Put an address or postcode in & watch... use a public building if you don't trust the advertiser's assurance that they store no information.  I just sent it to a town hall in a nearby city...

I was daring and entered my own postcode - and yes, it brought up my street after a few frames of London landmarks which I assume are standard in all the ads as it's all tied up with the Olympics and 'Team GB'.   Clever stuff indeed!

It wouldn't work for me.  I live down a private road and there is no google street view available for my address.  I'll try my another postcode and see what I get.
