Our mobile applications (“Apps” or “App” or “Applications”) may access real-time location-based information (i.e. GPS). Our software helps you find and secure your phone if it is lost or stolen. You can locate your phone on a map using location information provided by your phone, activate a loud siren even if your volume is turned down so that you can find a phone lost nearby, lock your phone, or wipe your phone. These features and settings are controlled through our website. Our purpose in collecting this information is to provide you with the location of your phone when you request it. If you activate the locate feature, your browser will send location information in order to display a map of the location within your SecurityCoverage account webpage. When activating this feature, we track the phone’s location in order to provide an accurate location for you.
YOUR DEVICE INFORMATION FOR ANTI-VIRUS
We collect information about the applications on your device, in order to conduct scans and to download them. We also may collect information about how applications behave on your device (i.e. whether an application is sending premium-rate text messages that charge money to your phone bill) and the network services with which your applications communicate, in order to determine if any applications are behaving maliciously. Each time our Service performs a scan, we collect information that describes what files and applications are identified by the scan as potentially undesirable and your remediation choice (i.e. uninstall or ignore).
We offer remote access service to assist in diagnosing and resolving technical issues. This process allows our technicians to remotely access your computer or technology device to determine the problem and either repair it or provide advice on what options are available to fix the issue or optimize your network. By taking advantage of this Service, you are giving permission to a SecurityCoverage technician to log into your technology device, or view your network, which may contain Personal Information. Our technician will only search your technology device to determine the cause of the problem, and at your request, fix the problem. Our technician will attempt to limit their interaction with your files to a minimum. Remote access shall be granted for one-time, limited duration use. It is your responsibility to ensure all of your files, especially those containing personal information, are secure and backed up to prevent any type of data loss or corruption.
We track your activity using integrated analytics (including but not limited to monitoring traffic, usage, retention and conversions) if you’re using one of our SecurityCoverage mobile applications. The applications obtain the information you provide when you download and register the application.
Our analytics allow us to understand a variety of factors that measure our user’s traffic, retention, conversions and usage. For example:
- How you’re interacting with our apps;
- How, when and where our application is used;
- Increase application monetization and conversions.
Information collected through our integrated analytics is used to improve product roadmaps, increase application engagement and retention. We may also use the Personal Information you provided us to contact you from time to time to provide you with important information, required notices and marketing promotions.
To stop all collection of Personal Information by the application you may use the standard uninstall processes as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.
