  • Personal Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Services or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, email address, phone number, Twitter usernames, use information regarding your use of our Services, and browser information. We use various technologies to determine location, such as location services of the applicable operating system or browser and sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi- access points and cell towers. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Services, improving the content of the Services, and communicating with you about new features and enhancements.

We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the Services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Services, and to develop new tools for communal benefit.
  • Information Collected Automatically: When you use the Services, Bishop Peak Technology automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including your IP address, browser type, operating information, mobile carrier, device and application IDs, cookie information, and the page you requested.

  • Information We Receive from Third Parties: We receive and store information from third parties that interact in some way with the Services or that provide services to us in connection with the Services.

How is My Information Shared?

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone, though, as described more fully in this section below (under “Publicly Available Information, the PeakTransit API, and Apps”), your publicly-available information is available to third parties, and we may provide it to third parties, by license or otherwise. Bishop Peak Technology may share your Personal Information only as described in this Privacy Policy and related documents. Publicly Available Information, the PeakTransit API, and Apps: When you provide data to the Services with already public information, it may already be searchable by search engines and be shared with or disclosed to third parties, including through our API to a wide range of users and services.  We may also share or disclose aggregated and anonymous data, such as de-identified ridership data (that is, not tied to individual users), to third parties, including users of our API, for analytical or other purposes.

We do not guarantee that they will follow our rules or our Privacy Policy. We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Our agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us, and they provide a comparable level of protection for your Personal Information.

Determining and Sharing Location

Determining your location – Some of our Services deal with location, so in order to work, the Services need to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with our apps on your mobile device or go to one of our Sites, we use the location information from your mobile device or browser (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services experience to your current location (i.e., we’ll show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This information is NOT shared with others. Also, the Services use your mobile device’s ‘background location’ to provide the Services, including to send you notifications.

Sharing Location with the PeakTransit app (and its derivatives) – Your personally identifiable location data is never shared with anyone.

Sharing with Partners, in connection with business transfers, and for the protection of Bishop Peak Technology and others:

  • Our Partners: In addition to the data sharing described above, we enter into relationships with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses, provide services to you, sell items or provide promotions to you through the Services. In other situations, Bishop Peak Technology provides services, or sells items jointly with these businesses. You can easily recognize when one of these businesses is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business.
  • Business Transfers: If Bishop Peak Technology or substantially all of its assets are acquired, or in the unlikely event that Bishop Peak Technology goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
  • Protection of Bishop Peak Technology and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law, including laws outside your country of residence; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Bishop Peak Technology, our employees, our users, or others.
