Privacy Policy

We love you

Please note that the core of function of this site is sharing your shoudios which consists of recordings you make, tied together with the spot last known on your phone or computer on which you where when you started the recording. This location will become available to the public through the website and apps, and therefore they can be indexed by search engines and others. Furthermore to enhance the site we try to exchange your lat/long information to the nearest address through geo rss services and display this information. In short: if you don't want a certain place to appear to the public, don't start a recording session at that specific place. If you move away from such a place, be sure to hit the 'refresh location' button top-right in the application, to be sure the application has a fresh location. Verify the location change on the mapviews in the application. This is your responsibility.
