Information Collected by Metapix
In general, Metapix will collect personal data from you based upon our business relationship, your use of the App, Site, Our services and Our products, as follows:
We respect the privacy of every individual who uses our Services. We collect certain personal information that you voluntarily provide to us. For example, we collect your name, email address, user name, social network information and other information you
provide us when you register, set up an account, contact us by e-mail or use our services. We may also obtain information from other companies and combine that with the information we collect on the Services; for example, when you link your account with Facebook, we might have access to your name and profile picture.
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect some information. Such information includes the type of browser you use, your browser’s language, access time or the website from which you linked to us. We also collect information about your computer’s operating system and information about your usage and activity on the Site. This information is only used to assist us in providing an effective service. We may, from time to time, supply the owners and operators of third party websites and mobile applications which have a link to our site or application with information about the number of users of our Site or Mobile. You cannot be identified from any of this information.
With your permission (on download or in the app), we may access and store the Content (your user name and photos) you provided while using our Mobile applications and Site. We may also edit stored photos, apply effects to them and use them to perform
marketing activities. Yet we will show your photos or your edited photos solely to you (for example by sending you promotional e-mails you opted-in).
We may also collect information about others if you use our Services to upload, share and/or distribute Content that contains information about them, including their name, image and online contact information.
We collect information about you when you submit a job application, resume, survey responses or similar information.
If you wish to subscribe to Our Push Notification, We will use your name and Phone to send the notification to you. Out of respect for your privacy, you have the option not to enable push notification.
To use our Services, you should provide a photo prior to the event of photo editing. Since the processing requires Internet connection and is performed on our servers the photos are sent there through the encrypted connection. We use Secure Socket
Layer technology to protect the privacy and integrity of the transmission process. For registered users who share their results within the Services that provide special social network features, the shared content will be stored on the servers and shown within the Services unless a user either removes the images themselves or requests such a removal by contacting our support team.
How We Use Information
We may use data We obtain as described above for purposes relating to our App, website and services, including
(a) Providing the Photo editing services to you,
(b) Facilitating third parties to participate in the provision and improvement of the app, Website and services (including without
limitation hosting partners, AI technology provider and other service providers),
(c) Raising queries with you, and responding to issues you may raise, whether relating to our services or otherwise,
(d) Surveys and other customer satisfaction-related activities,
(e) Progressing job applications, to perform credit checks and,
(f) Verification of personal or business data and payment details and other checks.
Service Related Announcement
We will send you service-related announcements when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if Our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, We might send you an Notification. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not
promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
We will also communicate with you in response to your customer service enquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account.

Disclosures to our Service Providers
Your personal data may be transferred to and processed by third party providers and suppliers which perform services for Us (data processors), to enable these companies to perform the services requested by Company.
