MapWise collects non-personally-identifying information including 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. MapWise’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the websites visitors use each site. From time to time, MapWise may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the MapWise Website choose to interact with it in ways that require MapWise to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MapWise gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask customers who want save or upload data to register with a username and email address on the Website. Those who engage in transactions with MapWise may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MapWise collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the customer’s interaction with MapWise. MapWise does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the understanding that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.
MapWise may collect statistics which may be comprised of aggregated personally-identifying information about the behavior of visitors to its websites and customers of its services. MapWise may display this statistical information publicly or provide it to others. However, MapWise does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MapWise 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 MapWise’s behalf or to provide services available at MapWise’s website, 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 MapWise’s Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MapWise 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, MapWise discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, court order, or when MapWise believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MapWise, third parties or the public at large.
