At House48, our goal is to provide you with inspiration to create the life you love. To achieve this, we personalize the content and ads you see based on information we collect from you and third parties. We only use this information when we have a legitimate legal basis for doing so. We've created this policy to help you understand the information we collect, how we use it, and the choices you have. While some of the concepts may be technical, we've tried to make them as simple and clear as possible. We're happy to answer any questions you have about this policy.

There are two main ways we collect information: when you give it to us, or when you use House48. When you sign up or use the House48 service, you voluntarily share certain information such as your name, email, phone number, photos, and comments. If you connect your House48 account to third-party accounts like Facebook or Google, we'll use information from those accounts to improve your experience. Additionally, when you use House48, we automatically collect technical information such as log data, cookie data, device information, and clickstream data. We use this information to personalize your experience and make inferences about your preferences. For example, if you create a board about travel, we may infer that you're a travel enthusiast.


1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

When you register for or use the House48 service, you have the choice to provide certain personal information such as your name, email address, phone number, photos, Pins, comments, and any other details you wish to share with us. Additionally, you may opt to share your precise location using your device settings or through photos. Even if you choose not to disclose your exact location, we will still use your IP address to estimate it. Moreover, you may also share other details like your gender, age, and preferred language if you prefer to do so.

If you link your TheHouse48 account to your Facebook, Google, or other third-party accounts, we may access data from those accounts such as your friends or contacts to enhance your House48 experience. However, this is subject to the privacy policies or settings of those accounts.

2. We also get technical information when you use TheHouse48

When using House48, certain internet and electronic network activity information is automatically logged, as with any website or mobile application. This information includes log data, which consists of details such as your Internet Protocol address, browser type and settings, searches, and how you use House48. We also use cookies or similar technologies to collect cookie data, such as your language preferences or other settings. Additionally, we collect information about the device you're using, such as the type of device, operating system, and unique identifiers.

Finally, we analyze your activity on House48 to make inferences about your preferences and interests, based on the Pins you click on, boards you create, and any text you add in comments or descriptions. These inferences may include information about your education or professional experience, and can be further informed by linking your House48 account to third-party accounts like Facebook or Google.

3. Our partners and advertisers share information with us

We receive information about your activities outside of House48 from our affiliates, partners, advertisers, and other third parties that we collaborate with. This includes data that we collect from websites or apps that use House48 features, such as our "Save" button, or from our own "Save" button that you install on your browser. In addition, we receive information from online advertisers or third parties to enhance the performance of ads on House48, including your visits to an advertiser's site or your purchases, and to determine the type of ads that are relevant to you. We provide you with options to control how we use this information to personalize your experience and the ads you see on House48 in your Privacy and Data Settings. To learn more about these features, please visit our Help Center.


At House48, we use your information to personalize your experience and improve our product features to make your inspiration-seeking easier and more enjoyable. This includes identifying you when you use House48, recommending posts, and topics that you might like based on your activity, responding to your questions or comments, and suggesting other users and contacts who share similar interests. We also prioritize making House48 safe and secure by reviewing messages and collaborating with law enforcement authorities to identify potential risks to our users and the public.

To further enhance our services, we use analytics and research to understand how people use House48 and develop new features that are tailored to your interests. We also deliver ads that are relevant and interesting to you, generating revenue that allows us to keep our services free. To do this, we use the information we collect to customize ad content and decide which ads to show you. We may also share ad performance information with our partners to improve their ads and provide you with a better experience. You have control over the information we use to personalize ads for you and can manage your settings in our Privacy and Data Settings.

House48 has a legitimate interest in using the information they collect to personalize your experience on the platform by identifying your offsite behavior and suggesting relevant content, such as Pins related to websites you have visited. In such cases, they (or their partners) will obtain necessary consent. However, in other cases, House48 will only use your information with your explicit consent, such as for allowing searching with photos, sending marketing materials, customizing recommendations and ads based on your location, and reporting to ad partners about the performance of their ads using the House48 Tag. Additionally, where House48 uses cookies to show you ads based on your offsite activity, they will obtain your consent as required. This helps House48 personalize the experience for both existing and new users on the platform. More information about House48's use of cookies can be found in their Cookie Policy.


When you use House48's products or services, you are giving us permission to transfer and store your information outside of your home country, which may include the United States. This is necessary for us to fulfill the purposes outlined in our policy. However, it's important to note that the privacy laws and regulations in these countries may not provide the same level of protection as those in your home country. Additionally, authorities in these countries may have different rights to access your personal information.


We aim to offer you simple and meaningful options regarding your information. If you have a House48 account, you can access many of these controls directly through House48 or your account settings. For instance, you can:

- Modify your profile information at any time, choose whether search engines can access your profile, and decide if others can locate your House48 account using your email address.

- Connect or disconnect your House48 account from other services like Facebook, Google, or Twitter. For some services, such as Facebook, you can also decide if you want to publish your House48 activity on that service.

- Manage secret board settings. These boards are visible to you and other board collaborators, and any collaborator can make the board available to anyone else. For example, a collaborator can invite someone new to the board or take an image from the board and share it via email.

- Decide if you want House48 ads that appear on other platforms, websites, or apps to be customized based on your account activities. You can control this by updating your "Personalization" preferences in your settings.

- Choose if you want House48 to share information about your activity on the platform for ad performance reporting. You can adjust this by updating your "Data Personalization" preferences in your settings.

- Close your account anytime. When you close your account, we will deactivate it, remove your boards and Pins, and delete your account data. Please note that we may need to keep your data for legal reasons, such as if we receive a law enforcement request asking us to preserve data. We may also keep some information in our backup systems for a limited time or as required by law.

Additionally, you have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access House48, such as controlling cookies or choosing how and whether your location, photos, contacts, and other data are shared with us. For more information on these options, please refer to the information provided by your device or software provider.


When you use House48, certain information about you is visible to other users and can be accessed through APIs, which are technical tools for sharing information. This includes your public boards and Pins, as well as your profile information. For example, a partner may use a House48 API to study their most popular posts or how their posts are being shared on House48.

In addition to making this public information available through APIs, we may also share your information with other services at your direction. This may include services that you use to sign up for or log in to House48, or services that you choose to link your House48 account to, such as Facebook or Google. When you publish your content on House48 to those services, information about that content will be shared with those services.
