Some data is automatically collected for the purpose of research and development for human activity recognition, and for security reasons. Other information may be provided by you explicitly when using the app.
This information is non-sensitive, but may contain your location, your name (if given), and a device identifier which could be used to identify you.
Below are some examples of what we may collect:

How long we keep information
In Short: Information within the App is discarded after 1 month, and information sent to us from the App is kept until consent to use it for research is revoked.
Information that is processed within the App is either discarded after a few seconds, or stored inside the App for up to 1 month. Due to technological limitations, old information cannot be deleted until the App is opened, uninstalled, or its data is cleared.
Information sent to us for the purposes of research and development is kept until consent is revoked.
We will only keep information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process personal information, we will either delete or fully anonymise it by removing all identifiers and location data.
How we keep your information safe
In Short: We use technological and organisational measures to prevent unauthorized access to your information.
Information is either short-lived, or stored using appropriate technological measures to ensure that only our App may access the information.
All sensor data sent to us is protected by appropriate technical and organisational measures to limit access to only those who are authorized.
