OutScout ("the app") is a free android outdoor app. The app has a built in AR-compass, tracking features and makes it possible to build your own collection of favorit places on OpenStreetMap. The app is provided by CREATIVE BYTES [FM] e.U. (in the following referred to as "we", "our").
We do not collect any kind of personal data. All your recorded locations and tracks are stored in a database on your device. It's not required to log-in or enter personal data to operate the app. An exception to this rule is when you decide to make in-app purchases. Therefore google collects your payment information.
The app collects anonymous data that help to determine problems and enhance your user experiance. Therefore we uses the Google Analytics, a long-running and widely used service that collects data about app usage and exception details.
Depending on your android version your're prompted to grant some permissions during installation process. Some other permissions may be asked later when using the app. All requested permissions are used to allow the app to work as an alarm clock - for no other reason.
You're able to store an image alongside with your favorite locations. Therefore accessing the camera is required.
Map tiles downloaded by the app are persisted on your SD-card the speed up loading times when navigating with OpenStreetMap.
The app is supported by advertisements that can be deactivated with an in-app purchase. Therefore a connection to the internet is required.
You can locate and track your current position on the map. Therefore accessing your GPS sensor is required.
To be able to build a anonymous, unique Id for your in-app purchase the app accesses your account-data. (By the way: this permission is no longer needed in our next version and will no longer be requested)
