Privacy Policy

Core Principles

Swackett’s IQ Weather Engine delivers accurate forecasts while protecting your privacy.

Swackett provides a visual weather forecasting service. Our hope is that you will delighted by our innovative forecasts.

While we want our users to gain the greatest benefit from our forecasts, we take your privacy very seriously. Security and privacy are designed into the core of all our products.

Swackett apps (version 5 and greater) are fully compliant with the Data Protection Act (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our privacy policy is driven by these core principles:

  • We get it. We view your privacy as a fundamental human right. We protect your privacy in all modern Swackett apps.
  • Swackett apps DO NOT collect, store or manage any personally identifiable information about you.
  • In order for Swackett to provide a visual weather forecast, our apps need to know the location for which you want a forecast (to be able to provide a forecast of real value to you).
  • Respecting your privacy, we do not share the location of your weather forecasts with any third parties. We do not sell this information.
  • While Swackett apps do allow you to share peeps, gauges and other Swackett screens to social media — this is achieved using the operating system on your device (not a direct connection). 
  • Swackett apps DO NOT directly connect to any social media service. Swackett apps DO NOT connect to the Facebook Graph API (or any other similar type of tracking API).
  • Our Users own their app settings (called personalizations in Swackett) which are embedded in the Swackett app. These settings can be discarded by simply deleting the app.
  • Our Users own any feedback and/or technical support related conversations (logged in the Swackett Support Center).
  • We do not provide any third parties with personally identifiable information about our users (with the exception of responding to legal process).
  • Any User may request to have all of their feedback and technical support data deleted at any time. This process can take up to 30 days (but is usually completed much faster).

Our privacy policy is reviewed at regular intervals to ensure it meets the current statutory requirements.

B. Use of Cookies

Swackett may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

Swackett reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our web site unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into Swackett technologies that relies on third-party cookies).

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our apps.

C. Personal Information Uses

We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:

  • To fulfill your service requests for services
  • To protect ourselves from liability
  • To respond to legal process or comply with law, or
  • In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.

4. Changes to this Statement

Swackett has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy page.
