Information We Collect
When you use our RaceSafe mobile application, we collect the following information:
- Location Information: To ensure the safety and efficiency of racing events, we collect precise location data from your device. This includes monitoring your position, speed, and safety status during an event, even when the app is running in the background (e.g., if you switch apps or receive a phone call). This capability is critical for providing real-time safety monitoring and emergency response services throughout the event.
- Device and Usage Data: We collect information about your device, app usage, and network connectivity. This data helps us diagnose technical issues, optimize app performance, and ensure you have a seamless experience while using RaceSafe.
The collection of location information in the background is a vital component of our services, enabling us to maintain continuous monitoring of participants for safety purposes, regardless of the app’s active status on the screen.
