Privacy Policy


idphoto (idphoto GmbH) is obliged to treat your data confidentially. We reserve the right to adapt this content from time to time and therefore we invite you to read it occasionally.

Your data you send to us is never passed on to third parties.

You can use our passport photo generator without giving any personal data if you do not order your passport photo, but only download it for free. If so, the uploaded image of the passport is not associated with personal data.

Registration on our site is not required. All data necessary for the order can be specified at it again and be associated with any profile. If desired, it is possible to create a customer account.

A further safety precaution is to clear your browser cache after the use of idphoto. For this function, see your browser usually under the menu item tools (Firefox: Tools >clear private data; Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet Options > Clear history/cache; Chrome: "Wrench" > options > clear browsing data). This feature ensures that no stranger can access to your personal information, if you are not working as the only one on this PC.
