When you use the iPOLPO services, and any others we roll out in future, you will inevitably share some information with us. We understand that this can affect your privacy. So, we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information.
There are three basic ways we collect information:
- information you choose to give us
- information we get when you use our services
- information we get from third parties
Please see explanations of each category here below:

You will be asked to set up an account ONLY if/when you wish to either download or upload photos. Setting up an iPOLPO account is very simple and we only ask for the following:
1) an email that we verify
2) a secure password (your passcode is encrypted and we do not have acccess)

-MY PATH "on" enables iPOLPO to track your (the user) path during an event. This feature will track you GPS coordinates and TIME you were at each GPS point, this combination of data (time and location) is is then used by our supersmart iPOLPO algorithm to find photos taken near you.... photos of YOU. Helping you find your photos.
-we encourage all users to turn MY PATH "off" as soon as you are done with the event you are participating in.
