Privacy policy

FlowmapBlue does not store any of the data the users upload to Google Sheets. The data from the spreadsheets is loaded directly into the clients' browsers. We are using Google Visualization API for that.

We treat the data as private, including the URLs of the spreadsheets and flow maps published by the users. We do not disclose the URLs without getting an explicit consent from the authors (unless the authors have already disclosed them by linking from a publicly accessible website).

We collect usage statistics via Google Analytics and track errors via Sentry. We want to know how FlowmapBlue is used and when it fails so that we can improve it. The use of Google Analytics involves setting cookies in the users' browsers for detecting recurring visits and working sessions.

We may try to contact you asking for a permission to add your flow map to the list of examples on the homepage of FlowmapBlue.
