Your location

It was decided that it was best not to use your full postcode to place the location marker on the map
Instead I use the first half of the postcode (called the outcode)
I use a look up table which has stored only the first (of possibly many) postcodes with your outcode, together with latitude and longitude co-ordinates
Thus your exact location is randomised to a certain degree
If you want to check this, you can zoom into the map and see that your exact location, recorded on the map, will not be where you live, but hopefully, will be within a few miles. Near enough so the climactic conditions will not be different, but your anonymity will be preserved
