Privacy Policy

The privacy policy of Tookapic regarding your personal data could be limited into only one sentence - the security of your data above all! Below we will present you with a some essential information and principles regarding GDPR. We want the use of our Website to be not only user friendly, but also safe. That is why we set high standards for ourselves in terms of data privacy.

If you have any questions, let us know at hello@tookapic.com. We are here for you.

Who we are?

It's easy. The Tookapic website is all about the authentic photos taken by people for whom photography is more than a passion. Our motto is "Capture your life in pictures. Day by day." You can take pictures for yourself or for your loved ones. Tookapic helps you to take your photography into a different level. However, to do this, we need some of your personal information about you that we will be the controller.

How do we process your data?

By registering an account you provide us with a login and email address. These are the data necessary for us to provide our service. We must know to whom we provide it and have the opportunity to contact our users. We also process your data regarding the IP number, data stored in the cookie and in local storage.

Legal basis for data processing

The main basis for the processing of your personal data is a contract that you conclude with us by registering an account on our website. As we wrote above, if you do not provide your details, there will be no registration and as a result you cannot start your photo journey with Tookapic. A key element of the contract is also sending specific system notifications, such as a pop-up, which allows you to contact via chat or email about changing the terms of the Regulations or the Privacy Policy.

In addition to notifications, you will receive from time to time promotional newsletters from us and our partners. In this respect, the basis for processing is our legitimate interest - we must be able to contact our clients and perform work that will make our service even better. We will not do this if you oppose to it by using GDPR compliant panel https://tookapic.com/account/notifications or by contacting hello@tookapic.com by email. We respect it.

If you have agreed, we will process your personal data also in order to send information about our activities. We are constantly improving our website, that's why we want to keep you updated. Giving a consent for receiving some commercial materials is voluntary - you can withdraw at any time and not suffer any consequences.

How we use your data?

Your data is necessary for us to provide our service. You already know that. Therefore, we process data that allows us to keep in touch with you.
