What we collect

We may collect the following information:

  • Title, First Name, Last Name, Job Title
  • Company name and contact information including email address
  • Other information relevant to The Badge Scanner users


How we collect it

The Badge Scanner app uses the camera function of a mobile device to take an image (picture) of the bar code on the badge of an event attendee. The image of the bar code is converted into the alpha numeric unique registration number of the event attendee and this number is stored in the The Badge Scanner app. The image (picture) is immediately removed for the app and is not stored in any graphics format.

What we do with the information gathered

The above information has been collected by the official registration company for the event you have attended and passed to us for uploading into the web hosted database for that event.

The Badge Scanner users are generally the personnel of companies exhibiting at the event and who have used the The Badge Scanner app to scan the bar code on the badge you were wearing at the event. This bar code is a unique number relating to your personal record in the database of attendees at the event.

The Badge Scanner users may then download the data on any person they have scanned at the event (generally sales leads for the products/services exhibited by the exhibiting company at the event) so that they may contact them to follow up on their interest in their company's product or service.

The complete database of event attendees uploaded to The Badge Scanner is removed from the website 3 months after the event closes.
