How we get that information and why we have it 

Most of the information that we process is provided to us by you:

-        When you register, browse and use the services available on our app;

-        When you get in touch with us or respond to communications from us; or

-        Directly from our affiliates with your consent.

We also use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

Other data is collected through the use of various technologies: 

̶         We collect information about your interaction with our app, for example, through Google Analytics, cookies and software development kits (SDKs ). For more detailed information on the cookies we collect and how we use the information collected, please review the cookie notice.

̶         We take repeated measurements from your device from time to time including location data, network type, network operator, cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength and quality, and the identifiers of connected cell towers and Wi-Fi routers (including both BSSID and SSID).

̶         We measure how data is flowing, both passively (by monitoring how fast it moves through other apps), and actively (by running a test that downloads or uploads data). We do not monitor the content of your data usage through this particular application. This aids us in measuring the experience you have of wireless networks.

This is collected with other data such as related IP addresses, the device MAC number and/or the Android serial number. We generally pseudonymise and collected this data for aggregate analytics and statistical purposes, such as understanding how much data a device contributes.
