We may get information about your location, phone and computer information using the mobile and computer applications where you choose to install our products. You will be prompted by standard requests to allow us access to this information when you use the Company’s applications.
Information Collected through the Device. In order to provide the automated parking guidance and payment service as well as live vehicle tracking and trip logging services, we have to access information about the users’ vehicle location, especially at the moments when it stops. The Device automatically sends geolocation information to the Company’s server via an encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) channel hosted by the network operator to be analyzed and securely stored. The geolocation information may be used to detect whether your vehicle is parked in a legal parking zone and for how long it stays parked there. Every Device has a unique identifier and only a private Internet Protocol (IP) address that is accessible by the Company’s server in the private network hosted by the network operator. The Company’s server and database may be hosted by a secure cloud provider, such as Amazon Web Services, to provide additional security of users’ data using the highest industry standards.
