When you register on windybot.com, windyaiart.com and Windy AI App("Site"), use the Site, complete forms, payment information or register to any of our programs, you directly provide us with most of the information we collect. We automatically collect information and analytics data while you access, browse, view or otherwise use the Site. Through the use of the Site, you may receive information from 3rd party sources, providers and vendors which are also collected through our Site.
Under applicable laws where relevant, the processing of your personal information will be justified by a "lawful ground" for processing as detailed below.
Personal information is used to provide you with quality service and security and to operate the Site. Analytics data helps us understand how people use the Site so we can improve our software, services and marketplace function so as to perform our obligations to you as a user. Data is used to prevent fraud to ensure software integrity and security. We also use the information collected to contact you and send you direct marketing communications, transactional notifications and to promote and advertise the Site. Information collected may also be needed to comply with lawful requests by public authorities and to comply with applicable laws and regulations. When you interact with our service, we may collect information such as your chat history and messages. This information is used to provide you with a personalized experience and to improve the quality of our services.
We will keep personal information only for as long as is required to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected.
To make our Services available and meet legal obligations, we require the collection and utilization of specific Personal Information. Failure to provide requested information may impact our ability to deliver the products or services you request. The gathered information serves various purposes:
Processing your Personal Information depends on your interaction with the Services, your location, and specific conditions:
Note that in some cases, we may process information until you object (opt-out), without relying on consent or other legal bases. We're willing to clarify the specific legal basis, especially regarding whether providing Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement or necessary to enter into a contract.
We maintain specific types of data for defined durations to ensure a secure and efficient user experience. Here's an overview of our retention periods:
1. Images, Videos, and Audio Recordings: Any media files, including images, videos, and audio recordings, that you upload or generate through the application are retained for a maximum of thirty (30) days. After this period, they are automatically deleted from both our servers and those of our service providers unless you have explicitly chosen to pin or save them until you delete them explicitly. The exception is when the images, videos and audio are made public or shared by the user or saved by the user, then the data will not be automatically deleted. AI generated media and images that are generated by non-paying free users may also be made public if they pass certain quality standards and therefore not automatically deleted. Paying users have generated images private by default but have the option to share to community or make it public.
2. Facial Data Processed for AI Images: Facial data used in the process of generating AI images follows the same retention policy and is stored for a maximum of thirty (30) days. Your facial data is used only for relevant AI generation tools that involve the use of faces. However, we do not process facial data for any identification purposes. We also do not share this information with any third parties except for processing and any temporary storage purposes with service providers. Subsequently, this data is automatically removed from our servers and the servers of our service providers unless you have explicitly chosen to pin or save them until you delete them explicitly.
3. AI ImagesThe AI-generated images created through the application are also subject to a retention period of thirty (30) days. After this timeframe, these images are automatically erased from our servers and the servers of our service providers unless you have explicitly chosen to pin or save them until you delete them explicitly.
4. Other Personal DataWe retain additional personal data, excluding the aforementioned media files and facial data, for a maximum of three (3) years. This period is calculated from your most recent interaction with the app or from the expiration date of your subscription. If you access the app post-subscription expiration, the retention period initiates from this most recent interaction. Upon completion of this period, unless legal obligations necessitate extended retention, the data is either deleted or anonymized to ensure your privacy and data security.
