About Scantrust

Scantrust operates a platform for tagging and tracking inventories using QR codes or other identifiers, such as NFC, and publishes the App which collects location and product information that is stored, e.g. embedded in QR codes. Scantrust also operates software based consumer engagement and loyalty solutions that connect product companies with users and purchasers of their products.


Information Collection and Use

Personal Information
When you register for our Services, you provide personal data about yourself that may include your name, email address, phone number, tax ID number, physical address, and other information that can directly identify you individually (collectively, “Personal Information”). If the Services include rights for multiple users (“Users”), we may collect Personal Information that they provide as well.

We also collect Personal Information if you provide it to us to receive newsletters or when requesting support, and we share that with our newsletter and customer support providers. Some of the data we collect is not Personal Information on its own, such as IP address or exact latitude and longitude coordinates, but where we can associate that information with other personal data (like your name or email address), we treat it as Personal Information.

We use Personal Information only to provide the Services to you and for the purposes for which you’ve provided it, such as to receive support or newsletters, and to enable your use of the App and the Site.

Anonymous Data

The Site, the Services and the App also collect anonymous information (collectively, “Anonymous Data”) which includes: (i) information about the features of the Site, the Services and/or the Apps that you’ve used and the times when you’ve used them, along with cookie information (described below), (ii) information available from identifiers scanned with the App, the time of scans, and the number of times you use the App; and (iii) device information, such as device type, device identifiers (if available), and general location information (e.g. city or country), and (iv) general information such as language settings, operating system type; page views, the number of times the Site is visited, IP address, browser type and App version number. We may use and share Anonymous Data for any purpose.

Platform Content

If you use our Services, you or your Users may provide, and we may collect, information as agreed upon between you and Scantrust in an agreement. Ownership and use of such information is as set forth in such agreement (each a “Platform Agreement”).

Cookies & Tracking

To provide you with a better experience, we may store information about you and/or Users in a cookie (a small file that is sent by our web server to a device being used to access or use the Services), which we can access when you or the relevant User makes return visits to the Site or our Services, or uses the App. Storing cookies is a practice where a service needs to remember its users’ preferences, and we use cookies to keep track of our users’ choices and to distinguish them from other users of Our services. It helps provide users with a better experience. These cookies are valid for 1 week.

Please note third parties (e.g. providers of external services like web traffic analysis) may use cookies over which we have no control. If you would like to delete any cookies that are already on a device, you need to locate the file or directory that the cookies are stored in and take the required action. If you want to block them, click “Help” in the browser menu on the relevant device to find out how to do this. Further information about deleting or controlling cookies is available at www.aboutcookies.org or at www.youronlinechoices.com.

We use analytics providers such as Google Analytics, Crazy Egg, Sentry, Hubspot, and Fabric (“Analytics Tools”), which use cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze about use of the Services and App and report on activities and trends. We use that information to collect Anonymous Data, which we use as provided above. That information is also used by the Analytics Tools providers according to their privacy policies. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

As noted above, (i) we may share Anonymous Data for any purpose; (ii) we may share Personal Information for the purpose of providing support; and (iii) we may share information as agreed upon by you in a Platform Agreement.

We do not rent, sell or share any Personal Information for any other purpose except as expressly agreed upon by you and for the following circumstances:

Comment

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the vistor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

More on how long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile.
