In the last few days, some media outlets have reported that data of the users of Muslim Pro, a popular mobile app, might have been sold to the United States military through X-Mode, a location data company. These articles might have been interpreted in a way suggesting that Quadrant had business relationship with X-Mode or Sierra Nevada, another company mentioned in some of the reports.
We want to clarify that Quadrant has never purchased or sold data from or to X-Mode or Sierra Nevada.
Until November 19, X-Mode and Sierra Nevada were listed on Quadrant’s Trusted Partners page. The “Trusted Partners page” is a standard practice in the location data industry. It is a catalogue of companies based on the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s (IAB) Transparency & Consent Framework Vendors List, often with a few additions like non-IAB certified, but significant industry players. It is not a list of Quadrant’s clients or suppliers. We have removed both companies from our Trusted Partners page for clarity.
