You also allow access to information on your phone (contact list, location data) when choosing to use Nuki Services. Depending on the type of Nuki Service, this information may be transmitted, stored and used to provide you with a better experience.

We also use the information that we collect for analyzing user preferences and for reporting. This allows us to improve the Nuki Services, create new features, promotions and identify technical problems.
