The Privacy Policy does not cover any third-party websites, applications, software, products or services that integrate with Image Filters or are linked to from Image Filters.

1.4. Our role as a data controller and data processor. We act in the capacity of a data controller and a data processor with regard to the personal data processed through Image Filters in terms of the applicable data protection laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our role depends on the specific situation in which personal data is handled by us, as explained in detail below:

  • Data controller. We are responsible for the collection and use of your personal data through Image Filters and we make decisions about the types of personal data that should be collected from you and purposes for which such personal data should be used. Therefore, we act as a data controller with regard to the personal data collected directly through Image Filters (e.g., when you conclude a service contract or communicate with us). We comply with data controller’s obligations set forth in the applicable laws.
  • Data processor. We act in the capacity of a data processor in situations when we receive the Content for processing through Image Filters and that Content contains personal data. We do not own, control, or make decisions about the Content. We process the Content only in accordance with the instructions issued by a respective data controller. To ensure that the Content is processed in accordance with the strictest data protection standards, we have drafted and offer a data processing agreement that is available for consultation at (the “DPA”). To conclude the DPA, please download it, add the required information, sign it, and return a copy of the signed DPA to

In some cases, if required by the applicable law, we may seek to obtain your informed consent for the processing of your personal data. For example, you consent may be necessary if: (i) we intend to collect other types of personal data that are not mentioned in this Privacy Policy; (ii) we would like to use your personal data for other purposes that are not specified in this Privacy Policy; or (iii) we would like to transfer your personal data to third parties that are not listed in this Privacy Policy.

We will delete your child’s personal data from our systems without undue delay.

1.7. Term and termination. This Privacy Policy enters into force on the effective date indicated at the top of the Privacy Policy and remains valid until terminated or updated by us.

2. What Personal Data do we collect and for what purpose do we use it?

When you use certain functionalities of Image Filters, we ask you to provide us with your personal data. In this section, we explain what types of personal data we collect from you, for what purposes we use that data, and on what legal bases we rely when processing your personal data.

2.1. We respect data minimisation principles. Thus, we collect only a minimal amount of personal data through Image Filters that is necessary to ensure the proper provision of Image Filters. We use your personal data for limited, specified and legitimate purposes explicitly mentioned in this Privacy Policy. We do not use your personal data for any purposes that are different from the purposes for which it was provided.

We use this data to register and maintain your user account, enable your access to Image Filters, provide you with the requested services, contact you, if necessary, and maintain our business records. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘performing a contract with you’ and ‘pursuing our legitimate business interests’ (i.e., analyse, grow, and administer Image Filters).

We use your IP address to analyse the technical aspects of your use of Image Filters, prevent fraud and abuse of Image Filters, and ensure the security of Image Filters.

If you refuse to provide us with your personal data when we ask to, we may not be able to perform the requested operation and you may not be able to use the full functionality of Image Filters, or get our response. Please contact us immediately if you think that any personal data that we collect is excessive or not necessary for the intended purpose.

2.4. Sources of personal data. We obtain your personal data from the following categories of sources:

  • Directly from you. For example, if you submit certain personal data directly to us when registering your user account, completing the necessary forms, or contacting us.

3.1. Log files and analytics data. In order to analyse your use of Image Filters, we and our analytics service providers Google Analytics and Hotjar automatically collect certain technical non-personal data about your use of Image Filters. Such data does not allow us us to identify you as an individual person in any manner. The non-personal data includes the following information:

  • Your device type;
  • The operating system of your device;
  • Your browser type;
  • URL addresses that you visit; and
  • Your other online behaviour.

    3.4. Aggregated and de-identified data. If we combine your non-personal data with certain elements of your personal data and such a combination allows us to identify you as a natural person, we will handle such aggregated data as personal data. If your personal data is de-identified in a way that it can no longer be associated with a natural person, it will not be considered personal data and we may use it for any business purpose.

    4. How do we communicate with you?

    From time to time, you may receive messages from us. In this section, we explain when you may receive commercial and service-related notices from us and what you can do to decline our promotional messages.

    4.1. Newsletters. If we have your email address, we may send you a newsletter to keep you updated about the latest developments related to Image Filters and our special offers. You will receive our newsletters in the following instances:

    • If we receive your express (“opt-in”) consent to receive marketing messages;
    • If you voluntarily subscribe for our newsletter; or
    • If we decide to send you information closely related to services already used by you.

    4.4 Tracking pixels. The newsletters sent by us may contain tracking pixels that allow us to conduct analysis of our marketing campaigns. Tracking pixels allow us to see whether you opened the newsletter and what links you have clicked on. We use such information to conduct analytics and pursue our legitimate business interests.

    5. How long do we keep your personal data?

    We keep your personal data for the shortest possible period and only if it is necessary. In this section, we specify the retention periods for your personal and non-personal data.

    5.1. Retention of personal data. Your personal dat is stored in our systems only for as long as such personal data is required for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or until you request us to delete your personal data, whichever comes first. After your personal data is no longer necessary for its primary purposes and we do not have another legal basis for storing it, we securely delete your personal data from our systems.

    5.2. Retention of technical (non-personal) data. We retain non-personal data pertaining to you for as long as necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we can store it for the period of time needed for us to pursue our legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with (and demonstrate compliance with) legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

    5.3. Retention as required by law. In certain cases, we are required by law to store your personal data for certain period of time (e.g., for business records or accountancy purposes). Thus, we keep your personal data for the time period stipulated by the applicable law and securely delete it as soon as the required storage period expires.

    6.1. Disclosure to data processors. From time to time, your personal data is disclosed to our service providers with whom we cooperate (our data processors). For example, we share your personal and non-personal data with entities that provide certain technical support services to us, such as hosting and email distribution services.

For example, if you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA), we may need to transfer your personal data to jurisdictions outside the EEA. In case it is necessary to make such a transfer, we will make sure that the jurisdiction in which the recipient third party is located guarantees an adequate level of protection for your personal data or we conclude a data processing agreement with the respective third party that ensures such protection.
