Privacy statement

PoGo Maps UK (“PoGo Maps” or “we”) host a website showing pogo spawns, raids and quest data on a map (the “map” or “website”).


This Privacy Policy sets forth PoGo Maps policy with respect to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. (“Personal Data”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.  "Personal Data" and identifiable natural person are as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679. "Non-Personal Data" is therefore any information that does not relate to an identified or identifiable natural person.

The limitations and requirements in this Privacy Policy relate only to our gathering, use, disclosure, transfer and storage/retention of Personal Data, but do not apply to Non-Personal Data.

Data that we use, receive, collect, process or store and how we use it:

Using, receiving, collecting, processing or storing Personal Data is not our primary purpose.  PoGo Maps uses, receives, collects, processes or stores only Personal Data necessary to provide the Website and operate its business.
