ELECTRICBLUE, CRL is a technology transfer start-up developing electronic instruments to help the scientific community address large-scale issues related to climate change, ecology and biodiversity loss through application of innovative tools for environmental monitoring and bio-logging.

Depending on who you are, we may collect personal information for different purposes, such as:
Both versions of the EnvLogger Viewer app (Android and iOS) require permissions to access several features of your smartphone.
Permission to enable Near Field Communication (NFC) is mandatory, as this is the only way for the app to communicate with EnvLoggers. This permission only affects the ability to communicate using NFC, and it does not result in access to any personal data.
Regarding location information, the app also asks for the enabling of access to GPS information. By allowing this the geographical coordinates of your location will be appended to the log file whenever downloading temperature data from an EnvLogger. This is not mandatory (if not enabled Lat and Long fields will not be populated), but is highly recommended as location information can be extremely useful later to identify the origin of log files. Location information is only stored locally in log files and is not shared with us at any point.
Additionally, the app may also request access to the internal memory of your smartphone. This is mandatory since without that permission log files cannot be saved to the smartphone while downloading data from EnvLoggers.
