PERMISSION, DATA USED/COLLECTED & CONNECTIONS

Camera: Your device’s camera is used to take and display photos with compass readings, notes overlays etc.

Internal Storage – Camera Roll: Photos taken with Solocator are saved in the Solocator photo library and can be autosaved or manually exported to your device camera roll when you give permission to the “Storage”. Solocator also saves photo metadata with photos saved to your camera roll.

Location/Positioning: Solocator uses your device’s location/positioning services (GPS, network, etc.) to capture your current position and accuracy. The geo coordinatinates, accuracy and altitude are required to stamp this information onto photos taken by Solocator and view photo locations in map view. Your locations are also captured in the photo’s metadata in EXIF format for use in other third-party applications when emailed or exported from Solocator.

  • Display photo location in maps.
  • Get Street address – see below for more detail.
  • Sharing, emailing or exporting photos and photo data from the app via the sharing function to social media, your contacts, external storage services etc. These are manually directed by you, the user, to third parties when using the sharing function.
  • Solocator user guide.

Street Addresses: Solocator “Street Mode” (a feature of the Industry Pack in-app purchase) requires access to the internet and typically uses Google services to determine the street address based on your device’s position (latitude & longitude).

In-App Purchases: Buying items within Solocator requires an internet connection to Google servers.

Crash Reporting: If any crash occurs in the app, the user can agree to send a crash report to Google, including crash type, error message, Android version, device name, etc. Crash reports are saved for analysis.
