Paperwise, Inc. (“Paperwise,” “we” or “us”) has created this mobile app (the “App”) as a platform to scan, send and classify documents and images.
Paperwise is committed to maintaining your privacy. This Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) outlines our privacy practices, including the types of information that you may provide to us, how we use such information and the choices you have regarding our use of that information. We may collect the information through the App; when you purchase, register or use our products through your mobile devices; through our online support services; or through email messages that we send to you (collectively, including all online methods, the “Services”), or offline, such as when you attend a trade show or contact our customer service line. Our Privacy Notice applies to (i) individuals who purchase or register products through the App or otherwise participate in our Services (“Registered Users”), (ii) users of our products and (iii) individuals whose information we obtain offline (collectively, including Registered Users, users of products and other individuals, “you”).
1.1. The Types of Information You May Provide. Information you may provide or that we may collect from you while participating in our Services falls into three broad categories: (i) Personally Identifiable Information, (ii) Activities Information, and (iii) Anonymous Information.
1.2. Personally Identifiable Information. We use the term “Personally Identifiable Information” to mean any information that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, email address, telephone number.
1.3. Activities Information. We use the term “Activities Information” to refer to information collected by so-called “persistent identifiers” such as cookies and web beacons. Unlike Personally Identifiable Information, Activities Information does not directly identify a particular person; the information, however, is or can potentially be linked to a particular computer or device.
1.4. Anonymous Information. “Anonymous Information” is information that does not identify you, and may include statistical information concerning, for example, your use of our products and Services, your access to content on our App or the features on our App that you use most frequently.
