Determining and Sharing Location
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 to your current location. The Services use your mobile device’s background location to provide the Services, including to send you notifications of tips/friends/interesting things etc. near you. If you have the app turned on in the background, the Bubbles app will, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
Sharing Location with Bubbles app - By default, sharing is turned on and your location data is shared with other users and is updated from time to time using your location.
The Services include several features that may allow you to share your information with others.
We may provide you with the ability to log into the Service using your existing social media accounts, such as Facebook. We do not control such social media services, your profiles on those services, modify your privacy settings on those services or establish rules about how your information on those services will be used. You and the social media service providers are in control of those issues, not Bubbles. You are encouraged to read all policies and information on the applicable social media services to learn more about how they handle your information before using any such features made available to you on the Service. We are not responsible for any acts or omissions by any social media service provider or your use of features that come from their platform.
The Service uses the mobile data from your device, including roaming data if they are turned on.
