Reason for Data Collection and Types of collected Data

Rights Granted by Contract Partner to App Radar
For purposes of running the Tool, the provision of ASMS and to provide Collected Data to the Contractual Partner, the Contractual Partner grants a limited power of attorney, and appoints App Radar as the Contractual Partner’s attorney in-fact and agent, to access Developer Consoles, store their Developer Consoles Account Information and retrieve and use their Collected Data with the full power and authority to do and perform each action necessary in connection with such activities, as the Contractual Partner could do in person (including configuring App Radar so that it is compatible with the App Stores for which the Contractual Partner submits information).
The Contractual Partner acknowledges and agrees that App Radar is acting as agent of the Contractual Partner and not on behalf or as an agent of a third party while accessing / retrieving Contractual Partner’s collected data. Moreover, the Contractual Partner acknowledges and agrees that App Radar is not acting as their agent when using Collected data to generate and provide estimates of App Performance to Contractual Partners.
Usage of Collected Data
App Radar may access and include a Contractual Partner’s Collected Data in the pool of data used by App Radar to generate and provide estimates of app performance (e.g., downloads, revenues), including across publishers, geographies and marketplaces, to subscribers of App Radar. Subscribers to App Radar never receive a Contractual Partner’s specific set of Collected Data in an identifiable form. The Contractual Partner hereby acknowledges and consents to the use of their Collected Data in this manner by using App Radar.
Estimates generated by App Radar may include performance estimates of the Contractual Partner’s apps. These estimates are derived from aggregated pools of information that may include Contractual Partner’s Collected Data. Such estimates are non-identifiable even though the estimates may be very similar to the actual performance data provided as part of the Contractual Partner’s Collected Data and the estimates may specifically name each app and publisher.
In addition to the foregoing, the Contractual Partner hereby agrees to provide App Radar with data that App Radar will use in an anonymized way to build and operate new services and products.
Disclosure of Collected Data
App Radar will not, except as set out herein, provide Collected Data to a third party in an identifiable form without the Contractual Partner’s consent, unless this is required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, or when App Radar in good faith concludes that disclosure is necessary to protect App Radar’s rights, implement a change of control transaction, protect the Contractual Partner’s safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.The Contractual Partner understands and agrees that App Radar may not be sponsored or endorsed by any third parties accessible through App Radar.
A limited number of App Radar employees may log in to App Radar on the Contractual Partner’s account in order to maintain the Services. Employees of App Radar are required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement to ensure the privacy of your Collected Data and Developer Consoles Account Information.
The use of App Radar requires sensitive statistical and financial data to be stored on App Radar’s servers.
Steps have been taken to ensure this data stays private. While using App Radar, all data that is transferred between the Contractual Partner’s computer and App Radar’s servers is encrypted with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Third Party Terms
Contract Partners are required to follow third party terms (especially but not limited to terms of App Stores) and act in accordance with them while employing App Radar Tool or App Marketing Services that are provided in connection with such third parties.
Contract Partners acknowledge that if third parties discontinue or deny services to them and that the provision of App Radar Tool or App Marketing services is thus prevented partially or in total, that these are circumstances beyond App Radar’s control and grant Contractual Partners no rights vis-a-vis App Radar.
Indemnification for App Radar
The Contractual Partner agrees to indemnify and hold App Radar, their directors, officers, employees and suppliers harmless to the fullest extent of applicable law from any claim, action, demand, loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including, without limitation, legal fees) arising from or in connection with a Contractual Partner’s breach of this DSP a Contractual Partner’s violation of any laws or regulations or third-party rights (such as intellectual property or privacy rights) any content the Contractual Partner submitted to or through App Radar any dispute the Contractual Partner has or may have with other users or any third party.
