Beer Goggles Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application Beer Goggles (Application) for mobile devices. Beer Goggles uses Machine Learning and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to allow you to take a photo of a restaurant tap list with your phone, and get searchable links to the drinks on the list.

Information Beer Goggles collects and how we use it

Beer Goggles collects photos you intentionally submit for processing by the application. Beer Goggles stores photos uploaded to its service and the text that is extracted from those photos. This information is used to improve our product and service, and is never shared with third parties.

Beer Goggles allows users to register for an account by providing an email address or through a text message to their mobile phone number. If you create an account, Beer Goggles stores your email or phone number as part of your account data.

Beer Goggles uses the Google Firebase service to store user-provided data. The privacy policy for Google Firebase can be found here.

Automatically Collected Information

Beer Goggles uses third-party applications (including, but not limited to, Google Analytics for Firebase) to collect aggregate, anonymous usage information about how you use the app. This information may include but is not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile devices unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Application. No personally-identifiable information is provided to third parties.

In order to maintain Beer Goggles as a free service, we reserve the right to include advertisements in the application.

Beer Goggles does not leverage any device geolocation functionality for its service. Please be aware that many mobile device cameras store the latitude and longitude where a specific photo was taken as part of the metadata of the photo itself. If your mobile device includes this data in a photo you transmit to Beer Goggles, our servers will have access to this metadata. The metadata does not identify your current location; only the location where the photo was taken. Beer Goggles does not currently inspect this information even if it is included in a photo. If we do decide to make use of photo location metadata in the future, we will update our privacy policy to reflect this and provide notice in the application.
