Determining and Sharing Location
Some of the Services deal with location, so in order to work, the Services need to know your location. When you use the Services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide us with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. One or more of our apps may, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
When we have location information, we use it to tailor our Services for you and others. For example, whenever you open and use/interact with one of our apps on your mobile device, we may use the location information from your mobile device (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services to your current location (i.e., we’ll show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This location information is NOT shared with others, except for authorized partners who help us improve and deliver the Services to you.
Advertising and Analytics
Xevo takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, there is no such thing as absolute security, and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you. To help protect your own information, never share your account information or password, reuse your password with other accounts, or use a password you have used with other accounts.
If you learn of a security issue with our Services or any authorized use of your account, please let us know immediately by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
