Data we collect
When you use our services
We use analytics tools such as Google Analytics to collect data about you and your use of our services when you visit a website that is maintained by MAP Resources. These tools allow us to collect data about you (general location, how you found our website, etc.), your device (operating system, device type, etc.), and your use of our services (link clicks, page views, etc.).
This form of data collection may be subject to the following policies:
When you contact us
When you contact us using an online form or an external contact method (such as email or social media DM), you consent to the collection of any information you include in the message, as well as information contained in the contact method (such as your email address or social media handle). Because this form of data collection only occurs if you take a specific action, you are opted out by default.
Data storage practices
MAP Resources will take measures to prevent unauthorized access to data we are storing about your use of our services. These may include:
Obscuring the data's association with MAP Resources
However, no data protection strategy is completely effective, and we are not responsible for unauthorized access that occurs despite our efforts.
We do not automatically collect information that could be easily used to determine your identity ("identifying information"). However, identifying information may be shared when you use specific services we offer (such as emailing us). This data will be stored in the location it was originally shared (such as an email inbox or social media DM conversation).

Some data about your use of our services may be stored by a third party, either because the data were collected by that third party or because MAP Resources is using a third-party service to store the data. MAP Resources will handle data stored by third parties in accordance with this policy and we will take measures to ensure the methods by which we handle this data are only accessible to us, however, we are not responsible for how third parties handle data they are storing about your use of our services.
MAP Resources will delete or anonymize data we are storing about your use of our services within a year of that data being collected. When possible, we will also direct third parties to delete or anonymize MAP Resources' copy of data they are storing about your use of our services within a year of it being collected. Identifying information stored by MAP Resources will be deleted as soon as the reason we are storing it is no longer valid.
