5. Our operations
ReceiptsMinder enables the provision and transmission of electronic receipts between our Partners and End Users. Our aim is to decrease the amount of paper receipts and to enable business related communication between our Partners and End Users based on electronic receipts. ReceiptsMinder enables, in particular, the following: Partners may provide electronic receipts to be forwarded by us to our End Users in accordance with this Privacy Notice and our terms and conditions.
Patterns may add to electronic receipts or otherwise send various marketing messages with our assistance to be displayed to End Users in accordance with the marketing legislation applicable from time to time.
ReceiptsMinder may provide the Partners with anonymous statistical information about End Users who have transacted with the Partner in question, but always in such a format that it is not possible to identify individual End Users. ReceiptsMinder’s operation is based on that by means personal identifier (e.g. mobile phone number or email address) we can (i) reliably identify the electronic receipts of our End Users from the other electronic receipts provided by Partners using ReceiptsMinder, (ii) to store said receipts in our service, accessible to our End Users at our Platform, and (iii) to transmit the electronic receipts onwards in the manner agreed with the End User, unless the Partners who produced the receipt has not explicitly prohibited the transmission of its receipts to certain Partner Applications. Our End Users will see their electronic receipts transmitted by us in our service, as well as accessible to our End Users at our platform.
If an electronic receipt provided to us by a Partner does not concern our End Users, we will permanently delete the said receipt within five (5) business days after having received it without further processing. The receipts that concern our End Users are processed by us in accordance with our terms and conditions and this Privacy Notice.
Additionally, please note that although the electronic receipts produced by the Partners that relate to electronic receipts are based on ReceiptsMinder’s operations and the electronic receipts transmitted by us, the Partners are companies independent from ReceiptsMinder and always responsible for the legality of their own activities. The Partner is therefore always responsible for providing to you a receipt of your transaction. We therefore recommend that you carefully read the terms and conditions of the relevant Partner (inlcuding Merchant) and their privacy notices.

8. To whom is your data transmitted or disclosed?
We transmit electronic receipts to our Partners (via our Platform) and, if our End Users so wish, to their personal communication tools (such as End User’s email address or direct download in our Platform). We will transmit promotional material (added to our Platfrom) by Business Clients to the End Users along with business logo and other material e.g. Business Name, address and other information present in receipt.
We process personal data also by resorting to services of third parties. For example, we use third party customer information systems to manage and communicate with our End Users. Correspondingly, we utilize third party data storage services to store and back up the data we process. Therefore, these third parties have access to the personal data we process. The said third parties act as processors of personal data and are not allowed to use the data for their own purposes.
