You also authorize said entities to release this information to TravelCar.

Personal Information Collected Automatically:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or services. The Company automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. The Company only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, the Company never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We may also collect geo-location data, including location information from your mobile device, and information about the location and movement of your vehicle or the vehicle you are renting during a rental period based upon the movement of your mobile device. We monitor the location of all vehicles to provide our service, to prevent theft, and to allow us to locate you in case of accident, emergency, lock-out, etc. We may maintain location data in order to aggregate trends and metrics and may share de-identified and/or aggregate location and movement data with third parties for advertising, research, analytics, and other purposes.
We may communicate with you via in-app notifications, email, SMS text, or other method. You control when and how you would like to receive messages, and you may be able to opt-out of receiving certain types of messages by contacting us at email@example.com.
