How your personal data is shared
Users can choose to share their videos and content within their Pixiko account(s). Content may contain personal data. Users may choose to share their content by:
- Downloading a video, and sharing the video file
- Directly uploading videos to YouTube
- Creating, sharing and/or publishing a web link of the video, or
- A video can be directly embedded into external websites and social media platforms.
While Pixiko makes the opportunity available for you to share your content with others, such as by uploading videos to YouTube – and while we have worked hard to refer our users only to those parties whom we believe take a responsible approach to personal data handling – it is up to you to determine whether you are comfortable with the privacy practices of those parties before doing so. We encourage Pixiko users to take a moment to review the privacy policies of sites or services that may be linked via our Platform.
Pixiko does not sell or share your videos or other personal data, including with advertisers, sponsors, content providers, media outlets or law enforcement, unless:
We have your express permission (e.g. you have expressly chosen for your review of our platform to be published), or
There is a lawful ability or requirement for us to do so (e.g. we receive a court order to produce the information).
Pixiko does not control, however, how your personal data is used and shared by private individuals (e.g. where you share your video to social media, or your image is contained in a friend’s video).
Can you remain anonymous?
Pixiko may provide our video editing Services to you pseudonymously. When providing your name, you may use a nickname or other name. We do however, require an accurate email address to be able to contact you, send service emails and provide you with a magic link to verify your identity when accessing your account.
Can children use Pixiko?
Pixiko does not directly market to or provide our video editing services to children under the age of 13. As such, children under 13 may not register an account with us. It is a requirement of our Terms and Conditions that you are at least 13 years old, or are the minimum age required by the laws of your country, to sign up to an account with us or use our video editing Services.
If we discover that a child under 13 (or the minimum legal age depending on your country) has provided us with personal data or registered an account with us, we will immediately delete their data. If you are a parent or guardian and become aware that your child has provided us with personal data, please contact us so that we can securely destroy their data.
Children aged less than 18 years, but who are at least 13 years or the minimum legal age in their country, are able to create an account and use the Platform and Services provided that a parent or legal guardian agrees to supervise them in doing so. For more information see our Terms and Conditions.
How your personal data is stored
Pixiko uses a cloud storage provider, Digital Ocean Cloud, to store personal data, including user registration data, payment information, communications data, and user video files (where the user chooses to sync their files to the cloud).
Pixiko also uses other service providers to store specific types of personal data (such as payment processing information, emails, analytics and communications data) on our behalf. The personal data stored by third party providers relates directly to their functions and services.
How long we keep your personal data
Pixiko will keep your personal data for different periods, depending on the purpose for which it was collected. Where we no longer require personal data for the purpose it was collected, we will securely destroy that data.
Where you subsequently cancel your subscription, your files will be stored by us for 30 days after your subscription ends. However, your projects will still be stored on your local device unless you have deleted them.
There may be times when you no longer need your account, but do not wish to go through the registration process again in the future. In this instance, a user may choose to de-activate their account. This will ensure your account is no longer active but can be reinstated by you at a later stage. Choose the ‘de-activate my account’ link in your account settings.
A user can also choose to delete their account. When a user chooses to delete their account all data held with the account will be deleted and cannot be recovered at a later stage. Users can delete their accounts by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ability to delete your account is part of your personal data rights, i.e. the right of erasure.
How your personal data is secured
Pixiko securely manages and disposes of personal data, by implementing a range of data security practices. We ensure that personal data is appropriately secured both when it is stored onsite or in ‘the cloud’, and use SSL encryption to store and transfer personal data.
Protection of personal data from unauthorised access and disclosure is a priority for us. Any concerns about the security of your personal data held by Pixiko should be reported to us by email at email@example.com.
