What data does G-Stomper VA-Beast collect and how is that data used?
G-Stomper VA-Beast uses Google Analytics and Google Analytics for Firebase, two analytics services provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics helps to improve the application user interface and workflow, as well as to identify performance bottle necks. The information generated by Google Analytics about your use of this software (NOT including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the software, compiling reports on software activity for the developer (“PLANET-H.COM”) and providing other services relating to software activity and app usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Your IP address is NOT transmitted to Google and will not be associated with any of the transmitted data. By not activating the “Opt Out Google Analytics” checkbox , you consent to the processing of data about your use of this software by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
G-Stomper VA-Beast uses Firebase Cloud Messaging, a service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Firebase Cloud Messaging is used to send you news about new features or special deals in form of Push Notifications. To target Push Notifications to particular user groups, Firebase Cloud Messaging uses the collected data by Google Analytics for Firebase. By not activating the “Turn Off Notifications” checkbox , you consent to receive Push Notifications as set out above.
Referring to the Firebase Help page the information collected through Firebase Analytics’s default implementation includes:
- the number of users and sessions
- session duration
- operating systems
- device models
- first launches
- app opens
- app updates
- in-app purchases

In addition to the collected data through Firebase Analytics’s default implementation, we collect data about the way you use the app (what screens and features you use). This data is used exclusively to improve the application user interface and workflow, as well as to identify performance bottle necks and other potential problems. We furthermore check the presence of other G-Stomper products to prevent you from receiving duplicate Push Notifications from multiple apps.
The Firebase SDK library uses an app-instance identifier to identify a unique installation of the App. When using the SDK, an app-instance identifier gets generated at the app level. By default, the Firebase SDK will collect identifiers for mobile devices (e.g., Android Advertising ID) and utilize technologies similar to cookies. By default, on Android the SDK will collect Android Advertising ID. Furthermore, The Firebase Cloud Messaging SDK will generate a unique registration token for the client app-instance to identify the device while sending Push Notifications.
