Thank you for using Memorizer!
Memorizer helps you easily store, find and share all your everyday memories. To achieve this, we are working hard at Station F to provide you with the best mobile ergonomics and the best image, barcodes and text recognition technologies.
If you are tired of forgetting the name of the book you read just a year ago, the tricks that make your favorite recipes a success, the restaurants you absolutely want to visit in Lille or Marseille, the name of this bottle of wine you definitely need to have in your cellar… then Memorizer is for you.
And we’ll go further. Memorizer will help you work your memory with your own memories. Life goes by quickly, and in the end we are left with our memories, so let’s protect them!
On Memorizer, your memories belong to you. The only people who will be able to see some of your data will be the friends you selected to have access to all or part of your memories… at your convenience.
Welcome to Memorizer! For a better memory, a better culture, a better life.
When you use our services, you share your information with Memorizer, a service marketed by 1SPIRE SAS. 1SPIRE SAS is responsible for data processing.
To create your account we need your name, date of birth and phone number. They will allow you to login on Memorizer.
Your name is used as an identifier, your date of registration allows us to know if you are of the legal minimum age, your phone number is used to authenticate your account.
Your profile picture will allow you to enjoy a more personal experience with your loved ones.
Memorizer uses access to your photo gallery to make it easier for you to find your memories. You can refuse this access but it allows you to take full advantage of our services and technologies.
To offer you our services, we may have to transfer your information to third parties outside the European Union. More information on these topics can be find in sections 10, 11 and 15 of this article.
We have a data tracking and deletion policy in place, which specifies how long we store your information. As a general rule, we keep the information we collect as long as you actively use the Memorizer app. If you don’t open the app for more than 12 months, we’ll delete most of the data we’ve collected.
If you live in the European Union, you have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority of your country of residence. In France, you can file a complaint with the CNIL.
Finally, you have the right to give us instructions on how to process (delete or retain) your personal data in the event of death.
If you want to access your data, correct it, or ask us to delete it, you can send us an email to [email protected] at any time.
We collect three types of information as described in the following articles:
When you sign up for Memorizer, you voluntarily share certain information, including your name, email address, phone number, photos, notes, and other data you provide to us. You can also share accurate location data with us using your device’s settings, or through photos. We will also use your IP address, which is used to give your location approximately, even if you do not choose to share your precise position. This will allow you to sort your memories by location.
When you register on Memorizer, you give us a name, date of birth and phone number. During this process,we’ll send you an SMS with a code that authenticates your account (we think this method of verification is both simpler and safer compared to using a password). If you don’t receive an SMS verification code, you can get a phone call.
If you connect your Facebook, Apple, Google or other third-party accounts to Memorizer, we receive information from those accounts (e.g. your friends or contacts), and use it to enhance your Memorizer experience. This depends on the privacy policies or settings of these accounts.
When onboarding on the app (and then if not initially accepted) we offer you to share your photo gallery in order to benefit from The Memorizer technologies of automatic ranking of your memories.
Added photos from the app:
You can also add a memory directly to the app by taking a photo, scanning a barcode or using our manual form. You can also add a note or review.
We ask you to share your address book if you wish, so you can easily find your friends who are already on Memorizer. Inviting them then becomes easier. As a precaution only the phone numbers of your contacts arrive at our servers, and this after encryption operations (or technically “salting” and “hashing”). We protect the security of your address book’s data by making it unreadable, so that even internally, no one can access the contents of that data.
You can also provide us with information via the app chat or via email at [email protected].
When you use a website, mobile app or other Internet service, the generation and recording of information about the Internet and the activity of the electronic network is almost systematic. The same is true when you use Memorizer.
Here’s the type of information we can collect:
We can collect information that other users provide us about you when they use our services. For example, if another user allows us to collect the contents of their address book on their phone, and you are among their contacts, we may associate the data we collect with other information about you. And for example let you know that a friend has joined Memorizer.
We can also obtain information from third-party sources, and combine it with the data we collect directly through our services. For example, we may obtain information from third parties to help us identify your interests or retrieve your souvenir lists. This allows us to improve your experience and customize it.
We want to offer you the most comprehensive application using the photo gallery and your memories. That’s why we might use your information to:
As a company based in Europe, we have the right to use your personal data, only when certain conditions are met. At Memorizer we mainly use one of the following four:
Memorizer is a global service. By using our products or services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your country of residence, including the United States, for the purposes described in these rules. The protection of privacy and the rights of the authorities with regard to access to your personal information in these countries are not necessarily equivalent to those of your country of residence.
See the EEA Residents section to learn more about data transfers to and from this region.
Our goal is to offer you simple and useful options for personal data. If you have a Memorizer account, many of these commands can be customized in your settings. For example,you can:
We can share information about you as shown below.
Our services may contain links and redirects to third-party sites, or include integrations using libraries related to these services. These services may require you to provide them with information, including personal data. You recognize and accept that Memorizer cannot be held responsible for the way these third parties collect and use your information. We strongly encourage you to read the Privacy Policies of any third-party service you visit or use, including those with which you interact through our services.
We keep your data for as long as necessary to offer you the Service and to achieve the objectives outlined in this policy. This is also the case for anyone with whom we share your personal information and who provides services on our behalf. If we no longer need to use your information and must no longer keep it to meet our legal or regulatory obligations, we will remove them from our systems or make them anonymous so that we cannot identify you.
You can also specifically ask us to delete all of your data by contacting us at [email protected].
It is important to us that you keep control over your information. Below are some of the ways we have put in place for this purpose.
Our services are not for minors under the age of 13. That is why we do not knowingly collect data from anyone under the age of 13. In addition, you must be of the age required by your country of residence to consent to the processing of your data. For example, 15 years in France, 13 in Belgium or Norway and 16 in Germany.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that if your friends are outside the European Union, they will be able to see your information. Also, in the context of data transfers to third parties described in the “How do we share information” section, we can pass your data on to third parties and users outside the European Union, including in countries that do not necessarily have the same level of data protection as those within the European Union. Whenever we pass on your information to third parties outside the European Union, we ensure that adequate mechanisms are in place to protect them, such as the EU-US Privacy Shield or standard contractual clauses. More details in the table below.
|Objective||Type of data||Country||Recipient||Transfer mechanism|
|Data analysis||Data on app usage and user||United States||Data analytics providers||Typical contractual clauses|
|Data analysis||Anonymized geolocation data.||United States||Card provider||Privacy Shield|
|Data storage||All user data||United States||Storageservice provider||Typical contractual clauses|
|Internal communication||Chats, texts and images||United States||Discussion forum provider||Privacy Shield|
|Assistance||Messages from users||United States||Provider of support services||Privacy Shield|
For more questions, please contact us at [email protected].
Complaint filing? If you live in the European Union, you have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority of the Member State where you live. For example, if you live in France, you can file a complaint with the CNIL.
We may have to make changes to this policy. These will then be published on this page. If you continue to use Memorizer after these changes come into effect, you will in fact accept the new policy. If the changes are significant, we may notify you in advance or obtain your consent under the conditions of the law.
Thank you for using Memorizer and full of good memories to all!
