Skyhook Respects Your Privacy.

Skyhook respects the privacy of our customers, prospects, end users, partners and employees. Since our founding in 2003, our mission has been to unleash the power of location-based services to deliver accurate location, enhanced user experiences, more personalized content, and greater real-world insights to our customers. We believe that a respect for – and commitment to – user privacy lies at the heart of the entire market for location-based services. Without trust in the provision, use and utility of the location-based services, such services will be disabled and their value will diminish or disappear. Accordingly, Skyhook believes that it is only through transparency and a commitment to user choice that the full value of mobile location-based services will ultimately be realized.

On this webpage, you will find information regarding Skyhook’s specific privacy practices, including links to our privacy policies, procedures and contracts, as well as information regarding our ongoing commitment to compliance around the world.  As always, if you have any questions regarding Skyhook’s data privacy and protection rules, you may contact us at privacy@skyhook.com or write to us at:
