Personal Information Collection
Personal Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Services or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your username, email address, Facebook username, avatar photo, location, vehicle, hobbies, notes, your website, and phone (used when sending information through the use of SMS) use information regarding your use of our Services, and browser information. We automatically receive your location when you use the Services. We use various technologies to determine location, such as location services of the applicable operating system or browser and sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi- access points and cell towers. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Services, improving the content of the Services, enabling you to share your location and moments with others, customizing the advertising and content you and your friends may see (including LiveTrips or third-party advertising or content), and communicating with you about specials and new features. Your Services account will be associated with your email and this account will be used for all our Services that you use. We may also draw upon your Personal Information in order to adapt the Services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Services, and to develop new tools for the community.
- People with access to your trip: For each individual trip, in its “Trip settings” you can choose who can see it based on 3 privacy levels:
- Only me: Your trip will not be publicly visible and only you can access it.
- Everyone: Your trip becomes publicly accessible on the internet, and potentially every individual in the world can see it.
- LiveTrips Staff access: Even if your trip privacy level is set to "Only me" or "Only my followers", on an occasional basis LiveTrips staff members may still access your trip data for research and testing purposes and to solve problems you might experience.
Consequences of disclosing information: People who can see your trip, can see all its details including your current location (as described in more detail), previous locations on this trip, name, email, profile photo, links to your and Facebook accounts, photos you post, stories you write, and which LiveTrips Services you use. Individuals reading this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in trips, comments, plans or tips or other content (location or otherwise) that you create in the Services.
Locations, Events, Businesses: One of the possible future purposes of the Services is to help users learn about destinations, events, and brands (for example, a city, places to sleep, places to see or things to do) that are relevant to them, and for these entities to provide information about themselves, their locations and events to users.
Publicly Available Information and Apps: When you use the Services, certain information is public, such as your public user profile information, public trips (including their texts, photos and other information related to the trip), travel stats, and may be searchable by search engines and be shared with or disclosed to third parties, to a wide range of users and services. We may also share or disclose aggregated and anonymous data, such as de-identified location data (that is, not tied to individual users), to third parties, including users you may follow, for analytical or other purposes.
Determining and Sharing Location
Determining your location - The Services deal with location, so in order to work, the Services need to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with our apps on your mobile device or go to one of our Sites, we use the location information from your mobile device or browser (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services experience to your current location (i.e., we’ll suggest you to add your current location). Depending on your privacy settings for this trip (see “Information Sharing” above), this information may be shared with others.
Sharing Location with the LiveTrips app - Your real-time location may be shared on the LiveTrips app. If you add a step, like or otherwise interact with a place, users may infer that you have been to that location or are at that location at this moment. All content,is time stamped and other users could use that information to infer when you were at a place even though stories can be posted when you aren’t at the place you are leaving a place.
Your Travel History - Every message you added using the Services is saved which allows you and (pending your privacy settings) everyone who has access to your trip, to look back at all the locations you have added since you created your Services account. You cannot delete individual messages from the trip page on our website or within the app. If for some reason you ever decide to delete your Services account, your entire messages history will be removed from our database.
The Services include several features that may allow you to share your information with others. Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Services, that information may be available to the wider Services community, or may be published on our Sites, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines.
