Privacy Policy


Your privacy is very important to us at The Skindex. To our best efforts, we have developed this Policy to help you understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Information Collected

We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the service provided to you. We log the IP addresses of visitors to help prevent malicious activities on our site.

Age Restrictions

Only users that are 13 years old or older are allowed to sign up for an account. Users residing in the EU have to be 16 years old or older.


We need your email and username (not your real name) to identify you as a unique individual when signing up. Your email is also used to send you information such as your password recovery information and notification of events related to your account, such as comments, when some member you are following uploads a new skin, or when you have a new follower.

Your email notifications are enabled by default. You can choose to disable them here. We do not disclose your email address to 3rd parties unless required by law. We do NOT recommend that you use your real name as your username. It is a violation of this privacy policy to reveal your identity in your username if you are located in the EEA.

Your IP address is logged for the sole purpose of moderation to prevent any abuse of services provided to you by this site. Only our administrators can view your IP address, and it will not be shared with 3rd parties.

Ad Partners and Data Usage

Our website utilizes cookies and web beacons from advertising partners. These third-party ad servers or networks employ technology to deliver advertisements and links directly to your browsers. They may automatically collect your IP address and use other technologies like cookies and web beacons to measure ad effectiveness and personalize advertising content.

Information Sharing

When you use our website, we may share collected data such as your IP address, browser/operating system information, or hashed email with our identity partners/service providers, including InMobi (a Consent Management Platform), LiveRamp (a Consent Management Platform), CPMStar, Pubmatic, Inc, Exponential Interactive, Inc, and Google, Inc. These partners provide an online identification code, which may be stored in our first-party cookie for use in online, in-app, and cross-channel advertising. This data may also be shared with advertising companies to facilitate interest-based and targeted advertising.

When you enter your email address on our website (either to log in, or to sign up to a newsletter, or similar) or when you use our app, we may share personal data or other information that we collect from you, such as your email (in hashed, pseudonymous form), mobile advertising identifier, IP address, or information about your browser or operating system, with our partner LiveRamp and its group companies, acting as joint controllers. LiveRamp uses this information to create an online identification code for the purpose of recognising you on your devices. This code does not contain any of your identifiable personal data and will not be used by LiveRamp to re-identify you. We place this code in our first party cookie or a LiveRamp cookie and allow it to be used for online and cross-channel advertising. It may be shared with our advertising partners and other third party advertising companies globally for the purpose of enabling interest-based content or targeted advertising throughout your online experience (e.g. web, email, connected devices, and in-app, etc). Detailed information on LiveRamp’s data processing activities is available in LiveRamp’s privacy policy and opt-out here: You have the right to withdraw your consent or opt-out to the processing of your personal data at any time.
