Track24 is a provider of services that are intended to increase the safety of our customers, their users, and in some cases, indirectly, the safety of members of the communities in which our users operate. This means that we often need to collect, securely store, and process personal data to help our customers identify, locate and contact individual users.
This policy describes what personal data we collect and how we use it, so that our customers and users can make informed decisions about using our services.
It encompasses all the services provided by us including our website track24.com, our web applications, mobile applications and sensors. These services are collectively referred to as our platform.
When we refer to customers, we mean entities who set up accounts on our platform. This includes people with roles such as a monitoring team or account administrator.
When we refer to users, we mean people whose data is collected and processed in our platform, and monitored by our customers. This includes people with roles such as travellers, passengers and drivers who typically may make use of hardware tokens, mobile applications, or have profile pages on web applications.
Minimum data policy
We will gather the minimum amount of personal data that is needed to provide our services, and we retain it for no longer than is required.
Use of third parties
We make use of third parties to help provide our services which means that some personal data, including location information or contact details, maybe transferred to them for processing and storage. We select them on the basis that they meet or exceed our information security policies and privacy practices.
Specifically, we make use of the the Mapbox software development kit on our mobile applications. After performing anonymisation, Mapbox makes use of your mobile location data to improve OpenStreetMap data and derive aggregate measures such as road traffic conditions. You can opt out of sharing your telemetry in your Settings.
Use of location data
We collect user location data and associated timestamps in order to help our customers answer questions such as ‘What is their last known location?’, ‘Where do they intend to travel?’, ‘What route will they take?’. The collection of this location data is intended to facilitate distance comparisons with places and regions that may be typically classified by our customers as safe or unsafe.
When supporting our customers, we may need to access the location data of users, and will do so only with our customers’ permission.
For drivers, we may continuously collect location and speed data in order to calculate measures such as scores that quantify the risk exposure of these users.
Use of contact information
We collect contact information in order to communicate with and support our customers.
When we contact you, we may use technologies which allow us to understand if you received, opened and interacted with a message. We will provide opt out mechanisms for this form of interaction.
We also collect the contact information of users in order to facilitate two-way communications between customers and their users.
User privacy principles
We use the following principles to resolve any potential differences that might arise between our users and customers over the amount of personal data that is collected:
- User control: Wherever possible, we grant meaningful controls to users to help them limit the amount of personal data they share.
- Simplicity: We design our products to be as simple as possible so that privacy impacts are not hidden by complex implementation.
- Transparency: We are transparent to the user about which personal data is collected and do not build out covert or hidden features.
- Inform and educate: We inform and educate our users about our products and give them meaningful choices about how to use them.
- Build trust: We design and build products that give attention to building trust between us, our customers and their users.
- Provide feedback and explanations: We provide feedback about potential privacy impacts, such as notifications, and we provide explanations for any measures we calculate such as scores relating to user activities.
Children under thirteen
Our services are not intended for use by children under the age of thirteen. If we become aware that a child under the age of thirteen is using our services, we will disclose this to our customers’ administrator and seek to cancel the account of the child.
