5. Your mobile device


Photo and Camera Services


Our APP is designed to help you produce healthy turf. To better support you with this, we give you the option to use certain features on your mobile phone, such as uploading images and photos directly from your camera or photo gallery. You can choose not to allow access to these services, doing so will not impact on the operational ability of the TurfToolkit App. If you grant us access, this does not mean you are granting us unlimited access to your camera roll. Before we access these features on your mobile device, we will always ask for your permission. If you provide such permission, we will collect only the information for the specific purposes explained at the time we ask for your permission.


As stated, the use of the camera function is optional, and purely there to help you build your own personal turf health log. We will not share any of this data with third party organisations, we will always ask permission before accessing your photos or camera and we will never scan or import your photo library or camera roll. If you give us permission to access photos or your camera, we will only use the specific images that you choose to upload into the TurfToolkit App.


Location


You can also create locations using the TurfToolkit App. We will not gather or use the specific location of your mobile device (by using, for example, GPS or Bluetooth) without first getting your explicit permission. And if you choose to share location information but later change your mind, you will always have the ability to stop sharing.
