I agree for my personal data to be processed by Remove the cap, for the purpose(s) of displaying map tiles, geocoding addresses and calculating and display directions. The user of this website is waiving all rights to review or approve any portion of the submitted content and contributions made to this website by the user. The user also agrees to allow removethecap.com to edit, copy, publish and distribute the submitted content and contributions, this includes display on the internet.

Some visual components of WP Google Maps use 3rd party libraries which are loaded over the network. At present the libraries are Google Maps, Open Street Map, jQuery DataTables and FontAwesome. When loading resources over a network, the 3rd party server will receive your IP address and User Agent string amongst other details. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective libraries for details on how they use data and the process to exercise your rights under the GDPR regulations.

WP Google Maps uses jQuery DataTables to display sortable, searchable tables, such as that seen in the Advanced Marker Listing and on the Map Edit Page. jQuery DataTables in certain circumstances uses a cookie to save and later recall the "state" of a given table - that is, the search term, sort column and order and current page. This data is held in local storage and retained until this is cleared manually. No libraries used by WP Google Maps transmit this information.

Please see here and here for Google's terms. Please also see Google's Privacy Policy. We do not send the API provider any personally identifying information, or information that could uniquely identify your device.

Where this notice is displayed in place of a map, agreeing to this notice will store a cookie recording your agreement so you are not prompted again.

Due to the site’s unexpected success, I need your support to keep the site running. I've made initial significant investments for domains, hosting and software and have ongoing costs on the map. I still have no intention to make any profit, but I do risk getting into financial trouble.
