Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application WindPush (“Application”) for mobile devices that was created by Daniel Wold and Daniel Hjertholm. The Application WindPush is the ultimate app for anyone that needs specific wind conditions. Based on the settings you choose, you’ll be notified when the wind you are waiting for is forecasted. As an example you can get notified when the forecast says more than 15 knots from north-east or less than 5 knots from any wind direction. You can easily choose which days of the week you want to monitor, so you won’t be bothered when you’re busy. WindPush covers over 10 million locations worldwide and can also use the iPhone’s GPS to search for locations with available weather data close to your current location. WindPush uses weather data from yr.no, delivered by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the NRK. Your use of WindPush is at your own risk, and we would like to point out that weather alerts for more than two or three days ahead can be very imprecise. We take no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the access to or use of weather data.
