MPrint Mobile App Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the MPrint software application (“Application”) on a mobile device that was created by The University of Michigan. The Application includes the ability to release print jobs to nearby printers.

What information does the Application obtain and how is it used?
The Application obtains some usage data, generated by the Application, that we use to understand how the Application is being used. This data does not contain any personally identifying data, but simply reports things such as a successful authentication, the number of pending jobs retrieved, or mode of printer discovery (Bluetooth vs. QR Code). The Application does obtain (where it can) a unique device ID and a unique API Key, that are both used for authentication. The MPrint system will affiliate your uniqname with the device ID, to show you your list of pending print jobs.

User Provided Information – The Application obtains some information you provide when you download and register the Application. Registration is mandatory in order to be able to use the basic features of the Application. When you register with us and use the Application, you will provide your uniqname and UM password to log in to a secure, MPrint web page. Please note, neither the Application, nor the webpage, will retain your password in any form. Your uniqname will be saved along with a generated Device ID to enable the Application to show you information relevant to you.

Automatically Collected Information - In addition, the Application may collect certain information automatically, such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID, your mobile operating system, and information about the way you use the Application. This information will be sent back to us to analyze and better understand how the Application is used.

Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?
This Application does not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Application?
Information obtained by the Application is not shared with any third parties.

Opt-out of all information collection by uninstalling the Application
You can stop all collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

Data Retention Policy, Managing Your Information
We will retain User Provided data for as long as you use the Application and for a reasonable time thereafter. If you’d like us to delete User Provided Data that you have provided via the Application, please contact us a mprint@umich.edu and we will respond in a reasonable time. Please note that some or all of the User Provided Data may be required in order for the Application to function properly, and we may be required to retain certain information by law.

Children
We do not use the Application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at mprint@umich.edu. We will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.

Security
We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Application. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

Changes
This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy here. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
