Face App End User Agreement

It also states that the vast majority of FaceApp users don`t sign in, which indicates that, in most cases, it`s not able to link photos to IDs. FaceApp, the photo editing mobile app that has gone (re)viral, this time due to its ability to transform user photos (mostly selfies) to look younger or older than their actual age, has some very worrying terms of use. Despite the controversy around FaceApp, users have continued to download the app in bulk. We could also find that FaceApp offers enviable user reviews, with the vast majority of users having been prompted to rate the app with five stars. Another issue raised by FaceApp users is that the iOS app seems to overwrite settings when a user refused to access their camera role after people reported that they could still select and upload a photo – that is, the app doesn`t have the right to access their photos. FaceApp allows us to learn a lot about these things, as well as how users react to app controversies. Hopefully, we won`t rely as how app usage agreements can also make us vulnerable to data misuse. Apps made available through the App Store will be licensed to you and will not be sold. Your license for each application is subject to your prior acceptance of either this License Agreement for Licensed Applications (“EULA Default”) or a custom end user license agreement between you and the application provider (“Custom USLA”) if provided. Your license for an Apple application under this EULA or custom EULA standard is granted by Apple and your license for any third-party application under this EULA or custom EULA standard is granted by the application provider of that third-party application. Any application subject to this EULA standard is called a “licensed application”. The Application Provider or Apple (“Licensor”) reserves any rights to the Licensed Application that are not expressly granted to you in accordance with this default ITA.

It`s unlikely that FaceApp can actually use user content in a harmful way, and these kinds of terms have also been seen in other social media apps, but for those who want to take their privacy seriously and not leave a digital footprint, these terms should be reason enough to stay away from FaceApp (and other similar apps). The popular app has removed social media feeds with users posting edited photos of themselves what they might look like in the future. Search for “FaceApp” and you are faced with a real flood of coins that cover *this” clause of the user agreement. It also claims that no user data is “transferred to Russia”, even though its R&D team is established there. The proposal is therefore that cloud storage and processing be carried out with infrastructures outside Russia. (We asked to confirm where this was happening. Update: Founder Yaroslav Goncharov told us he uses AWS and Google Cloud.) What are the possible consequences? As Forbes reports, the most likely app your face could be directed to is the training of an AI facial recognition algorithm (remember, faceApp is supported by AI). However, to use the service, there is a catch in the user agreement. Users must agree to give FaceApp the rights to use, modify, adapt and/or publish their image and/or display at any time. Users are not entitled to compensation. The agreement is endless. 3.

We accept requests from users to delete all their data from our servers. Our support team is currently overloaded, but these requests are our priority. For the fastest processing, we advise you to send requests from the FaceApp Mobile application via “Settings->Support->Report a bug” with the word “privacy” in the subject. We are working on a better interface for this. The app, which is currently trending in many countries as the number one free app, also has a worrisome privacy policy that, as many users on Twitter have pointed out, allows FaceApp to transfer user data to a jurisdiction where they are not required to comply with current legislation (mainly Europe/GDPR).
