When You access the Site, Our server automatically collects certain information such as your IP-address, pages viewed, and length of time spent on the Site. We collect and use this information to diagnose problems with our server, to improve Our site, and to provide content of interest to You. We may also give affiliates and partners access to aggregate data about Our users and their use of the Site during user sessions.
It is in Our legitimate interest to use Your Personal Data in such a way to ensure that We provide the very best service to You and Our other customers.
Security of Personal Data
We take reasonable, industry standard steps to safeguard the security and confidentiality of any information You provide to Us, including Your Personal Data. When Your Personal Data is stored with Us, We use systems with limited access, located at facilities with technical, physical and administrative security measures, to protect against unauthorized access to, use or disclosure of Personal Data We collect or store.
Any password and user name allocated to You by Us must be kept secret and must not be disclosed to anyone, unless We have given You our prior written permission.
Whom do we share your personal data with?
We are a global company and any Personal Data that we collect or that You provide to Us may be shared and processed by any of Our entities.
We may also share Personal Data with a variety of the following categories of third parties if necessary, such as:
- Our professional advisors such as lawyers and accountants
- Governments or regulatory authorities
- Tax authorities
- Third parties to whom We outsource certain services such as IT systems or software providers, hosting service providers, payment service providers, document processing and translation services, etc.
- Third party service providers who assist Us with customer insight analytics
In some cases, We thus appoint sub-contractors as required to deliver Our services to You. These sub-contractors process Personal Data on Our behalf. We ensure contractual documentation in relation to any sub-contractor to make sure that they process Personal Data according to Our legal and regulatory obligations.
In order to provide Our services, we may need to transfer Your Personal Data to locations outside the jurisdiction in which You provide it.
If You are based within the European Economic Area (EEA), please note that where necessary to deliver the services We will transfer personal information to countries outside the EEA.
All Pixelz entities have signed a data sharing agreement which is based on the EU standard contractual clauses to ensure that We comply with Our legal and regulatory obligations in relation to Personal Data, including having a lawful basis for transferring Personal Data.

Use of images sent to us for availing our services
The Site provides services to remove backgrounds of images sent to Us by customers. We will not use images sent for private or commercial use without Your prior consent. When processed, the images will be available at a public internet location, the URL of which will not be published. As this location is public (and therefore potentially available to any internet-connected device), We urge you to use discretion in sending Us images that may be sensitive to You or to third parties. Under no circumstances shall We be liable for unauthorized transmission of images that do not belong to You.
If You use Our services to send pictures of physical, identifiable persons and thus make Us process Personal Data for which You are responsible, You must enter into a data processing agreement with Us. Our data processing agreement can be found here.
