Your privacy in Skadi application and Mobile Angels' geo-service
We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the privacy policies of third party services, when you interact with them. Mobile Angels is not in control or responsible for the contents and features of those services.
Please understand that the features of the Service may depend on how you access the Service. Different device models and software versions of the Service may offer different features.
What information do we collect?
We collect the following categories of information:
Registration and contact details
Some features may require the use of Skadi account, for example when you want to synchronise your collections. You may continue to use the other features of the Service without signing in.
When you are logged in with your Skadi account, we will try to automatically synchronize your recent activites and your collections in association with your Skadi account.
From time to time we will release promotional discounts. In order to benefit from these promotions our customers may have to provide some additional information which may include name, email address, location, phone number or any other relevant data. We do not share this information with any third parties. We will only contact the customer in direct relation to the promotion entered, unless otherwise specified i.e. the customer agrees to newsletter updates from Mobile Angels
Location data and place information
Our Service makes use of information about your actual location ("Location Data") and information about places ("Place Information"). Location Data reveals where you currently are or where you have been. Location Data is based on available positioning methods, such as Assisted GPS. In many device models the user interface of the Service identifies the use of positioning with an icon. Place Information is general information pertaining to particular geographical location (e.g. city or a location of a restaurant) that you may have provided to us, for example your collections.
Unless otherwise stated, we use random identifiers in connection with your Location Data that do not identify you personally.
When you start to use the Service application, the application activates your selected positioning methods to retrieve your current location.
The Service may send your Location Data to Mobile Angels when you use location enabled features of the Service online, such as ask information about nearby services or offerings, use search features, as well as when the Service asks for new maps for new areas you have navigated into. As further defined below, Location Data may be collected when you use the traffic feature for service improvement purposes without identifying you personally. Place Information may be sent to Mobile Angels for example when you synchronise your collections.
Information about Service usage
You may participate to improving our services. See Privacy in Skadi Improvement Programm for more details.
When you use the traffic features of the Service, Location Data, speed, direction and timestamp is sent from your device to Mobile Angels to detect traffic jams, traffic patterns, changed road conditions and other such conditions so that we can provide you with better service. This information is analysed to distinguish independent routes and traffic patterns and contains an identifier, which is persistent for the duration of the route. This information is sent to us when you use the Service online after which it is deleted from your device. We do not use this data to identify you personally or combine this information with your Skadi account.
Technical information and your transactions
When you use the Service online, certain technical information such as the type of your mobile device, unique device or network service provider identifiers, internet protocol address, time zone, technical details of your client as well as your transactions with Skadi may be automatically collected by Mobile Angels.
Our uses of your data
Non-personal use of Location Data or Place Information
We do not associate your Location Data or Place Information with your other personally identifiable information, such as Skadi account, unless you have asked us to do so. For example, if you save a place to your collection, we do not combine this information with your Location Data unless you have asked us to do so. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent associating your Location Data with other personally identifiable information without your permission.
Provision of the Services
We may also use the information to provide you with more improved search and recommendations to better assist you to find a place you may like.
Location based advertising

The Service offers a variety of choices to allow you to control how your Location Data and other information are collected.
You may use the Service in offline or online mode. No Location Data or other information is sent to Mobile Angels if you only use the Service in offline mode. Note, that your device may nevertheless continue to store and have already stored information which may be sent to Mobile Angels as defined earlier in this document and if you participate to Skadi Improvement Program or have enabled traffic feature.

The Service may allow you to share your Location Data or Place Information with a social network or directly with your friends. The Service also includes content from and links to third party sites and services. When you interact with these sites and services, you may provide your current location to them.

- where there is a legal requirement to do so.
We advise you to use appropriate consideration when you name your collections. For example, if you do not want all the users of the Service to know the location of your home, do not name the location of your home "home" and share it with all users.
