Why Do We Collect & Process Information About You?
We have a contractual right or obligation
We have your consent
We continue to process your information on the above basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at Graphica2kcreator@gmail.com However, if you do so, you will not be able to use our Site or our services in the future other than to search for other users’ images as a Site visitor.
We have a legitimate reason to do so
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate reason, either to you or to us, of doing so. Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given consideration to: (a) whether the same objective could be achieved through other means; (b) whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm; and (c) whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would reasonably expect us to do so. For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of: (i) record-keeping purposes; (ii) responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response; (iii) protecting and asserting our legal rights; and (iv) protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so.
We have a legal obligation
We will process your information when necessary to comply with a legal, statutory or administrative obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
You have asked us to charge your preferred payment method
Your payment information is never taken by us or transferred to us either through our Site or otherwise. Our employees and contractors never have access to it. At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of our payment gateway partners. Their pages may be branded to look like a page on our Site but are not controlled by us. They are regulated by stringent credit card privacy laws as well as the rules of Visa, Mastercard, etc.
You sent a message to our customer support team
When you contact us, whether through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need. We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our company. We may keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high-quality service.
You have made a complaint or notified us of potential instances of copyright infringement
When we receive a complaint or take down request, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint or request. If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint or request. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is. We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source on an anonymous basis to assess the level of service we provide.
How Do We Collect Information Other Than When You Provide It To Us?
Cookies, Mobile Device Identifiers and SDK’s
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser when you visit any website. They allow information gathered on one web page to be stored until it is needed for use on another, allowing a website to provide you with a personalised experience and the website owner with statistics about how you use the website so that it can be improved. Some cookies may last for a defined period of time, such as one day or until you close your browser. Others last indefinitely. Your web browser should allow you to delete any you choose. It also should allow you to prevent or limit their use.
Personal identifiers obtained from browsing
Requests by your web browser to our servers for web pages and other content on our Site are recorded. We record information such as your geographical location, your Internet service provider and your IP address. We also record information about the software you are using to browse our Site, such as the type of computer or device and the screen resolution. We use this information in aggregate on an anonymous basis to assess the popularity of the webpages on our Site and how we perform in providing services to our members. We also use this anonymous information to help us make decisions on where/how we can improve and enhance our services.
Note though: if combined with other information we know about you from previous visits, the data possibly could be used to identify you personally, even if you are not signed into your user account on our Site, but that is not common.
Our use of re-marketing
Information we obtain from third parties
Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we sometimes receive data that is indirectly made up from your personal information from third parties whose services we use.
Third party advertising on our website

We will store your information and will use it solely for the purpose of providing our services to you and the public.
When posting images or other personal information, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might use it.
