We may use the location information collected from your Device or photos to enhance your use of the Application by providing you with relevant content and contextual advertising. For example, we may use your location to show you tours or excursions near you when you are traveling. You can change the privacy settings of your Device at any time in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the website and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of our website. If you have any queries about the privacy settings of your Device, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your Device or your mobile service provider for help.
