It also includes information about how you have interacted with our Services such as the time and frequency of the interactions, dwell time and the devices and operating systems used to access the Services, in order to understand better the user journey and the friction points to correct.
If the item scanned is connected to a client of ours, all information about the scan interactions is combined and shared with them in a way that doesn’t identify any individuals, so that they can better understand the performance of the experience.
