Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

Fruitweb GmbH offers weather stations, frost warning devices and other sensor measuring devices for agriculture, as well as online services in the form of a website and an app. The subject of this online service is the processing and presentation of weather data for:

  • Forecast models of diseases and pests from various agricultural crops
  • The frost warning tool „Frostwecker“ for alarming when the temperature falls below or exceeds individually defined thresholds
  • Flat rate data transmission (cellular network, NB-IoT) for fruitweb weather stations and display of weather data
  • Weather data service (reading and processing of weather data)

The use of fruitweb services is usually linked to the use of your own weather station or a frost warning device. However, it is not a requirement.
