Privacy Policy


Tagmap takes user privacy seriously by keeping information sharing to a minimum. Tagmap does not use any third-party analytics such as Google and instead uses a locally-hosted instance of Matomo, an open source web analytics platform, which can be opted-out of below. Although private user information is not shared with third-parties, information on your profile is public by default (see next section). Tagmap does not share private user data in any way.

Publicity of account information

By default, all information on your profile (excluding email and password) is public and can be viewed by anyone. This can be changed by visiting your settings page and changing your profile visibility setting to restricted, location-restricted, or hidden.

It is suggested that users set their location a comfortable distance away from where they live, as this information is part of your public profile. There is currently no restriction on where you are allowed to set your location, and Tagmap may still be used even if you have no location set, although nearby users cannot be displayed.

User locations are also displayed as approximations to other users in order to provide better anonymization of exact user locations for users who chose to set their precise location.

Who we are is owned by Tagmap LLC, a privately-owned LLC registered in the state of Delaware. is currently hosted using Amazon AWS on servers located in the United States. For more complete and verbose information about what services Tagmap uses to operate, please see the section below titled 'Third party services we use'.

What we collect and receive

Other information that is provided by you during account creation or via your settings page is also stored alongside your account, such as your marker's location, profile information, settings, tags, and similar information that you input.

Views of user profiles are stored so that we may provide users with information such as how many views their profile has received. Other user interactions with the website are also stored, such as when a user changes their settings, adds or removes a tag, visits a page, and any similar actions, to aid us in improving the website via debugging and feature usage analysis.

If you choose to login via Reddit or Discord, Tagmap will save a list of your subscribed subreddits and the IDs of your Discord guilds ('servers') respectively. These are deleted if the tags are removed or if you choose to delete your account afterwards. Tagmap cannot see private Reddit or Discord information such as private messages and is not affiliated with either of these companies.
