If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy.

Information Collection and Use

GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. is committed to protecting your privacy and developing features that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. Web Site and Mobile Apps and governs data collection and usage. By using the GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. website and Mobile Apps, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

The types of personal and other information we may collect about you are primarily from four sources: (a) information you provide; (b) information provided by your employer; (c) information collected via the App; and (d) information automatically collected. The legal bases for our processing of Personal Information are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing the Services and that the processing is carried out in our legitimate interests. We may also process Personal Information upon your consent, asking for it as appropriate.

For a better experience, while using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, including but not limited to Location, OS version, access times and user information. This information is used by GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. for the operation of the website and Mobile Apps, to maintain quality of the website and Mobile Apps, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. Website and Mobile Apps. The information that we request is will be retained by us and used as described in this privacy policy.

Employee Information

Your employer may give us information about you: (1) when creating a user profile for you in order to enable you to access the App under the Employer Agreement (whether on a trial or full basis) or to enable us to provide our Services. This information may include your name, company email address, company telephone number, job title, level of seniority, department, work start date, salary and primary office location; (2) otherwise in the course of your employer’s use of the App.

The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you.

GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. built the GPS on Guard Tracking as a Free app (restricted). This SERVICE is provided by GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. at no cost and is intended for use in conjunction with GPS on Guard Tracking Ltd. admin software.

Log Data

We want to inform you that whenever you use our Service, in a case of an error in the app we collect data and information (through third party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol ("IP") address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.

Information collected from App

Depending on your device, our App may request certain permissions that allow it to access your device data. By default, you must grant these permissions before the respective information can be accessed. Once the permission has been given, you can revoke it at any time, and it is your responsibility to monitor/adjust them in accordance with your preferences. In order to revoke these permissions, you may go to the device settings. Please note that the revoking of such permissions might impact the proper functioning of the App. If you grant any of the permissions listed below, your information may be collected by the App:

  1. Phone: This permission allows the App to open your phone app to make outbound calls using phone numbers stored within the App. A few examples would be to contact your company’s emergency number, the local emergency services number or contacts at any of the locations you are working at. There are no components in the App which permit us to listen in on, record or tracks calls being made. All call actions being made will appear on screen when your phone app is opened after selecting an option to make a call. Once you have signed out of the App, there are no functions used to prompt a call from your device.
  2. Location: This permission is used to grant the App access to transmit your device’s location, using Google’s location services, to the GPS on Guard Tracking server when you signed in and using the App. This is done to provide your employer with your location while you are working to ensure your safety. When you sign out of the App, all location transmissions are cut off and GPS on Guard Tracking will not be able to access your location.
  3. Camera: This permission is needed to allow the App to use your camera when taking pictures or video from within the App for tracking and/or reporting purposes or when the remote safety recording is triggered by your employer. Like the phone permission, the App will simply open your camera app so that you can take the picture to add to a report or record a video (watch mode). Once you have signed out of the App, there are no functions used to access your camera.
  4. Microphone: Almost identical to the camera permission, the microphone permission is may requested so that the App can record audio during a video recording. Your microphone cannot be accessed once you have signed out of the App.
  5. Storage: The App may request access to your device’s storage so that it can access the images and videos taken from within the App. There is also an option to upload images from your device instead of having to take the picture from within the App itself. This permission gives us the ability to access those images; we do not access any other data saved on your device. Like all other permissions the App requests, access to your device’s storage is not permitted once you have signed out of the app.
