Location Based Information
To provide our location based services, we and our partners often share precise location data including the real time geographic location of your equipment’s tracking device. We may utilize GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP address along with satellite and cellular locations to determine your equipment’s approximate location. We obtain both approximate location data (network based) and precise location (GPS and network based).
We may collect usage data whenever you interact with any of our Sites including the webpages you visit, what you click on, your location, and when you performed certain actions. Additionally, the various Sites keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of each access, including originating IP addresses, internet service providers, the files viewed, operating system versions, and timestamps. (Note that we do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do not track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit our Sites or use our Services.)
We collect data from the device and application you use such as your IP address, operating system version, device type, system and performance information, and browser type.
