Privacy policy for MapTag

I thought I'd better do one of these for MapTag, too. Same template, different stuffs, more comedy.

I am one human being doing this in my spare time. I'm a geek, which means I'm allergic to salesdroids, which means I would rather spear my own eyeballs out with red-hot pokers than market remotely-related stuff to you. If that's doesn't mean anything to you, here be the legalese:

Privacy Policy for MapTag

  • This application sets a cookie which indicates if you have been to the website before or not.
  • We do not receive or collect any personal information about you, such as your name, street address, phone number or email address. Google Analytics reports your country language, country, state/province and the nearest city. It also reports your browser and operating system (though not specific versions) and the name of your ISP.  If you live in a town of 50 people we might be able to figure out who you are by asking your kid, or their best friend, who in town is browsing the web using Safari on a Mac running OSX.  Of course, that means actually travelling to your town to ask this question, and frankly, we have better stuff to do.
  • We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information. 
  • We do not receive, collect or use your precise geographic location.
  • There are no methods of seeing what data we collect from you.
  • We may keep data indefinitely, though since we don't use it other than to say stuff like, "Oh, someone from Tanzania is playing, awesome!" we have no reason to keep it.
  • We do not get any personally identifiable information (such as name, street address, email or phone) much less share it with other companies.  We might consider making some up, though.  I hear advertisers pay for that stuff.
  • We do not knowingly allow advertising companies to collect data through our service for ad targeting. However, be aware that the social media buttons that are included in this game (Facebook, G+, Twitter)  means those social media networks can probably figure out that you played MapTag. If you don't want that, Chrome has a handy extension called Disconnect which disables 3rd-party tracking.
  • We take reasonable steps to secure your information against unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no security or encryption method can be guaranteed to protect information from hackers or human error.
  • Information we collect may be stored or processed on computers located in any country where we do business.
  • We may make anonymous information available to third parties in these limited circumstances: (1) with your express consent, (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, (3) when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our rights or property, or (4) to any successor or purchaser in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution or sale of assets. Your consent will not be required for disclosure in these cases, but we will attempt to notify you, to the extent permitted by law to do so.
  • This privacy policy was last updated on 6/4/2013. Our privacy policy may change from time to time. If we make any material changes to our policies, we will place a prominent notice on our website or application.
