Privacy by Design

Photoprivy was founded on the belief that children’s online privacy is imperative and should be protected from outside forces that want to do harm to them or their families. Photoprivy is developing a platform for parents to share their children’s photos, trusting that only the people they invite will have access to those photos. Our users’ privacy is, and always will be, our first priority. Your data is yours and not ours to sell.

Who we are

We are a privacy-focused social media platform. Giving you peace of mind when sharing your photos with friends and family.

Only the people you give access to see your Stories will have access to view the photos in that Story.

Privacy by Design Principles

Privacy must be proactive, not reactive

We do not wait for privacy risks to materialize. Instead, we take a proactive approach and think about protecting your data and limiting privacy leaks when designing a new feature or integrating with a third-party.

Privacy as the default setting

We seek to deliver the maximum level of privacy so that you don't have to do any additional steps on Photoprivy to ensure your privacy.

Privacy embedded into the design

Privacy is not an add-on. It is built into our business model and is a part of who we are.

Full functionality – positive-sum, not zero-sum

Privacy is a "win-win," and you do not have to make any trade-offs to gain the full functionality of Photoprivy.

End-to-end security – full lifecycle protection

We act responsibly with your data from when you enter it when the system stores the data.

Visibility and transparency – keep it open

We seek to be as transparent as possible with how we use your data, what data we're collecting, and what information third-parties receive from us, such as our analytics and payment processors.

Respect for user privacy – keep it user-centric

We keep your privacy interests in mind and be transparent with any changes or updates to our privacy policy.

If you have any suggestions or feedback on how well we are meeting these principles, we would love to hear from you. Let us know at

Why a Fox?

The founder's last name is Fawks and is pronounced just like fox [foks]. So the fox icon is his way of reminding him that his son gave him the idea and is the inspiration for the site. It is also a reminder that any business decisions will affect his son's information and privacy. If he doesn't want it for his son's photos, then he will not allow it for your photos.
