Does Foursquare Swarm track my location?

Foursquare Swarm deals with location, so in order to work, Foursquare Swarm needs to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with the Foursquare Swarm app on your mobile device, we use the location information from your mobile device to tailor the Foursquare Swarm experience to your current location (i.e., we’ll show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This information is NOT shared with others. 

Your location data is ONLY shared with others when you decide to proactively “check in” to tell Foursquare Swarm you’re at a particular place or, if you have turned on ‘check-in by friends,’ when your friend mentions you in a check in. If you are checked in by your friend, you can delete the check in.
