I am concerned about the policy that you are attemping to enact. the terms that you are using are very general in nature (ie. "precise geolocation data") and can define many different things in the surveying and geospatial industries. I strongly urge you to rewrite this policy to properly define industry terms and to create a policy that provides public privacy protection while not unintentionally including broader implications to either the surveying or geospatial industries.
