Information We CollectThere are three basic categories of information we collect:
- Information you choose to give us.
- Information we get when you use our services.
- Iformation we get from third parties.
Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

For example, to enhance your experience you may decide to set up a basic Image Improv account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go by, a password, and an email address.

Information We Collect from Third Parties

Third-Party Content and Integrations
The services may also contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations, or offer a co-branded or third-party-branded service. Through these links, third-party integrations, and co-branded or third-party-branded services, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information.

How Long We Keep Your Content
Image Improv will archive all photographs uploaded for an indeterminate time. We will maintain the association between your Image Improv account and the photographs you uploaded even after you have deleted your account.
Some of the log information we collect on site operation will be periodically purged from our systems. We may need to suspend these deletion practices if we receive valid legal process asking us to preserve content or if we receive reports of abuse or other Terms of Service violations. Finally, we may also retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as required by law.
Control over Your Information
We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.
Access and Updates. We strive to let you access and update most of the personal information that we have about you. There are limits though to the requests we’ll accommodate. We may reject a request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of other users, requires technical efforts that are disproportionate to the request, is repetitive, or is unlawful. You can access and update most of your basic account information right in the app by visiting the app’s Settings page. If you need to access, update, or delete other personal information that we may have, you can put in a request here. Because your privacy is important to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let you access or update your personal information. We will try to update and access your information for free, but if it would require a disproportionate effort on our part, we may charge a fee. We will of course disclose the fee before we comply with your request.
Revoking Permissions. If you change your mind about our ongoing ability to collect information from certain sources that you have already consented to, such as your phonebook or location services, you can simply revoke your consent by changing the settings on your device if your device offers those options. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality.
Account Deletion. While we hope you’ll remain a lifelong user of Image Improv, if for some reason you ever want to delete your account, just go here. If you ask to delete your account, you will have up to 30 days to restore your account before we delete your information from our servers. During this period, your account will not be visible to other Image Improv users.
Users Outside the United States
Although we welcome Image Improv Users from all over the world, keep in mind that no matter where you live or where you happen to use our services, your information may be shared within the Image Improv family of companies. This means that we may collect your personal information from, transfer it to, and store and process it in the United States and other countries outside of where you live.
Our services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under 13. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13.
