IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLATFORM PERMISSIONS
Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that Gikko seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.

In an aggregated and/or anonymized form which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
You may correct your account information at any time by logging into your Gikko Account. If you wish to cancel your account, please email us at email@example.com. Please note that in some cases we may retain certain information about you as required by law, or for legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law. For instance, if you have a standing credit or debt on your account, or if we believe you have committed fraud or violated our Terms, we may seek to resolve the issue before deleting your information.
Gikko will comply with individual’s requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the personal data it stores in accordance with applicable law.
We request permission for our app’s collection of precise location from your device per the permission system used by your mobile operating system. If you initially permit the collection of this information, you can later disable it by changing the location settings on your mobile device. However, this will limit your ability to use certain features of our Services. Additionally, disabling our app’s collection of precise location from your device will not limit our ability to collect your service location information from a Service Provider’s device nor our ability to derive approximate location from your IP address.
YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
Gikko does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you provide us with consent to do so.
