Doug Forster built the “Doug’s Maps” app’s as commercial apps. This SERVICE is provided by Doug Forster and is intended for use as is.

This page is used to inform visitors regarding my policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information for users of my apps.

The GPS feature needs to access location data even while the app is in the background. This is potentially a privacy issue. DougsMaps only accesses location data while the GPS toolbar is present after you activate the “Start GPS” menu item or use other menu presses that achieve the same toolbar. Access ceases when the X button on the bar is pressed or you exit the app. Location data is optionally saved in a database on the device only.

Location data is only ever shared with other parties if you actively choose to do this via a menu option or by physical connection to a computer. At present this is done manually via gpx files. There may be other methods in future but they will always be manually activated.

DougsMaps does not collect any other personal information in normal use but in the event of an error may collect information such as your device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app, the time and date and other technical statistics.
