Location Information

Depending on the Tauseel services that you use, and your app settings or device permissions, we may collect your precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS, IP address and WiFi.

  • If you are a driver or delivery partner, Tauseel collects location information when the Tauseel app is running in the foreground or background of your device.

In certain regions, Tauseel also collects this information when the Tauseel app is running in the background of your device if this collection is enabled through your app settings or device permissions.

  • Riders and delivery recipients may use the Tauseel app without enabling Tauseel to collect their location information. However, this may affect the functionality available on your Tauseel app. For example, if you do not enable Tauseel to collect your location information, you will have to manually enter your pickup address.
