Squareup.com apps tracking users by GPS all the time

I'm running this on the MIUI.US Android ROM that has a security suite that notifies you when apps access: GPS, contact list, and you can block apps from network access. Everytime the phone reboots, I get a security warning that it's querying gps location. It must have a service running in the background using battery life and spying on users location! I don't know if it's always uploading that location information to square or not, but it should only query gps location when I open the app and should not be running all the time.
