Location services terms

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

HONK provides an online platform whereby users can connect with vendors who offer roadside assistance and tow services. HONK provides Location Services that may enable your location to be determined by cellular mobile network or via Global Positioning Satellite service. Location Services are an integral part of HONK’s services, enabling HONK to know your current location in order to connect you with HONK customers requiring services in the vicinity of your service vehicle. Additionally, it gives HONK the ability to provide Customers with timely and accurate ETAs once you’ve been awarded a job. Enabling Location Services allows HONK to verify your location, deliver relevant job offers based on your location, and share your location as part of the Services we offer. HONK will request your permission to obtain your location via your mobile phone, so that Service can be provided. Permission is obtained via a double opt-in process as described below:

HONK may ask you for permission to send you, or an employee of yours, an initial text message via mobile device requesting that you opt-in for Location Services. HONK will only track your location if you opt-in by replying “YES” to those initial questions.

HONK shall retain this location data as part of the record of service for no more than 1 year.

HONK may periodically request your location when you are not in the process of providing Services to a Customer in order to try to connect nearby Customers with your Services through HONK.
