Back Seat Navigator iOS Privacy Policy


Back Seat Navigator does not collect or store personally identifying information. When you first install and launch the app, you will be asked to allow Back Seat Navigator to access your location while using the app and while the app is in the background.  This is so driving directions can occur, even if the app is closed. Clicking the allow button enables the app to send your latitude and longitude to the Mapbox servers each time a user searches for an address or the navigation functionality has begun. None of the information sent to the Mapbox servers is personally identifiable.

The ads displayed in the app may transmit ad clicks and page views. This information helps the app make money and allows Night Cat Productions LLC to offer the app for free. The information is anonymous and cannot be used to identify Back Seat Navigator users.  

Back Seat Navigator also monetizes using X-Mode Social, Inc.  X-Mode Social, Inc. may collect and pass to third parties precise location information (such as your device GPS coordinates) or relative location information (from WiFi signals or Bluetooth Low Energy devices in your proximity, for example) linked to your mobile device or advertising identifiers and may do when you use the app or when the app runs in the background on your device.  That information may be used by third parties to customize ads in this app or in other apps. The information may also be used for market or other research regarding aggregated traffic patterns. X-Mode automatically collects usage information that does not identify an individual user (“Usage Data”). For example, when you download and use the Services on a mobile device, X-Mode may automatically collect information such as your device type, operating system version and type, certain device settings, device time zone, device carrier, current IP address, and platform-specific advertising identifiers. X-Mode uses this information to enhance the services we offer, provide targeted advertising, and to help us understand how people use the Services. Aggregated device data, including location and usage data, is also measured for the purposes of targeted advertising and market research by X-Mode Social, Inc. For further information, please see X-Mode’s Privacy Policy.  If you do not want this information to be linked to your device, you may go to your device settings and opt out of interest-based or personalized advertising (Settings → General → Privacy → Advertising → Limit Ad-Tracking).  You may also prevent location from being collected by this or other apps through your location permission settings.

Finally, Back Seat Navigator uses Apple Analytics to collect statistics on app crashes and usage. This information helps Night Cat Productions fix issues as they happen. This data is collected anonymously and cannot be used to identify users.
