We and our vendors will have no liability where the APP is hindered from operating.
Use of the APP or its features that require the use of mobile software may use a significant amount of power from the battery of any device that the mobile software is installed on. You may wish to limit your use of these or other services on your device to the times when they are necessary (e.g., you may want to turn off certain APP features when you are not driving, or you may want to turn off other applications and services when you are driving), or where possible, you might wish to keep your phone plugged into a power source. The APP will not work in ‘low power mode’ or the like, as important sensors are usually disabled by the device in that mode.
While the APP is running, the APP will have access to and collect information about your phone and driving activity that can be detected by the phone, including your location, the use and movement of the phone, the speed of your motor vehicle (including acceleration and braking behaviors), etc. (All such information will be Program Data as defined above).
The APP may collect this Program Data for any motor vehicle that you are in, even if you are not the driver. If you do not have permission from the driver to collect this Program Data, please be sure to log out of the APP (which will prevent it from functioning).
