Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. Below you will find an explanation of what information we collect from you and how that information is used in the CDSS Dance Map application.

Our Principles

Facebook Login

The CDSS Dance Map connects with Facebook to retrieve events from Facebook and display them directly on the map. Our application does not store your profile information on its servers or share your information with third parties.

Permissions We Request

Public Profile (required)

When you use Facebook to log in to the CDSS Dance Map, you grant this application access to your public profile information. This includes your name, profile picture, and other public information. Access to your public profile is the minimum permission required for the CDSS Dance Map to retrieve Facebook events.

Manage Events

This permission provides the ability to set your attendee status on Facebook Events (e.g. attending, maybe, or declined). You will only be asked to provide this permission when you attempt to change your rsvp settings for a facebook event on the map.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The CDSS Dance Map collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The CDSS Dance Map’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use the application.

The CDSS Dance Map also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users that add dances or edit dance information. This information is used to keep track of map additions and prevent spam and other malicious activity.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors may choose to interact with The CDSS Dance Map in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the CDSS Dance Map gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, the CDSS Dance Map collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the application. We do not disclose personally-identifying information with third parties, and visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The CDSS Dance Map uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors and their usage of the website. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the CDSS Dance Map.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The CDSS Dance Map may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
