Privacy Policy - MapFactor GPS Navigation

MapFactor Navigator is a free turn-by-turn GPS navigation app for Windows phones using OpenStreetMaps data. Maps are installed on your device so there is no need for an Internet connection when travelling. MapFactor GPS Navigation


1.1 Location

The Application uses GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location and display it on a map or during a turn-by-turn navigation.

Your location history is not shared. We do not send your location on-line or share it with other users or partners, except for an anonymous Analytics service (which you can opt out of, see the paragraph 1.2)

If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services in your mobile phone settings and/or within the mobile application. Without location services turn-by-turn navigation will no longer work but you will still be able to display the Map, calculate routes, search off-line or browse your Favorites.

1.2 Analytics

The Application uses Google Analytics for collecting anonymous usage information. This tracking information lets us better understand how you use the Application, allowing us to improve the user experience and correct any errors.

No personally identifying data is included.

You can disable analytics in Application settings. No data will be collected or send on-line if the analytics is disabled.

Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. Find Google's privacy policy here:

1.3 Log files

Log files are small text files stored locally containing debugging data (including application information, maps installed and error reports). They help us deliver better support if you contact us.

Log files are only stored locally and removed when the application is uninstalled. No personally identifying data is included. Log files are not accessible by other applications.

You can see the contents of these Log files in the Send Feedback / Include Log Files dialog. To read them send them to your own personal email and open the Zip file in the attachment.
