1. What information do we collect from or about you?
In this Policy, we refer to two types of user information: Personally
Identifiable Information (sometimes referred to as “PII”) and
non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that can be
used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate you. Examples of Personally
Identifiable Information include a name, physical address, e-mail address,
telephone number, or a credit card number.
Pictarine collects only the PII that you voluntarily provide to us, such
as when you register to use the Services, set up a profile, create
content, sign up for a special offer, enter a sweepstakes or promotion, or
complete a survey. If you purchase products or subscribe for paid
services, you might also be asked to provide your credit card and related
information for billing purposes.
You might also be asked for, or choose to provide, additional information
about yourself that does not, itself, specifically identify you. This is
non-Personally Identifiable Information. However, some information of this
kind, such as your age, gender, geographic location and shopping
preferences may be required (or merely requested) when you register for
the Services, and may be associated with your PII.
Pictarine may also automatically collect other types of non-Personally
Identifiable Information as you use the Services, including technical
information (such as your internet protocol (“IP”) address, mobile device
ID, or browser type) and usage information (such as location data,
preferred language, the parts of the Services you have visited, which
links you have clicked and other information about how you interact with
the Services). This information is anonymous, and is not associated with
your PII, although it may be associated with other pieces of anonymous
information about you.
2. What do we use your information for?
Your Personally Identifiable Information may be used in one of the
- To contact you regarding your account. These communications may include
notices regarding changes to our policies, service updates, account
management procedures and customer service transactional messages.
- To e-mail you newsletters or tips about how to use the Services, inform
you of product updates, or notify you about our own special offers or
those of our third-party partners.
- To bill your credit card or other specified form of payment, in
Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be used in one of the
- To enable us to generate aggregate data about site traffic and site
- To customize your experience (your information helps us to better
respond to your individual needs).
- To show you advertisements most relevant to your demographic
- To make improvements to the Website and Services
- To inform potential partners and advertisers about the size and
characteristics of our audience
- (a) Do we disclose any information to other parties?
- Pictarine does not sell or trade your Personally Identifiable
Information to outside parties. We may disclose your Personally
Identifiable Information to vendors who help us operate the Website,
conduct our business or provide the Services to you, such as credit card
processors, photo-printing vendors, customer service centers, or e-mail
marketing providers. For example, we will have to provide your
information to a third party that prints your photos. Photos that you
choose to print using the Services, including any information that is
contained within such photos, will also be shared with such third
parties. All such partners are bound to keep your information
- We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information, including to local,
state, or federal law enforcement officials, when we believe in good
faith that the law requires such action, or when required to do so by
order of a court or other compulsory legal process. We may also share
Personally Identifiable Information in order to investigate, prevent, or
take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations
involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to
prevent harm to the Website.
- We may transfer your Personally Identifiable Information if we are
acquired by or merge with another company. We will notify you in
- We may use or distribute information about you and your use of the
Services in ways that do not reveal Personally Identifiable Information.
For example, we share anonymous user information with advertisers and
advertising networks to enable the display of targeted, relevant
advertisements. We may also provide anonymous usage data or summary
characteristics of our audience to potential partners and advertisers or
post such information on publicly accessible areas of the Website.
- (b) Who can see your photos after you post them to Pictarine?
- After you upload your photos using the Services, you may choose to share
your photos with others through the App’s “feed”, which would allow all
users of the App to see those photos, or through third party social
media platforms, such as Instagram or Facebook (“Social Media”). Who may
see your photos on such Social Media platforms depends on the privacy
policies and privacy settings you have set through those Social Media
platforms. Once a photo is shared through Social Media, Pictarine does
not have control over who can or cannot see that photo through that
Social Media platform.
- As with any photo printing service, when you choose to print your
photos, Pictarine employees, subcontractors, and partners may see your
photos while they are printed and packaged. Occasionally, in order to
improve the Services, Pictarine may randomly select user sessions and
record the Mobile Application screens that users click through (the
“Recordings”); as part of this process, Pictarine may see the products
and photos that users select. If you do not want to participate in these
random recordings, please contact us at
3. How secure is your personal information?
The security of our user data is very important to us. We transfer your
information securely, using industry-compliant encryption technology. We
don’t store your credit cards number. When you enter sensitive information
(such as a credit card number) on our web forms, we encrypt the
transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology
4. How long do we retain your information?
The retention period of collected information depends on the type of
information and the reasons why we collect it. For example, Recordings
will be retained for up to three months.
Your account information is retained while your account is active, unless
you request us to delete the information or close your account. If you
request us to delete your information or close your account, some
information may still be retained for a reasonable time for re-activation
purposes in case you decide to return to the Services. We may also retain
some information we believe in good faith is necessary for legal and
regulatory compliance, research and development, business matters, and
improvement of our Services, in which case we would anonymize and encrypt
such information until complete deletion.
If you request us to delete your information or close your account, some
of the information you shared through the Services may still be accessible
by those with whom you shared it. For example, if you shared an image
enhanced within the App through social media, this image may still be
visible by those with whom you shared it, even if we delete it from your
Cookies are small files that a website or one of its service providers
transfers to your computer’s storage device via your Web browser (if your
browser is configured to permit this) that enable its systems to recognize
your browser and store certain information. We use “cookies” to collect
information and improve our Services. We may use “persistent cookies” to
save your user ID and password for future logins to the Service. We may
use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to
better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor
aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your
computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer, and can only be
read by a web server of the website that issued the cookie to you.
Depending on your web browser, you may have the ability to accept or
decline cookies. Most web browsers default to accept cookies but enable
you to configure settings to decline them. For further information about
disabling cookies you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org. If you choose to
decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other features of
the Services that depend on cookies.
Pictarine maintains internal logs of usage of the Services. Logs include
information such as IP address, browser type and version, and computer
operating system. Pictarine uses logs mainly for internal systems
administration and diagnostic purposes, and to detect improper use of the
site. Logs may also be used to generate aggregate, non-Personally
Identifiable Information for advertisers or other third parties.
to associate your Personally Identifiable Information with data about your
use of the site.
6. Other privacy policies to which you may be subject
The Services incorporate the Application Programming Interfaces (“API’s”)
Occasionally, we may include or offer third-party products or services on
the Website that include links or opportunities to share your photos to
external websites. For example, advertisements, promotional offers, “free
gifts,” and other links on Pictarine Website or included in e-mail from
Pictarine, may bring you to external web pages not controlled by
Pictarine. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy
policies and terms of service, which will govern the use of any Personally
Identifiable Information that you provide. While Pictarine is not
responsible for the use of your information by third parties, we
nevertheless seek to protect our users and the integrity of our Website,
and we therefore invite your feedback about these sites.
7. How can you access, update or delete your Personally Identifiable
All account settings can be changed from inside the Pictarine Mobile
Applications. This includes reviewing and changing Personally Identifiable
Information, setting e-mail preferences for non-account related e-mails,
cancelling or deactivating your account.
Administrative and account-related communications are necessary to ensure
we provide our users with the highest level of service, therefore
registered users are not permitted to opt out from receipt of these
communications, except in that event that you cancel your registration for
the Services entirely.
New types of marketing communications might be added from time to time.
Users who visit the Mobile Application section can opt out of receiving
future marketing communications or they can unsubscribe by following
instructions contained in the messages they receive.
Anonymous information relating to your past usage of the Services may
remain in our archived records after your account has been deleted, and
any content that you have contributed to the Services will remain visible
to the same extent as if you remained a registered user of the Website. If
you wish to have all information that you have posted to be deleted,
please contact us at email@example.com and we will make reasonable
efforts to honor your request.
Because enhancements to the Services we provide may affect the information
change from time to time. All changes will be incorporated into the
written policy and posted here. The date of last revision to the Privacy
Policy is indicated at the bottom of this page.
Pictarine will provide you with the opportunity to accept or reject
Services. If you do not agree to the modifications, your access to the
Services may be discontinued.
