Privacy Policy

Here we describe how we collect, use, and handle your information when you use our website, apps, and services (the “Services”).

What and Why
We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:

Account. We collect and associate with your account information with other information like your name, photos, email address, and phone number. The Services may let you access your account and your information with other service providers, like Facebook or Instagram. By associating your account with other service providers such as Facebook, you are authorizing us to have access to your information and images from such account in connection with the Services in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Services. When you use our Services, we store, process, analyze, and transmit the photos on your device and information related to them (for example, geographic location, tags, and other metadata). If you give us access to your contacts, we’ll store those contacts on our servers. This will make it easy for you to do things like share your content, send emails, and invite others to use the Services. If your friends accept your requests, we will also add their photos along with related information about the Photos, which may include status updates, comments, and additionally-uploaded Photos. If you give us permission to receive your mobile device location data, we collect and retain the location information from your device (for example, we may get your location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are taking pictures nearby). Our Services provide features that allow you to request photos of yourself from other users of the Services and for you to automatically share photos on your device with other users. If you give us permission to automatically share your photos with your friends who use the Services, will attempt to do so accurately when we believe we have identified the right circumstances to share your photos. While we strive for accuracy, we do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of this feature or any other features of the Services.

Usage. We collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.

Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.

Photos. We use image recognition and face recognition technology to enable the Services to identify people, objects, and scenes in your photos and your friends’ photos. To do so, the Services may upload your photos to our servers for analysis. These images are used in connection with the Services and for no other purpose.

In addition, our business, or any of its assets, may be sold, or other transactions may occur in which personally identifiable information is one of the key business assets for the transaction. Accordingly, we retain the right to share and transfer all information described herein with a purchaser of our business or its assets if that purchaser agrees to abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy.
