Privacy Policy

UMass BusTrack is owned, operated, and maintained by Görkem Güclü (“me”, “I”). I respect your right to privacy and share your concern about the security of any data you may submit via my mobile application (“UMass BusTrack”, “BusTrack”, or the “app”) or through my website (the “site”), currently accessible at

Your privacy is critically important to me. I am not interested in making profit through your data. Therefore, I am not asking for your personal data, unless I truly need it. I don't store your data on my server, unless required for the on-going operation of one of my services. Most importantly, I don't share your personal information with anyone.

The following statement discloses the guidelines I have established for protecting the information you provide to me during your visit to the site and while using the app.

Location Data

UMass BusTrack includes various location-based features such as bus stop schedules near your position. To provide these location-based features BusTrack will use precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your mobile device, when you use the app.

This location data is used in real-time and not stored on your phone or on my server.

Aggregated Statistics

I may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to my website and users of the app. For example, I may aggregate anonymous usage data to analyse and optimise the app or the site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, I collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the site.

Email Communications

Any service-related emails (help requests, feedback, etc.) generally do not offer an option to unsubscribe as they are necessary to provide the service you requested.

Data Security

UMass BusTrack uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal and location information during transmissions to our servers.

We restrict access to data to our employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the app. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline if they fail to meet those obligations.


This privacy policy does not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to me, such as feature requests and feedback sent via our support channels. All unsolicited information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and I shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such unsolicited information to others without limitation or attribution.


While I continue to work hard to protect your data, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and I cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.

Privacy Policy Changes

If I make changes to any terms or conditions of this privacy policy, these changes will be posted on the site in a timely manner. We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. In case of a business transaction in which a portion or all of my business is acquired, I will notify you as described above in this paragraph.
