Privacy policy

Last updated: 24 Apr 2017

Privacy was the one of the main reasons behind the creation of this site. Read on to see how your privacy is protected.

So how private is this site exactly

By default images are covered with multiple layers of protection. The SSL encryption prevents unauthorised interception of the data that your browser exchanges with Unsee web server. Images are not stored on the server indefinitely. They are not actually stored as files at all. Instead they are kept in memory for exactly the period that is specified in sharing settings. After the said period, they are automatically wiped from RAM. No temporary backups or other ways exist to recover the images. Unsee guarantees that your uploads are available online at most for the time that you specified or less.

It’s not impossible, but pretty hard for a 3rd party to download the images shared on Unsee. For instance it’s not possible to just right-click and save image. It’s not allowed to open developer tools in browser and to modify the DOM tree to get to images. Due to the way the images are loaded, they are not registered as a resource by the browser at all. But even if all of the above is bypassed, every image is watermarked with the viewer’s IP address as the last resort. Coupled with stripping of internal image data and a blocking system to prevent malicious users from opening the same album again, this site should prove to be one of the safest after not sharing images at all.

Data protection

In accordance with Germany's data protection laws we are not saving any of the identifying data that you provide to us either directly or indirectly.
