Does it ?
First of all, collecting and recording the information does not seem necessary for the app to work.
Then, to enable an external user control over the device, you just need to connect the two smartphones together. You do not necessarilly need the data to transit to third parties. You probably can route all the information over tor and never have a clear message given to the company or anyone else than the two involved party.
Or am I missing something?
