Privacy Policy

QRTalk uses end-to-end encryption to provide private, secure, temporary and anonymous messaging to users worldwide (“Services”). Your messages and media contents are always encrypted, so they can never be shared or viewed by anyone but yourself and the intended recipients.

Information you provide

Account Information. When you create a QRTalk account, you register a anonymous pseudo-random user-id. Anonymous user-ids are used to provide our Services to you and other QRTalk users. You may optionally add other information to your account and contacts, such as a profile name and avatar picture. This optional information is stored on your device only and never transmitted to our servers or other QRTalk users.

Messages. QRTalk cannot decrypt or otherwise access the content of your messages. QRTalk queues end-to-end encrypted messages on its servers for delivery to devices that are temporarily offline, up to a maximum of 7 days. Your message history is stored on your own device only.

Additional technical information stored on our servers is limited to public encryption keys, device types (e.g. Android, iPhone, …) and cloud-to-device messaging registration tokens, and is necessary to transmit messages over the Internet. QRTalk limits this additional technical information to the bare minimum required to operate the Services.

Contacts. QRTalk does not access your device address book. Your contacts list is made up of anonymous user-ids that have no relation at all with account owners.

User Support. If you contact QRTalk User Support, any personal data you may share with us is kept only for the purposes of researching the issue and contacting you about your case.

Managing your information. QRTalk never access any personal information on devices nor stores access log data on servers. Since all messages and media contents are encrypted end-to-end we cannot offer any support related to data recovery or backup.

Information we may share

Third Parties. We do not share any information with third parties to provide our Services.
