As a pioneer in location technology, we believe that it is our duty and responsibility to set best practices related to data privacy and ethics. The data we collect powers our location platform and is shared with partners via analytics, audiences, data solutions, measurement, and developer tools.
We know that location data is some of the most sensitive data out there. That’s why consumers must be in control.
We believe mobile apps that want to collect location data need to ask permission from consumers in plain English.
Consent should not be buried within terms and conditions that only a few people read. Alerts should be clear and identify use cases.
Companies should be required to apply privacy-protecting measures to data uses. At 5BestINcity, we do everything we can to ensure that neither data science nor our products disadvantage nor allow for the discrimination of consumers. We run important decisions through our Product Council, which includes members of our legal and privacy teams, and our contracts prohibit customers from using location data that would violate laws prohibiting discrimination or use in connection with making decisions about ineligibility for employment, credit, housing, health care treatment, or insurance. We believe data is a privilege and we act accordingly.
We hold ourselves and our partners to a high standard, but we cannot speak for the entire industry. We are advocates for regulation that will protect people from unethical, unfair or opaque practices. We believe location technology can be a tool to serve the greater good—but regulation needs to help raise the bar and protect consumer rights.
