Information we collect
Information you provide
When you purchase QRky cards we ask you for personal information, such as your name, email address, and Account ID. You'll be asked to create a password for your QRky account. You may also provide us with additional email addresses that we will link with your account. You may create a public profile that includes certain personal information and multimedia content, which can be accessed and viewed by users scanning your business cards and users accessing the site online via your QRky ID. If you choose to have QRky aggregate your activity from other websites, you must provide us with your username for each site. You should be aware that for certain sites, this may expose your email credentials. For some sites, we may ask for a password if it is required by that service to display the information on your QRky profile. If you choose to allow QRky to interact with third party systems you will be requested to provide login information for this third party account. Your password will not be stored on the QRky servers and will only be used for the request. When you provide friends' email addresses and the services they use, we store these in order to provide Services to you. We may also store your imported contact list if you choose. Any details retrieved will only be used to automate your use of QRky and will never be shared, sold or rented. When you invite friends to QRky or send messages through QRky, we collect and maintain information associated with those messages, including email addresses and content.
Contents of entries
The contents of any entry that you post directly to the Site, including any text, images, photos, videos and audio, are stored and maintained on our servers in order to publish these items and provide the Service. Your submitted content will be associated with your account.
When you send email or other communication to QRky, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
This is information that is commonly made available by web browsers and servers, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. QRky uses this information to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in QRky usage.
We maintain and process your personal information in order to provide your QRky account and access. When you send messages or invitations through QRky, your name, email address and personal QRky URL are identified in the message. We also use your name and email address to notify you of QRky updates. We store passwords for third-party services if it is required by that service to display the information on QRky. We do this in order to provide Services to you. We do not store passwords for third-party sites when you provide them as part of contact information retrieval, such as contacts import from Gmail. In addition to the above, QRky may process personal information for such purposes as: Sending you information related to your QRky account or other QRky services; Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services; Ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and Developing new services.
Choices for personal information
You may change your QRky account settings in the QRky "Settings" section. You may delete your entries through QRky, and this will take immediate effect in your account view. Residual copies of deleted entries remain in our database to keep them from accidentally reappearing in people's feeds. When an entry is deleted in QRky, it often is not deleted in the third-party site from which that entry came. QRky retains the original entry so that it is not added as a "new" item during a future crawl. If you wish to terminate your QRky account, you can write us on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you terminate your account, your profile and any entries you've made will be removed from the site. Your account will be deleted immediately, but it will remain in our backup systems. You can decline to submit personal information to our Service, in which case QRky may not be able to provide the Service to you.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We restrict access to personal information to QRky employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
QRky processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
Accessing and updating personal information
When you use QRky, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Links to Third Party Sites
This Policy only applies to the QRky website and services. We do not exercise control over the sites that our service links to. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to read such privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personally-identifying information, and QRky and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your personally-identifying information by any third party.
