  7. Location Information (geolocation) - Use of the SHAPTRU services requires a collection and possible storage of your general location information (i.e. your IP address), along with your route and delivery pick-up and drop-off information. Granting the SHAPTRU Services permission from your mobile device to access your location allows SHAPTRU to collect and/or store the precise location of your mobile device while the SHAPTRU Apps are running in the foreground or background of your device. A provision of this information is necessary in order to help select your delivery address; to provide recommendations on Stores/Merchants based upon your location; to provide more accurate deliveries of your orders; and also to improve the services and enhance your user experience. Through the settings on your device or when prompted by the SHATRU mobile Apps, you can choose whether or not to enable the location tracking feature. If you choose to disable this feature, it may hinder some use of the Services. In turn this may compromise the accuracy of deliveries as the delivery driver/s (independent contractor) will not receive precise location information from your device.
