Using Mobile Phones and Tablet apps
While using our app, the information is collected in the same way and for the same purposes as we do when you use this Website.
In addition, we also use some other information that is collected automatically when you use our Mobile Apps. Specifically:
We collect information about Mobile App functionality that you access and use. This allows identification of those areas of the Mobile App that are of interest to our customers. The information we collect for this purpose restricts us to identify you directly.
When you use a Mobile App, you can choose to allow access to your current location using GPS or similar technologies, in order to identify nearby hotels, airports, or other service providers. If you choose to allow access, this location data may be collected as a part of search requests logged by our servers. You can turn off access to your location at any time through your phone settings menu.
In the event the Mobile App crashes or hangs, it will send us error-reporting information. In this way we can investigate the error for stability of the Mobile App. As part of these error reports, the Mobile App sends us information about the mobile device type and version, the UID, the time the error occurred, the feature being used and the state of the application when the error occurred. This information is not used for any purpose other than investigating and remedying the error.
You can always control what information you want to receive from the Mobile App. You can do the same by modifying the settings of the Mobile App, in its setting’s menu and by changing the settings of your mobile device. Alternatively, you can remove the Mobile App from your mobile device entirely and access our services through our Website alone.
