Use of location data
Customers may optionally agree to allow the app to access their location whilst the app is running; which is used to find the delivery options in their area.
Delivery drivers may allow the app to access the location in the background. We limit our access, collection, use and sharing of location data acquired through the app to purposes directly related to providing and improving the features of the app. i.e., so that we can send you delivery invites at all times for deliveries close to your current location and for tracking you (a Swft delivery driver) whilst you are out on a delivery. This data is not used for advertising purposes.
As a Swft delivery driver, you do not need to sign in and out of the app or indicate your working times. For that reason, the app may not be running and you still want to be alerted for nearby deliveries that are available. To facilitate this, the app must be able to determine your location in the background.
The type of location data
The coordinates of your location in the form of longitude and latitude.
How the app accesses, collects, uses and shares location data.
The Android app uses Google location services to obtain your location and then transmits it to the Swft delivery servers where it is used for the above purposes. The iOS app uses Apple location services to obtain your location and then transmits it to the Swft delivery servers where it is used for the above purposes.
Sharing of location data
We do not share location data with any third parties except for law enforcement when we receive a valid request. We do not sell location data. All personal or sensitive user data including location data is handled securely, including transmitting it over secure cryptography. Permission to obtain location data is requested at runtime using Android permissions.
