The patent filed by Sharp Corp describes an image processing apparatus that includes a storage for storing acquired data and a controller for verifying the authenticity of the data. Once the authenticity is confirmed, the controller transmits the data to a service and deletes it from the storage. The apparatus can also add a time stamp to the data for verification purposes.

Additionally, the system described in the patent involves communication with a cloud service where the image processing apparatus adds a time stamp to the acquired data, which is then stored in the cloud service. If the time stamp matches between the data stored in the image processing apparatus and the cloud service, the data is deleted from the apparatus. The patent also includes a data management method that involves storing acquired data, verifying its authenticity, transmitting it to a service upon confirmation, and deleting it from the storage device. The method also involves transmitting the data to a communicable server device when sending it to a service.
