The information we collect
Account Information. When you sign up for WedPics you provide us with your name and email. You will also be able to add a picture of yourself. In some cases we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide specific services to you.
User Content. One of the primary reasons people use WedPics is to share media with others. Examples include when you upload or take a photo, upload or record a video, share your media, create an event, and/or make a comment.
Transactional Information. We may retain the details of transactions or payments you make on WedPics. If you do not want us to store your payment source account number, you can remove it using your payments page.
. We may offer contact importer tools to help you upload your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers so that you can find your contacts on WedPics, and invite your contacts who do not have WedPics accounts to join. If you do not want us to store this information, please email us at email@example.com
with the email address that is associated to your WedPics account. If you give us your password to retrieve those contacts, we will not store your password after you have uploaded your contacts’ information.
Site activity information. We keep track of some of the actions you take on WedPics, such as adding contacts, uploading media, and indicating you “heart” a piece of media. In some cases you are also taking an action when you provide information or content to us.
Access Device and Browser Information. When you access WedPics from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.
Cookie Information. We use “cookies” (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make WedPics easier to use, to make our advertising better, and to protect both you and WedPics. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to WedPics. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into WedPics, and to know when you are interacting with WedPics applications and websites, our widgets and share buttons, and our advertisements. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use WedPics.
How we use the information we collect
We use the information we collect to try to provide a safe, efficient, and customized experience. Here are some of the details on how we do that:
To manage the service
. We use the information we collect to provide our services and features to you, to measure and improve those services and features, and to provide you with customer support. We use the information to prevent potentially illegal activities, and to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use
. We also use a variety of technological systems to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users.

To make suggestions. We may also suggest that you visit certain spaces and events based on your posts and preferences.
When you invite a contact to join
. When you ask us to invite a contact to join WedPics, we will send your contact a message on your behalf by e-mail and/or text message using your name. We may also send up to two automatic reminders to them in your name and on your behalf by e-mail and/or text message. You can see who has accepted your invitations, send reminders, and delete your contacts’ email addresses and/or phone numbers on your invite history page. By subscribing to this service, you voluntarily authorize and direct us to send your uploaded contacts informational e-mails and text messages on your behalf using an automated system to the e-mail addresses and/or mobile phone numbers you have provided regarding such contacts. You are not required to use or subscribe to this service in order to benefit from other WedPics features that are unrelated to the “invite a contact to join” feature. Standard message and data rates may apply. With respect to any text messages, the recipient may reply STOP to end all messages, or may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
for assistance. Once enrolled in this service, you may cancel your subscription to this service (e.g., stop all e-mail and text message reminders) at any time by adjusting the settings on your account settings page or by e-mailing us at email@example.com
To advertise our services. We may ask advertisers outside of WedPics to display ads promoting our services. We may ask them to deliver those ads based on the presence of a cookie, but in doing so will not share any other information with the advertiser.
To advertise the products and services of others. We and our partners may use third party ad serving technology to provide advertisements for third party products and services that may be of interest to you within WedPics and on our website. In connection with such technologies, we and our partners may collect and use information about you, such as information about your online activities over time and across third party sites, your WedPics session activity, device identifier, MAC address, IMEI, coarse geo-location information and IP address. Such information may be used for tracking purposes, which involves collecting, analyzing and storing information about your behalfor over time on multiple sites, including information on the sites visited, products viewed, products purchased and other online interactions. Tracking enables our partners to make interest-based (behavioral) advertising available to you on the sites that you visit. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used, and if you have any questions about an advertisement or about how such information will be used, you should contact the responsible advertiser directly. Neither WedPics nor our website currently response to any Web browser or device “DO NOT TRACK” signals or other mechanisms that may indicate your choice regarding the collection of your information for tracking purposes. Please note that no personally-identifiable information of yours will be shared with such ad serving partners.
How the information we collect may be shared

Contact Information. Your contact information settings control who can contact you on WedPics, and who can see your contact information such as your media. Remember that none of this information is required except for your email address, and you do not have to share your email address with anyone.
User Content. When uploading a photo, you can control exactly who can see it by selecting the event in which it will be stored. The specified event will determine who will be able to see your media.
Legal Compliance. We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with state, federal or international laws or regulations, to respond to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or other government request, or to comply with national security or law enforcement requirements; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect WedPics’s rights or property.
Business Transfers. We may disclose or transfer your information, including your personally identifiable information, to a buyer or other successor to our business in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the assets pertaining to the WedPics business, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which information held by the us about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
Print Partners. Solely at your direction (in the event that you elect to order prints of photographs from the Website), we may share some of your information with certain third party print processors. All print orders you process through the Website are received and processed through a third party printing company. Currently, our print partner is Pwinty. When you place a print order through the Website, Pwinty receives the image URL of any photo that was selected by you to be printed and delivered to the shipping address specified by the user. Pwinty is bound by contractual obligations to process your information only for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent that you have provided to us and to keep your information confidential.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information. We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your media or the number of users who clicked on a particular link.
Other. Here are some other things to remember:
- Some of the content you share and the actions you take will show up on the pages your contacts or other WedPics users and third-party partners.
- Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users.
- You understand that information might be reshared or copied by other users and displayed by third-party partners of the Website.
- If you use an external source to publish information to WedPics (such as a mobile application or another website), you should check the privacy setting for that post, as it is set by that external source.
Third party applications and websites
You should always review the policies of third party applications and websites to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use information you share with them directly and/or through the Website9. We do not guarantee that they will follow our rules. If you find an application or website that violates our rules, you should report the violation to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will take action as we deem necessary.
Accessing your personal data
You may also send us an e-mail at email@example.com
to request the right to view any of your personal data that we store and use, and to correct, amend or delete any such personal data that is inaccurate, and we will permit you to do so unless the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or when the rights of others would be violated or when the information is confidential commercial information or when certain other narrow exceptions apply. You may also access, correct, amend or delete certain personal data that you have submitted to WedPics by accessing your profile via the app and updating the information in your profile.
Steps we take to keep your information secure. We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as passwords), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also use automated and social measures to enhance security, such as analyzing account behavior for fraudulent or otherwise anomalous behavior, and we may limit use of site features in response to possible signs of abuse, remove inappropriate content or links to illegal content, and/or suspend or disable accounts for violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use.
Risks inherent in sharing information. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on WedPics will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on WedPics. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up-to-date antivirus software.
Reporting a privacy violation. Every day, thousands of people come to WedPics to share photos and engage with one other. We want you to feel safe when you’re on WedPics, which is why we encourage you to let us know if media or comments on the site violate your privacy or sense of safety. If media contains your personal information without consent, including your image, name or national identification number, you can contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Report security violations. You should report any security violations to us at email@example.com.
