3. We may also obtain information, including Personal Information, from third-party sources to perform a contract with you, where we have a legal obligation to do so, or where our legitimate interests permit such collection. If we directly combine information from third parties with Personal Information we have collected, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information and handle it in accordance with this Statement. In addition, please note we may solicit third parties to collect Personal Information on our behalf such as our use of the Heruko platform provider and, in such cases, we instruct those third parties to comply with this Statement and all applicable data protection laws.

We do not knowingly seek or collect Personal Information from users under the age of 13 (a “Child” or “Children”).
In the event we learn we have collected Personal Information from a Child under age of 13, we will delete that Personal Information as quickly as possible. If you believe a Child may have provided us Personal Information, please contact us at privacy@QRCompanion.com

5. WHERE WE STORE AND PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal Information collected by QR Companion will be stored in the United State via Heroku with its web site located at https://www.heroku.com/ and controlled and processed in the United States. The storage location(s) are chosen in order to operate efficiently, to improve performance, and to create redundancies in order to protect the data in the event of an outage or other problem. We take steps to ensure that the data we collect under this Statement is processed according to the provisions of this Statement and the requirements of applicable law relating to the Personal Information or you as a data subject.
6. HOW WE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
QR Companion uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure a description of which is located at https://www.heroku.com/policy/security . While we implement safeguards designed to protect your Personal Information, no security system is impenetrable and, due to the inherent nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. You should take steps to protect the security of your user account information, login, and password.
7. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We retain Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide the applications and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other legitimate purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, enforcing our agreements, and improving our Applications/Apps and services. Because these needs can vary for different data types, the context of our interactions with you or your use of applications, actual data retention periods can vary significantly.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize the Personal Information or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), we then securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Most of your Personal Information may be accessed and corrected by simply logging into your account and accessing your profile. For any other changes, please contact us at privacy@QRCompanion.com.
