This privacy statement and the procedures outlined herein comply with EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 of April 27, 2016 (“GDPR”) and the relevant national legislation of the Countries implementing the GDPR (together the “Regulations”).
We may from time to time make updates to this Policy in order to keep pace with the changes on the Site, our Services and the law. However, we will always continue our commitment to respect your privacy and handle the information that you provide to us in compliance with standard and applicable laws.
This Policy does not apply to the practices of any third-party services, such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter that you elect to access or monitor through the Site (the “Supported Platforms”) or to any software or applications developed by third parties that we do not own or control (“Third-Party Apps”). As an example, this Policy does not cover any information or other content you can view via the Site on Supported Platforms (but which was not posted there using the Site) or information you provide to Third-Party Apps accessed via the Site. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Supported Platforms and Third-Party Apps that share our respect for your privacy, we shall not be responsible and/or liable for the content or privacy policies of any Supported Platforms or Third-Party Apps. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Supported Platforms or Third-Party Apps you access via the Site.
BY SUBMITTING YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO CHAMOJI (IRRESPECTIVE OF THE MANNER OR FORM), ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE SITE, AND/OR REGISTERING, SUBSCRIBING, CREATING AN ACCOUNT OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS POLICY AND TO ITS PROCESSING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REGULATIONS, AND THAT YOU ARE EXPRESSLY CONSENTING TO OUR COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE TERMS IN THIS POLICY, PLEASE (I) DO NOT ACCESS THE SITE OR (II) DISCONTINUE YOUR USAGE OF THE SITE IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY STARTED USING THE SITE.
Chamoji is the sole controller of the data that we gather from you and we are responsible for your personal data to the extent required by law.
In general, you can browse chamoji.com without revealing to us your identity or providing any personal information about yourself to us. But once you provide to us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us.
With or without cookies, the Site tracks usage data, such as the source address that a page request is coming from, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring web site (if any) and other parameters in the URL. We use this data to better understand the Site usage in the aggregate so that we know what areas of the Site users prefer. This information is stored in log files and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting. Such information is not linked to personal information gathered elsewhere on the Site and therefore does not contain personal identifiable information.
Also, when you interact with our Site through various social media (such as Facebook, Google+ or Twitter) to log-in to your Chamoji account (the “Chamoji Account”), depending on your privacy settings on your social media accounts, you may enable a two way communication of information between your Chamoji Account and your social media account – this means that your content on the “my gallery” page under your Chamoji Account may be published on your social media accounts and your information on your social media accounts may be published on your Chamoji gallery.
We may also receive from your social media accounts information such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, and username, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, state, friends list, and any other information you permit social media to share with third parties. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the applicable social media – should the privacy settings allow information to be published on your social media account, you give us permission to access and obtain your information about your friends, contacts and your posts from such social media accounts. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our Site.
We may also collect, store, make use of and transfer personally identifiable information about you which may include but is not limited to your full name, user name, password, profile photo, email address, phone or mobile number, IP address, browser information, and any other information you provide in connection with your Chamoji Account.
As Chamoji Face Filter App functionality is fully based on face detection, in order to use Chamoji Face Filter App We shall need Chamoji Face Filter App to process Your images taken by the Device camera. However, all the images taken by the camera shall be processed solely on Your Device and shall not be sent to Our servers, i.e. We shall have no access to such images (We shall not collect, share or store them).
Chamoji Face App face detection algorithms used within processing of Your images are not able to identify a specific person and, therefore, generally cannot be considered as collecting biometric information. However, in case the applicable law stipulates that images captured by the camera or face geometry generated by Chamoji Face App are considered as biometric identifiers, biometric information or similar legal category, hereby You express Your informed written consent on their processing as described in this Policy.
Collectively, all such information referred to in this section shall be referred to as “Personal Information”.
