Privacy Policy
Privacy Policy
Effective Date: Dec 09, 2020

Your privacy is vital to Minewtag, so we've developed a privacy policy covering how we collect, use, disclose, and transfer your personal information. We take your privacy as seriously as you do and will only collect the information necessary to provide you with the best experience.

 

As you review our policy, keep in mind that it applies to Shenzhen Minew Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Minewtag," "We," "Us") website, mobile apps, and all other associated services that we provide ("Services").

 

1. Information Minewtag Collects

 

In this Privacy Policy, the term "Personal Information" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to a name, an identification number, or in certain circumstances, location information, an IP address or the unique identifier allocated to each Minewtag device. Specifically, we collect the following information from you, which may include Personal Information.

 

A. Placing an order

 

i. Contact information

When you place an order on our website, you'll need to provide an e-mail address, a first and last name, and a shipping address.

 

ii. Payment Information

To complete your order on our website, you'll need to provide payment information, such as your credit card or PayPal account. This information is required to process your order and will not be stored on our servers.

 

B. Registering for the mobile app

You'll need to use a valid e-mail address and create a password to open an account for services on the Minewtag’s online apps. You can choose whether or not you'd like to provide your first and last name. We do not expose your personal information to other users or make your account information available to any third parties (in any way) that could identify you without your prior consent.

 

C. Connecting with Social Networks

When you create a Minewtag account, you may be able to connect and interact with a third-party social networking service ("Social Network)"), such as Facebook or Twitter. If you decide to join Social Network when using our Services, we can collect the personal information you have already made public on your Social Network account. You can manage this information in the privacy settings of each Social Network.

 

D.Information from Your Use of the Services

i. Minewtag ID, Name, and Photograph 

When you activate Minewtag apps, a unique identifier (or Minewtag ID) will be associated with your account. If you choose to name your tags or add a photo, your account will also include this information.

 

ii. Location Information

Minewtag is designed to tell you where your items are. It's necessary to collect data about your location. We use the term "Location Information" to refer to your phone or device's combined location data and your ESLs.

 

While the app is running on your device, it periodically transmits your location information. It allows us to show your location and the last place your tags were seen on your device. It is one of the primary ways electronic tags help you find your lost items.

 

We may also collect and update location information for your ESLs anonymously from other ESL users running the app within the Bluetooth range of your device. We do this to provide you with the most recent and accurate location of your tags, even if they are out of your devices' Bluetooth range. The Location Information is reported anonymously and does not identify the owner of an e-tag to others.

 

If you use a computer, phone, or other devices to visit our website or help center, we use the IP address of that computer or device to determine an approximate location. We do this so that we can provide you with a better customer service experience.

 

We use your Location Information to provide the Services and may use your Location Information to promote the Services or provide you with offers. However, your location information will never be shared with other users unless you share it yourself.

 

iii. Mobile Application Usage Information

We track how and how often you use our Services. We also collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use it for Services, including your device's model, operating system type, version, and the dates and times of your requests. We use this information to provide you with optimal services and support and collect anonymous statistics that help us understand our user base.

 

E.Information Collected Through Minewtag's Support Services

We provide support services via live chat on our website, e-mail request submissions, recorded outbound telephone calls, and direct e-mail. We collect any Personal Information you may choose to provide to our customer care team in the process. But it is not limited to your name, e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address. We may use and process your Personal Information, including location information, to handle your support request and provide you with the best support possible.

 

2. Cookies and Other Web Technologies

 

A. Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer's hard drive or onto your mobile device's memory— if your browser is set to accept cookies. Like many other online services, cookies and other tools like them help us collect and understand how you use our services.

 

Although most internet browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your settings or use third-party tools to prompt you before accepting cookies from the websites you choose to visit or refuse cookies altogether. You can even delete them through your browser. Most browsers also have settings to prevent them from accepting new cookies, notify you when you receive a new cookie or delete or disable cookies altogether. However, some parts of our Services may not work for you if you disable cookies.

 

B. How We Use Cookies

We use cookie technology in various ways to help make it easier for you to use our Services. For example, we use cookies to remember you when you return to our website, identify you when you sign-in, authenticate your access, keep track of your in-app specified preferences or choices, tailor content to you or geographic region, display a personalized browsing history, and/or to provide specific technical support.

 

We may also use cookies to gauge site usage, conduct research, and diagnostics to improve the products and services, and help us analyze general web traffic.

 

The cookies expire after they have fulfilled their purposes. Some cookies expire when you close your browser (i.e., session cookies) or after a set period (i.e., persistent cookies). The expiration time of cookies that are placed by third parties (explained below) is determined by the third party, not us.

 

C. Web Beacons

 

Web beacons (also known as web bugs, pixel tags, or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies stored on the user's hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail).

 

D. Do Not Track

While our website and Minewtag apps at this time do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, such as "do not track" instructions, you can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies through your web browser, as indicated above.

We utilize Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, Inc. (that we use), to gather information about how users and visitors engage with our Site and Services. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

 

We also use Mixpanel to provide us with analytics data regarding your interactions with our Services.

These outside services may also collect information about your use of other websites over time. Since we do not link any Personal Information that you provide to us within the app to the information we store within the third-party analytics software, this additional information is only analyzed in a way that cannot identify you.

 

B. Measurement Services and Ad Targeting

We may use tools offered by third-party services, such as Facebook, to send data about actions users take on the Services. These third-party services may use such data to provide measurement services to electronic tags or target ads.

C. Social Plugins and Social Widgets

We may use social plugins, widgets, and other features (each, a "Social Feature") made available by and/or access third-party Social Networks.
