Information Automatically Collected

We receive and store certain types of information when you interact with us. Our purpose is to allow the websites to work correctly, to evaluate use of the website, and to support website analytics and marketing campaigns. Some examples include:

  • We may collect technical information such as your IP address, your device operating system and browser type, the address of a referring website, if any, and the path you take through our websites. We use this technical information to, among other things, improve our products and services as well as to help us administer our website and diagnose technical problems.  Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information that does not personally identify you.

  • We may use “cookies” to recognize you as you use or return to our site. For more information about cookies, please see the section below “Cookies.”

Content of Scanned Materials

Scannx does not access the content of materials that are uploaded by you to the Scannx servers (for example, in the case of “Scan-to-Fax” or “Scan-to-Smartphone” services) and typically does not store such materials for more than twenty four (24) hours (except as otherwise indicated in the service).  However, Scannx may provide such materials to third parties in the circumstances listed below under “How We Share Your Information – Legal Requirements and Protection of Our Company and Others” and “How We Share Your Information – Business Transfers.”  Scannx may also in such cases store such materials beyond the normal indicated storage period.  In addition, Scannx may access and view such materials in response to user support requests.

How We Use Your Information

We use your information to offer and provide our products and services and to support our core business functions.  These include order or service fulfillment, internal business processes, marketing, authentication, loss and fraud prevention, public safety and legal functions.  Some examples include:

  • To fulfill your requests for Products and Services and communicate with you about those requests;

  • To register and service your account;

  • To administer surveys, sweepstakes, contests, giveaways and promotions;

  • To provide customer service and alert you to Product and Service information;

  • To help us improve and customise our Product and Service offerings, the Website, and advertising;

  • To send you information about the Products, Services, and promotions; and

  • To protect the security or integrity of the Website and our business.

How We Protect Your Information

To protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control we have implemented security measures on the Website.

When you place orders a secure server is employed. All information you input is encrypted by the secure server layer (SSL) before it is sent to us and all the customer data we collect is similarly protected against unauthorized access.

Scannx cannot be and is not responsible for unauthorized access to information by hackers or others who have obtained such access through illegal measures.

Scannx will never request your password, user name, credit card information, or other personal information through e-mail.  If you receive such an e-mail that purports to be from Scannx, please do not respond but please report it to us.

How We Share Your Information

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, Scannx will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or under the following limited circumstances.

Within Our Corporate Group

Scannx may share your personal information with other companies in our corporate group.

Legal Requirements and Protection of Our Company and Others

Scannx may also share your personal information for the following limited purposes:

  1. Comply with the law or with legal process, or with requests from law enforcement authorities;

  2. Protect and defend our rights and property;

  3. Protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the Scannx website; or

  4. Protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public.

With Search Providers

Google has been enabled to associate web and app browsing history with your Google account, and to use information from your Google account to personalize ads you see across the web, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data from Scannx to build and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. In order to support this feature, Google Analytics collects your Google-authenticated identifiers, which are Google’s personal data, and temporarily joins them to Scannx Google Analytics data in order to populate audiences.

Business Transfers

If Scannx is acquired by or merges with another company, Scannx may transfer personal information to that company (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings). In such an event, Scannx will notify you before your personal data is transferred if this information would become subject to a materially different privacy policy.

Service Providers

Scannx may from time to time share the information we collect from and about you with other third-parties that provide support services to us, or that help us market our products and services.  Examples are shipping vendors, product support vendors, billing and refund vendors, payment card processors, promoters and administrators of sweepstakes, contests, giveaways and promotions, and companies that help us improve our product and service offerings and the Website. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions.  These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.  In some cases Scannx and third-party service providers may share tracking information, including your IP address, and Scannx may provide information about your order to a website that has referred you to Scannx (and the referral network utilized by such website), to facilitate calculation of any commissions payable by Scannx.

Scannx may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, usage of Scannx Products and Services and related website information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.  A website traffic and user behavior auditing system operated by Hubspot may be used on this website. Please see the Hubspot website for information about Hubspot, including its privacy policy.
