Privacy Policy

Placemarkt wants to preserve your privacy by requiring you to provide as little information about yourself as possible. We don't serve ads and we don't sell your data.

What do we collect?

Personal information

For account creation, Placemarkt requires your email. We ask you for an email to confirm your account and provide you with a way to reset your password if you forget it.

When adding a new location, we store that location's lat/lng coordinates. For the sake of convenience, we allow users to optionally set the lat/lng coordinates for a location to the lat/lng coordinates representing the current position of the user. This information, however, is only saved as the location's coordinates. We do not capture or record whether a location's coordinates were generated based on the current location of a user or based on an address or position of a marker on a map. Additionally, at no time is your current location stored on our servers.

Cookies

In order to manage authentication, Placemarkt uses a single session cookie to determine if you are logged in.

Payment information

We require a credit card for payment. We do not store your credit card and never see your credit card number. Payments are handled by a third-party processor, Stripe.

Mapping and Geolocation services

We use the Thunderforest to display maps to users.

We use OpenCage to convert lat/lng coordinates to addresses and vice-versa.
