What does this policy cover?

This privacy policy only applies to what happens within Wildlife Wonders App. It does not extend to any websites or other online services that can be accessed from the Wildlife Wonders App including any links we may provide to social media websites.

From the app the UDID (Unique Device Identifier) is read and encrypted. This is needed to create a unique user experience. This UDID is stored on our server on Azure. The UDID is send ‘one-way encrypted’ to Azure and gets also stored like this, so the real UDID can never become available. It’s also not possible to link this to a specific user because no other data source is connected to this.
