The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the information we collect, how we use and share that information, and the ways in which you can control how we use and share that. Information We Receive or Collect.
Information We Receive or Collect From You Directly
Registration Data: When you purchase our devices/services/FleetWatcher, we ask you to provide certain information, which includes your name, email address, phone number, address, and other contact information (the "Registration Data"), and we provide a temporary password for an administrator account.

EarthWave receives data from you whenever you provide us with any of this type of information.
User Activity: When you use the Service, we keep track of your activity, which may include the pages you use, how you interact with the site, and what you type into the fields.
Technical Information: As is true of many websites and mobile and tablet applications, EarthWave may collect certain non-personally identifiable technical information through the use of log files and servers.

FleetWatcher Driver App - Location Information and Privacy
The FleetWatcher Driver App is available for Android and iOS on the Google Play and Apple App stores for download and installation. The FleetWatcher Driver App provides FleetWatcher customers with Driver and Equipment assignment support as well as Driver Safety Reporting. The FleetWatcher Driver App can also work in place of a classic FleetWatcher “black box” GPS-device (App-as-a-Device mode) and provide detailed Equipment location-information.
The FleetWatcher Driver App transmits the user’s location information when indicating that he/she has started driving by tapping the Start Driving button, and when indicating that he/she has stopped driving by tapping the Stop Driving button. In other words, the app logs where the user was when he/she starts working and stops working. In addition, when the FleetWatcher Driver App is used in place of a classic FleetWatcher “black box” GPS- device (App-as-a-Device mode), it will also transmit the user’s location periodically while in Driving mode (the time between tapping Start Driving and Stop Driving).
The FleetWatcher Driver App transmits the user’s location information to the FleetWatcher data center using a HTTPS-Connected Web Service (the same type of connection used by secure applications like banking and healthcare apps). This information is stored in the FleetWatcher database and is accessible only to the FleetWatcher customer, and to authorized FleetWatcher personnel..
Purpose-Built GPS Tracker Devices - Location Information and Privacy
FleetWatcher customers purchase or lease Purpose-Built GPS Tracker "Black Box" devices that are typically installed in or on equipment they own, operate, manage, lease, or control. These devices periodically transmit the location of the devices along with other relevant telemetry such as acceleration events, speed, vehicle-ignition-status, fuel-use, fuel-levels, and engine-temperatures.
EarthWave Technologies uses GPS Tracker Devices provided by multiple manufacturers. Information transmitted from those devices is delivered to FleetWatcher through a variety of secure channels including IPSec VPN Tunnels and HTTPS-encrypted Web Services. Once received, this information is stored in the FleetWatcher database and is accessible only to the FleetWatcher customer, and to authorized FleetWatcher personnel.
Information We Receive or Collect From Third Parties
