Creating an account is completely free. We collect BPI, which is used to access your account, allow other registered users to search you, send notification e-mails and promotional e-mails. You can deactivate your account if you decide to longer use Pixilart. Deactivating your account prevents anyone from viewing your account until it is re-activated. You can re-activate your account by logging back in. If you wish to prevent Google and other search engines from viewing your account or drawings - you can 'Deactivate' your account in your settings. You can also set your drawings to private or delete your drawings to prevent search engine indexing.
We cannot guarantee the information we collect is completely secure. The Internet and its ability to transmit data isn't flawless, and there is no current method of guaranteeing complete security. However, we will do our best to protect and secure your information.
Pixilart has an option to set images to 'private', 'unlisted', and 'public'. Private images are images that only the account creator and admins can see. Setting a drawing to private will prevent Google and other search engines from indexing that drawing. Unlisted images are protected images that are only viewable by URL. Public images are images that show in profile and public galleries.
