Share Trail
  1. The upload/share function only works properly in countries where Google services are accessible.
  2. If you upload a trail anonymously to the Hiking Trail HK website, it means that you agree to release the trail under the ODbL.
  3. The uploaded trail can be downloaded by anyone who knows the URL of the trail.
  4. If you make the trail searchable by people, some information of the trail will be added to the index, such that a person does not need to know the URL of the trail in order to find the trail.
  5. The information of the trail is kept in the database and the index, until the share period specified by you ends.
  6. If you specify to extend the share period, and if there are 5 or more views (or downloads for old versions) in the share period, the share period will be extended by the same amount of time. (For example, extended from 1 week to 2 weeks.)
  7. If there are 5 or more views (or downloads for old versions) in the share extension period, the share period will be extended again by the original amount of time. (For example, extended from 2 weeks to 3 weeks.)
  8. After the share period ends, the information of the trail will be removed from the database and the index within 1 day, and will be removed from the backup store within 1 month.
  9. The database, the index and the backup store are hosted in the Google Cloud. The data may be copied to other locations within the Google Cloud for testing and development purpose, if needed.
Annual Subscription
  1. After subscription, ads will be removed from the Hiking Trail HK app, and trial features will be unlocked. The subscription fee will be deducted from your account annually, until you cancel the subscription.
  2. You can only apply for annual subscription in countries where Google services are accessible.
  3. Google's subscription cancellation policy is that a user will not receive a refund for the current billing period when canceling a subscription, but will continue to receive issues and updates of the relevant subscription content (if any) for the remainder of the billing period, regardless of the cancellation.
  4. If you want a refund for the current billing period, you need to contact us directly within one week after subscription. Normally, we do not accept refund unless your subscription does not have any effect due to verification issue.
  5. Google will show the customer location in our order record. The location just includes the country, and the region (i.e. Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, or New Territories for HK customers, if available). No other personal information is found in the order record.
  6. After subscription, if you visit a Hiking Trail HK web page via the app, you can enjoy ad-free web page too (unless you disabled the use of Cookie). The ad-free session will end after you close the browser, or if you do not re-visit the website for one day.
  7. After subscription, the purchase token, order ID and expiry time of your subscription will be stored in the Hiking Trail HK database. These are used to support ad-free web page and for user support purpose.
  8. After subscription expiration, the information of the subscription will be removed from the Hiking Trail HK database within 1 day, and will be removed from the backup store within 1 month. (Note that Google has different policies, so Google Play may still show your subscription history.)
One-time Purchase
  1. After purchase, ads will be removed from the Hiking Trail HK app, and trial features will be unlocked.
  2. You can only pay for one-time purchase in countries where Google services are accessible.

  5. After purchase, if you visit a Hiking Trail HK web page via the app, you can enjoy ad-free web page too (unless you disabled the use of Cookie). The ad-free session will end after you close the browser, or if you do not re-visit the website for one day.
