Through its range of Flash Me products, Meemento, a Paris-based company, wants to introduce the use of technologies like the QR Code or the NFC in our everydays life to share information easily around us.
The QR Codes are these two-dimensional barcodes that are flashed with a reader such as a smartphone or a tablet. As for NFC technology, it is a technology that allows to communicate 2 devices: a Flash Me and a telephone for example, simply by bringing the two together.
Flash Me connects the real world and the virtual world. Meemento allows us to set the Flash Me so that it displays previously saved information: a visiting card, a blog, a message, contact information, information about our pet, etc.
1. Where are my data stored? Are they secured?
Our software platform is hosted at O.V.H (https://www.ovh.com)on a dedicated and secure server. OVH is the number 3 internet hosting company in the world with more than 17 datacenters in 16 countries. Your data are well protected and backedup daily. They are secure and can only be accessed through the unique URL attached to your product.
2. If I lose my product, can I block it or delete its data?
Should you want to erase all the content on your product, no problem. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (using of course the same email address that you’ve used to activate your product) and we will reset your product for you. All its data will be definitely erased from our servers.
3. Who can have access to the data/information stored in my bracelet?
All the data stored in your product are linked to a URL. That URL is accessible only when your product is scanned. Of course, you could also share that URL by other means. Also, we can provide you, (upon request) with a copy of your QR code by mail, to use it on other media than our Flash Me product.
4. How can I activate my product?
When you flash / touch your product for the first time, with your mobile phone, you will see your activation page. Depending on the product you have, you can choose the module you want to use (business card, internet link, photo, video, medical data, contacts, blog ...) and then fill it in with your data. That's all. When you have finished this step, you will receive a mail with a link allowing you to modify the setting of your product as many times as you want. You will be able to modify your data or even change your module. Your product is then activated. When it is again flashed / touched, what you decided to share will be displayed simply and quickly on the phone that scans you.
5. I did not receive my activation mail
Consider looking at your record of junk mail. If you do not see it, write to us at email@example.com and just give us the number of your product, we will send you the mail again. The number of your product is represented by the last 8 digits of the url associated with your qr code / chip nfc.
6. I have lost my password, what should I do?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of your product (represented by the last 8 digits of the url associated with your qr code / chip nfc) and we will send it back to you.
7. How to modify the data or module of my product?
After activating your product, you have received an email with a link that allows you to return to the activation page of your product. You can then modify your data or change the module you want to use. You can also access your activation page from our website www.flashme.io by selecting "setting my code". You will then be asked to enter your product number and password.
8. What is a 1 QR code ?
A qr code is a barcode, like those you see on the products you buy at the supermarket, but a little different... first they have 2 dimensions (they are square), which allows them to store more information than "traditional" barcodes, including website addresses. In addition, they are easily readable thanks to your mobile phone.
9. What is an NFC chip ?
NFC or near field communication, is a simple and intuitive technology that allows you to use your mobile phone for innovative purposes. An NFC tag can be linked to information such as a web page, social networks and all sorts of other information in general. NFC technology links the physical world to the virtual world. By placing our products next to a mobile phone, the connection is made, simply and quickly.
10. How to decipher a QR code or scan an NFC chip?
There are many applications that can read QR codes, they are all free. We tested several and we recommend i-nigma (easily available on appstore or google market place). Otherwise, go to www.i-nigma.mobi with your mobile phone, and the correct version for your phone model will be automatically offered to you. Once the application is downloaded, open it and approach the QR code as if you wanted to take a photo. As soon as the image is clear, the qr code is automatically recognized, and the browser on your phone will then open to take you to the address stored in the QR code. To scan an NFC chip, simply activate this protocol on your mobile phone (a bit like activating wifi or bluetooth). Then bring your phone closer to the product, touch it ... And the contact will be established, quite simply.
11. Can I be scanned without my noticing?
Not really, to scan a QR code, we must approach it. The QR code must "not move" for a few seconds ... so it does not seem possible that this will be done without your consent. Same for a NFC chip. It must be touched.
12. Do all Flash Me products have a QR code and a NFC chip?
Not for now, we offer these two modes of communication only on the sticker, the pet tag and the i-tag. Our bracelets currently only contain the QR code technology (without an NFC chip).
