8.5.2 Other data, such as those related to wildlife management activities, are not accessible to the public through the system, with the scope of persons having access to the data also being limited, for example, to persons specified by the Group Subscriber or members of the Group or a subset of members of the Group.

8.5.3 The User acknowledges that, upon connection to the Group Subscriber's account, the Group Subscriber's administrator may view their personal data and may also modify the data recorded by the User in the Service in respect of certain data.

8.5.4 In order to prevent misuse of data, the Service will keep a log of some of the data modification activities (the log will include the date of modification, the User's ID of the User making the modification, the original data and the modified data). Such changes may be retrieved by Group Subscriber's administrators or by a limited number of persons specified by the Service Provider.

8.6 Handling of the User's perceived or actual location

8.6.1 The User's location will not be tracked by the Service in real time without the User's knowledge and express consent.

Furthermore, the retrieval of location data in Internet browsers can be restricted or disabled by the User.

8.6.3 In the case of mobile applications, the application may not access the User's location data without the User's knowledge and permission.

The User will be informed about the access to the location data by the operating system of the phone or tablet and will be asked for the User's explicit permission to access the location data.

8.7.2 The location of the User(s), whether perceived or actual, will not be publicly disclosed.
