Privacy Policy was created to facilitate public dialogue, democratic ideals, and participation in policy, planning, research, and more. That means sensitive or valuable information might pass through our platform. For these reasons, we take data and privacy very seriously.

Summary accounts only require your email, postal code, country, and display name. The browser will ask for your location, but this data does not leave your web browser. We also use third party technology services, like servers, databases, hosting, authentication and traffic analysis. These must also comply with our privacy policy.

Any data you contribute to maps should be considered public. Avoid giving any personally identifying info (address, name + birthday, workplace, etc.)... you do so at your own risk.

We are not liable for misuse or mishandling of information that was voluntarily exchanged through our platform (e.g. via survey questions, messages, comments, etc.). If you believe someone is misusing our platform or the data they collect through it, please notify us at
