Why we need cookies on the free meteoblue website:

meteoblue uses cookies to:

  • determine the frequency of website use and make the necessary capacity available;
  • show you what you want and make the website use easier for you: last visited locations are stored within a cookie, so that you do not have to search again for the desired location at your next visit on our website. The same applies to the selected language and units: a cookie stores units like °C or °F, m/s or mph to show the data on the website according to your wishes.

These cookies do not permit any personalised tracking.

Why we need advertising on the free meteoblue website:

The advertising on our public free weather website is the main source of financing for this large public offer. It allows us to:

  • maintain these unique features;
  • adapt the features to the evolving range of browsers and usage devices;
  • ensure sufficient server capacity and bandwidth;
  • develop new services and diagrams;
  • provide support to users with questions;
  • ensure rapid trouble-shooting in case of failures.

Our webpage has a very low ratio of advertising relative to the volume of weather information provided and to other weather services. We understand that advertising sometimes bothers our users, so we deliberately show only tailored advertising without any pop-ups, movies, etc., restricting the number of advertisers and using a relatively small percentage of the site for advertising.

Without tailored advertising, you would get:

  • Completely useless ads, unrelated to your preferences, even though you are absolutely not interested in those things;
  • Much less weather information and fewer regular updates;
  • Less functions;
  • Much less or no more innovation using modern technologies.

An offer without personalised advertising would mean that we have to reduce our free offer drastically. Without advertising, we would have to discontinue our free offer. Therefore, we are contingent on personalised advertising revenues to operate the free website with full functionality for our users, and we openly inform our users about it. By activating our web subscription (point+), you can deactivate the advertising and additionally benefit from unique features.

We are working on further financing mechanisms, and will be happy to receive your suggestions on how to finance a high quality, unique offer differently.

meteoblue website (ME offer)

With your free-of-charge registration, we offer additional functions free of charge:

  • selection and storage of locations as favourites for faster access to the weather information;
  • meteoMail, with which you can get daily weather forecasts by email for free for a selected location and time;
  • ability to post messages and photos;
  • and more.

The data collected for these purposes is not shared with any other providers, except for purposes where transmission is needed (e.g. e-mail).

Your privacy is important to us and will be taken into account accordingly.

The core of our offer is built on mutual confidence: We offer superior content to users who need and value it: they will recognise our efforts for providing special quality with the necessary tools and customisation and - where necessary - personalisation.

General remarks:

Advertising on our public free weather website is the main source of financing this large public offer. meteoblue offers one of the largest arrays of precision weather information available free of charge on the web, and advertising helps us maintain and further build this offer. We have designed our new page such that it shows less advertising relative to the weather information than before, and our webpage has a very low ratio of advertising compared to the volume of weather information provided. Nevertheless, we always seek to improve the user experience and appreciate your comments.

  • If you see larger advertising than in the past, please send us a screenshot, so we can try to solve the problem.
  • If you see improper advertising, please inform us immediately, best also with a screenshot. We control the sources of advertising, but can not be totally sure that some inappropriate content appears.
  • If you have suggestions on how to improve the user experience, write us.

Our free offer can only be sustained with personalised advertising. Alternatives to further reduce advertising on our website are:

  1. Use sub-pages (as interim solution in the meantime) which contain no advertising .
  2. Use an ad-blocker from your browser. This is your right, and we accept this as an option. We want to, however, make you aware of the fact that our free-of-charge services are currently financed with advertising, and that we can only sustain the quality of a free-of-charge service as long as sufficient users accept advertising.
  3. Subscribe to our special service point+ .
  4. Sponsor us.

We are committed to providing a high quality service and appreciate your opinion.
