This information is not shared with others. The Mobile App may use your mobile device’s “background location” to provide you with additional information and reminders, including to send you notifications. If you have “background location” turned on, the Mobile App may periodically store your location, such as to analyze foot traffic in and around certain dining locations, even if you are not directly interfacing with the Mobile App.
