We keep track of the products you scan so we can award you prizes, provide coupons to you that matter to you, and show you advertising that's relevant to you based on the kind of products you have expressed interest in.
When you win prizes, we may celebrate your win by promoting your name, your photo, and your prize to the Eplio community. If we do not have a picture of you, and you win a prize, we will ask you for a picture so we can celebrate your win as described. If you register via Facebook, we will use your friend list to send invitations so you can have referrals). If you invite contacts, send gifts, or share via Twitter or email, we will use your phone and/or email address book and Twitter list to send those invitations and requests on your behalf.

Do we collect or share children's information?
No! Safeguarding the privacy of children is essential to us. That's why we prohibit anyone under the age of 13 from using Eplio, and we do not market or promote Eplio to anyone under 13. If we learn that personally identifiable information for anyone under 13 has been collected on Eplio without verifiable parental consent, we will delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of someone under the age of 13, and you learn that he or she has obtained a Eplio account, please contact us at email@example.com and request that we delete your child's personally identifiable information.
How do we keep your data secure?
We employ various operational, physical, and technical safeguards to secure your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no security or encryption method devised yet by man can be guaranteed to absolutely protect information from computer criminals or human error. Therefore, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or guarantee that such information cannot be accessed, changed, or eliminated by a breach of our safeguards. In the event of a security breach, we may attempt to contact you through the email address associated with your Eplio account. You may also, depending on your place of residence, have the legal right to receive such a notice in writing. To receive a written notice of a security breach, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
