Mobile app privacy
Information we get from the Baribuddy mobile app

Device ID and identity of the user
The Baribuddy app captures information about the device it has been installed on, such as the model of your phone, the version of the operating system it is using and the version of the app that has been installed. This allows Baribuddy AB to accurately notify you when updates to the app are available for your version. The app also captures a device ID reference which allows us to send notification messages to your specific device if you have agreed that we may do so.
Bariatric center version
If you choose to use a Bariatric center version of the Baribuddy App it’ll enable us to improve your experience of using the app – for example, we are then able to provide you with personalised Bariatric center algorithm, offers and messages. In order to do this effectively we will track your interactions with these offers and messages, views, activations, and redemptions to ensure the Bariatric center version is providing the best service possible.
If you give permission for the Baribuddy app to access location services (such as GPS or location from the network), the app will use this data to improve the functionality of certain features.
Storage, photos, media files, camera.

If the app cannot use an available Wi-Fi network, data will be retrieved from the network using the device’s 3G or 4G connection.

Vibration control
