources such as GPS, Wi-Fi and cell towers once you install the App and consent to the App’s tracking your location. We also collect Accelerometer samples, Wi-Fi network IDs, activity data, and places you identify with the Services. You may choose to stop our collection of location data through the Settings that we provide in the App, or by removing the App from your phone.
- Information you provide. If you choose to create an account, you provide us your email and a password. You may also provide other information such as your gender, height, weight, and birth year in order to use all of the App’s features.
- Information from your device. This includes information about your operating system, device identifier, carrier, language, battery performance, wi-fi or other network connections, or other data that you permit the App to access on your device including through permissions on your device (e.g. Google Play on Android).
- Communications with us. If you communicate with us, we collect the information and content you provide to us, including personally identifying information such as your name, email or other contact information. You can provide anonymous feedback by using an email account that does not reveal your identity.
How we use information
We process and use the information we collect about you in a variety of ways. The primary purpose is to provide you with an easy way to track how and where you move in your everyday life. We upload your information from your device over a secured connection to our servers in order to analyze the data and identify your activities, routes and places. Results are sent back to your phone over a secured connection so that you can view and interact with them, and they are stored on our servers. If you label a place, such as your home or work, or change an activity type, we also collect and store that information.
Other ways we use your data include to develop aggregated analyses and reports that help us improve our algorithms, measure and understand how our Services are used, and to develop new products, services and features such as by recognizing popular activities, routes, areas and places. We also use your information to communicate with you, such as by sending you notifications and service-related messages, or by responding to your requests and questions.
