Privacy policy

Last updated on July 29, 2023

1. Introduction

Welcome to the privacy policy of the PicBulk- Bulk Image Uploader app. In today's digital age, the significance of privacy and data protection cannot be overstated. Our commitment is rooted not just in the adherence to laws and regulations, but also in the respect we have for our users and their businesses. Understanding the value of data in eCommerce, we have established strict protocols to maintain transparency, trustworthiness, and, above all, the utmost level of security. This document aims to elucidate our principles, practices, and procedures pertaining to data handling.

2. Information We Collect

For the functionality of our app, we collect specific sets of data, all integral to enhancing user experience and ensuring smooth operations. While the digital realm allows collection of vast arrays of data, we limit our collection to only what is absolutely necessary:

  • Shopify store information, essential for seamless integration and understanding store structure.
  • Zip files containing product images, which are the core functionality of our app. These images help populate your store with the desired visual content.
  • Other data that helps improve user experience, such as user preferences, feedback, and usage patterns. This data assists us in refining our services and understanding common user behaviors.

3. How We Use Your Data

Your data is a responsibility we don't take lightly. The collected data's primary purpose is to enhance the app's functionality, but it also plays a pivotal role in ensuring we maintain a standard of excellence. Here's how we utilize the data:

  • Unzipping and uploading product images to your store, enabling your products to be visually appealing and increasing customer trust.
  • Enhancing app functionalities by understanding common user patterns, feedback, and preferences. This iterative improvement ensures our app remains up-to-date with industry standards and user expectations.
  • Offering customer support by understanding user issues, complaints, and feedback in real-time, ensuring quick resolutions and maintaining user satisfaction.

Importantly, we do not sell, lease, or share your data with third parties for advertising or other unrelated purposes. Your trust is paramount, and we are unwavering in our commitment to uphold it.

4. Data Storage and Security

The bedrock of any digital solution lies in its ability to safeguard data. We understand that when you trust us with your data, it's not merely numbers and bytes but a reflection of your brand and its values. Here's our strategy:

Our infrastructure adopts industry-leading, robust security measures that go beyond standard protocols. With multi-layered encryption at both the database and file levels, we ensure that your data remains invulnerable to external threats. Further, our dedicated security team continuously monitors the cyber environment, ready to thwart any potential threats even before they manifest.

Data storage isn't just about security but also accessibility. With a distributed storage system, we ensure data redundancy, meaning in the rare event of any system failures, your data remains intact and accessible, ensuring uninterrupted service.

5. Data Retention

Quality service is as much about retaining relevant data as it is about discarding the redundant. We practice a conscious and responsible data retention policy:

Once the zip files have been processed, they're permanently deleted, not just from the front-end servers but also from our backup systems. This ensures there's no unnecessary accumulation of data, guaranteeing efficiency. However, some non-personalized data might be used for analytical purposes, guiding us in improving user experiences, detecting patterns, and enhancing functionalities. Such data is stripped of any personal identifiers and is purely statistical in nature.

6. Your Rights

At the very core of our operations lies a profound respect for user rights. Data democracy is a value we hold dear. As a user:

You are always in control. Whether it's about accessing your data, requesting modifications, or even asking for complete data deletion, we are always a click away, ensuring swift actions. Our dedicated user rights team works round the clock, ensuring timely and efficient responses to all your data-related queries. Furthermore, if you ever feel your data is being processed in ways you didn't consent to, you can always raise an objection, and we will review the processing activity.

7. Changes to This Privacy Policy

The digital landscape is dynamic, ever-evolving, and so are our policies. We believe in staying ahead of the curve, always ready to adapt to the changing tides. Therefore, our privacy policy undergoes periodic reviews, ensuring it's always in sync with the latest in data protection standards.

While minor changes might be silently updated, we believe in transparency for any significant amendments. All major updates are communicated to our users via emails, in-app notifications, or other preferred channels of communication. We always recommend our users to periodically review our policy, ensuring they're always in the know.
