WE ALWAYS ASK FOR PERMISSION
EXPLICIT PERMISSION REQUIRED
SIMPLE OPT OUT

Panelists are offered incentives such as gift cards, discounts, and free offers in exchange for sharing location and device data.
NOT INDIVIDUALLY IDENTIFIABLE
Location Analytics are most valuable when aggregated across thousands of devices versus just one. GetinHere’s products are designed to report on an aggregate basis to third parties.
