This explains how we use any personal information we collect about you when you use this website and our services.
1. Information we collect from you, and why we collect it
We collect information about you when you place an order. Website usage information is collected using cookies.
When placing an order, we collect and retain your:
- Order details
- Email address
- Phone number (if provided)
- Billing and shipping address
- VAT exemption declaration
- Username (if you simultaneously register to access your order details).
We retain this information purely for the purposes of:
- Contacting you if there are any urgent queries regarding your order (e.g. incomplete address or missing information)
- Notifying you of your placed order, and its dispatch, via email
- Finding your order details should you need any help, assistance or extras in the future
- Notifying you of anything specific relating to your order, for example if there are any recent pertinent updates to the device or accessories
- We are legally required to retain your VAT declaration information for VAT auditing purposes
If you email at any time, we will retain the content of your email history purely as a reference point for any further related correspondence relating to the specific issue.
We do not send marketing emails, and ordinarily you will receive no further communication from us unless you need to get in touch yourself for any reason.
2. Who we share your information with
We will not share your information with anyone. We have never sold or shared information regarding our customers.
3. What do we do with your information and for how long
Your order and contact information is automatically stored on a secure SQL database, on a dedicated server space. We retain details to allow orders to be tracked should customers require assistance, which is normally for a period of three years.
The content of any emails you send is stored on Google’s email service. We have taken measures to ensure this system is secure, and more so than using third-party email software where content would be stored on a local machine.
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email [email protected] or via the address below.

5. Other websites
Personal GPS Trackers is a trading name of Stray Star Ltd, who operate the website Personalgpstrackers.co.uk.
1. GPS Tracker usage – product description and requirements
A GPS Tracker is intended to be used as an electronic monitoring and tracking system. It utilises two technologies: GPS (Global Positioning System, satellite tracking) and GSM (Global System for Mobile communications, use of mobile phone networks). Our GPS Trackers rely on the use of SMS text messages sent between the tracker and a mobile phone or GPRS platform.
The system requires connection to these other technologies and enables the user to track the location with suitable accuracy in most reasonable circumstances.
A suitable SIM card for use in the applicable area is required. Costs for SMS and GPRS data maybe incurred, and will vary according to network. The SIM cards we can provide are with GiffGaff who use the o2 network. It is your responsibility to check that network coverage is suitable for your area before going ahead with any SIM activation.
Our GPS Trackers use a rechargeable lithium battery which requires charging at intervals.
2. Accepted limitations and safety
The purchaser accepts that a GPS Tracker is an assistive aid to the monitoring and tracking of the target person or object. The nature of the complex technology and the reliance on third party telecommunication systems means that there is no absolute guarantee of performance. Accuracy can vary depending on a number of factors.
For this reason, a Tracking Device should not encourage the user to enter into situations which would be dangerous without the use of a Tracking Device. They do not guarantee safety.
You should be aware that services that rely on location information, such as GPS, depend on your Device’s ability to acquire satellite signals (typically not available indoors) and network coverage. Network coverage and satellite signals are dependent on a number of factors not within the control of Stray Star Ltd, including weather, topographical changes, the presence of obstructions such as tall buildings, the functionality of various satellites, clouds, and other factors. In addition, some areas, such as some schools, are equipped with mobile phone inhibitors that interfere with all phone communications. The Services will not work under such circumstances.
GPS location readings are inherently subject to ‘bounce’ which can affect accuracy in varying increments, generally not exceeding 500 ft, but on occasion in excess of 200 ft.
The GPS satellite system is made up of approximately 26 satellites that are moving at roughly 16,000 miles per hour. The Earth is orbiting the sun and rotating. Four satellites need to be ‘seen’ by the GPS Tracker in order to obtain a location. At certain times of the day one satellite will begin to go out of range of your GPS Tracker and will hand over to another satellite. At such times you may see a slightly inaccurate location or even a false geo-fence breach (if set). This is also more likely to occur if the GPS Tracker is indoors, where the signal may “drift” slightly.
Your GPS Tracker should be switched on for the first time outdoors, and it may take at least 5 minutes to find the four satellite signals it needs for a location. Further locations should be much quicker however, and more accurate. If your GPS Tracker is ever left switched off for more than a day, you should switch it on again outdoors to allow for the best opportunity to acquire the necessary satellite signals.
Ensure that the GPS Tracker is charged and that a suitable SIM is inserted. Read the manual carefully before use.
Ensure that both GSM and GPS signals can be obtained.
