Publicly Available Information: When you use the Services, certain information is public, such as your public user profile information and lists of friends and/or followers. We may also share or disclose aggregated and anonymous data, such as de-identified location data, to third parties, including users you may follow and users of our Service, for analytical or other purposes.
Determining your location.
The Services deal with location, so in order to work, the Services need to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with our apps on your mobile device we use the location information from your mobile device (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services experience to your current location (i.e., we'll show you a list of nearby locations). This information is NOT shared in a form that is identified with you with others unless you are using a service that they offer. Also, the Services use your mobile device's ‘background location to provide the Services, including to send you notifications of hangouts/friends/plans/deals etc. near you. If you have ‘background location turned on, the Castemo app will, from time to time, tell us about your device's location even if you are not directly interacting with the application. The user can enable/disable location services from their mobile device and use the approximate Geo location or Static Location service offered by Castemo App to select any location from a set of predefined locations.
Sharing Location with the Castemo app.
Your real-time location is not shared with anyone on the Castemo app in a form that identifies you. Some content, like plans, are time stamped and other users could use that information to infer when you were at a place even though plans can be posted when you aren't at the place you are leaving a tip about.
Your location data is ONLY shared when you reach a hangout that was planned on castemo, your friends who are part of the hangout may receive a “Reached” notification if your location is available.
Your Location History
We store your location history to provide you better quality places and deals. This information is treated as private under any and all circumstances and is NEVER shared. The user can enable/disable location services from their mobile device and use the approximate Geo location or Static Location service offered by Castemo App to select any location from a set of predefined locations
