The Xcelerate for Drivers native application (the "Application") is an electronic service provided by Element Fleet Management's Element Vehicle Management Services, LLC on its own behalf and behalf of its fleet-management-business affiliates ("Element"). Software, hosting and other functions and content may be provided by our service providers ("Service Providers"), other affiliated companies ("Affiliates"), or others in a business relationship with us ("Business Partners"). Business Partners may include, but are not limited to, Customers of Element or suppliers of goods and services to Element and its Customers ("Suppliers"). We are providing you with access to this Application because you are associated with an Element Customer ("Your Company").
This Statement describes the type of information Element may collect as a result of your use of the Application and what Element does with that information.

Information Collected Automatically
Element may collect and use technical information about the device you are using and about your use of the Application to facilitate use of and identify enhancements to, if any, (a) the Application and (b) our provision of services to Your Company. For example, we may collect information about device model, operating system and version, unique device identifier, serial number, device motion information, and mobile network information.
One specific purpose of the Application is to utilize electronic methods to determine the location of a device utilizing the Application. For example, if you permit the Application to access location services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system, the Application may collect and provide to Element the location of your device. While your operating system may allow you to opt out of location services, this will negatively impact the performance and utility of the Application and, regardless, the Application and Element may utilize other methods to determine your location.
