This includes actions like accessing our content, reading our emails, viewing our advertisements, applying for a job, contacting our sales team, or seeking support from our customer service team. The data we collect can be actively provided by you, and we may also automatically collect information using tracking technologies (detailed below).

**Part 2: Information Collection (Continued)**

QCharge’s mobile application, “QCharge App,” is designed to simplify the process of finding charging stations and charging electric vehicles. When you use our mobile app, we may collect information that you actively provide and automatically collect data through tracking technologies integrated into the App.

When you interact with the QCharge App, we may collect information during activities such as:

– Registering an account and creating a profile.

– Signing in to your account.

– Searching for a charger.

– Reserving or activating a charger.

– Purchasing a subscription, reloading your balance, or making individual payments for services.

– Reviewing your transaction history.

– Updating your profile or adjusting account settings.

– Contacting our support team or reporting an issue.

**The categories of information you may provide to us through the App include:**

– **Contact Data:** This includes your first and last name, email address, postal address, and phone number.

– **Vehicle Data:** We collect details about your vehicle, such as its make, model, connector type, year, and license plate.

– **Account Credentials:** Information related to your account, including your username, password, and other account authentication details.

– **Profile Settings:** Your preferred language and notification settings.

– **Billing Data:** Information necessary to process payments for subscriptions or pay-per-use, including your payment card number, expiration date, and security code. For bank transfers, we may request additional information to facilitate transactions and verify your identity, such as a passport or National ID Card, a bank statement, or other relevant information linking you to an address.

**Automatic Information Collection through the App**

We may automatically collect the following categories of information through the QCharge App:

– **App Usage Data:** This includes data about how you use the app, such as the features you access, the actions you perform, and the time of day you use the app.

– **Device Data:** Information related to your device and its configuration, including the type of device or browser you use, the device’s operating software, internet service provider, regional and language settings, and device identifiers, such as your IP address.

– **Location Data:** Non-precise location data, which may be derived from your IP address or indicate your location at the city or postal code level.

**Tracking Technologies Used within the App**

To collect information automatically, we utilize various tracking technologies within the QCharge App, including:

– **Cookies:** Small data files stored on your device’s browser that store information about your interaction with the app. We use session cookies and persistent cookies, each serving specific purposes. Session cookies facilitate your app navigation and expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies enhance your experience, remember your preferences, enhance security, and deliver personalized advertising. Persistent cookies may remain on your device for extended periods.

– **Pixels (Web Beacons):** Code embedded in the app that sends usage information to a server. These pixels may allow us or other entities to drop or read cookies in your browser, collect information about your app visit, and serve various purposes similar to cookies.

– **Device Fingerprinting:** This involves analyzing and combining data elements from your device’s browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed fonts, to create a unique “fingerprint” of your device. This fingerprint helps us identify your browser and device uniquely.

For more details on how we utilize tracking technologies for analytics and advertising and to explore your rights and choices concerning these technologies, please refer to the “Analytics and Advertising” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections below.

**B. Information Collected through the App (Continued)**

**Charger Station Preferences:** This may include your favorite charging stations and search filters, such as preferences for public versus private stations, charger types, and connector types.

The categories of information we automatically collect through the App include:

– **App Use Data:** This encompasses data about the features you use, pages you visit, the time of day you browse, and the pages you access before and after using the app.

– **Device Data:** Information regarding the type of device or browser you use, your device’s operating software, internet service provider, regional and language settings, and device identifiers, such as your IP address and Ad ID.

– **Location Data:** This includes non-precise location data, which may be derived from an IP address or data that indicates a city or postal code level. With your consent, we may also collect precise location data, such as latitude/longitude coordinates.

**Tracking Technologies Used for Information Collection in the App:**

– **App Technologies:** These are technologies integrated into our mobile app that are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings.

– **Precise Location Technologies:** These include GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth technologies used to collect precise location data. Precise location data may be used for purposes like verifying your device’s location and showing you nearby Charging Stations based on that location. It is important to note that we do not use tracking technologies within the app for Interest-based Advertising purposes, although they may be utilized for analytics and non-Interest-based Advertising purposes, such as contextual advertising.

**C. Information Collected through Charging Stations**

When you set up an account through the QCharge mobile app, we create a QR Code and an internal ID associated with your account. To reserve or activate a Charging Station, you must scan your QR Code or share your internal ID with the Charging Station. When you do so, the Charging Station gains access to the information you provided within the App, including your Contact Data, Vehicle Data, and Billing Data.

During the charging process, we automatically collect information about the charge, known as “Charging Data.” This includes details such as the station’s name, location, charging session date, start time, end time, duration, energy dispensed, charging port identification number, total fees for each charging session, applied pricing policy, power cycle patterns, current, voltage, and more.

Charging Stations may also be equipped with sensors that can collect information about your vehicle, including your vehicle’s make and model.

**D. Information from Other Sources**

In addition to the information you provide through the App and Charging Stations, we collect information from various other sources. These sources may include:

– Third-party map integrations, such as Waze, Google Maps, and Apple Maps, when you access their maps through our App.
