Information Collection and Use
We collect the following types of information:

Rain Gauge data: When you add a rain gauge in the app, we store the name of the gauge, its GPS coordinates, and the user ID it is related to.
Analytics data: We collect anonymous, aggregated information about how users interact with our app through Firebase Analytics.
The app does use third-party services that may collect information used to identify you.

Information is collected in two ways:
Directly from you when you sign up and when you add rain gauges.
Automatically when you use our app, through Firebase Analytics.
