This document was not written or reviewed by a lawyer. This privacy page applies to both the Pinball Map website and the Pinball Map app.
When people make map edits, we see what the edit is, along with your username and email that you've supplied to us, as well as the "user agent" info that is automatically collected by all browsers. This includes generic device information and a public IP address. So in addition to the seeing an update like, "Star Trek was removed from Bob's Big Bar by USERNAME," we also see the user agent info:
(entered from xx.xxx.xxx.xxx via Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0))
(entered from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx via PinballMap/20 (iPhone; iOS 8.3; Scale/2.00))
We sometimes use this generic device info for troubleshooting problems (such as, "it looks like this person is experiencing issues on the iOS app").
When you use the mobile app, and have Location Services enabled, the app uses the location data (to, for example, tell you the closest locations with pinball machines). We do not collect or store this information (so, of course, we cannot associate it with an IP address, device info, or username). We do not know where you are, and we do not care where you are.
We do not share:
We do not share any user data with anyone.
We do not use third party analytics. We've found that we don't have the time to analyze that type of data and we don't care about it. All we care about are the edits that are made to the map.
