We are Scanventory Ltd, a company registered in Latvia under number 40103769662 and we want to bring you the best media engagement service available. To do this, we (and some of our advertising partners) ask for data about you and also create data about your use of our online products and/or services (including online game play) and on mobile platforms. This policy tells you what we do with that data.
1. What data do we collect and how?
We will sometimes ask you for personal data (such as your name, telephone number and date of birth) when you create a Scanventory registration or when you click to participate in certain activities (e.g. to take advantage of offers). We also automatically receive and track certain data about your mobile device (such as your device-type, software and language preference) or desktop interface, your taps and interests; and we may create a unique device or user ID for you so we can recognize you. In some cases we can automatically detect your location data, but often your operating system will require you to grant us permission to access your GPS; please refer to your device’s system settings regarding location services.
If you connect with Facebook or another social network via the Scanventory app, we may also receive some data from that network (e.g. your Facebook ID, name, profile picture, gender, age, locale and email address).
2. How do we use your personal data?
We may use your personal data for the following purposes:
(i) to provide you with services and the display of customized content, integration to our partner apps and targeted advertising both on our apps/websites and on other apps/websites that we advertise through,
(ii) to communicate with the Scanventory products and services and customer service issues,
(iii) to determine when you link from our app to one of our partner apps, so that we can monitor the level of traffic that we generate for our partner apps,
(iv) to ensure the technical functioning of our products and services,
(v) to protect Scanventory’s copyright,
(vi) to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use,
(vii) to comply with laws, requests from a government bodies or courts, or to respond to litigation, and
(viii) to enable us to use a third party to perform surveys measuring your experiences and use of our services.
We may also encrypt and/or aggregate your data with other users’ data in order to create statistics about the general use of the Scanventory apps and websites, which helps us to develop new products and services. We may also share this aggregated data with our business partners and third party advertisers.
3. Sharing data with third parties – key facts and how to opt-out
If you connect your Scanventory account to Facebook or Google+ your name and your profile picture may be shared with other Scanventory users. Further, your Facebook friends may be able to use the Scanventory apps to search for or view your Scanventory profile and the data contained therein, such as your tags and other activity including date/time. Go to the “preferences” screen to see your options to adjust the access levels to the data in your Scanventory profile but, again, if you don’t want a social network to get any access to your data, do not connect to that network via Scanventory.
In the event that ownership of Scanventory changes as a result of a merger, acquisition, or transfer to another company, your personal data may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your personal data, then Scanventory will provide you with appropriate notice.
4. Links to other websites
These cookies are necessary to allow us to operate the Scanventory websites and apps as you have requested. These cookies, for example, let us recognize what type of subscriber you are and then provide you with the services to which you are entitled.
These cookies are used by us or our business partners to analyse how the Scanventory websites and apps are used and how they are performing. These cookies do not let us identify users (as all user data is aggregated). They are also used to monitor when you link from our app to one of our partner apps so that we can check what levels of traffic we are generating for our partner apps.
These cookies let us operate certain functions of the Scanventory websites and apps in line with the choices you make. These cookies mean that we can “remember” you in-between visits – e.g. we will recognize your user name and remind you how you customised our services and what music you enjoyed on your last visit.
These cookies are used by us and our business partners to send you adverts when using the Scanventory websites and apps and to target those adverts to you and your interests. In doing this our business partners may use the profiles they have developed of other apps and websites that you have previously visited. These cookies may also help us and our business partners regulate the adverts you receive and measure its effectiveness. If we let our business partners place the cookies for advertising we do not give your name, email address or phone number to those business partners.

6. Sorry kids, over 13s only
We take our responsibilities to the online community very seriously. As such, if you are under the age of 13 we have to ask you not to use our apps or websites in any way. We don’t knowingly collect data from anyone under the age of 13 and we do not direct any of our products or services at this age group. If we become aware that we have inadvertently captured any personal data about a person who is under 13 years of age, then we will take the appropriate steps to shut down the account of that person.
