Personal information that you provideWhen you register with the Services, 2ndPilot may ask you to provide certain contact and personal details, such as mobile device number and e-mail address. Bear in mind that false, incorrect, or out dated information may impair 2ndPilot’s ability to provide you with the Services and to contact you when necessary. 2ndPilot will explicitly indicate the fields for mandatory completion.

If you do not wish to sign up when installing the Application, you can choose the option «Not Now», which creates a temporary anonymous 2ndPilot account.
