Information Collection And Use

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Data"). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

  • Financial data
  • Electronic mail data
  • Email address
  • First name and last name
  • Phone number
  • Address, State, Province, ZIP/Postal code, City
  • Cookies and Usage Data

Financial Data

The primary function of the Service is the collection, analysis, classification and processing of financial documents such as invoices, receipts, bills and credit notes ("Financial Documents"). When you manually upload documents or connect your e-mail box to the Service, your data is shared with us. For manually uploaded documents, any document you upload is shared with us. For more information about information collected from your e-mail box, please see the Electronic Mail Data section elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

We use your Financial Documents in order to help you, or your bookkeeper or client, prepare tax documents. This includes analyzing the Financial Documents, removing duplicates, extracting amount, vendor and item information from each such document, and so forth. Such analysis includes our own proprietary algorithm, as well as 3rd-party services operated by Amazon Web Services and Google, Inc. Financial Documents are used for the sole purpose of rendering the service as described, as well as limited debugging and quality assurance purposes, when such circumstances arise, and only when approved in advance and in writing, by an authorized officer of the company.

Documents are stored in a highly-secure server facility operated by Amazon Web Services, protected by a wide range of security measures, including passwords, security tokens, bank-level encryption and others.

The default setting of the Service is that no sharing with any 3rd-party, with the limited exception of the 3rd-parties listed above and for the purpose listed above, takes place. The Service does, however, allow you to explicitly share, or download and share, Financial Documents with your client, bookkeeper, employee, person or organization, for further processing. If, however, you do not elect to share, or download and share your data, it will not be shared without your explicit consent.

Electronic Mail Data

In order to help you find Financial Documents, you may elect to use the "Connect to E-mail" feature. This feature, once authorized by you ("Authorization" hereinafter), will be able to access and fetch Financial Documents from your e-mail box automatically. Please be advised that the Authorization grantes us read-only access to all messages sent, received and written since the email box was created. We use the Authorization subject to the following policy:

  • We only retrieve documents that we believe, using our proprietary algorithm, to be Financial Documents;
  • From time to time, the Service may retrieve a document believed to be a Financial Documents, even though it is not. In such cases, the document will be displayed to you and you will have the ability to remove it from the Service;
  • Documents collected, including all Financial Documents, are used, stored and shared in the manner described above for all other Financial Documents added to the Service.
The specific permissions requested during the Authorization process vary according to your e-mail service provider. The following overview is a summary of the permissions requested and the reason for requesting them, according to each service provider:

When such "false positives" are encountered, we will make every reasonable effort to avoid fetching such messages in the future.
