UrbanLogiq Privacy Policy

Last updated November 2020

This Privacy Policy describes how UrbanLogiq Software, Inc. and our corporate subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “UrbanLogiq”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) collect, use, and share the personal information of people who visit any of UrbanLogiq’s websites or use the UrbanLogiq Platform (collectively, the “Services”)”, contact us, receive our communications, or attend our events.

Note: This Privacy Policy does not address data sources received from third-party providers (e.g. information about riders that a mobility provider, like a ride-sharing company, shares with us). However, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or privacy-sensitive data is not hosted on UrbanLogiq’s servers. All data received is de-identified and aggregated according to privacy thresholds at the source, and runs through further de-identification processes when it reaches UrbanLogiq. You can learn more about how we use third party data below or by contacting us.

‍Cookies & browser web storage

 If you block first-party cookies on www.home.urbanlogiq.ca/us certain features of the UrbanLogiq Platform will not work as intended. Specifically, you will be unable to log-in to the UrbanLogiq Platform so you will be unable to access your account information or any content you created on the Platform.

Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” or similar signals.  To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

Security practices

The security of your personal information is important to us.  We employ a number of organizational, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we collect.

International data transfers

The data for our Service is hosted entirely within the legal jurisdiction of our users and to the best of our ability we do not transfer this data internationally. We are unable to promise that data transit routes exclusively lie within customer regions, however. If UrbanLogiq needs to transmit data internationally we will verify this with the Customer.

Children

The Services are not directed to, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from, anyone under the age of 16. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian, we will delete it. We encourage parents with concerns to contact us.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended version on the Services and indicating the effective date of the amended version. We will announce any material changes to this Privacy Policy through Service or via email if we have your email address.
