How will we use your data?

Aurora Labs collects your data so that we can:
– Process your booking.
– Email you with special offers we think you might like (if you accepted to receive such offers).
– Display weather and auroral information in your location.
– Issue your Aurora Labs certificate.
– Contact you, if needed, for, but not limited to: booking matters, to answer your questions or requests, activity changes, etc.

Note on geolocating: our new Aurora Forecast app can now geolocalise you in order to display information concerning your exact location. We do not store the geolocation data; it is only sent to the online services concerned with getting and processing your geographic coordinates in order to display weather and auroral information.

If you choose to send a report in our Aurora Forecast app, you are sending Aurora Labs your geographic coordinates. These coordinates will not be publicly displayed and your location will not be made available neither on a map, nor otherwise. What we’ll do is use your coordinates to create an area around you. And if someone else (including you!) is located in that area, they will see that a report has been sent. Again, without seeing your exact location. In addition, your coordinates along with your report, will be deleted automatically in 6 hours.

Aurora Labs takes all reasonable measures to protect your personal data, but cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose, under circumstances beyond our control.
