When you share information with us through your Account, we can make those services even better by showing you more relevant search results, helping you connect with people, or making sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our Services, we want you to be clear as to how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like [cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags, and browsers], then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to us; so whether you are new to CoinaPhoto or a long-time user, please do take the time familiarize yourself with our practices.
- Collecting information
We collect different types of information to provide better services to all of our users. The information we collect can be categorized in two ways:
(a) information you give us, such as information that you provide in respect of your Account in order to access certain Services, which may include your name, email address, telephone number, and credit card; and
(b) information we get from your use of our Services (such as information about the Services that you use and how you use them, which would include:
(i) device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number), which CoinaPhoto may associate with your CoinaPhoto Account
(ii) log information, including details of how you used our Service (e.g. search queries), telephone log information (e.g. your phone number, the calling party’s number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls), internet protocol address, device event information (e.g. crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request and referral URL), and cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Account;
(iii) location information (e.g. from GPS signals sent by a mobile device or from sensor data from your device that may provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cellular towers);
(iv) unique application numbers (e.g. the operating system type and application version number) that may be accessible when using certain Services;
(v) local storage, such as personal information that we may store locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches;
(vi) cookies and anonymous identifiers, which are used by us and our partners to collect and store information when you use certain Services and may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device and using cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with Services that we offer to our partners (e.g. advertising services or CoinaPhoto features that may appear on other sites).
- How we use information that we collect
We use the information that we collect from all of our Services to provide, maintain, protect, and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect CoinaPhoto and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content (e.g. by giving you more relevant search results and advertisements).
We may use the name that you provide for your Account across all of the Services that we offer that require an Account. We may also replace names that were previously associated with your Account in order to ensure that you are represented consistently across all Services. If other users already have your email or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Account information and other Content, such as your name and photo.
When you contact CoinaPhoto, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues that you may be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our Services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies (e.g. pixel tags) to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our Services, such as by saving your preferences to provide our Services in the appropriate language.
We may combine personal information from one Service with information (including personal information) from other Services. This can make it easier to (amongst other things) share Content with people you know.
CoinaPhoto processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
- Transparency and choice
Since people have different privacy concerns, it is our goal to be clear about the information that we collect so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. In particular, you can:
- review and control certain types of information and the Content tied to your Account;
- control who you share information with; and
- take information or other Content out of many of our Services.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it is important to remember that many of our Services (e.g. language preferences) may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
(a) Information you share
Many of our Services let you share information with others. Remember that, when you share information publicly, it may be indexed by search engines. Our Services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
(b) Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our Services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information and the opportunity to update or delete such information as and when necessary, unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (e.g. developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (e.g. requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide access to information access and the ability to correct such information, we will do so free of charge, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Accordingly, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
(c) Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of CoinaPhoto, unless one of the circumstances listed below applies:
(i) We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of CoinaPhoto when we have your consent to do so.
(iv) We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of CoinaPhoto if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, enforce the CoinaPhoto Terms (including investigation of potential violations), detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, and protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of CoinaPhoto, our users, or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners (e.g. publishers, advertisers, or connected sites. Sharing such information may, for example, show trends about the general use of our Services.
- Information security
We work hard to protect CoinaPhoto and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information or Content that we hold. In particular:
(a) we review our information collection, storage, and processing practices (including physical security measures) to guard against unauthorized access to systems;
(c) we use SSL encryption for exchanges of sensitive information on the CoinaPhoto website, including your personal information, and payment and financial information.
(b) Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities
