Kora rewards you by using mobility data from your smartphone to distinguish between different types of movement (ie. walking, cycling, driving, etc). We use this data solely for the purpose of rewarding you and will not use it for other purposes.
How is my data collected?
Kora integrates with Apple Healthkit to obtain information to track steps and walking/running distance.
By setting location tracking to “Always” in the Settings, Kora can track your transport to determine distance travelled by car and public transit.
Kora needs access to motion and fitness tracking to be able to distinguish between different types of mobility such as driving vs. cycling.
A differentiation must be made between the following data and processes:
Location and movement data: Only after successful registration and consent (opt-in), to confirm that the user's location and movement data may be accessed, is the mobility data recorded and stored in pseudonymised form on the servers of AWS. The location and movement data form the basis for making statements about mobility behaviour and converting this into carbon emissions. This conversion is carried out by Kora. Prior to further processing, this location and movement data is pseudonymised for each individual user. Pseudonymised data means that the data relating to the personal profile of the user is replaced with a user ID and stored separately from the mobility data. This makes it very difficult to assign the data to a specific person.
Only Kora have access to the pseudonymised data, which in turn may only be used for calculations to sensitise the population to climate protection. It may also be used in aggregated form to assist communities and cities in relation to climate protection and more efficient mobility. Climate-relevant data: Data such as carbon emissions, and distance travelled per means of transport.
Kora will not share your data with any third party nor it will use it for any advertising purpose.
The user can unsubscribe from Kora App at any time. From this point on, no further mobility data will be collected in the app. Furthermore, it is possible to switch location identification, movement and fitness data on or off at any time in the settings of the mobile phone.
If you want any data, which has already been collected, to be deleted immediately, you can send a message to email@example.com
