GLOBEKEEPER Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last modified on April 16, 2021.


GlobeKeeper, Inc ("GlobeKeeper", "we", "our", or "us") is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

GlobeKeeper operates a service that allows you to communicate to and share your location with other users in your organization (your "Organization" or "Company"), which we make available through our apps and our website (the "Service").

This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and protection of information that is collected through our Service, as well as your choices regarding the collection and use of information.

Our Service is available in many different countries, which may have different standards and requirements in respect of the information we provide in the Privacy Policy and how we use personal information.

This Privacy Policy is therefore made up of two parts: Part 1 sets out information applicable to users outside the European Economic Area, Switzerland or the UK, and Part 2 sets out information applicable to users in the European Economic Area, Switzerland or the UK.

Before accessing or using our Service, please ensure that you have read and understood how we collect, store, use and disclose your personal information as described in the part of this Privacy Policy that is relevant to you.

Part 1 – Privacy Policy for non-EEA users

This Part 1 of our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect information that is collected through our Service from users outside the European Economic Area,  Switzerland or the UK, as well as your choices regarding the collection and use of information.

This Part 1 of the Privacy Policy was last modified on April 16, 2021.



Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Use.

We collect the following types of information about you:

Registration and Profile Information. When you create an account, we may collect your personal information such as your username, first and last name, email address, mobile phone number. We may collect a photo, if you or a Company member associate a photo with your account.

Data collected through use of the Service. After you set up your account, we may ask for other profile and demographic information, such as personal emergency instructions and information, and nickname. You may also customize your map by labeling locations, such as “work” and “home,” to make it easy to spot your important Places and to provide alerts when organization members leave and arrive.

Geolocation. We collect your location information through your device IP address, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS coordinates (e.g., latitude/longitude) available through your mobile device. We may also gather information about your location using other technologies and sensors which may provide us with information about nearby devices, WiFi access points and networks, and nearby cell towers. We collect and maintain location data to provide you the features and functionality of the Service.

Driving Event Data. We collect, and may use a third party partner to collect, sensory and motion data from your smartphone or mobile device, including information from the gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and Bluetooth, in order to calculate and detect driving events such as speeding, hard braking, crash detection and other events. Your mobile device provider may refer to this information as “Motion and Fitness” data (description may vary according to device and platform).

Messages and User Content. We collect information when you message other members of your Organization through use of the service. We may also retain any messages you send to us.

We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service and to communicate directly with you, such as to send you alerts on the movements of your Organization members, crime alerts in your neighborhood, etc.

Social Media. When you interact with our site through various social media, such as when you Like us on Facebook or post a comment to our Facebook page, we may receive information from the social network such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to GlobeKeeper’s website or Service.

Information from third-party services. We collect information from third party services that you connect to your GlobeKeeper account. For example, if you link your GlobeKeeper account to a voice assistant platform to enable interaction with our service through voice commands, such as through the GlobeKeeper Google Action (“Action”) available on Google Assistant-enabled devices, we will collect the queries and commands applicable to GlobeKeeper that you make through the Action or other voice assistant platforms.

Information we collect automatically through the use of technology. When you visit our website, use our mobile app, read our emails or otherwise engage with us, we and our business partners may automatically collect certain information about your computer or device through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, log files, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, or other tracking/recording tools (collectively, “tracking technologies”), and we may combine this information with other personal information we collect about you. We use these tracking technologies to collect usage and device information, such as:

We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service and to understand more about the demographics of our users. You can learn more about Google’s practices at, and view its currently available opt-out options at

You may also set your e-mail options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our e-mail and performed certain functions with it. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our Users, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.

Other instances in which we may share your information: We may also share your information for business purposes, as follows:

De-Identified Information:  We may also share your information with third parties in a form that does not reasonably identify you directly.  These third parties may use the de-identified information for any purpose.



GlobeKeeper cares about the security of your information and uses commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technological safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information we collect and that we share with our service providers. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.



You may, of course, decline to submit any personal information through the Service, in which case GlobeKeeper may not be able to provide its Services to you.

If you have any questions about reviewing or modifying your account information, you can contact us directly at
