Certain Services may require the collection of the phone number of your device. We may associate that phone number to the mobile device information; however, we will not use that number for telemarketing to you without your consent.
Some mobile phone carriers are required to operate a system that pinpoints the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the carrier, we may automatically receive this information.
In addition, if you elect to use certain location based services (such as GPS assisted navigation instruction, tagging, or checking-in), we may collect your precise location. By using these location-based Services, you authorize us to locate your device and to record, compile, and display your location. We do not share precise location information or personal information with third parties for their independent use without your consent. You may opt-out of providing precise location information at any time by adjusting the settings on your device.
