When creating an interactive map using the Mapme service, you will typically enter and upload information such as addresses, text descriptions, photos, videos which constitute the “Users Content”.
Mapme will collect and process the “Users content”. For such purposes, Mapme shall be considered as a “Processor” and not as the “Controller” (as defined in the European Union General Data Protection Regulation) of such Users-of-Users Information. The Users shall be considered as the “Controllers” of the “Users Content” and are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations that may apply to the collection and control of such Information, including all privacy and data protection laws of all relevant jurisdictions.
If you decide to publish the map and share it (social network, website embeds…) this information becomes available to the public.
You can decide at any moment to delete your User Content by using the “Delete” option in the Mapme dashboard. However, even after its deletion, copies of User Content may remain viewable in online cache and archived pages or if any Users-of-Users have copied or stored such User Content.
So, please do not include information on your map if you don’t want it to become publicly available. You do so at your own risk.
