If you choose to name your tracMo or add a photo of it, this information will also be associated with your account. The main purpose of tracMo is to help you to find or locate where your items are. Therefore, it’s necessary to collect information about your device (e.g. smartphone) location information and your tracMo device’s location information (the “Location Information”). By naming a location, you agree that tracMo can share the location name anonymously to other users. This information will be used to make it easier for you and other users to understand the Location Information.
