It is policy of this website to respect and protect the privacy of our Customers and never wilfully disclose individually identifiable information about its Customers to any third party without first receiving that Customer's permission.
 
We may, however, occasionally email you with information or queries about your registration or accounts, for instance to request permissions or advise you of changes.

However, switching off cookies may restrict your use of the website and/or affect the way in which the website operates.

Use of Google Maps on this site
 
In using the map on this site you agree for your personal data to be processed by Abacus Legal in the following manner:

  1. 1. for the purpose(s) of displaying map tiles, geocoding addresses and calculating and display directions..
  2. 2. for your personal data, provided via map API calls, to be processed by the API provider, for the purposes of geocoding (converting addresses to coordinates), reverse geocoding and generating directions.
  3. 3. Some visual components of WP Google Maps use 3rd party libraries which are loaded over the network. At present the libraries are Google Maps, Open Street Map, jQuery DataTables and FontAwesome. When loading resources over a network, the 3rd party server will receive your IP address and User Agent string amongst other details. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective libraries for details on how they use data and the process to exercise your rights under the GDPR regulations.
  4. 4. WP Google Maps uses jQuery DataTables to display sortable, searchable tables, such as that seen in the Advanced Marker Listing and on the Map Edit Page. jQuery DataTables in certain circumstances uses a cookie to save and later recall the "state" of a given table - that is, the search term, sort column and order and current page. This data is held in local storage and retained until this is cleared manually. No libraries used by WP Google Maps transmit this information.
  5. 5. Maps will store a cookie recording your agreement so you are not prompted again.

Please see here and here for Google's terms. Please also see Google's Privacy Policy. We do not send the API provider any personally identifying information, or information that could uniquely identify your device.
