Information Collection and Use
For a better experience, while using Polaris GPS Navigation, we will ask for certain information, including but not limited to location information, and internet usage statistics as well as access to your device's file system (photos and files). The location information that we request is used for the core GPS Navigation functions in the application. This data may also be shared with our advertising partners after it is anonymized in order to deliver and monitor advertising content to you, as described above. File access is required in order to store maps and photos made with the app in your device's file system. Information that can directly personally identify you is never transmitted to Disciple Skies Software or our advertising partners by the application. Your device's IP address is transmitted to DS Software and our map providers when you download maps with the application, just as it is whenever you visit a website on the World Wide Web. The IP address is kept anonymous and is used for the purpose of monitoring and streamlining advertising content and to help debug the application as described below.
Location information that is collected by the application is shared with third party map service providers in order to provide core application functionality. For driving directions, your exact location will be forwarded to the Google Directions Service via the Google Maps App on your device. A link to the Google Services Privacy Policies is given below.

We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it.
