To the full extent permitted by law neither Priori Data GmbH nor any of its affiliates, nor any other person, accepts any liability whatsoever for any direct or consequential loss arising from any use of this report or the information contained herein.

No matter contained in this document and no part of this material may be (i) copied, photocopied or duplicated in any form by any means or (ii) redistributed without the prior written consent of Priori Data GmbH. Validation, Limits and Accuracy We continuously validate our data with independent third-party data sources. The Priori methodology employs a multitude of techniques to ensure that our estimates achieve a high degree of accuracy. License Type Methodology Disclaimer Priori Data GmbH collects and analyses data using a variety of proprietary techniques and technologies conforming to established and accepted rules. The information contained in this report has been compiled by Priori, referencing our own primary research data and that of 3rd Party sources considered to be reliable. In select instances contributing partners collaborate on specialized reports. No representation or warranty, express or implied, is made by Priori, its affiliates or any other person as to its accuracy, completeness or correctness. This report contains derived values and statistical estimates which may bear an error. For example, mobile app download numbers are estimations based on Priori's own methodologies and statistical estimation models, and the download estimates may over- or under-estimate the actual downloads of any particular mobile app. The error is highest for single apps and quickly decreases with growing number of apps in estimated clusters. For instance, estimation for all apps in a category or all apps published by a publisher will be quite accurate, while an estimation for a single app may not be as accurate. The download models constantly evolve by including more base observations and more variable to regression analysis. This also means that download estimations with different variances of model will yield slightly different download numbers. 11 of 11 www.prioridata.com
