Who we are

Our website address is: http://citylogger.org. We are charitable organisation looking to improve awareness of litter in cities. We do this by using technology to allow people to collect and share that awareness to litter problems in their city.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

App Data

We collect positional data of your phone when you log litter (an item) or pick it up. This collects your latitude and longitude co-ordinates provided by your phone. You can also log things like litter warning to let other know of bigger problems, like flytipping etc.

The app has requies you to login, and thus provide an email address for validation. This email address is the only personal data we will ask of you. It will allow us to validate you are a real user. We recomend that you use a unique password to ensure safty and once you are logged on the phone.

We ask for a Nick Name (which will be seen by team leads to recognise you) which will be “public” by the team admins of the teams you request access to.

We will not share email addresses with any third party [unless required under law], we will however share the litter data. This data has a unique number associated to you, which we will keep seperate, also it has a readable team name, meaning that the litter data can be shared directly with the team organisation.

We need to keep your unique number assocated to your points, as that is how your score is calculated, we need to know which points you logged and picked.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

Who we share your data with

Website data is not shared with any other organisation, but only located on our hosting providers and database, which the providors have access to support us.

We think at some point the app litter data will be shared with the team representative or owner. Or relative organisation that it associates to.

We indend on create obfuscated outputs for bigger councils and organisations to understand the accumalative nature of the problem of litter in areas of interest. It is imporant that this will be aggregated data, and not linked to unique identifiers.
