Activate Your App - Locaid Xchange Gateway User Manual
ACTIVATE YOUR APP
The first step to integrate your application to use Locaid services is to activate your account. The activation process starts with a developer filling out a short application form and ends with Locaid supplying a unique identifier called a ClassID that is required to interact with the Locaid Xchange Gateway (LXG).
There are three main steps involved with the activation process:
- Fill out an application form
- Work with a Locaid location specialist to determine the appropriate system flow from our award winning privacy framework called Privacy Vault™
- Receive a unique application identified called a ClassID
Why do I need to fill out an application form?
There are two primary reasons why Locaid requires an application form as the first step in the activation process.
Collect information on how you plan to use location
Everyone in the LBS community needs to think about and respect end user privacy. Locaid has developed an award winning, multi-tiered, option based privacy framework called Privacy Vault™. During the activation process, we collect information on how you to plan to use location in order to assign the appropriate system flow.
Information on how to contact you
In addition to learning a little bit about your company, your industry and your location requirements, Locaid also needs information so that we know how to contact you if we have any questions about your intended location use. We also need to contact you to provide you with a unique identifier called a ClassID that is required to interact with the Locaid Xchange Gateway (LXG).
What is a privacy flow and why do I need one?
At Locaid, we take privacy very seriously. One of our most valuable services to the LBS developer community is that we have taken the “hassle” out of location. To earn the trust of the LBS community and in order to become a carrier partner, Locaid developed an award winning privacy framework known as the Privacy Vault™. Locaid location specialists review the information you provide in your online application form to ensure it is compliant with Locaid Privacy Guidelines, and to determine an appropriate system flow. However, we don’t want to make this decision in a bubble and will involve you to reach a mutually agreed decision.
What is a ClassID and why do I need one?
A ClassID is a five digit unique identifier that Locaid assigns to each activated application in our system. A ClassID is assigned after a developer has filled out an online application and Locaid has reviewed and approved the intended use of location. Each application requires its own distinct ClassID.
