Read more about this in our Terms of Service. When using our QuoteG app or software you will be required to create a personal profile and provide personal and contact details including photos.

QuoteG does not share any profile details with any third party, except that which is necessary for the functioning of the app/software. For example, for functioning of the app when a user submits a request to a business our server will send the following details to relevant businesses:

  • Username
  • Location (City / Town / County)
  • Relevant vehicle details such as model, reg number, mileage, fuel type.

This data will also be stored confidentially on our server databases and sent via email to the businesses.

Your username will be publicly visible to other users if you post in the Q&A section or to businesses when you submit a quote request or chat with them. We may use and store your IP address in order to certain features to work or for security reasons to prevent suspicious log ins to your accounts. Your location will not be shared with other users but will be shown to businesses when you make a quote requests as it is necessary for them to ascertain if they can do the work you need.

Desktop and Mobile Ads:

QuoteG displays our own in house and third party ads. When you click on an ad we collect anonymous data such as your location, IP address and device type (such as Android or iPhone). The location is not personal and will be in the form of “City, Country”. This information will be kept confidential by us and not passed on to any third party. We reserve the right to use this data ourselves for the purpose of improving our service and business.

We may display ads provided by third party ad networks. These may be banners ads or video ads. Some of these ad networks may need to upload data from your phone to improve user experience and show more personalized ads, such as device identifiers, location data and other demographic or interest data. We have to obtain your permission in case they do. If you do not consent to this please purchase disable ads feature (if available) in app or uninstall the app. If you want further information about ads in our apps please contact us. 

Device Information:

When using QuoteG the app will have to identify what device type you are using, the OS version/name, cameras available and what permissions you have allowed the app to have such as access to photo gallery. We have to do this to enable or disable certain device specific features. We may also make a record of this information on our server if it is required for statistical purposes (for example we want to see how many users are on Windows Phone) or for the functionality of the app.

Email Marketing:

During the process of our marketing campaigns we may occasionally send out emails to your business email address found via legitimate mean either via your website, online directory, store contact email, or via referral by someone that knows you or your business. We always send out an opt in email first, explaining the reason for the contact, our full address, an option to opt in and a permanent opt out feature. If you do not respond or opt out, we will never email you again. We will only email you if the service or product we are offering is relevant to your business and never send out irrelevant SPAM or bulk emails. We would, therefore, appreciate that if you do not feel the email is relevant or do not wish to be emailed from us again then please simply opt out rather than marking our email as spam, this can cause problems with legitimate emails being sent to your mail provider, other opted in members may then not receive emails from us and thus can cause problems. Also please note intentionally marking legitimate emails as SPAM can lead to unnecessary load on your ISP and have an impact on your email account.
