GPXSCAN respects your privacy. This policy explains the privacy practices of GPXSCAN on www.gpxscan.com (the “Website“) and with respect to GPXSCAN’s own applications as well as third party technologies implemented by such applications (together: the “Applications“) (Website, Applications, and other GPXSCAN services are collectively referred to as “Services“). This privacy policy describes the ways GPXSCAN collects, uses and discloses your Personal Information and the rights and options available to you.

Users can access the Services through our Website and/or Applications on Devices. A “Device” is any computer used to access the Services, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device. Additionally, GPXSCAN provides technology from certain third party partners with whom we have entered into agreements (“Partners”), in order to provide you with a more personalized and contextualized experience while using our applications and/or services.

This Privacy Policy governs your access of the Services, regardless of how you access them, and by using our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy.

This policy is incorporated into GPXSCAN’s terms of use (the “Terms of Use“), available at www.gpxscan.com.

Our Services are not directed to persons under 16. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 16. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at info@gpxscan.com. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information from our files.

In this policy, the term “Personal Information” means any information that may be used with reasonable efforts to contact you and/or identify you, such as a first and last name, home address, phone number and email addresses, places you visit, etc.

Personal Information that you provide:

On our Website:

On our Website we do not collect any Personal Information about you, unless it is information you have provided us as part of our Website’s various ‘contact us’ forms. We use this information in order to provide you with our Website services. You choose what you want to share and how you want to share it. For example, we collect such information on this Website if you participate in a survey, provide us feedback, send us questions, or otherwise supply additional information or respond to our requests for information. When you use the Services, GPXSCAN may ask you to provide certain contact and personal details, such as a telephone number and e-mail address. Bear in mind that false, incorrect, or outdated information may impair GPXSCAN’s ability to provide you with the Services and to contact you when necessary. GPXSCAN will explicitly indicate the fields for mandatory completion. You are not required by law to provide us with any information; however, if you do not enter the requisite data in these fields, you may not be able to use the Services.

On our GPXSCAN, the Services  and the Applications:

We collect information on device-level events, such as crashes and battery life information, in order to provide customer service. We also collect and analyze the signals and data from the Device’s sensors such as GPS, accelerometer, barometer, WiFi, Bluetooth, Cellular transceivers, magnetometer, Gyroscope and any other on-Device sensors. We use such signals in order to perform the Services and to understand your mobility status and whereabouts, in order to provide you with a more contextual service that can better address your personal needs and in order to improve your experience with the Services.

We may further use your information together with other information collected from other users, in order to provide you with some unique crowd-sourced services and to allow you to benefit from the wisdom of the crowd. As one example, we can use the on board sensors to understand when and where users are parking their cars and guide them back to the parking location. This information does not by itself identify you to GPXSCAN.

Most of the other information we collect from or analyze on your Devices, such as your advertiser ID, your device and hardware IDs and device type, your carrier, your carrier user ID, operating system version, data regarding which other apps are installed on the Device and the duration of their use, and basic usage stats about your Device and use of the Services does not by itself identify you to GPXSCAN, though it may be unique or consist of or contain information that you consider personal or that may be deemed Personal Information under applicable law. You may provide additional Personal Information that will be used to personalize the Services, for example by providing you the shortest route between work and home, and enhance your experience with the Services. Further information, such as your driving route, distance and speed, traffic data, as well as parking place and timing and other real time parking data, may be used and shared anonymously with other users as part of crowd-sourced services, when you use the Services. Further information may be collected when you communicate with GPXSCAN. For example, if you submit a request, provide us with feedback, participate in a survey, contact GPXSCAN’s support team, or report a violation to the abuse team.

Location based information that we collect:

If you have the Applications installed on your Device, you may be sending us location information. This information may reveal your actual location, such as GPS data, or it may not, such as when you submit a partial address to look at a map of the area. GPXSCAN uses that information to provide you and other users with the Services. GPXSCAN may make further use of your location information by analyzing it anonymously with other information from multiple users to generate crowd-sourced information about sites, shops and other places and attractions that will assist in providing you and others with relevant services in the vicinity.

Signals and data will be collected by the various sensors on your Device, such as the Accelerometer, GPS, Barometer, WiFi, Bluetooth, Cellular network, Gyroscope, NFC, Magnetometer and other on-board sensors. We use these signals and data in order to obtain data regarding your mobility status, your location and your demographics and to perform anonymized analytics (including predictive analytics) with respect to the same.

GPXSCAN may also use your location information to create aggregated anonymous data and to use such data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When you install the Applications you may be requested by the Device operating system to provide your consent to the use of your location by the Application. If you do not wish to share your location you can chose to deny such access. Some of the Applications contain an internal opt-out option from the collection of your location data, usually under the Application’s settings.

Regarding any GPXSCAN Application that is installed on a Device, you may uninstall the Application at all times, by using the Application’s uninstall options, or by using the programs removal feature of your operating system. Following any opt-out or uninstallation process, GPXSCAN will not be able to collect any further information from you through such Application, or provide you with location based information and Service including crowd-based services about sites, shops and other services, places and attractions in your close vicinity, also through said Application.

Google Firebase Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Services, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they used prior to coming to the Services.

Website Cookies:

In addition to gathering Personal Information, we may also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Website Services, such as Google Analytics. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device.

The cookies may contain a variety of information, such as the content of search queries, the Website’s pages you have accessed, session durations and IP addresses. We use this information for the above purposes and to monitor and analyze use of the Services, for the Services’ technical administration, to increase our Services’ functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Services to process their requests.

We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service.

GPXSCAN and/or said advertising companies may use cookies on your Device.
