Privacy Policy for Mitos AR app


At Mitos AR, we respect the privacy of our users. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you use the Mitos AR application (the “App”). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not access the App.


Collection and Use of Information

Personal Information

We do not collect, store, or share any personal information while you use the App. Since the App does not require the creation of an account, no personal data is necessary to use its features.


Camera Permissions

The App requires permission to access your device’s camera to provide its augmented reality functionalities. However, we do not store or transmit any images or information accessed via the camera.


Technical Information

We may collect non-personal, anonymous information about the device you use to access the App, such as the device model, operating system, and other technical details. This information is used solely to improve the performance and user experience of the App and is never shared with third parties.



We value your trust in providing us access to your device’s camera, so we are committed to using commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.


Family Policy Requirements
Mitos AR is designed for users who are 9 years of age and older. We do not knowingly collect information from or market to children under the age of 9. If you become aware that a child under the age of 9 has provided us with personal information without appropriate consent, please contact us immediately, and we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s access to the App.

Attention Parents and Guardians:
Mitos AR is designed for users aged 9 and above, offering an engaging and educational augmented reality experience. However, like any digital tool, it requires responsible use. We strongly recommend parental supervision when children are using the app, to ensure a safe and constructive experience.

Be Present, Be Involved:
Even though Mitos AR is designed to be user-friendly, the immersive nature of augmented reality can sometimes distract users from their actual surroundings. As a parent or guardian, your presence can help younger users navigate both the digital and physical worlds safely.

Physical World Awareness:
Augmented reality adds a layer of digital information to the real world, but it doesn’t replace it. While using Mitos AR, always be aware of your surroundings. Pay attention to physical hazards like roads, bodies of water, and other obstacles that could pose a risk.

Remember, safety first! Being conscious of your environment will help you—and those around you—enjoy the app to its fullest while staying safe.
