A system and method for providing location information associated with a location owner to location consumers. A location server includes an owner profile for controlling access to the owner's location information. The owner profile contains a time period during which particular location consumers are authorized to access location information associated with the location owner. In response to a location consumer requesting the location owner's location information, the location server determines whether the request lies within the time period associated with the location consumer. If the request lies within the time period associated with the location consumer, the location server obtains location information from a location provider and transmits the location information to the location consumer.
