    About Wireless Location Based Services

    Your wireless device can determine its (and your) physical, geographical location ("Location Information") and can associate Location Information with other data.

    Additionally, certain applications, services and programs are capable of accessing, collecting, storing and using Location Information and disclosing Location Information to others.

    To limit potential unauthorized access to your Location Information, Verizon mobile phones are preset to E911 only, which will only allow emergency response personnel to locate you if you dial 9-1-1 from your phone. Other wireless devices (such as broadband data cards or devices without a keypad or user interface) may or may not have such limitations and location settings available.

    Using Wireless Location Based Services

    You should use caution when determining whether or not Location Information should be made available to others and you should review any applicable third party privacy policies before providing access.

    To limit potential unauthorized access to your Location Information, Verizon offers various mechanisms and settings to manage access to location data.

    Permissions and Wireless Location Based Services

    By enabling location settings you are permitting third party access to Location Information through software, widgets or peripheral components you choose to download, add or attach to your wireless device or through web access, messaging capabilities or other means.

    By enabling location settings you are authorizing Verizon to collect, use and disclose your Location Information as appropriate to provide you with any location services that you enabled.
