When you create a CARKU account, you may provide us with information that includes your user ID, email address (or phone number, based on the country located), password or other information for account verification. You might choose to provide us with additional information — like gender, birthday, professional information and other information on your profile page.

When you choose to upload your photos, videos or other content using CARKU Products and Services, including text content relating thereto, we may collect and store such content, including EXIF data relating to the photo or video.

Location information. When you activate CARKU hardware products, use the map function of our apps, synchronize your flight record, obtain UAS safety/regulatory notifications, share your content on Skypixel, or search for nearby flying spots, you may provide us with geolocation information. In order to provide your location, you may be required to enable certain features of your device (such as GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth) to identify your location through a variety of means, including GPS location, IP address, cell tower location, or detection by physical on-location Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sensors. If your location is collected through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sensors of your mobile device or other non-CARKU Products, please be aware that such sensors, and the associated data services, may be provided by a third party, which may access such information for the purpose of providing such data services to CARKU. You may provide your geolocation information to third-party map service providers to receive location-based services on CARKU Products. When you unlock the geofencing features embedded in CARKU Products and Services, you may provide us with the area code of your unlocked areas (“Authorization Zones”).
Device-Related and Flight-Related Information. When you activate CARKU products, request for after-sales service, unlock the geofencing features or upgrade the firmware, you may provide us with information about your CARKU device, including model and serial number. Our after-sales team may ask for your flight data to provide the service you requested.

Such information includes your IP address or device address, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use a Product or Service, hardware version, and operating system.

We work with third party service providers to provide payment facilitation, parcel transportation, application development, traffic monitoring or analysis, electronic messaging, and other services for us. We require these service providers to use or disclose the information they process on our behalf, only as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.
According to local laws and regulations, such as Remote Identification or other aviation regulations and requirements, your device-related information, product location, and remote controller (ground control station) location may be transmitted to and received by individuals, companies, or organizations determined by aviation regulations to be appropriate receivers of such information. Please refer to your local authorities for more information regarding what types of your information are subject to these requirements. Your CARKU aircraft device information, such as serial number, product location, remote controller (ground control station) location, and device model may be locally broadcast and received by CARKU’s AeroScope Remote Identification feature to promote flight safety near critical infrastructure, airports, special events, or to support the activities of law enforcement and security agencies. CARKU’s qualified AeroScope dealers are only authorized to sell AeroScope receivers to government agencies involved in public safety, security, or law enforcement, aviation safety researchers, or to owners and operators of critical facilities such as airports, power plants, and prisons.
We may preserve and disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, warrant or enforceable request.
We also reserve the right to preserve and disclose your information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to (i) take precautions against liability, (ii) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activities, (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (iv) protect the security or integrity of the CARKU Products and Services and any facilities or equipment used to make the CARKU Products and Services available, or (v) protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights, property, or safety of others.

If you withdraw your consent, we will apply your preferences going forward, and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before you withdrew your consent.
Note, however, that if you exercise your right to object or your rights of blocking, deletion or to be “forgotten” or if you decline to share certain information with us, or if you withdraw your consent to our processing of information about you, we may not be able to provide to you some, or any, of the features and functionality of CARKU Products and Services.

You may obtain a copy of the standard contractual clauses by contacting us at support@CARKU.com.
