We are committed to giving you transparency of our privacy practices and control over your data in connection with Shout Out Technologies' Services (as defined in Shout Out Technologies' Terms of Service).
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 show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This information is only shared with others based on the privacy settings of your account. Also, the Services use your mobile device’s ‘background location’ to provide the Services, including to send you notifications of messages, friends, businesses or events near you. If you have ‘background location’ turned on, Shout Out Technologies apps will, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
Sharing Location with @You app - By default, location sharing is turned on and your location data, is shared with your favorite friends and is updated from time to time using your background location. You can also enable different levels of location sharing by using the Privacy settings of the application.
