Our Policy Concerning Children
Our primary purpose in collecting information from you is to provide you and our other End Users with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We only collect information about you that we consider to be necessary for providing services and features that optimize your user experience and to make it safer and easier. We may collect different information from or about you depending on the manner in which you use the Application.
Personally Identifiable Information: Stroller Patrol may collect and process information that could be directly associated with you without the aid of additional information, such as your full name, company name where applicable, user name and password, phone number, email address, billing or mailing address, or credit card information (“Personally Identifiable Information,” or “PII”). In addition, information that you submit, or that we collect, that is not Personally Identifiable Information but is necessary for the proper functioning of our Application is termed Demographic and Usage Information (see below), which is generally non-identifying, but associated with you as a specific and identifiable person, may become PII. You always have the option not to provide information by choosing not to use the Application or by not using the particular feature of the Application through or for which the information is being collected.
Mobile Analytics. Stroller Patrol may, according to the terms of our relationship with the wireless carrier and your privacy settings, collect certain information about End Users and their mobile devices when the Application is accessed through End Users’ mobile or other Internet connected devices. Stroller Patrol does not ask for, access, or track any precise location-based information. We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Application on End Users’ mobile or other Internet connected devices, which may record data relating to usage, performance, and download and will be treated like Demographic and Usage Data (discussed below).
Location Information. The Application collects real-time information about the location of your mobile device. The Application collects current location information from users using GPS tracking technologies when the “track” function is enabled on the Application.
How We Use the Information We Collect
Stroller Patrol uses the information it collects for a number of purposes. We may use it to respond to End Users’ inquiries and otherwise correspond with End Users, to process transactions that End Users request, to maintain User accounts, to preserve the security and integrity of the Application, to conduct market research or surveys, and to administrate, review, and/or improve the content of the Application. We may also use the information to communicate with End Users about other services that we think may be of interest.
Stroller Patrol provides to parent/guardian End Users current location information of caregiver End Users. To avoid being tracked on off-duty hours, caregiver End Users must disable the “track” function to avoid inadvertent disclosure of location information.
Stroller Patrol may use and share non-PII we collect with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Application or applications of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine non-PII we collect with additional non-PII collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated, non-personal information, or personal information in hashed, non-human readable form, with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors. For more information regarding your choices about how third parties collect information about you on our Application see the section titled Do-Not-Track Procedures below.
Except as stated above, Stroller Patrol may disclose any of your information, which in some cases includes PII, in the following situations:
• With your consent. Stroller Patrol may transmit your PII to a third party when you give us express permission to do so. For example, this may occur when we track an End User’s current location if he or she does not disable that function inside the Application.
• In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business; a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale; or in the event of bankruptcy. If another company acquires Stroller Patrol, that company will take on all responsibility for the information we collect, including PII, and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may implement its own policies with respect to your information.
Please be aware that all of the information that you disclose or content that you post in your user profile, forum posts, comments, or other public portions of the Application becomes public information. Because this information is publicly available, we cannot control how others treat it so we ask all End Users to exercise care in deciding what information they chose to share. If you terminate your Stroller Patrol account, we may retain your personal information for administrative purposes but will not display it publicly or share it in any other way.
We will retain your data for a period of up to three (3) months (or the maximum time required by law) after your account has been cancelled or suspended. After this time, the information will be permanently removed from our servers and no one will be able to access it. Your personal information such as your email, name, type of account you had, and payment history will remain on file for a period of up to ten (10) years, or the maximum time required by law, to comply with government regulations.
Access to Your Information
Stroller Patrol will provide each End User with access to PII that it provides to Stroller Patrol for as long as we maintain that information in a readily accessible format, and will work with End Users to correct any error in their respective PII. If you wish to access or correct any PII that you have submitted through the Application, or to have Stroller Patrol completely remove your PII from our systems, please send an email with your specific request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, note that registered End Users may change visibility of their respective personal information throughout the Application by editing their personal profiles.
End Users who provide their email addresses to Stroller Patrol will always have the opportunity to opt out of receiving email newsletters and promotions through the unsubscribe link in the email communications, by logging into and changing the preferences for their user account, or sending us an email with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line to email@example.com.
Securing Your Information
Stroller Patrol takes a range of security measures designed to protect your personal information and keep it confidential (unless it is non-confidential by nature, for example, publicly-available information) and free from any unauthorized alteration. However, the Internet by its nature is not a secure environment and the nature of security risks is constantly evolving, as are the technical and organizational industry standards relating to management of those risks. Therefore, the complete security of any personal information collected, stored, or used by Stroller Patrol cannot be guaranteed. In the unlikely event that an unauthorized third-party compromises Stroller Patrol’s security measures, Stroller Patrol will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorized third party’s ability to view, use, or disseminate such information.

Be advised that third parties are free to collect any information that you volunteer to Stroller Patrol that is visible to the public.
