• Immersive, cinematic quality Photo Experiences

    More than just a photo booth, our Beauty Bot system captures stunning, uniquely branded photographs, consumer data, and most importantly, attention to your brand. Our Friend.Vu image distribution platform politely connects with consumers beyond the on-site experience integrating with online initiatives and social media channels.

    Working with a broad range of clients and industries garners the Polite in Public Team opportunities to craft dynamic, engaging, exceptionally visual experiential photo solutions for any initiative.

    But we think our work speaks for itself.

  • More Impessions. More Places. More than a Photobooth.

    What This Privacy Policy Covers

    This policy covers how Polite in Public treats personal information that Polite in Public collects and receives, including information related to your past use of Polite in Public products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, birth date, gender, ZIP code, occupation, industry, and personal interests.

    Personal Information

    When you sign up for Polite in Public we ask you to provide your email address, birthdate, zip code, mobile phone number, mobile carrier and answer questions regarding your personal preferences.

    We use your email address to send you updates and information about Polite in Public projects. If you do not wish to receive email correspondence from Polite in Public, you can opt out at any time.

    We use your mobile phone number and carrier information to send you images you request on the website in the form of SMS text messages. Files and SMS text messages will only be sent by your request.

    The personal preferences you fill out help us to customize your Polite in Public experience. You will never hear from Polite in Public regarding projects or information you have not previously told us you are interested in.

    Cookies and IP Addresses

    Like many other sites on the Internet, we may use standard web technologies that automatically gather certain statistics and technical information about traffic to our Sites. For example, we may use a “cookie” (a small text file or record-keeping device that websites often store on a user’s computer) so we can tell whether you visited our Sites before. Through the use of log files or web logs, we may also record certain information about your visit to our Sites, including the type of browser you used, your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) Address (assigned by your Internet Service Provider), date and time of your visit, and which pages you clicked on. This information allows us to assess overall Site activity, track interest in particular portions of our Sites, and troubleshoot technical problems. The information collected does not identify you personally or tell us who you are.

    Through the settings of your Internet browser, you can always disable or delete cookies, or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your computer. To do this, go to the Tools tab of your Internet browser, select Options or Internet Options, and then choose the Privacy tab to make your selections. Please note that if you choose to disable cookies, certain features on our Sites may not be available or work properly.

    Special Information About Members and Age Requirements

    Polite in Public recognizes the importance of protecting children online and, to this end, is committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Our Web Sites do not collect any personal information from children. We encourage parents to stay actively involved in their children’s online activities and to exercise caution when their children are asked to provide personal information online.

    Polite in Public is designed for users 13 and older. Prospective members 13 - 17 should get their parents’ permission to join the site. Galleries containing mature content are intended for members 17 and older. No one under the age of 17 will be allowed to view galleries intended for mature audiences.

    Information Sharing and Disclosure

    Polite in Public does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

    We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Polite in Public under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help Polite in Public communicate with you about offers from Polite in Public and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.

    We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

    We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Polite in Public’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

    We transfer information about you if Polite in Public is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Polite in Public will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

    Polite in Public displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria—for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. Polite In Public neither endorses the advertised product nor reviews the advertisers website.

    Polite in Public does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

    Confidentiality and Security

    We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
    We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.

    Changes to this Privacy Policy

    Polite in Public may update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your Polite in Public account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
