Introduction

Our Privacy Policy explains how Geocaching4Locus collect, use, and share information when you use our websites (including www.geocaching4locus.eu) or our mobile applications (collectively referred to as our “Services”).

This Privacy Policy will be updated to reflect our current data collection, use, and sharing practices.

Third Party Services

All the Third Party Services we use we trust and deem their services important into our effective operation.

So you can find out more about the services we use, and in turn those you may use, whilst interacting with our Services, we are also providing information on what we use the services for and links to their associated Privacy Policies.
