Thanks for using Vermeer! The Vermeer mobile application, including any associated software (the “App”), is provided by AeroCine Ventures, Inc., d/b/a Aerobo (“Aerobo” “we” or “us”), located at 253 36th Street, Suite 316B
Brooklyn, NY 11232, United States. Aerobo is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you a powerful and safe online experience. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to the App.

          By accepting our Terms, and using the App, you consent to the data practices described in this Policy. All capitalized words not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Terms of Use.

What We Collect

          In order to deliver our core features and functionality, this App collects identification and location information from or about users and their devices, as follows:

  • Personally identifiable information or “personal information” is data that can be used to identify or contact a single natural person.

When you initially log in, the App pings Aerobo and Aerobo receives:

  • your Email address,
  • First and Last Name,
  • user-provided location (e.g. Brooklyn, NY),

          These types of identifiable data are stored separately from the Location and Activity Data we collect via our sensors. We will retain your personally identifiable information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless otherwise required or permitted by law.

          By signing up for and using our App, you agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to, technical information about any device running the App, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to our App. If we do pair or associate your Location or Activity Data with Personal Information you provide, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.

  • Location Data is information about the precise geographic location of the smartphone or other device you register with our App. In order to assess whether a registered user is utilizing the App, Location Data is always detected.

           The App requires access to location data to reach a determination about when you are operating an unmanned aerial vehicle (“UAV”) to track operation of the UAV. The App will continuously detect and analyze data about location in the background.

  • Activity Data, such as motion data. The App uses sensors to collect motion data, in order to —
    • detect when you start operating an UA

          An internal ID is stored with both the activity data collected and the personal profile data of a registered user that allows Aerobo, if needed, to connect personal profile to activity data. IMPORTANT: We use the motion sensor in the phone’s operating system and technical means to ascertain when a registered device is in use by the operator of the UAV.

  • Passively Collected Data, such as IP address or Device ID. As is true of most applications, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, or device ID. We use this information that we collect, which does not identify individual users by name or contact information, to analyze trends, to administer the App, to track users’ movements with respect to the App. If we do pair or associate this data with Personal Information you provide, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
