2.2. Further Information on How We Process Face Data

Allowing its Users to compare any face with the celebrities and find out which celebrity they look like, My Ancestry – Celebrity Look Alike inevitably requires face data to make such comparisons. In order for this functionality to be possible, the app requires access to your device’s camera and/or photos already stored in your device. This access can be toggled on or off at any time in your device’s settings.

In doing so, we use a third-party algorithm offered by famousdetails.com . The method detects the faces in the image provided by Users and extracts facial features into a feature vector. Later, extracted feature vectors are used to perform face match.

The camera images and resulting data (feature vectors) are only used for the purposes of comparison. Once a session is complete we do not retain any of this facial data. Facial data is never stored to a disk. We do not perform facial recognition on your facial data.

The app does not sync face data to a server or cloud. It is only transferred to and processed by Amazon Rekognition to obtain feature vectors from the face data provided and search celebrities collection for matching faces.

In addition to famousdetails.com, we use free API service offered by a trusted third-party sightengine.com. Based on that images are neither stored nor used by the third-party service provider for improving the model or underlying algorithm.

The app does not sync face data to a server or cloud. The camera images and resulting data (feature vectors) are only used for the purposes of comparison. Once a session is completed we do not retain any of this facial data. Facial data is never stored to a disk. We do not perform facial recognition on your facial data.
