Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last modified on July 13, 2016.

Betterways (“Betterways,” “we,” or “us”) are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and protection of information that is collected through our mobile app and our website (collectively, our “Service”), as well as your choices regarding the collection and use of information. Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Use.

1. How We Collect and Use Information

We collect the following types of information about you:

Information we collect from you directly:

Registration and Profile Information.
When you create an account, we may collect your personal information such as your username, first and last name, email address, mobile phone number and a photo, if you chose to have a photo associated with your account. If you want to add a captain or driver to your account, we collect the captain or driver’s name, email address, and mobile phone number. We may also collect billing information when you sign up for a paid service.

Data collected through use of the Service.
After you set up your account, we may ask for other profile and demographic information, such as personal information, and nickname.

Geolocation.
We collect your unique user identifier and your location through GPS, WiFi, or wireless network triangulation in order to obtain your location for the purposes of providing our Service. We collect the location to provide your location information to your team captain. If you “off duty”, never join a team, or leave a team, we will not share your location with the team captain; however, while you are logged in to your account, we will continue to collect your location information in order to provide the Service (for example, to provide you your drive score).
We maintain location information only so long as is reasonable to provide the Service and then delete location data tied to your personal information. We may maintain de-identified location data for a longer period of time in order to analyze aggregate trends and metrics. If you want to opt-out of the collection of your location data, please adjust your settings in your mobile device to limit the app's access to your location data.

Driving Event Data.
We collect, and may use a third party to collect, sensory and motion data from your smartphone or mobile device, including information from the gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and Bluetooth, in order to calculate and detect driving events such as speeding, hard braking, crash detection and other events. We maintain sensory and motion data as long as is reasonable to provide the Service and then delete or anonymize this data. If you want to opt-out of the collection of your sensory and motion, please adjust your settings in your mobile device to limit the app’s access to your sensory and motion data.

Messages and User Content.
We collect information when you message other team members or your captain through use of the service. We may also retain any messages you send to us. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service and to communicate directly with you, such as to send you alerts. You can control your receipt of email and text alerts by adjusting your settings in your mobile device. We may also send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, joining a team notification, order confirmations, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt-out of Service-related e-mails.
