In general, location does not have to be turned on in order to use Village Vesl. However, Village Vesl does require location services in order to utilize the flags feature. You will not be able to accurately plant or trip flags without location services turned on. Village Vesl will periodically track your device’s location and use that information to determine your phone’s proximity to flags. The location data collected by Village Vesl is used to enhance the quality of service we provide you. At no time will Village Vesl share or sell your location data with any third party.
