QwkBuy App Quality Assurance
The QwkBuy app continually monitors its “health”. If the app detects a malfunction or other anomaly, the app will send information back to our servers. The information it sends back can be structured data or a “memory dump”, and may include your name, smart phone location and information on what you were trying to buy at the time of the abnormal event. The information may transit a partner’s server(s). The information collected in this manner will be deleted in a reasonable time after analysis. This information will not be shared.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we assume you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask you for personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no. Saying no is called "opting out". By opting out, you can tell us not to collect the information and/or not to share it with other companies.
