What information does inMarket collect?
When you download or use a mobile application or website that uses our Service, we may automatically collect certain usage information from your device on a regular basis. Here are some examples of the types of usage information we may collect:
- Internet protocol address‚ device operating system, browser type‚ referring website, the pages viewed on the website or mobile application, and the name and version of the mobile application running on the device.
- Device location from GPS data. If your device settings allow the device to share location information with a mobile application that uses our Service, then we may collect GPS data from the application on your device. If you disable location in your device settings or disable location permissions to that application, that application will not send GPS location data to us.
- Device Bluetooth-related location and surroundings data. If your device settings have Bluetooth enabled, then we may be able to detect the Bluetooth devices such as beacons around your device and their signal strength. Many retailers and other public locations have installed such Bluetooth devices. If you disable Bluetooth and any Bluetooth scanning option in location settings in your device settings, your device will not send Bluetooth data to us.
- Device wifi-related location and surroundings data. If your device settings have wifi enabled, then we may be able to detect the wifi networks around your device and their signal strength. If you disable wifi and any wifi scanning option in location settings in your device settings, your device will not send wifi data to us.
