Ventura Transit System, INC (VTS) built the Tripspark as a Commercial app. This SERVICE is provided by VTS and is intended for use as is. This page is used to inform visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service.
Information Collection and Use
The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you.
We want to inform you that whenever you use our Service, in a case of an error in the app we collect data and information (through third party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.
The application requires permission to access your location in the background while in use. Location data is used for vehicle tracking, calculating trip mileage, and for same-day trip assignments. Location data is ONLY used to better enhance service delivery and is ONLY collected while a user is logged into the application. The location data is not used for advertising purposes. Furthermore, there is the ability in-app to disable location tracking during times a vehicle is not performing service delivery.
