1.1 Mobile Applications; Data Point Collection

Vinlocity has mobile ePod applications available for both iOS and Android. Seat license Subscriptions (each a “Mobile Client Subscription”) are required for each individual Driver (“seat”) allowed to use the iOS or Android Mobile Application to access Vinlocity during the Term (each a “Mobile Client”). The Customer may, from time to time during any Subscription Term, purchase additional seat licenses (prices outlined below) prorated for the remaining portion of the Subscription Term. Mobile Client Subscriptions may be reduced during Subscription renewal period. The Vinlocity Mobile Application allows VINs to be assigned to Drivers, track VIN locations via GPS, upload damages with photos, and electronic proof of delivery. The Vinlocity Mobile Application utilizes individual Driver location data collected from the mobile devices (e.g. latitude and longitude) to provide accurate pickup and delivery timestamps, location-specific meta data, and geo-fencing capabilities to the Vinlocity SaaS software and applicable third party systems. If Customer or a Mobile Client Subscription user has ‘background location’ services turned on, the Vinlocity Mobile Application will, from time to time, tell Vinlocity SaaS software and applicable third party systems about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application. This background tracking may be disabled by turning “background location” services off. While using the Vinlocity Mobile Application, location data is required to be collected. VehicHaul, LLC uses various technologies to determine location, including IP Address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide VehicHaul, LLC with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points, and cell towers.
