Back Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

At LikeMap we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LikeMap 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. LikeMap’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LikeMap’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LikeMap may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LikeMap also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on LikeMap.me posts. LikeMap only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that post commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the post where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LikeMap’s websites choose to interact with LikeMap in ways that require LikeMap to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LikeMap gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a account at LikeMap.me to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with LikeMap – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LikeMap collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LikeMap. LikeMap does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

LikeMap may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, K may monitor the most popular blogs on the LikeMap.me site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LikeMap may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LikeMap does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LikeMap discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LikeMap’s behalf or to provide services available at LikeMap’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LikeMap’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LikeMap will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LikeMap discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LikeMap believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LikeMap, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an LikeMap website and have supplied your email address, LikeMap may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with LikeMap and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LikeMap takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. LikeMap uses cookies to help LikeMap identify and track visitors, their usage of LikeMap website, and their website access preferences. LikeMap visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LikeMap’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of LikeMap’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by LikeMap and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LikeMap may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in LikeMap’s sole discretion. LikeMap encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a LikeMap.me account, you should also check your account’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
