Privacy Policy

STOWARE LLC is a camera, scanner & data storage company. Our services - including Stoware, and others that link to this Privacy Policy - provide fast and fun ways to stow any wares, and generate direct QR identifier to your data for a personal use or sharing with others. When you use these services, you’ll share some information with us. So, we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, who we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access and update your information. That’s why we’ve written this Privacy Policy. And it’s why we’ve tried to write it in a way that’s blissfully free of the legalese that often clouds these documents. Of course, if you still have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

Information we collect

There are 3 basic categories of information we collect:
• Information you choose to give us.
• Information we get when you use our services.
• Information we get from third parties.

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

Information you choose to give us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Stoware account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go by, a password, an email address, a phone number and your date of birth. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name or other useful identifying information. Other services, such as commerce products, may also require you to provide us with a debit or credit card number and its associated account information. 
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as Stoware QR-codes to your friends. Keep in mind that the users you send Stoware QR-codes, and any other content to 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 Stoware as well: don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share. 
It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: when you contact Customer Support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer.

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 watched a particular Stoware pack, saw a specific advert for a certain period of time, and sent a few Stoware QR-codes to friends. 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 the services. - how you communicate with other Stoware-Users. 
• Content information. We collect content you add on our services, and information about the content you create or provide. 
• Device information. We collect information from and about the devices you use. 
• Camera and photos. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera and photos. For example, you won’t be able to send Stoware QR-codes or upload photos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos. 
• Location information. When you use our services, we may collect information about your location. With your consent, we may also collect information about your precise location using methods that include GPS, wireless networks, cell towers, Wi-Fi access points and other sensors such as gyroscopes, accelerometers and compasses.
• Information collected by cookies and other technologies. Like most online services and mobile applications, we may use cookies and other technologies such as web beacons, web storage and unique advertising identifiers to collect information about your activity, browser and device. We may also use these technologies to collect information when you interact with services we offer through one of our partners, such as advertising and commerce features. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually remove or reject browser cookies through the settings on your browser or device. Keep in mind, though, that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our services. To learn more about how we use cookies and your choices, please check out our Cookie Policy. To learn more about how third parties use these technologies on our services, be sure to read the HYPERLINK ""Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others section of our Privacy Policy. 
• Log information. We also collect log information when you use our website. That information includes, among other things:
 - 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 browser. 
- pages you visit before or after navigating to our website.

Information we collect from third parties

Information we collect from third parties We may collect information that other users provide about you when they use our services. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phonebook - and you’re one of that user’s contacts - we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from our affiliates, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the information we collect through our services.

How we use information

What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: provide you with an amazing set of products and services that we improve relentlessly. Here are some of the ways we do that: 
• develop, operate, improve, deliver, maintain and protect our products and services. 
• send you communications, including by email. For example, we may use email to respond to support enquiries or to share information about our products, services and promotional offers that we think may interest you. 
• monitor and analyse trends and usage. 
• personalise the services by, among other things, suggesting friends or profile information, or customising the content we show you, including adverts. 
• contextualise your experience by, among other things, tagging your Memories content using your precise location data (if, of course, you’ve given us your consent to collect that data) and applying other labels based on the content. 
• provide and improve advert targeting and measurement, including through the use of your precise location data (again, if you’ve consented to us collecting that data), both on and off our services. See the Control over your information section below for more information about Snap Inc.’s advertising practices and your choices. 
• enhance the safety and security of our products and services. 
• verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorised or illegal activity. 
• use information we’ve collected from cookies and other technology to enhance the services and your experience with them.

Third-party content and integrations

Third-party content and integrations The services may also contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations, or offer a co-branded or third-party-branded service.

Analytics and advertising services

Provided by others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies on our services. These companies may collect information about how you use our services over time and combine it with similar information from other services and companies. This information may be used to, among other things, analyse and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand your online activity. Additionally, some companies, including our affiliates, may use information collected on our services to measure the performance of adverts and deliver more relevant adverts on behalf of us or other companies, including on third-party websites and apps. For more information about interest-based adverts and the choices available to you, go here.

Provided by us

Provided by us We may collect information about your activity on third-party services that use cookies and other technologies provided by us. We use this information to improve our advertising services, including measuring the performance of adverts and showing you more relevant adverts. Visit our Advertising Preferences page to learn more about Stoware advertising and how you can control the information used to select the adverts you see.

Control over your information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.

• Access and updates. We strive to let you access and update most of the personal information that we have about you. However, there are limits to the requests we’ll accommodate. We may reject a request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of other users, requires technical efforts that are disproportionate to the request, is repetitive, or is unlawful. You can access and update most of your basic account information right in the app by visiting the app’s Settings page. If you need to access, update or delete other personal information that we may have, you can put in a request here. Because your privacy is important to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let you access or update your personal information. We will try to update and access your information for free, but if it would require a disproportionate effort on our part, we may charge a fee. We will of course disclose the fee before we comply with your request. 

• Revoking permissions. If you change your mind about our ongoing ability to collect information from certain sources that you have already consented to, such as your phone book or location services, you can simply revoke your consent by changing the settings on your device, if your device offers those options. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality. 

• Account deletion. Although we hope you’ll remain a lifelong Stoware-User, if for some reason you ever want to delete your account, just go here. If you ask to delete your account, you will have up to 90 days to restore your account before we delete your information from our servers. During this period of time, your account will not be visible to other Stoware-Users. 

• Advertising preferences. We try to show you adverts that we think will be relevant to your interests. If you would like to modify the information we and our advertising partners use to select these adverts, go here to learn about the choices available to you. 

• Communicating with other Stoware-Users. It’s also important to us that you stay in control over whom you communicate with. For more information about how to control your privacy settings, check out our Support Site.

Users outside the United States of America

Users outside the United States of America Although we welcome Stoware-Users from all over the world, keep in mind that no matter where you live or where you happen to use our services, your information may be shared within the STOWARE LLC family of companies. This means that we may collect your personal information from, transfer it to, and store and process it in the United States and other countries outside of where you live.


Our services are not intended for - and we don’t direct them to - anyone under 13. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we’ll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website and mobile application. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites’ home pages or providing you with an in-app notification).
