With the application, the user is able to document their travel routes by means of GPS tracking. They may attach text and image information to recorded waypoints in order to create a comprehensive trip documentation for themselves. The application includes a map view as well as outdoor navigation tools such as a compass.
By using the application, you agree that your personal information will be handled as described in this policy.
User privacy is extremely important to the developer. In fact, one of the primary reasons for developing the application was to create a GPS tracking tool that offers maximum privacy.
The application is not interested in any personal user information whatsoever, therefore:
- The application does not collect any personal identifiable information.
- The application does not use any third-party libraries that may collect personal information in the background. This includes libraries that show ads, third party usage statistic libraries, etc.
- Although the application may retrieve the user's location, it is important to note that the application will never transfer location-based information anywhere automatically except if the user chooses to do so explicitly, e.g. by using one of the 'send' features of the application to send their position to a third person.
DATA STORED ON THE USER’S DEVICE
The app stores trip data, settings, and all the data needed to function properly on the user’s device. The developer has no access to this data.
DATA TRANSFERRED TO EXTERNAL SERVICES
Manually transferred data
Automatically collected data
The application may automatically collect certain anonymous information for two reasons only: to ascertain license validity and to gather usage statistics that may help to improve the application. This information may include, but is not limited to, anonymous licensing data as provided by the Google Play licensing service, the type of mobile device being used, info about the user’s operating system, device ID, and limited information about the way the application is being used. This information is used to improve the app and quickly resolve errors.
Automatically collected data when viewing online maps
While viewing online maps, information may automatically be collected by the chosen online map tile provider (e.g. OpenStreetMap tile server) – a standard procedure with URL requests in an internet browser for example. This information may include, but may not be limited to, your IP address, the type of application you use (this Application) and the requested map tile URLs. For privacy information regarding the downloading of map tiles, refer to the privacy policies of the respective map tile providers.
USAGE OF COLLECTED DATA
The data the application collects and transfers is used strictly for license verification and app improvement purposes. ‘Improvement’ refers to changes to the source code of the application. No personal identifiable information is collected. This information is not used to contact the user, for marketing purposes etc. and the collected data is not shared with anyone, legal requirements excluded.
If you have any questions regarding privacy while using the Application, please contact the developer via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
