Air Lookout: Privacy Policy & Terms

Information We Collect

There is no personal information that Air Lookout collects. Air Lookout does log which air quality stations are being read. We do not collect or save user location data with this information. Furthermore, it is not possible to discern or triangulate the user’s location with this information (only the closest station is marked as being read).

Your Location

Air Lookout optionally uses your location to determine the nearest air quality station. This information is sent to the Air Lookout server but it is not recorded or stored. Additionally, Air Lookout uses low accuracy location services when sending information to the Air Lookout server (accurate to within a kilometer). All of this data is encrypted and sent over a secure HTTP connection.

To display your location on the map tab, a higher quality location service is required, however this information does not leave the device.

The Air Lookout app optionally stores your last known (accurate to within a kilometer) cached location to provide a faster startup on app launch. This information does not leave your device. There is not a history of locations stored. Only the last location is stored. No other apps have access to this information. This information is deleted when Air Lookout is deleted.

Home Site

You may optionally choose a Home Site. A unique identifier for that station will be sent to the Air Lookout server. If morning or evening notifications are optionally enabled, those times will be sent to the server (as they are required for push notifications to work).

Air Lookout will never sell or share your location information to third-parties.

Personally-Identifying Information

Your preferences for Air Lookout are stored on your device. This information is not sent outside the app and can not be seen by anyone working for Air Lookout. This information, besides your selected Home Site, does not leave the device.


Air Lookout does not record or log any user activity, preferences or personal information for analytics.

The Air Lookout server keeps a log of how often each air quality station’s data is accessed.

Deleting Your Information

By deleting the Air Lookout app, you will be deleting all stored preferences and data stored by Air Lookout.

Data Share With Outside Parties

Air Lookout does not collect or share any personal data or preferences with outside parties

Business Transfers

If Air Lookout, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Air Lookout goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, this policy and its effects may change or be amended.

Your Consent

By using Air Lookout you consent to our Privacy Policy.


You hereby indemnify us and undertake to keep us indemnified against any losses, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, legal expenses and any amounts paid by us to a third party in settlement of a claim or dispute on the advice of our legal advisers) incurred or suffered by us arising out of use of this app or any breach by you of any provision of these terms of use, or arising out of any claim that you have breached any provision of these terms of use.

Air Lookout may change its Privacy Policy occasionally. Your continued usage of Air Lookout constitutes your acceptance of these changes.
