Product Privacy Policy

Last updated: December 12th, 2018

Welcome to “ClimaCell”, an online weather forecasting platform that provides advanced weather tools for generating high-definition weather maps for its users (“you” and “your”) through Microweather™ API and/or HyperCast™ (each, a “Service” or “Platform”) and our mobile application (the “App”).

The Service is owned and operated by ClimaCell Inc. (the “Company”, “we”, “us” and “our”), and is available through our website climacell.co (the “Website”).

This privacy policy (the “Policy”) describes our privacy practices with respect to the Service, including the ways your personal information and data is collected, stored, used and shared. Providing us your information is optional and voluntary on your part – you are not legally obligated to provide us information. We do, however, require it in order to allow you to use our Service.

This Policy is incorporated by reference to the Terms of Service (the “Terms”) as agreed upon and signed between ClimaCell and your organization, and constitutes an integral part of them.
