Information We Collect
Geographic Location Data: The App may request access to your device's geographic location to enable the functionality of controlling a sTEM instrument that you have purchased. We collect and use this information solely for the purpose of communicating with and sending data to the instrument being used. We do not store or retain this geographic location data on our servers.
Personal Information: We do not collect any personal information (such as your name, address, email, or phone number) through the App. Any data related to controlling the sTEM instrument is processed locally on your device and transmitted directly to the instrument without involving our servers.
Non-Personal Information: To improve our App and user experience, we may collect non-personal information such as device information, usage statistics, and app crash reports. This information is anonymized and aggregated to help us identify and resolve issues and make improvements to the App.
Use of Collected Information
Geographic Location Data: The geographic location data collected by the App is used solely for the purpose of interacting with the TEM instrument being controlled by the user. The geographic location is supplied back to the user with the collected data. We do not use this data for any other purpose, nor do we share it with any third parties.
Personal Information: As mentioned earlier, we do not collect any personal information through the App. Therefore, we do not use or share any personal information in any manner.
Non-Personal Information: Non-personal information collected may be used to analyse and improve the App's performance, user interface, and functionality. This data is used in an aggregated and anonymous form and is not linked to any identifiable individual.
We take data security seriously and employ reasonable measures to protect the information collected through the App from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to safeguard your data, please understand that no method of transmission or storage over the internet is entirely secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute security.
The App may use third-party services, such as device location services, for the intended functionality. These third-party services may have their own privacy policies, and we encourage you to review them. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third-party services.
