Privacy Policy

Welcome to Envision ("Envision," "we," "us" or "our"). Envision provides a fast and an accurate image recognition utility. After an image is taken, using the built in camera capture feature, it then defines the image for the user.

  • Our Privacy Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service ("Users").
  • Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, website, and any software provided on or in connection with Envision services (collectively, the "Service"), and your choices about the collection and use of your information
  • By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to take, define, and share images ("User Content"), by the Service. User content may be encrypted and stored in our cloud services, to provide our Users with back up of their content. We do not access, review or monitor User Content. We do not use User Content or process it in any way other than providing the User with encrypted backing of the data, except as provided under section 3 (processing User Content).


We collect the following types of information.

Information you provide us directly:

Communications between you and Envision by email. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related emails. If you have given permission, we can send you our newsletter by email. Note that for the newsletter there is an unsubscribe option included with which you can indicate that you are no longer interested in our newsletter.

Analytics information:

We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

Cookies and similar technologies:

If you have given permission, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Envision and provide features to you, when you visit the Service. We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

Log file information:

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the web page or app is downloaded to your browser or device.

When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service

Device identifiers:

When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Envision.

A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.


Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted.


In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use information that we receive to:

  • provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Service
  • develop and test new products and features
  • monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns
  • diagnose or fix technology problems
  • automatically update the Envision application on your device
  • provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing


Envision may process User Content only if the following applies:

The User concerned has given his/her consent for one or more specific purposes (“opt-in”). Envision is then allowed to process the User Content until the User objects to such processing (“opt-out”). 

The aforementioned specific purposes are (exhaustive list): 

  • processing is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the User and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof (e.g. fixing bugs)
  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which Envision is subject;
  • processing is necessary for improving the Envision Services. 


We will not rent or sell your private contact information, such as username, user ID, device ID, email address, etc. to third parties outside Envision (or the group of companies of which Envision is a part) without your consent, except as noted in this Policy.

Parties with whom we may share your information:

  • We may share your information as well as information from tools like cookies, log files, and device identifiers and location data (such as usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.), with organizations that help us provide the Service to you ("Service Providers"). Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service under reasonable confidentiality terms.
  • We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.
  • We may license the image data to outside companies or organizations for their internal use only. No user IDs or any other personally identifying metadata will ever be attached along with the images.
  • We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

What happens in the event of a change of control:

If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of Envision or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your information such as name and email address, User Content and any other information collected through the Service may be among the items sold or transferred. You will continue to own your User Content. The buyer or transferee will have to honor the commitments we have made in this Privacy Policy.

Instances where we may be required to share your information:

Envision will disclose your information where required to do so by law or by judicial process or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to:

  • comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement
  • enforce our Terms of Use
  • protect the security or integrity of our Service
  • exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Envision, our Users or others
