Your Contacts List

The Stella app will use your Contacts list to allow you to select a recipient for your gift when you use our in-app eGifting feature.

Phone numbers from your Contacts list will be uploaded to our backend. We do this for two purposes. 

  • We will compare phone numbers from your Contacts list with Stella users you may have eGifted before. If you have an existing eGift history with any of your contacts, they will be moved to the top of your list, and you can tap on their name to see a history of your eGift transactions.
  • When you select a new eGift recipient from your contact list, we will notify them of your gift via text message (SMS).
Your Contacts list will not be stored on our server. We only store the phone number of a designated recipient so they may claim your eGift. 

We will never sell or share any of your Contacts data to any third party.

You may choose to deny permission for Stella to access your Contacts List. You can still eGift in person using QR codes, but you won't be able to send eGifts using your Contacts.

Your Images

To personalize your account, the Stella app allows you to set a profile image on the Settings tab. A profile image can be an image you take with your device's camera, or an image you select from your device's gallery. Setting a profile image is optional. If you do set a profile image, it does not necessarily need to be a photograph of you. You can remove your profile image at any time.

Here's what we do with your profile image:
  • After you select the image for your profile, the image file is uploaded to our server, saved in our database, and associated to your account.
  • When you open your QR code for scanning by a merchant, your image is displayed at the top of the screen.
  • When you initiate a redemption transaction at a participating merchant, your profile image will be displayed along with your name in the service request.
We will abide by these guidelines with regard to your images:
  • We will not upload any image from your device without your knowledge and permission.
  • We will not activate your device's camera without your knowledge and permission.

We ask that you abide by these guidelines:

  • Don't use an image that you're not comfortable sharing in public, family-friendly environments. Keep it PG.
  • Don't use images, logos, art, or likenesses for which you do not have the copyright (or express permission from the copyright holder).
