This Privacy Policy applies to our collection, use and sharing of your personal information when you visit our website at www.6d.ai or any other website to which we post this privacy policy (the “Sites”); use our services through a developer account; or receive our marketing communications.

We provide a software developer kit to enhance augmented reality (“AR”) applications. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you collect, use or share not on the 6D.ai platform. Further, this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information collected through sample applications that we have not created. You should contact the relevant application developer if you have questions, concerns or requests regarding personal information that a non-6D.ai application handles.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to 6D.ai’s processing of employee or contractor data or your offline dealings with us.

We provide important information for individuals located in the European Union here.

To create anonymous, aggregated, or de-identified data. We may create aggregated, anonymous or de-identified data from your personal information and other individuals whose personal information we collect. We make personal information into anonymous data by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable. We may use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to understand and improve our Service and for other lawful business purposes.

For compliance, fraud prevention and safety. We may use your personal information as we believe appropriate to (a) investigate violations of and enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Sites; (b) protect our, your or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by making and defending legal claims); and (c) protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity.

For compliance with law.

We do not share your personal information with third parties without your consent, except in the following circumstances:

Affiliates and partners. We may disclose your personal information to our corporate parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and partners for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Other developers. We will share your Personal Information with other developers who are members of your corporate developer account solely for the purpose of providing the Service. Content you submit to the Sites through the Service for public posting will be viewable by the Sites’ others developers.

Service providers. We may share your personal information with third-party companies and individuals as needed for them to provide us with services that help us with our business activities and to provide the Service (such as single sign-on providers, payment-service providers, customer support, hosting and storage, website analytics, email delivery, marketing/advertising, technical support, quality assurance, database management services and legal and other professional advice). These third parties will be given limited access to your personal information that is reasonably necessary for them to provide their services. For online payments, we use a payment service provider. We do not record or maintain your credit card information and we will share transaction data with our payment service providers only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing your payments, refunding such payments and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments and refunds.

For legal reasons. We may disclose your personal information as we believe appropriate to government or law enforcement officials or private parties for the purposes described above under the following sections: For compliance, fraud prevention and safety and For compliance with law.

Professional advisors. We may disclose your Personal Information to professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.

Business transfers. We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, including your personal information, in connection with a business deal (or potential business deal) such as a corporate divestiture, merger, consolidation, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy or dissolution.

Your Choices

Access or update your username. Service account holders may review or update information in their registration profile by logging into their account or contacting us at gdpr@6d.ai.

Opt out of marketing. You may opt out of marketing-related emails by following the unsubscribe instructions in the email. You may continue to receive Service-related and other non-marketing emails.

Targeted advertising. Some of the business partners that collect information about developers’ activities on our Sites may be members of organizations or programs that provide choices to individuals regarding the use of their browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising. Developers may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking here or the Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking “Choices” (or similarly titled link). European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking “Choices” (or similarly-titled link).

Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above.

If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to opt out, not all companies that serve online behavioural advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive some cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed.

Cookies and Similar Technologies. We may allow service providers and other third parties to use cookies and similar technologies to track your browsing activity over time and across the Service and third party websites. For more details, see our Cookie Policy. Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” or similar signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit https://www.allaboutdnt.com.

Choosing not to share your personal information. Where we are required by law to collect your personal information, or where we need your personal information in order to provide the Service or the Sites to you, if you do not provide this information when requested (or you later ask to delete it), we may not be able to provide you with our Service. We will tell you what information you must provide to receive the Service by designating it as required in or on the Sites or through other appropriate means.

Other Important Privacy Information

Third-party sites and services. The Sites may contain links to other websites and services operated by third parties. These links are not an endorsement of, or representation that we are affiliated with, any third party. We do not control third-party websites, applications or services, and are not responsible for their actions. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding their collection, use and sharing of your personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the other websites you visit and services you use.

Security practices. The security of your personal information is important to us. We employ a number of organizational, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we collect. However, security risk is inherent in all internet and information technologies and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.

International transfers. We are headquartered in the United States and have service providers in other countries, and your personal information may be collected, used and stored in the United States or other locations outside of your home country. Privacy laws in the locations where we handle your personal information may not be as protective as the privacy laws in your home country.

European Union developers should read the important information provided here about transfer of personal information outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

Children. The Service is not directed at, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from, anyone under the age of 16. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16, we will attempt to delete that information as soon as reasonably practicable.

Customer-administered accounts. Where the Service is provided to you through your employer or another organization, that organization is the administrator of the Service. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of these organizations, which have their own privacy policies. Please note that your organization’s administrator may be able to:

  • require you to reset your account password;
  • restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Service;
  • access information in and about your account;
  • access or retain information stored as part of your account;
  • change the email address associated with your account;
  • change your information, including profile information; and
  • restrict your ability to edit, restrict, modify or delete information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy we will post them on the Sites and indicate the effective date of the change. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy we will notify you by email or through the Service. Any modifications to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon our posting of the new terms and/or upon implementation of the new changes on the Sites (or as otherwise indicated at the time of posting). In all cases, your continued use of the Sites after the positing of any modified Privacy Policy indicates your acceptance of modified Privacy Policy’s terms.

You have entered a contract with us and we need to use your personal information to provide services you have requested or take steps that you request prior to providing the Service.

For research and development
To send you marketing communications
To create anonymous data
For compliance, fraud prevention and safety

These activities constitute our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

When we no longer require the personal information we have otherwise collected about you, we will dissociate such information from the information attached to your content. In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you), in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

This Cookie Policy explains how 6D.ai (“6D.ai”, “we ”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and similar tracking technologies when you visit our website at www.6d.ai or any other site to which we post this Cookie Policy (the “Sites”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer when you visit a site. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience.

Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies.” Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site, such as site analytics, advertising and social media features. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site in question and also when it visits certain other sites and/or mobile apps. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See below for details on use of third party cookies and similar technologies with our Sites.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device after you have finished browsing until they expire or are deleted.

What types of cookies and similar tracking technologies does 6D.ai use?

We use cookies and other tracking technologies in the following categories described in the table below.

Type of cookie


Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Site and to enable you to use some of its features. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our Sites to remember choices you make when you use our Sites. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-select your preferences every time you visit our Site.

Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about traffic to our Sites and about how individuals use our Sites. The information gathered may include the types of information described above in the section titled “Information automatically collected.” We use this information to help operate our Site more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information, monitor the level of activity on our Sites, and improve the Sites.

Social Media Cookies

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” (or similar) button on our Sites or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook or Twitter. The social network will record that you have done this. Social networks use their own cookies.

Targeted and advertising cookies

These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us and third-party advertising networks to deliver ads that may be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests or browsing behavior. Based on the cookies that the third-party advertising network sets on our Site and other sites, advertisers can display or otherwise deliver to you advertisements that may be relevant to your interests on our Site and while you are on third party websites.

You can choose to disable cookies, as described below, or to opt out of the use of your browsing behaviour for purposes of targeted advertising. For opt out instructions, please review the “Targeted advertising” portion of the “Your Choices” section of the Privacy Policy.

Your choices

Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, the Sites may not work properly.

For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

For more information about how we collect, use and share your information, see our Privacy Policy.

What other tracking technologies should I know about?

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a site or app. Companies use tiny graphics files with unique identifiers called beacons (and also “pixels” or “clear gifs”) to recognize when someone visits its sites. These technologies often depend on cookies to function properly, and so disabling cookies may impair their functioning.

Flash Technology

We may use Flash cookies (which are also known as Flash Local Shared Object (“LSOs”)) on our Sites to collect and store information about your use of our Sites. Unlike other cookies, Flash cookies cannot be removed or rejected via your browser settings. If you do not want Flash cookies stored on your computer or mobile device, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the website storage settings panel at this website

You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel at this website and following the instructions. Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our Sites.

Pixel tags

We may also use pixel tags (which are also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) on our Sites and in our HTML formatted emails to track the actions of users on our Sites and interactions with our emails. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages or within HTML formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed, typically to measure the success of our marketing campaigns or engagement with our emails and to compile statistics about usage of the Sites, so that we can manage our content more effectively.

Software Development Kits

Our Sites may use software development kits (“SDKs”) provided by third parties. SDKs enable us to provide features and functionality developed by third-party developers, including to provide us with analytics, social media integration, and advertising. The SDKs we use may enable third parties to collect information about the users of our Sites. The types of SDKs we use include:

Analytics SDKs

These SDKs are used to collect information about use of our Sites. The information gathered may include the types of information described in the Privacy Policy section titled “Information automatically collected.” We use this information to help operate our Sites more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information, monitor the level of activity on and within the application, diagnose errors, and improve the mobile application.

Social Media SDKs

These SDKs help you to interact with social networks you are signed into while using our Sites, such as by sharing content with the social network and other features you use with the social network. Social networks may also work with our Sites for analytics or advertising purposes, as discussed above.

Advertising SDKs

These SDKs allow our advertising partners to collect information about your devices, and how you use our Sites over time; and to use this information to show you ads of potential interest and measure how the ads perform. These third parties’ collection, use, and sharing of your personal information is subject to their own privacy policies. You may be able to control or limit use of certain information collected through advertising SDKs for purposes of targeted advertising. For additional information, please review the “Targeted advertising” portion of the “Your Choices” section of the Privacy Policy.

We maintain a list of SDKs used in our Sites. Please contact us at gdpr@6d.ai for a list of our SDKs.


Information about the cookies we use may be updated from time to time, so please check back on a regular basis for any changes.


If you have any questions about this Cookie Policy, please contact us by email at gdpr@6d.ai.
