First of all: We, the Screenshot Easy development team, are not interested in your data. We do neither collect, store, process nor sell any personal data from our users. We depend on third party services e.g. to run this website, manage our codebase or receive donations. Depending on your usage of these services (like anything else you visit or use on the internet), those parties can collect data about you.
Beneath donations, advertisements are one of the few ways to generate at least a small revenue to compensate for the time and effort we have spent over the years (and are still spending) to offer this free piece of software. For that reason, we have integrated Google Adsense into our site, carefully choosing positions to make sure the ads do not obstruct your use of our page. We also took care to clearly mark advertisements as such and visually separate them from our page content, to avoid accidental clicks. Google and its partners can access the same basic data as any other website/service you visit or download files from (see above), in addition they use third party cookies to make sure the displayed ads fit your interests as good as possible.
Cookies are small amounts of data that websites can store in your browser, e.g. to store website-specific settings or a unique identifier to see whether you have visited the website before.
We use few first-party cookies (i.e. cookies that are placed on behalf of screenshoteasy.com) on our website, some are technically necessary in order to safely operate our site, others are important for us to understand how visitors use this website.
Except upload your screenshot image to our server (if you request Screenshot Easy to upload), our application does not send any data to our or any other servers.
By default, Screenshot Easy checks for updates in order to notify you in case a newer version is available. It does so by sending an HTTP request to a specific file hosted with our website, which contains information about the latest version.
Several plugins available for Screenshot Easy allow to conveniently upload screenshots third party web applications or to share screenshots with others.
