IV. Services offered by FGC PERSONES USUÀRIES
Users who are members of FGC PERSONES USUÀRIES will have access in real time to information on trains running on the Barcelona-Vallès, Llobregat-Anoia and Lleida-la Pobla lines. For these purposes, FGC may use certain connection and location data (IP address, SIM card data, Wi-Fi connection or latitude/longitude, among others).
In the “My Profile” personal area of the FGC PERSONES USUÀRIES platform, registered users will have the possibility of including certain added-value data (under “classification data”) which will help us to get to know the user better (in respect of his or her habits and interests) and classify him or her. Such added-value data may be added, modified or eliminated at any time by the user.
Additionally, in “My Profile” there is also a section headed “Manage Communications” through which the user can manage whether he or she wishes to receive informative or commercial communications from FGC, the medium through which he or she wishes to receive them (email, SMS or Push Notification) and can eliminate his or her user account.
The FGC PERSONES USUÀRIES platform also has a personalized alert system that the user can add, modify or eliminate by going to the “Alert Service” in his or her personal area. The system will report incidents concerning the user’s lines and stations in real time. This system is not activated by default and must be activated by the user in the “Alert Service” section of the personal area. Only incidents that affect the user will be reported, according to his or her habitual journeys that the user has previously reported through the “subscription form”. The user may choose the communication channel for alerts, which may be e-mail, SMS or Push Notification. Such added-value data may be added, modified or eliminated at any time by the user.
The personalized alert service will give the user access to a loyalty plan that will give access to a whole range of benefits.
