鶹ƵAV

How do apps, devices and TVs capture my data?

Updated: 23 January 2023

Any 鶹ƵAV apps you download to your mobile or TV can access certain data on your device.

Some data gets collected automatically, like:

  • The types of mobile device you’re using
  • A “unique identifier” (like the device ID or an IP address)
  • Info about how our apps are being used.

This lets the app remember you and give you whatever content you’ve asked for. 

Some apps will ask for your permission (consent), to use your data to provide additional features. For example, the 鶹ƵAV Weather app asks to use your device’s location, (Town/City level), to give you, local weather. The 鶹ƵAV Weather app does not share your device’s location. Your device’s location or ‘searched’ location is stored on your device for a period of 4-6 hours, the 鶹ƵAV does not store your information. You can turn this on or off at any time via your device’s settings.

To be on the safe side...

Make sure you read the permissions section of any app before you download it. It’s the best way of understanding exactly what data it will capture.

Apps may store info on your device too

For instance, if you download a programme in the iPlayer mobile app, it’ll get stored on your device.
