Privacy Policy

MapMe is provided by Pin Point Alerts Ltd, with a registered business address at Burrell Hall, St Kierans College, College Road, Co. Kilkenny. At Pin Point Alerts, we understand the importance of privacy and we will always strive to protect your privacy and preserve the trust you place in us. We only collect and retain as much information as is absolutely necessary for us to provide you with our MapMe.ie service, and whenever possible we disassociate any personally identifiable information from the data we retain. We will only share user data with 3rd parties if we are obligated to by law, or to the extent that it directly contributes to the services we provide (and with the proper precautions to protect personal information).

This Privacy Policy explains our policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of certain information, including your personal information, by Pin Point Alerts Ltd through your use of the https://www.mapme.ie website (the “Website”) as well as the MapMe iOS and Android applications (the “Applications,” and, collectively with the Websites, the “Service”) you accept and agree to our information practices described below.

Collection of User Information

We collect information you provide to us. Example may include:

  • Your email address (provided at registration)
  • Your county (dropdown selection at registration used to optimize your web map experience)
  • Your preferred alert locations (provided by clicking on a web map for places where you want alerts)
  • Your device IP address (provided when you complete/submit any forms - this allows MapMe to optimize your website experience and to secure the site from access from any regions/countries where the service is not accessible)
  • Your operating system, and the details concerning the Internet browsers you use (allows us to optimize your website experience, for example, redirecting from desktop pages to mobile or tablet pages where necessary)
  • Your web browser cookies (These enable the optimal functionality of the website and improve the ease of use of the Service. Some of our third party analytics and advertising providers may also use cookies.)
  • Your Facebook Name (This is gathered as part of the Facebook Chat application we use to issue targeted Service alerts to you and improves the MapMe:user chat experience. For example, we may say "Hello John" instead of just "Hello" to keep the chat bot experience somewhat personal in appearance.)
We do not collect any credit card or payment information from Service users. All payments are processed using Stripe Payments (https:///www.stripe.com). Their privacy policy is available at this link: https://stripe.com/ie/privacy and we adhere to Stripes terms, guidelines and privacy statement at all times.

Use of Information

Your data is solely used by MapMe.ie and is not shared with any external organisations as part of the Service. We retain your information only as long as necessary to provide our services.

Third Party Advertisers

We work with Google as a 3rd party advertising provider, who needs to know how you interact with advertising provided on the Website. You may review the privacy policies of Google at this link: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/

Trusted Third Parties

We may work with trusted third parties to conduct research or to improve, enhance, alter, or expand our services. These trusted third parties have agreed to abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy. Any public disclosure of the work performed by these trusted third parties will be anonymized. For example, for outsourced development work on the Website or Applications we will be using empty user databases for testing. No live user databases will be shared at any stage during development or upgrade work with 3rd party contractors.

Opt-out

You can stop all collection of information by the Service by unsubscribing from the Service and ceasing all use of the Website and Applications. If you unsubscribe from MapMe.ie then your data records will be immediately deleted. You can unsubscribe from the service in the Account Settings part of the logged-in user experience.

Some browsers can transmit a “do not track” signal or other similar mechanisms. Unfortunately, there is not yet an adopted standard for how to respond to these signals, so we currently ignore them.

Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. Our company is also fully aware of our Data Protection obligations, including the GDPR regulations wihich are enforceable from May 25th 2018.

Effective Date & Changes

This Privacy Policy is effective July 21, 2017.

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy within the MapMe.ie logged in user experience.
