How information is collected?
When you give us permissions to obtain it. When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, tags, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using Imageshack on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.
We collect technical information when you use our products. In todays world, technology often helps websites display relevant ads based on some non-personal information that almost always gets created and recorded in an automated way. When you use our products, we collect such information and may use it to show more relevant advertising. The information and ways we use to collect it described bellow:
How we use information we collect?
How Do We Use Personally Identifiable Information (PII)? We use the PII we request at registration in order to provide you with the services offered on the Site, including image hosting and sharing. All information provided by you to ImageShack is strictly confidential and will almost never release any personal information about you without your permission. However, ImageShack reserves the right to release your information if you have violated the ImageShack Terms of Service, or if the information is subpoenaed, in order to protect safety of ImageShack or Site users.
How Do We Use Your Information For Advertising? ImageShack will target advertising based on personal information provided by users and inferred from site usage. This may include gender, age, or geographic data. ImageShack does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad. We may bundle and share the non-personal information we collect from you and other users with advertisers, third parties, trusted partners and affiliates so that they display advertising that better suits the interests of users of our Site. We may aggregate your PII with information about others. In that case we will make your information non-personally identifiable by removing your name, email and other characteristics that would identify it as you. We may use and/or share the resulting non-PII with third parties.
Do We Use Analytics Companies? We may provide some non-personal information to others who help us understand how you use the Site.
Important things to keep in mind:
13 and Up. If you are under the age of 13, we're sorry, but you can't register at the Site. On the bright side, ImageShack will never knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us for the purpose of deleting this information.
Please use ImageShack Help if you have any questions about this service.
