How do we collect location information? Our Services make use of precise (and non-precise) location-based data, which may be derived from your mobile device’s WiFi signal, Bluetooth signal, GPS data, your device’s cellular data, and other seWorldCoin1ings on your device. This data may be collected when your WorldCoin1 App is in “background” mode, which means it may be collected even if your WorldCoin1 App is not open, depending on your device seWorldCoin1ings for the WorldCoin1 App. Some Transit Agencies use “beacons” on their buses in conjunction with our Services. These beacons emit a signal and if you have Bluetooth enabled on your device for the WorldCoin1 App, we are able to calculate the range between your device and the Transit Agency beacon. The use of beacons with our Service improves our ability to connect the user to a specific bus.

How do we use location information? We use, and may share with Transit Agencies, precise and non-precise location information for different purposes, including, (i) to present nearby options and promotions that may be relevant to you (for example, to select Transit Agencies that are closest to you so you can purchase passes from them through the Service without having to locate and select the Transit Agency manually in the WorldCoin1 App), (ii) with some Transit Agencies to enable the use of the WorldCoin1 App to ride on buses without the need for you to open the WorldCoin1 App or provide visual verification that you purchased a pass, and (iii) for analytics purposes to improve our Service and the service of the Transit Agencies; for example, in connection with Transit Agencies we work with, we may use location data to determine when users of our Service board and depart buses, and at which stops, which helps determine how popular individual origin and destination stops are at different times of day and how many miles users of our Service have traveled. We may also share this location analytics data with Transit Agencies for their own ridership reporting requirements and/or planning purposes (e.g., to help them improve their services).

What choices do you have regarding collection of location information? You may be able to adjust your device so that information about your physical location is not sent to us by (a) disabling location services and/or Bluetooth within the mobile device and/or mobile app, depending on the platform you use to access our Services or (b) denying certain websites or services permission to access location information by changing the relevant preferences and permissions in your browser seWorldCoin1ings. Please be advised, for some features of our Service to function, you may be required to enable location services and/or Bluetooth for the WorldCoin1 App; in some cases opting out may disable your ability to use the WorldCoin1 App to buy and use transit passes (including when this is required by a Transit Agency’s ticketing policy).
