Location data may be used in conjunction with personal data. Some features of the Service, particularly any location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.

It is possible at times when collecting non- personal data through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personal data that is mixed in with the non- personal data.  While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists.  If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal data, please notify us at hello@weadmit.com
