The answer is yes and its not your exact location. There are no addresses gathered or can be, only latitude and longitude of your ISP.
As with most trackers, they offer visitors IP, we do not. There is no way to tell who is who on a marker so you're 100% safe.
There are many private and public trackers out there that offer a great deal of information about anyone, our online counter only offers basic information
for you to better understand your visitors.
Why did we get rid of Google Maps? The main reason is on September 20th, 2013 Google will begin charging for Map loads for sites that load the Google maps over 25,000 times daily. We easily reach that number and the cost is outrageous to use something that was free at one time. We cannot afford the cost, so we went with another map that we can host and it will not cost us. The new map does not have borders around the states so we added in the hover over text the states name. We hope to get the borders added soon. Also Google Maps was a bit over kill for what we were using it for, so now the new icons don't pen point a location even though it was never 100% accurate only city accurate for the most part. We did try contacting Google multiple times but never got a response to work out a deal.
