HOW YOU ACCEPT THIS POLICY
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY
In order to provide you with high-quality services and verify your identity, we collect, store, and process various types of information when you visit or use the Service.
As a Visitor
We may collect various types of anonymous information about visitors to the Service, such as device-related information (e.g., device, browser, and IP address) and server log information (e.g., date and time of your visit). We use this information to better understand our visitors and to enhance your experience on CrowdSpy.
As a User
When you sign up, we will also collect certain personal information as part of your user profile such as your name and location (longitude, latitude).
CrowdSpy enables you to find and to be found by your friends. To do that, CrowdSpy will collect your GPS position at fifteen minute intervals, so long as the Service is active. The Service will only be inactive if it is exited completely, merely closing the CrowdSpy interface or switching to another screen does not necessarily inactivate the Service.
CrowdSpy may also collect information and provide statistics on the places that you have been to, such as restaurants and bars.
We may also collect various other types of personal information related to your use of CrowdSpy, such as communications made directly to us or our employees or agents, and any additional information you may provide if you contact us for technical support.

You are not required to accept any cookies; however if cookies are impaired or disabled, you may not be able to log in successfully and/or some features of CrowdSpy may not function properly.

These Analytics Tools collect information such as how often you visit the site, what pages you visit when you visit the site, and what other sites you used prior to coming to the site.
As of right now, we only use the information we get from Analytics Tools to improve the Service and do not combine the information collected through the use of New Relic with personally identifiable information. However, we reserve the right to do so in the future.
