We suggest that since the app only runs on your phone, the best solution for privacy is to sort pictures with Pix.Tours when you have privacy. If someone is watching you play, they will see the pictures you've taken. This was something learned using Pix.Tours 001 first-hand and it was sometimes fun, and sometimes not when others were watching. If all of your pictures are rated-G, then you have nothing to worry about. Most of the time when playing mobile games, there's generally a decent amount of privacy as we tend to do it as a solo game session, so you probably don't have to worry too much. It's more of a private game though, as it deals with your private photos. Another great thing to do is to use a privacy screen and place it on your screen. Just search: 'privacy screen' and your phone s model with a google search.
Secondly, Pix.Tours does not store your photos. The app directly switches photos from one folder to the other as quickly and efficiently as possible for your device. If the app stored your pictures, it would quickly eat up the RAM on your device, and the app would crash. Additionally, we don't have storage facilities to store your pictures, so we're not going to start paying for storage to store your pictures. We're trying to save everyone storage costs. Rest assured, while Pix.Tours is running, your pictures are stored on your device and your device only. Pix.tours will also not take any of your data, because it would be a very uncomfortable if it were doing that for Pix.Tours's friends and family, as well. Pix.Tours cares about your privacy just as much as you care about your own privacy. Pix.Tours seeks to help everyone save money on cloud storage, and have nicely organized picture folders. We're not here to create a stormy cloud.
Lastly, since Pix.Tours doesn't actually ask for any information from you, the biggest part of this agreement is if you send us information or pictures via email or through our "Contact" page. If these things aren't done, then there's really no way we'll get your information. Leaderboard gets information from game center and google play, and we don't interact with that information other than to compile your score. We're keeping it as simple as possible for everyone involved.
The rest of this agreement is pretty dense legalese If it pertains to, or interests you, read forth. Welcome again to Pix.Tours Photo Sorting App.
Effective Date: February 28, 2018
At Pix.Tours, privacy is a top priority and we are firmly committed to guarding the confidence you have placed in us and to use, responsibly and professionally, any information you provide. We won’t ask you for personal information unless we feel it is necessary to provide our Service. We won’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products and services, or protect our rights. And we will never rent or sell personal information to any third party.
Please use our Service only when you have privacy, because if someone is observing your use, they may be able to see the pictures you have taken.
1. Your Information
In order to operate the Service, and to provide you with information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we may collect (a) "personal information" (i.e. information that could be used to contact you directly, such as your name and email address); (b) “geo-locational data” (i.e. information that can be used to identify your physical location); (c) “meta-data” (i.e. information which describes how, when and by whom a particular set of data was collected, and how the data is formatted; and (d) Log file information (i.e. information which is automatically reported by the mobile app each time you make a request to visit a web page such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, referring / exit pages and URLs, and how you interact with links on the Service, pages viewed, and other similar information. Collectively, this information is called “your Information”.
We may and do employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service on our behalf (i.e. downloading the app, the ads, the leader-board, and in-game purchases), and to perform services related to the mobile app or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used. Intermediaries like Facebook and Apple iTunes, Apple Game Center, and Google Play will ask for login information. These intermediaries will collect information when you share a post, but nothing more than what they would normally collect during a regular session. Game Center for Apple will record your score. Others will be able to see your score on the scoreboard, and you will be able to share it with your friends. Your scoreboard will list your username in the Game Center.
2. Information Transfer
We may share aggregate information about our users that does not identify you personally, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Service and using other data analytics tools. Please note that, while the aggregate data we provide will not identify you personally, in some instances third parties may be able to “de-anonymize” aggregate data to identify you personally based on additional information they have about you or that they receive from third parties. While we do not intend for third parties to de-anonymize the aggregate data we provide, if you are concerned about potentially being personally identified, you should not use the Service.
Any third party with whom we are allowed to share your personal information is authorized to use your personal information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact you will need to be instructed directly by you regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information by them.
3. Content and other Material you Choose to Reveal
You may be able to post information, including personal information, on areas of the Service that may be viewed by other users or the public. We urge you to use good judgment. Do not post any information, including without limitation, personal information, that you do not want other users to know. Many internet connections are public and/or not secure, and other users using that same connection may have access to your information; please make sure that you are using a secure internet connection.
YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF PRIVACY OR OTHER HARM RESULTING FROM YOUR VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
4. Device Identifiers
In addition to the information gathered as described above, we may use device identifiers in our Service. Device identifiers are small data files stored on your mobile device, which help us identify your mobile device. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service. This can help us provide reports or personalized content and ads via the Service.
5. Third Parties’ use of Personal Identifiers and Device Identifiers
The Service may include third-party advertising, links to other sites, and other content from third-party businesses. These third-party sites, businesses, and advertisers, or advertising companies working on their behalf, may use device Identifiers and personal identifiers to measure the effectiveness of their ads, personalize or optimize advertising content and to track users who link from their respective websites to the Service.
We do not have access to or control over such identifiers that these third parties may use. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these third-party sites. You are encouraged to review the privacy policies of the different sites you visit.
Some third-party advertising companies may provide a mechanism to opt-out of their technology. For more information about the opt-out process, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative website, available at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Keep this in mind if you decide to communicate personal information through any of these means.

We understand your submissions as consent to store all of your information in one place for this indefinite length of time, if we so wish. If required by law, we will remove user information by erasing it from our database. We will also respond to written user requests to remove account information.
9. Special Cases in Which we Share Personal Information
10. Our Security Precautions
Your profile is password-protected so that only you have access to your account information. In order to maintain this protection, do not give your password to anyone. Our staff will never proactively reach out to you and ask for any personal account information, including your password. You should never share devices. This will help protect your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.
