What is Data Encryption?

Encrypted data is converted from a plain and readable state to an encoded state that can only be decoded or reverted to its plain state with the correct encryption key. Encrypted data becomes scrambled or unreadable to anyone that does not have permission to read it. This keeps sensitive information unaccessible from anyone who is not intended to access the information.


What types of data and information are encrypted on the Scout To Hunt App?

All data on the Scout To Hunt App are encrypted end-to-end.


Why Does Scout To Hunt encrypt all data on the Scout To Hunt App?

We find it imperative to protect your privacy and maintain the security of your account information as well as the Map and Location data you create. Our Application is encrypted through the AES-256 encryption-key methodology, an unbroken encryption algorithm. The core purpose for employing this end-to-end encryption is to ensure that the data input into the Application by the User within the User's account are kept secure and hidden from third-party actors. This also includes Scout To Hunt regarding Map Objects and Location data.

Map Objects include, but are not limited to: Location Markers (Marker Location, Marker Type, Marker Names, Marker Notes, Marker Color, Marker Photos, Marker Sharing), Smart Tracking, HuntReady Offline Maps™, distance measurements (Line, Area, Radius).


Permissioned Decryption: User-shared Map and Location Data

User data voluntarily created by the User within their account is obscured and concealed from any actor that does not have access to that User's account and corresponding created data. The User has full discretion as to whom they will allow access to that data (eg., sharing a Marker location). Once access has been voluntarily given per the User's discretion, Scout To Hunt is waived of any liability to unwanted User access or User Map and Location created data disclosure.
