We collect this Personal Information:
Depending on the specific features of the Services you are using and your device and account settings, we may collect location information from you. In some cases, this location information is critical to providing you with the Services, and in other cases, it may make other features more useful to you.
Generally, we anonymize location information and do not associate location information with your identity unless you elect to share your Personal Information with us. You may elect to share your Personal Information with us by either adjusting your user preferences in your account profile or by sending us an email stating your request at email@example.com.

We use different types of technologies to determine your location, with varying degrees of accuracy. The primary ways that we may collect your location information include your IP address, GNSS or similar navigation applications, sensor data from your device, and other tracking technologies.
The types of location information we collect from you will depend, in part, on your individual device and account settings. For example, whether the Services will collect location information only when you are actively using the Services or whether the Services will collect location information in the background as well will depend on your device settings.
We may also use your location information to tailor advertisements and third-party marketing based on your general location. Depending on your device settings, we may also be able to use your more precise location information to provide you with more targeted and useful advertisements and marketing. You may enable or disable this function by adjusting your user preferences in your account profile or by sending us an email stating your request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
