Please read the following to learn more about how we use and disclose information collected through the Post-it® App (“App”), including personal information.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to our End User License Agreement, which is available at (PDF, 156 KB).

  • About the Post-it® App

    The App gathers technical information about how you use the app. This allows the App to evaluate the usefulness of App features to users, and to make improvements to the App.

  • What information does the App collect?

    The App collects the following types of information:

    • Technical data, such as information about your usage of the App (e.g., features used, content viewed, dates and times of interactions) and technical data about your device, such as operating system, model, etc. The App collects this technical data automatically when you download the App and as you use it.
    • Location information, meaning precise real-time location information collected using your device's GPS technology. The App uses location information to provide you with a record of where you captured physical Post-it® Notes with the App. This location information is displayed in the App, and included in export formats such as PowerPoint® and PDF. Please note that we will NOT access precise location information from your device unless you grant the App permission to do so; if you do not grant the App permission to access precise location information, your captures will not be stored with location information and no location information will be added to exported formats.

    3M uses third-party analytics services to collect the technical data above, including services provided by Flurry, Inc., a subsidiary of Oath (Americas) Inc. (“Flurry”), and Mixpanel, Inc. (“Mixpanel”). Please use the following links for more information about how Flurry and Mixpanel collect and use data when you visit their partners’ websites or apps:

    3M may share any information it collects with:

    • Service providers or business partners who work on our behalf or partner with 3M to provide or improve the App or related products, services, or events, provided that such service providers or business partners may not use any personal information we share with them for their own independent purposes (except on an aggregated, deidentified basis). Such service providers and business partners may include, but are not necessarily limited to, Flurry and Mixpanel (as described above).
