It Is part of our mission and also the required result of the use of the platform to focus on
safety and increase security. It’s important to us that you feel comfortable and trust us with

Information we collect
We collect the minimum information required to achieve the purposes set out in this Policy (see
below), and you have the ability to limit such collection, as specified below under “Your Choices”:
(a) Registration and Account Information: In order to use our Services you need to connect to a
passenger. In order to do this securely we need to give us very basic personal information(e.g.,
name, email, p hone number) on the sole purpose of making the registration process secure and
easy. That means your name and photo (if you choose to provide them) will be visible only to
system administrator and the system users that need to see in order to maintain a higher security
level. When you install the App, you’ll also be asked to allow us access to your mobile device’s
contacts. NO copy of the phone numbers or names of your contacts will becollected NEITHER stored
on our servers. We only need a Unique ID of your device in order for us to be able to connect you
to our systems. To get that Unique ID we need the “device contacts” permission.
(b) Activity Information: While using the SchoolBusNet services, we will check but not keep, your
data connection status, whether you have received a push notification or need an SMS message
instead. No one can see that information. The result of the check is registered as SMS might have
been sent instead of the push notification. This check is very important in order to maintain a
high level of service.
(c) Additional Information: We may also check but never keep your GPS location data – you
can choose whether to allow this by changing your geolocation tracking settings. This has the
sole purpose of displaying your location on the map in relation to the Bus stop or the position
of the bus.
Uses and Retention
The information we collect from you ensures you can use the SchoolBusNet Service and can
be contacted from school administration. Your information is retained for as long as you use
