  • to improve the effectiveness and quality of service that our customers can expect from us in the future;

We will also analyse data about your use of our services from your location data to create profiles relating to you and for you. This means that we may make certain assumptions about what you may be interested in and use this, for example, to send you more tailored marketing communications, to present you with partners that we think you will prefer, or to let you know about special offers or products which we think you may be interested in. This activity is referred to as profiling. You have certain rights in relation to this type of processing. Please see section 10 “Your Rights” below for more information.

An example of such a business partner relationship would be a partner that we partner with for providing our services.

If you submit comments and feedback regarding the app, services, and our partners we may share such comments and feedback with our partners.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and other organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and prevention, and with law enforcement for crime prevention;

  • in order to enforce our contractual terms with you and any other agreement;

  • to protect the rights of Urlo, our partners or others, including to prevent fraud; and

9. Security

We adopt robust technologies and policies to ensure the personal information we hold about you is suitably protected.

We take steps to protect your information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.

Where you have chosen a password that allows you to access certain parts of the app, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will take steps to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the app; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
