CartoChrome’s Privacy Policy

By using CartoChrome (“CC”) you permit the collection and use of your personal information as outlined below in our Privacy Policy.

What May CartoChrome Collect?

The information you submit: CC collects information you submit such as addresses searched, profile information including name, email address, user profile pictures, billing address, electronic mail address, credit card number, credit card expiration date, and potentially additional information. When you submit photos and comments to CC these will be displayed publicly along with your name and we may distribute this information to a wider audience through third party sites and services.

The information we collect: Some information collected is not explicitly submitted by the user. For example, we log your browser information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp. We may collect and store information about your location or the location of photographs if you enable your mobile device or computer to send us location information.

When you Subscribe or Register for, or place an order with, the Site, we offer the use of a secure server. All information you enter is encrypted via a secure sockets layer (SSL) before it is sent over the internet to secure servers. Furthermore, we use commercially reasonable practices to protect the customer data we collect from unauthorized access. However, no information that is transmitted over, or accessible through, the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While Location Inc. utilizes systems to protect personal information, CC cannot guarantee that personal information will be completely secure from misappropriation due to inappropriate or unlawful activities, or due to the failure of computer hardware, computer software, or other equipment or systems.

How Does CartoChrome Use Your Information?

The information you submit like photographs and comments including your name may be redisplayed on the CC website, other websites operated by CC, and third party sites. CC will occasionally send email to our users and you have the ability to unsubscribe at any time.

We use Facebook Connect and Google Login to authenticate users and to prevent abuse when people edit CC information. We may use information from your profile to contact you about CC related features.

Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server and administer CC. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners.

Transfer of Information

CC will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes. Further, CC may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of CC, such as an acquisition by or merger with another company.
