Mobile Location Services
This Service enables Customers to locate mobile phones. The location accuracy of the service can vary depending on the density and number of phone masts in the area the phone is located (e.g. city locations often provide greater accuracy compared to rural locations). We aim to always provide the highest accuracy data we can at all times. The accuracy radius for each location search is represented on the map by a blue circle. If a phone has been switched off, it is no longer in contact with the nearest phone masts, and we are therefore unable to provide accurate data on its location. However, we will try to display the last-known location, and the time it was last seen. If a phone has been switched off for a longer period of time (the exact time varies between networks), we may not be able to show any location data at all. Some phones connected to a 4G network may be unable to return a location. We have contingencies in place to help avoid this issue, but inaccuracies or lack of location reporting from some devices is often technically unavoidable.
We cannot guarantee we will always find the location of a mobile phone, or the accuracy of the results we deliver. It is possible for a phone to be switched off and/or moved in the time between us displaying the location and you getting to that location to look for the phone.
If the service fails to return a location (e.g. if the mobile phone has been switched off for a long period of time), you may be charged a lookup credit even if the lookup fails. This is due to certain mobile networks passing failed location lookup costs onto us.
The service location data is obtained directly from the relevant local mobile networks.
The Service may be billed either by premium rate reverse billed SMS, Credit and Debit Card, or both, where applicable.
