Data gathering

When you use the feature on our website, we may collect the following information:

  • Uploaded Images: We collect image files that you upload to our platform. These images may contain personal data, depending on their content.
  • Metadata: We may collect metadata associated with the uploaded images, such as file names, sizes, and timestamps.
  • Technical Information: We automatically collect certain technical information about your device and how you interact with our website. This may include your IP address, browser type, operating system and referring URLs.

What is my information used for?

  • Give you access to the features and services offered on our website.
  • Improve and extend the functionality, security and user experience of our website.

How long we retain your data

Suggested text: If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Data collection

We neither share, sell nor give out the uploaded images or related information to third parties, except in the following circumstances:

  • With your consent or in accordance with applicable law.
  • When necessary to comply with legal obligations or respond to legal proceedings.
  • To protect our rights, our privacy, safety or property, or the rights of our users or the public.
    In connection with a merger, acquisition or sale of all or part of our assets.

Change of Terms

We may update this privacy policy from time to time to reflect changes in our practices or for legal or regulatory reasons.
Any updates will be posted on this page, and the effective date will be revised accordingly.

We understand that privacy is of utmost importance to our users. Therefore, we would like to inform you that our website uses the Webhostelgruppen's services for specific aspects of our platform's functionality. The Web Hosting Group is a trusted third-party service provider that helps us manage certain technical aspects of our website, including server hosting, maintenance and related services.

However, please note that the exemption specifically relates to the technical infrastructure provided by the Web Hosting Group and does not give them access to or involvement in the actual image content uploaded by users on our platform. Any image files, associated metadata or personal information contained in these images are not accessible or managed by the Web Hosting Group.
