Collection of your Personal Information
The Track Group website does not collect any personal information. Other Track Group Products do collect personal information, and the information and data we collect depends on whether you’re a user from a Supervising Authority or a monitored individual, the type of electronic monitoring program being run, the type of electronic monitoring device being used, and features chosen.
If you represent a Supervising Authority, then you enter personal information directly into Track Group Products. We collect information including your entity name, address, contact information, financial information, as well the name, address, contact information, and job title for all supervising individuals and product users. Contact information can include physical addresses, email addresses, facsimile numbers, and phone numbers.
If you are a monitored individual using a Track Group Product under direction of a Supervising Authority, then personal information is either entered into Track Group Products on your behalf by your Supervising Authority or provided to us by you.

This may include your name, known aliases, contact information (addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers), financial information, case information, case notes, demographic information, and information about your personal contacts, acquaintances, and victims. It may also include your photograph. If you choose not to provide this information you may not be able to participate in the electronic monitoring program and subject to penalties or alternative sentencing as determined by your Supervising Authority.
If you have been instructed to wear an electronic monitoring device or use a mobile app by your Supervising Authority, we also collect location points, data related to tampering attempts, data related to battery charging, and data used to determine when mobile apps were opened and closed.
