Information We Collect

The information we learn from users helps us not only provide the Service but also to personalize and continually improve each user’s experience with the Service. Here are the types of information we gather:

Information You Give Us

Personal Information: When you create an account with Pixopolitan, we may ask you for certain limited personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and email address, which we will use to contact or identify you. If you are uploading Content on the Service as a photographer pursuant to a Photographer Agreement, you also have the option to provide certain additional profile information such as your website, bio and a profile picture, which we will use to help identify your Content on the Service. You can choose not to provide us with any or all of the information we specify or request, but then you may not be able to register with us, submit Content or take advantage of some or all of our features. You can register by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites ("SNS") (including Facebook and Twitter) via our Service. If you decide to create your Account by logging into a SNS via the Service, we may extract the Personal Information you have provided to the SNS (such as your "real" name, email address and other information you make publicly available via the SNS) from the account you have with such SNS and use that information to create your Account; the information we extract may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNS.

Once you’ve created an Account, you can make purchases of photographs or other Content on the Service or create content such as reviews of your purchases and experience with the Service. If you are a photographer uploading a photograph pursuant to a Photographer Agreement, any associated metadata your camera might have embedded into that photograph, such as the date taken or place taken, may be uploaded as well. You will also provide us with as much detail as you can about each photograph, such as a description, the location and date it was taken. This information may be made available to anyone visiting our website.

Automatic Information Collected

Like many other websites, we also collect information through cookies and other automated means. Information of this sort includes:

Technical information about your browser and mobile device: This information is used in the aggregate to help us optimize the Service for common browsers and devices.

Usage information, such as the customized sonar and radar settings, features and emails from Pixopolitan that you interact with: We collect and use this behavioral information and may use it in anonymized and aggregate forms to generate statistics about users and how the Services are being used and to facilitate targeted communications and advertisements but the information is not shared in any form that could be used to identify you personally. Please see “How we use and share the information we collect,” below, for further information and choices about sharing information with third parties.

IP address and log file information, web beacons, cookies, tokens and device identifiers: These are alphanumeric identifiers that help us to distinguish between unique browsers and devices in order to avoid showing you the same information twice, keep you logged into Pixopolitan, prevent duplicate actions, prevent duplicate coupon redemptions and improve your experience. The information we collect from cookies may include your IP address, browser and device characteristics, referring URLs, and a record of your interactions with our Service. By using the Service, you are consenting to such use of cookies. Most Web browsers can be set to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie. We will respect your choices relating to on-line tracking, whether you choose to reject individual cookies or set your web browser to reject cookies and other tracking technology. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude you from using, or negatively impact the display or function of, the Service or certain areas or features of the Service.

Crashes and error reports: If you encounter a crash or error while using our Service, we may generate a crash report that includes technical, usage and, if you are logged in, your account information so that we can diagnose and potentially prevent the problem in the future.

Third Party Information

We may receive information from third parties such as public demographic information to help analyze the use of our services and expand our offering.

User Content

Any Content you post on this Service may be read, collected, and used by us and others who access this Service. You should only upload Content if you are comfortable with these terms. Likewise, if you are a photographer, any profile information such as bio, website and picture may be made available to users of the Service, and you should only provide such information if you are comfortable with this policy.

How We Use and Share the Information We Collect


We use the information we collect for things like:

  • Establishing and managing your account and providing the Service (including fulfilling your purchase orders, if any)
  • Conducting research and analysis
  • Identifying you on the Service and communicating things like surveys and offers
  • Operating, evaluating and improving our business


We will not share your personal information other than as described herein or as necessary to perform the Service or unless you authorize us to. As described above, we may share Content and profile information publicly on our Service. In addition, we may provide aggregate usage and demographic information to service partners to help them understand our audience and target their communications accordingly, but not in a way that could identify our users personally.

In the normal course of business Pixopolitan may also share your information with individuals (such as employees, contractors and lawyers) and companies (such as our payment processor and shipping carriers) to perform tasks on our behalf and may need to share certain information with them in order to provide products or services to you. However, our agents do not have any right to use the information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us in providing the service to you as described in this Privacy Policy. While we encourage vendors to treat your personal information with the same level of care as we do, we cannot be responsible for the use by such vendors of your personal information. We also transfer your financial information (such as valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information) directly to our third party payment processing company, whose terms of service and privacy policy shall govern treatment of such information.

Sometimes we may be required to share your information in response to a regulation, court order or subpoena. We may also share information when we believe it's necessary to comply with the law. We also may share information to respond to a government request or when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of Pixopolitan, our customers, or others; to prevent harm or loss; or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.

We may also share your information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event.

How We Store and Protect the Information We Collect

Pixopolitanuses reasonable security measures to store and protect the information under our control and appropriately limit access to it. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.</>

We use a variety of information security measures to protect your online transactions with us. The Service uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your sensitive personal information during data transport. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, Content or other communications will always remain secure. We will notify you by email if we have reason to believe that your personal information has been compromised due to a security breach or used in an unauthorized manner, but by using this Service, you agree to release us from any and all claims arising out of unauthorized use of your information.

Your Choices Regarding the Information We Collect

You may choose to:

  • Stop receiving marketing or promotional e-mails, direct mail, or other marketing communications
  • Update and correct your personal information and user settings
  • Cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services
  • Control when and whether content is posted to an SNS, using both settings provided by Pixopolitan and settings provided by the applicable SNS
  • Request removal of your personal information or Content from our Service

To do any of these, simply notify us of this decision by one of these methods:

  • Follow the unsubscribe link in any marketing email or following the directions included in any other promotional material received from Pixopolitan
  • Send an email to us at support@Pixopolitan.us
  • Write to us at:
Pixopolitan Inc.
Attn: Customer Service/Privacy


Please note that any opt–out request sent via postal mail may take at least sixty (60) days to become effective.

Data Retention

We will retain your profile information and Content for as long as your account or, if you are a photographer, the term of your Photographer Agreement, is active or as needed to provide you services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you close your account, we may still retain certain information associated with your account for analytical purposes and recordkeeping integrity, as well as to prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, enforce our terms and conditions, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of our web site or our users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law. Deactivating your account does not automatically delete your account or Content from our database, but regardless of any retention policy we will make reasonable efforts to enable you to delete your profile information from our database upon request. However, if certain information has already been provided to third parties, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties' policies. Additionally, if you have posted your information to other websites or otherwise made it available to the public, you may not be able to remove or edit your information from some internet databases.

Third Party Services and Links to Other Websites

Our website may contain links to other websites including those of our service partners and other service providers, many of which have their own privacy policies. Be sure to review the privacy policy on any site you are visiting, whether directly or through the Service.

Additionally, we may integrate third party services in to our Service in order to personalize your experience. This policy only covers the use of cookies by Pixopolitan. Cookies placed by third party services are governed by the third party terms and privacy policies applicable to those services (which we encourage you to read).

Children's privacy

We restrict use of the Service to individuals age 18 and above, and do not knowingly seek or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18.

Using the Services from outside the United States

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information from residents of the United States and is not intended for users located outside the United States. If you are accessing the Service from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using the Service, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant or involve changes to the way we use personal information, we will notify you by delivering an announcement via our Service or your account email. If you opt out of communications from Pixopolitan, you may not receive these notifications, however they will still govern your use of the Service, and you are responsible for proactively checking for any changes. If you continue to use the Service after changes have been posted, you agree to abide by and be bound by the modified privacy policy. Each version of this Privacy Policy will be identified by its effective date found at the bottom of this page.

If you have any additional questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us any time through this Service, or email us at support@Pixopolitan.us.
