Information We Collect

There are two basic categories of information we collect:

  • Information you provide.
  • Information we get when you use our services.

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Provide

When you interact with our Services, we collect information that you provide to us. For example, our Services require you to set up an account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as your name and phone number. You may also provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our Services, such as your business name, website, business phone number, address and logo. Other services, such as commerce products, may require you to provide us with a debit or credit card number and its associated account information.

Of course, you’ll also provide us with whatever information you send through our services, such as visiting hospitality businesses. Keep in mind that the users who view your QR code can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to your Everkard information as well: Don’t include or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

When you contact customer support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer or that we need to resolve your issues.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our Services, we collect information about which of those Services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you scanned a certain user. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our Services:

Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our Services. For example, we may collect information about:

  • how you interact with our Services, such as how you use our search functions.
  • how you communicate with other users.

Content Information. When you create your account, you choose the information that you wish to include with your profile. This is the data that you are agreeing to share with the public either using the scan facility or other mobile scanners. We also collect the date, time and location when you scan a QR Code. This data is collected by the app and provided to both you and the person you scanned with. By downloading the app and creating your profile, you agree to EverKard collecting this data and sharing it with other app users.

Device Information. We collect information from and about the devices you use. For example, we collect:

  • information about your hardware and software, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, advertising identifiers, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, browser type, language, battery level, and time zone;
  • information from device sensors, such as compasses, microphones and camera; and
  • information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, IP address, and signal strength.
  • Camera and Photos. The apps require access to the camera to scan QR codes of other users.
  • Location Information. When you use our business mode, we collect information about your business location to share with your customers.
  • Log Information. We also collect log information when you use our website, such as:
    • details about how you’ve used our services;
    • device information, such as your web browser type and language;
    • access times;
    • pages viewed;
    • IP address;
    • identifiers associated with cookies or other technologies that may uniquely identify your device or browsers
