Web Site Visitors & Statistics
Like most Web servers, GPS Visualizer's server software logs non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each request. GPS Visualizer's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the site, as well as provide technical support in the event of a problem. From time to time, GPS Visualizer may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Web site.
IP addresses, which are potentially personally-identifying information, are also collected as part of the server logs, but are never published individually nor in aggregate.
GPS Visualizer does not require its users to provide any personal information. However, it is possible that some uploaded data files may contain personally-identifying GPS locations, timestamps, addresses, or other sensitive information. See "Uploaded Data," below.
Many features of GPS Visualizer require visitors to upload a data file, usually a GPS track or spreadsheet. These files are used only to produce maps, profiles, or other geographic output (e.g., GPX or KML files). Users' files are stored on the server for seven days — in case technical support is needed — and then deleted permanently; while on the server, the files are kept in a directory which is not accessible via the World Wide Web. Only the webmaster has access to the uploaded files.
The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, nor any method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
