Privacy policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the Butikk mobile application ('Application') on your mobile device. The Application collects and processes information about your shopping behavior. By using the Application, you consent to Butikk's collection, use and publication of information as set forth below. You may not download and use the Application if you are under sixteen (16) years of age.

A. Information collected through the application

Personal information is information which identifies you as an individual, whether directly or indirectly through the combination with other information held by Butikk. In order for you to download and use the Application, Butikk may require you to provide personal information such as your e-mail address, gender and age.

Butikk also collects non-personal information that does not directly or in combination with other information identifies you as an individual, such as your type of device, operating system (OS), type of mobile browser, your use of the Application, your real-time location (based on information provided by your device OS), accelerometer data and gyroscope data. Further, depending on your device make and type and your permissions, Butikk also collect the following data supplied by the devices OS: activity information, step detection and count and battery information.

You agree that Butikk may store a pseudonymous Butikk ID number on your device that will be used for profiling as explained below. Butikk may further request and collect your pseudonymous feedback on assumptions made by Butikk based on non-personal information it collects.

For the avoidance of doubt, Butikk defines pseudonymous data as personal data processed in such a manner that they can no longer be attributed to you without the use of additional information, which Butikk keeps separately and subject to technical and organizational measures to this effect.

B. Purpose of collection and use of information

Butikk collects and uses personal information for the following specific purposes:

  • to send you adequate information regarding the application

  • to respond to your comments and problems

  • for data analysis

  • to investigate potentially unlawful use of the application

Butikk only collects personal information that is adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the above purposes.

Non-personal information (including location data) is used by Butikk to build pseudonymous profiles that may allow Butikk to detect where you live and work, where you are shopping and what your shopping routine behavior is. Butikk will never publish your pseudonymous location data. Non-personal information is used to refine the algorithms that detect shopping routines, to find battery-efficient triggers for start and stop of transport detection logging and to conduct analytics in order to improve the Application.

C. Third party recipients of information

Butikk may disclose your personal information to

  • Butikk's service providers who provide services to Butikk, such as hosting (including Amazon Web Services), data analysis, IT services, and other similar services requested by Butikk.

  • Butikk's suppliers e.g. offshore development hubs and service providers

  • Butikk's clients e.g. SDK licensees

  • Other recipients based on legitimate grounds or a legal obligation.

Other than as set forth above, Butikk will not transfer any of your personal information to third parties without your explicit consent.

Transfers only relate to personal information which is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purpose for which they are transferred and abides by the concept of data minimization.

D. Security, reliability and retention of information

Butikk has implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.

Butikk takes reasonable steps to ensure that any personal information in its possession is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.

Butikk will delete your personal information upon simple request (unless a longer retention period is required by law). Non-personal information may be retained without limitation in time.
