Canmore Museum - Cabinet of Curiosities Privacy Policy



The developer Colin Fearing built the “Canmore Museum - Cabinet of Curiosities AR” as a free app in collaboration with the Canmore Museum. This experimental SERVICE is provided by the developer at no cost and is intended for use strictly “as is”.  Colin Fearing makes no representation as to the performance, operation, usability or stability of this free service. 


The app requires access to your phone’s live camera in order to find an appropriate flat surface to place virtual models. It does not require any other permissions from your device. 


Information Collection and Use

Live images from the camera are processed using Google’s ARCore Augmented Reality application programming interface (API). They are not stored or sent off the phone. The app does not directly see the raw camera image, but only an ARCore representation of an available flat surface. 


The app does not collect, use, or store any personally identifiable data. 


There is no persistent information stored by the app, including the scavenger hunt section - if you close your app you will need to recollect your objects. 


The app does not require the internet. 



Third Party Services  

The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you:

Google Play Services collects certain log data that allows developers to fix crashes. This log data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing the Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics. The developer may use this data to improve the service by fixing crashes and improving compatibility. 



Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device's internal memory.


This Service does not use these cookies explicitly. However, the app uses Google Play Services code and libraries that may use cookies to collect information and improve their services. You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies and know when a cookie is being sent to your device. If you choose to refuse third-party cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of this Service.


Links to Other Sites

This Service may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by me. Therefore, I strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites. I have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.


Changes to This Privacy Policy

The developer may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, you are advised to review this page periodically for any changes. I will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.


This policy is effective as of 2020-08-21.
