Is my project data shared?
Each project has two privacy settings which are accessible by going to the My Projects page, selecting your project and then clicking "Edit":
- List this project publicly
Ticking this lists your project in the Trap.NZ directory. This allows others to find and request to join your project. The name, organisation, contact details, description, links, and location fields will be visible to the public. Personal details will remain private.
- Share summary data
Ticking this allows us to share summarised data from your project (e.g. the number of traps, catch counts, baits used, the approximate area managed etc). Information is aggregated at a 200m x 200m grid level. This makes it difficult for anyone to determine the exact of traps and stations.
Detailed trap or station information such as names, notes, photos and "recorded by" fields are not shared. Likewise, profile information such as member names and addresses are not shared. These are private to your project.
