- Use Cases
This Privacy Shield Notice ("Notice") describes our standards and procedures for handling Personal Information transferred from the European Economic Area ("EEA") and Switzerland to the U.S. in accordance with Skyhook’s obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
How We May Obtain Personal Information
We may obtain and process Personal Information from the EEA and Switzerland in different capacities:
Skyhook commits to comply with the Principles with respect to all Personal Information received from the EEA and Switzerland in reliance on the Privacy Shield.
Privacy Shield Principles
Skyhook also provides users the ability to directly opt-out from Skyhook’s services as follows:
Location Information: For users who do not want any location data to be collected, the application, device, or operating system provides controls for disabling all location services. This choice may limit the functionality of the device or installed applications
Device ID: If you wish to opt out of the Skyhook’s use of your Device ID to assist our partners with identifying your demographic information and interest segments for purposes of providing you with targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. If you choose to opt out your Device ID(s), Skyhook will delete any collected data about this Device ID from Skyhook database, and quarantine the device ID so that Skyhook does not collect any data about this Device ID in the future or return or share any information about the Device ID to API or SDK requests. Skyhook also respects platform-level controls and restrictions, so that if you disable targeted advertising through controls offered by the application and/or through the iOS or Android “Limit Ad Tracking” or “Opt out of interest-based advertising” settings, we will abide fully by those settings. More information on how to access these settings is provided on the Skyhook opt out page, which can be accessed by clicking here. If a user chooses the “Limit Ad Tracking” or “Opt out of interest-based advertising” settings on iOS or Android, Skyhook will quarantine the device ID so that Skyhook does not collect any data about this device ID and will not return or share any information about the Device ID in response to API or SDK requests, instead returning an error code when the device ID has been opted out. Skyhook will also delete any encrypted device identified data from the opted-out user’s device.
MAC Addresses: If you wish to opt out of Skyhook’s use of your MAC address to provide location, you may opt-out by clicking here. If you choose to opt out, Skyhook will (if applicable) delete the positioned record for that MAC address from the Skyhook database and will blacklist that MAC address so that we will not process or use that MAC address information in the future.
This Notice may be amended consistent with the requirements of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. When we update this Notice, we will also revise the "Last Updated" date at the top of this document.
