What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Because we are a web app company we collect typical web app information. Seriously, we now have to tell people about this? The world has come to this? Ok, here it goes…
IP addresses are collected by every freakin’ web server in existence including the one on this site. It usually doesn’t have your personal name associated with it but it almost certainly has an IP address that could be tracked down to someplace near you. Maybe even your home. Unless you are using a proxy service, which if your are not just assume everyone knows EXACTLY where you are and what you are doing. The NSA almost certainly does. In fact they probably know you are reading this right now. For the Love of God, you are using the Internet, just assume you have almost no privacy whatsoever.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
In general we try not to share your personally identifiable data without anyone, even if they ask nicely. It really is none of their business. We only want to sell you some software to make putting maps and directories on your site easier. We are not some shady-ass company that wants to make another $12 off selling some jerk-wad a list of our customers so they can spam the crap out of you or show you ads for hair spray.
However just by interacting with our sites there is a TON of data flying around which may, or may not, be used to identify you. Such as:
Safety, Legal, and Law Enforcement Agencies – We use and disclose Data as we believe necessary: (i) under applicable law; (ii) to enforce our terms and conditions; (iii) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or that of our affiliates, You or others; and (iv) to respond to requests from courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, and other public and government authorities, which may include authorities outside your country of residence.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
