Advertising and Privacy

This application may display adverts. The choice of advertising system(s) or source(s) is subject to change without notice.
We currently use the Microsoft Advertising SDK. This system can use an anonymous id to help target and track ads better, if this feature is enabled in your operating system and not disabled within our application (see the Settings charm). We do not explicitly provide any additional personal details (such as location) to the advertising system, but do not make any specific promises relating to information gathered or used directly by that system at any time.
You may opt-out or configure settings relating to advertising at this link;

Bing Maps

Some optional features may use the Bing Maps services. See the end user terms of use for the Bing Maps service here;

When using the geo-tagging feature we may also use your current location, as provided by your device, if you allow access. This used only to display your current location on the map, and tag the image at that location if it doesn’t already contain geo co-ordinates or if you manually choose to tag at that location. First use of this feature will prompt for access, and access can be granted or revoked via Windows settings at anytime.
