Automatically collected technical information: Our servers log information about each computer connecting with our site such as IP address, dates and times of each login, page and image viewing statistics. We also log the metadata associated with any images you upload. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described below, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you; and second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website or use our apps. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies for interest based advertising, please visit https://www.popads.net/privacy-policy.html.
We collect whatever personal data about you that you choose to give us, such as a contact email address and profile information. We do not require you to use an account to upload images, and if you open an account you do not have to use your real name – you may choose a username and email address that reveal nothing about your identity. If you give us an email address, we’ll probably send you promotional messages once in a while; but of course you’ll be able to opt out at any time.
You may correct, amend, or delete inaccurate private data (if any) you have given us. For legal reasons we may retain backup and/or archival copies of information prior to your corrections, amendments, or deletions. We take every reasonable precaution to protect your private data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You are responsible for taking every reasonable precaution on your end to protect any unauthorized person from accessing your Steempix account.
Every image uploaded to Steempix – whether uploaded directly without going through a user account, or uploaded via a user account – has its own URL, and can always be accessed and viewed by anyone who types in that exact URL. That stated, we do offer privacy settings if you upload images via your user account: Image privacy. Image privacy: Individual images can be toggled between "private" and "public" through your personal settings menu, accessible by clicking your photo after you've signed in. If you select "private," any images you upload via your user account will not appear on your public images page, will not appear in response to our image search function, cannot be hotlinked, and will not appear in the gallery (except to the extent that you submit them). If you select "public," all of your images will be displayed individually on your public images page (http://steempix.com/accounts/profile/username. They still will be searchable via our search function, and will be displayed in the gallery.
