Desoline Privacy Policy

 

Desoline believe that you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it, and that you should control over both. We want to give you the option to make the best decisions,  for you, about the information you share with us, that is the purpose of this Privacy Policy.

Here are a few key points that we’d like you to take away:


  • We do not require that you register with us  or provide personal information such as your name, email address or  phone number to use our services, they are offered to you free of charge  and we will never collect this data unless you choose to provide them  either by contacting us or creating an account with us.


  • Desoline is a private company which offers users free apps. To pay for  the maintenance and enhancement of these free apps we need to be able  to monetize use of our apps, primarily we do this through advertising.  To do this and to make adverts more relevant for you we receive some  personal information such as your device ID (IDFA or AAID) and location.


  • As an alternative you can make In-App Purchases (IAPs) in our Free  apps, or where available, pay for our Pro versions. This removes  advertising and significantly reduce the amount of data we collect from  your use of our apps (see the full Policy below).


  • In addition to IAPs your device also gives you control to limit the  data we collect from you and how we use it. Ultimately you can also  choose to delete and stop using the app at which point any data  collection will cease.

By using our apps you agree to the collection and use of certain data as described in this Policy.  

 

We are the data controller, which means that we will determine the  purposes for processing your personal data and the manner in which  processing is carried out. This Privacy Policy describes how we will use  your personal data. If you have any queries on how we use your personal  data please contact us at support@desoline.com.

This Privacy Policy was last updated 20th September 2018. We reserve the right to make changes to it and publish the latest version which shall then apply.

Information you share with us

 

We do not require you to directly provide any personal information to  us to start using our services. It is not necessary for you to have  created an account (although you may choose to do so), nor will we ever  make your use of our apps public, other than occasionally quoting user  reviews posted in app stores on our website or in other publicity.


If you do choose to create an account with us (website, review or upgrade to premium), you  must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide the  additional services linked to registration to you. This includes an  email address and password. We use this information to authenticate your  account only and will keep it secure.


In addition, should you contact us directly (either via the app,  website or a direct email) you will be providing your name, email  address and (when contacting us from the app) an app ID. We will keep  the content of your message and contact information to enable us to  respond to your request.

Advertisers and data partners:

In case you have not purchased a Pro version of the app or made the “Go Premuim” IAP then we may provide to third party advertising and data  partners information about your activity on our app and your location.  These partners may collect information about your activities to provide  you contextual advertising based upon your interests and activity or be  used in location-based products such as location audiences, location  analytics and measurement. 


In return for some of the premium features of Tube map: London underground and route planner, Londonmapper: Transit Navigation, World Map, Tube Map - London Underground live status, Rome Metro - Map & Route planner, PDF Reader , New York Subway – MTA map and routes, Berlin Subway – U-Bahn & S-Bahn map (BVG), you may  choose to be a peer on the Luminati network. By doing so you agree to  have read and accepted the terms of service of the Luminati SDK EULA. You may opt out of the network from settings 

Location information

We require information about your current location to effectively offer  you our services. Subject to your settings, we may collect, use and  store additional information about your 

location to operate or  personalize our services such as nearest attraction, nearest station etc. You control whether we collect this data at all times or only when you are using the app, or even if we can collect this data  at all. If you choose not to share location, we will be unable to offer  you our full level of intended service.


 In addition to other information described in this policy, we may collect and share precise location information, through methods such as mobile “SDKs”.  This location information may be used by itself, aggregated, or combined with mobile identifiers (such as IDFAs and Android IDs), and shared with third parties, for purposes related to advertising, attribution (e.g., measuring ad performance) analytics

and research.   You can remove your consent to having your location data collected by changing the settings on your device.(Certain services may lose functionality as a result.) 

You can opt-out from any interest-based advertising through your device settings. When you have opted out using this setting on a device, advertisers will not use in-app information collected from that device to infer your interests or serve ads to that device that are targeted based on your inferred interests.
