Mappic respects the privacy of the users of our website, software products, and services. Any personal information gathered will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used in ways for which you have specifically consented. We do not sell or rent any personal information collected from you to any third party. We will take special care to protect the privacy and security of your information.
When using Mappic services, you may choose to upload or submit image files, text files or other data to our servers. Any files or data you choose to upload will be stored on and analyzed by our servers. You may choose to share this data, or the results of the data analysis, with your friends or the public.
The data you upload is associated with your account on our website, and thus linked with the details you choose to provide. It is not correlated with any other personally identifiable information, such as information you may provide us when ordering products or services.
We may make use of our users' uploaded data to perform aggregate analyses, and publish or otherwise use the results of those analyses. But any such data aggregation is designed not to be correlatable to a specific user, or to that user's account on our website, without that user's permission.
Like most website operators, Mappic collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our services. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
In a similar manner, Mappic may also collect non-personally-identifying information for the purpose of anonymously tracking activity within our mobile and desktop applications.
Mappic also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users submitting data to our website. Mappic only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
In addition, Mappic collects information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to certain surveys, or fill out certain forms.
When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, email address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server for ordering. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Cookies are small files that a web site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your web browser (if you allow). Cookies enable the web sites or service providers to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website, or link to information on third party websites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
