Safeguarding your data and privacy is a huge deal for us. Let me outline how we think about it.
-At each stage of your data's journey it is encrypted. Device to App; App to cloud; cloud to community website; website to App
-We are building on Google's enterprise platform and their servers which are very safe.
-We are not there yet but will be a paying client of Google so that that data we generate belongs to us and not them.
-The community website and part of the App will be like the app "Waze" if you are familiar with that. While the data developed from your device informs our map, it is not traceable to you, it is anonymized.
-Your data is always available to you, either visualized on the web based map or the app, or downloadable in .csv format.
-We are working on developing privacy settings.
