At MeMeme, your privacy and the protection of your data is our top priority. All data collected, both personal and non-personal, is protected with the highest global standards. As we believe your personal data is and should always remain yours, we have a strong privacy policy in place. This policy is fully compliant with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as the related laws and regulations in place at Singapore.

The contents of this privacy policy are applicable to the website and mobile app MeMemes, use of the services provided by this site and the mobile app to the user.

1. Notice
Whenever we request information that can be used to personally identify you, you will explicitly be asked to provide it and/or give us permission to use it. This information is requested by our system whenever confirmation of your permission is required to continue (e.g. asking for permission for the use of cookies when you visit our site, asking for your payment information when you sign up).

2. Your consent
You will always have the choice whether to give us permission to process your information or not.

With data that is not essential to the core functionality of our services (e.g. cookies for marketing purposes, company name, etc.) you are able to decline permission without any consequences to your access to MeMeme.

If you choose to decline the use of essential information for the use of our services (e.g. essential cookies, payment information, e-mail address), we will be unable to give you access to all aspects of MeMeme that require such information to function. Whether any given information is essential to our services or not will be explicitly indicated when you are asked to provide or give permission for us to use such information.

By agreeing to this privacy policy and providing us with your personal information you consent to us processing said information as described in this privacy policy.

3. Usage
3.1. Data we collect
We collect various forms of personal identifiable information. This includes all information which could directly be used to identify you. This includes your name, e-mail address, payment information and more.

We also collect data based on your usage of our platform with our optional cookies. This data is collected and processed fully anonymously, meaning it can not be traced back to you or your person.

3.2. How we process, share, and retain your photos, and image data
We process your photos to provide you with the features of the MeMemes application that you choose to Use. In doing so, when you upload photos MeMemes, we process your photos using technology that identifies data that is in the photos and provides us with information, such as information about your facial position, orientation and topology (“Face Data”), and other elements of your photo (collectively, “Image Data”). The following describes how we process, share, and retain your photos, videos and Image Data in connection with various features of the MeMemes app. Please note, however, that we may retain your data for longer time periods than set forth below where required to do so by law.

  • Photo & Video Editing (other than Art Styles). When you upload photos for editing, we will automatically apply technology that generates Image Data. This processing only occurs on your device and is not stored on our servers unless you choose to apply Art Styles to a photo.
  • Meme Avatars. To generate Meme Avatars, you must upload 3-10 photos to MeMemes and select a gender to be associated with the Avatar. The photos you upload are stored on our servers, which are hosted by Amazon Web Services (USA). The Meme Avatars feature relies on the Stable Diffusion model. We create a copy of the Stable Diffusion model, which is hosted on our AWS servers, and apply technology that retrains the model using the photos you uploaded and generates Image Data to create and personalize your Memes. Immediately after the successful generation of Avatars, your original photos, the copy of the Stable Diffusion model, as well as any associated Image Data, are deleted permanently from our AWS servers. We do not Use your Personal Data to train and/or create separate artificial intelligence/products.
  • Your Meme Avatars are stored on our servers (provided by Amazon Web Services (USA)) and are available to you within the MeMemes app at any time, via any device from which you log into the MeMemes application, until you decide to either (i) delete the Avatars or, (ii) delete your MeMemes account. If you delete an Avatar, we will generally process the deletion within 4 hours. If you delete your MeMemes account, we will generally delete your account, including the Avatars in your account, within 4 hours. Please be aware that deleting the MeMemes application from your device does not result in the deletion of your MeMemes account!
3.3. How we use your data
We use your personally identifiable information for the following purposes:
  • Provide you with access to all of MeMeme’s features
  • Process your payments
  • Inform you about important information regarding MeMeme, as well as any other information you choose to opt in to.
  • Contact you to inform you about the status of your order, if there is a problem with your order, if you request us to via our support services, or for other reasons you may opt in to.
We use anonymous usage data to analyze the use of our platform by our users so we can improve our services.

Data regarding the use of our platform by our users may be shared with third parties we work with to improve our services and keep our activities running. This includes organizations like marketing agencies. This data will always be made fully anonymous before it’s shared.

If a legal request for your personally identifiable information or other information regarding you or your person is requested by a federal court, judge or law enforcement, we are legally required to provide them with your personal identifiable information. In these cases, we may do so without your permission and without informing you.

Outside of these three categories, no party outside of MeMeme will ever get access to your personal information unless you specifically grant us permission. If we do wish to share your information with an external party outside of these three categories, we will always explicitly ask you for permission first.
