How We Use Email
When you provide us your email address, we will email you as necessary to process your order, confirm your user name and that you established a password, confirm product registration, respond to a request, or provide customer service. For example, after you place an order at SpotOn you will receive an email order confirmation and, in most cases, an email with package tracking information.
We may also send promotional emails about products, training tips, unique ways to use the SpotOn Virtual Smart Fence™ system, other user experiences, maps for public spaces, special offers, services or events we believe may be of interest to you. It is our intent to send promotional emails to only those who wish to receive them. We provide a means to unsubscribe in each email.
When registering the product, you must create an account and thereafter maintain a valid and active email address. We use your provided email as your account name. Information regarding your account will go to your designated email. We will never send a password or password change without your request.
We may also send email notifications regarding the status of the Service to those who have registered their email address. If you chose to no longer receive status notifications to your email, you have the opportunity to delete the email notification in the account settings.
When you connect your device to cell phone service, the internet or visit our website, we may automatically receive certain information about your device and your use of it, including serial number, firmware version, log files, settings, durations, error rates, maps you have created and stored, whether your dog is inside or out of the containment area, your dog’s location if out of containment, and other similar usage information.

As part of our Product and Services we gather and use location information. Information regarding the location of the product is used when using our Services. This location information provides you the ability to know where your pet is located through a notification sent or a query on the Site or Application. When locating your pet on the Mobile Application, your hardware location information is used to provide information of your location relative to your pet’s location. If you chose to not use Location Services, you cannot Track your Pet or obtain your pet’s location. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you.
Use of Apps
When you download and use apps, we and our service providers may track and collect app usage data, such as the date and time the app on your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to the app based on your device serial number. OPS uses a third-party service provider to collect analytical information related to the use of its mobile app, such as device state information, device hardware and OS information, as well as information relating to how an app functions. This information is collected and stored in a way that does not personally identify any particular user. OPS retains all rights, title, ownership and other interests in and to this data and uses this data to improve the quality and functionality of its Service and otherwise as permitted by applicable law.

We use the latest technology and processes for protection of your information. We use encryption whenever we receive or transmit information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, OPS cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. When you communicate with OPS electronically or otherwise submit your personal information, your communication is not necessarily secure and is subject to all of the risks of communication, including unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors that may compromise the security of Personal Information at any time.
