Application of this policy
What is personal information
Location Information: With your consent, we may collect two kinds of location information through your use of the services on your mobile phone or device. To identify stores near you and to appropriately enable the services, we may gather location information through your mobile phone or device’s geolocation, GPS, or similar capabilities. Furthermore, as part of the services, we may collect information about your location within participating stores through your mobile phone or device’s Bluetooth or similar capabilities in combination with technology implemented by and with our retail partners. We refer to the location information collected through your mobile device’s applicable geolocation, GPS, Bluetooth or similar capabilities simply as “Location Information.” We will only gather these kinds of Location Information if you agree to share them with us by opting-in to the services (either during your initial app download, login or later) to receive the services and by enabling these capabilities on your mobile device. Once you have opted-in to receive the services and consented to our gathering of Location Information, the Rover Apps and services will continue to collect Location Information until you log off (they will gather Location Information if they are running in the background) or use your phone’s or other device’s setting to disable your mobile device’s applicable geolocation, GPS, Bluetooth or similar capabilities for the Rover Apps or services. We treat Location Information as personal information.
