About Error Correction 

When you generate a QR Code, you have an option for specifying the level of Error Correction. Error correction refers to how much physical damage a QR Code can sustain before it is no longer readable. QR Codes, for example, created with low ("L") error correction are readable until more than 7% of the QR Code is damaged, dirtied, or obscured in some fashion. QR Codes with the highest ("H") error correction can sustain up to 30% damage and still be readable.

There are four error correction options available when generating a QR Code:

Level
Tolerance
L

Up to 7% damage

M

Up to 15% damage

Q

Up to 25% damage

H

Up to 30% damage

QR codes with high correction levels store less information per area than QR Codes with low correction levels. If error correction is not important - eg, if you're only displaying QR Codes on a web page - then a low correction value is sufficient (L or M.) If you are, however, printing something such as shipping labels that will be sent through the postal system with no protection, use a high correction level (Q or H.)
