FOR AI AVATAR APP
A small note on how Replika AI : Avatar Art feature works.
Avatar AI uses a Neural Network Model Stable Diffusion that allows users to generate personalized AI Avatars (“Avatars”).
Users upload 10 to 20 photos and select their gender.
Using these data, a copy of the Stable Diffusion model is retrained to personalize the model
After the model copy is retrained, it generates the Avatars
After the Avatars are generated, the copy of the model, along with uploaded photos, are deleted permanently from our servers
We do not use your Personal Data to generally train and/or create our separate artificial intelligence/products.
We do our best to moderate the parameters of the Stable Diffusion model, however, it is still possible that you may encounter content that you may see as inappropriate for you.
How long are my photos stored on your servers?
Images uploaded to the app to generate AI Avatars are automatically deleted from our servers after your avatars are created.
1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
We may collect several types of information, including but not limited to Personal Data, from and about you:
Directly from you when you provide it to us.
Automatically when you Use AI AVATAR. Information collected automatically may include Usage details and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses.
From third parties, for example, our Service Providers (as defined below).
Face Data: We train or AI model with the face data that you provide us as photos.
By using the Face Data, our model is retrained to personalize the model for you.
We do not share your Face Data with any third parties.
Your Face Data is not retained in our servers after the model is trained and your avatars are created. Your uploaded photos including the face data, are deleted permanently from our servers.
2. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US DIRECTLY
When you Use AI AVATAR, you usually provide to us certain information, including your Personal Data:
Photos and (or) videos that you upload to AI AVATAR, for example to use the Magic Avatars feature. Please note that we always delete all metadata that may be associated with your photos and (or) videos by default (including, for example, geotags) before temporarily storing them to our systems.Some editing features may use TrueDepth API (developed by Apple) technologies that provide information about facial position, orientation, and topology. Such information is used only on-device and is never stored on our servers. For more information about TrueDepth API processing of your photos and videos, you may visit the following link. We can access your photos and videos only after you grant us permission to access your camera or your devices’ photo library. You provide such a permission through the request that appears on your mobile device (it may differ depending on your device operating system).

4. HOW WE PROCESS YOUR PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
We care about your privacy. With this in mind, most processing activities occur on your device only. There are, however, two exceptions to it: when you apply Art Styles to your photos and when you generate Avatars, since these functions require sophisticated computing resources to be performed.
Art Styles. To apply Art Styles, you have to upload your original photo to AI AVATAR. At this point, your photo is stored on our servers (provided by Amazon Web Services (USA)). It is needed for your convenience so that you don’t have to re-upload the original photo every time to apply any new Art Style. This also helps you spend less Internet traffic and makes the processing of Art Styled photos faster. We store your original photo on our servers for no longer than 24 hours. After 24 hours your original photo is deleted.
Magic Avatars. In order to generate Magic Avatars, you have to upload 10-20 photos to AI AVATAR. At this point, your photos are stored on our servers (provided by Amazon Web Services (USA)). Then, a copy of the Stable Diffusion model is created to be retrained with your photos to personalize the model and to create your Avatars. Immediately after the successful generation of Avatars, your original photos are deleted from our servers. Your purchased Avatars are stored on our servers so that they remain accessible to you in AI AVATAR at any time and from any device until you decide to delete them.
You can also always request us to delete your photos or Avatars by contacting us at email@example.com
We do not use photos, videos or Avatars to identify any individual user.
We do not use your photos, videos or Avatars for authentication, advertising, or marketing purposes, or to otherwise target a user in a similar manner.
We do not use your photos, videos or Avatars to build a user profile, or otherwise attempt, facilitate, or encourage third parties to identify anonymous users or reconstruct user profiles based on your photos, videos or Avatars.
We do not transfer, share, sell, or otherwise provide your photos, videos or Avatars to advertising platforms, analytics providers, data brokers, information resellers or other such parties.
