If you want to remove an image from the website, you have to contact the webmaster of the site where that image appears and invoke your rights to privacy. However, with the PROtect package, all images with a face similar to yours are automatically blocked from being displayed in the search results.

The “Developer” package is dedicated to entities that have access to technology that can be integrated with external APIs. It doesn’t have to be companies. PimEyes’ facial recognition software might also be used by international, governmental, and local institutions or authorities. It’s not suitable for individuals.
In the PROtect package, you have at your disposal 4 hours/month of professional services during which our agent endeavors to remove your photos from the source websites. At this time our agent will:
- find the owner/administrator of the website where the unwanted image appears
- draft and send DMCA requests/GDPR Takedown Notice on your behalf
- monitor if the photos are removed and report the results of our intervensions.
On average we remove photos from 4 external websites during the month.
Still have questions?Contact our Sales Manager
Usually, it takes us about a month to know the results of our interventions. How long it takes also depends on you - the sooner you provide the information that is necessary to send the Takedown Notice, the earlier we can draft and send it.
If we have succeeded, you’ll be notified immediately after the photo is removed. If the website administrator doesn’t respond to the first request, we will continue to send multiple requests for a month.
We send multiple requests to enforce the website administrators/owners to remove such photos, but if we don’t succeed, you’ll probably have to refer the matter to a lawyer.
Images (or rather particular search results) that have once been hidden are removed from our search engine forever. They won’t reappear in the search results after you cancel your subscription. However, it is possible that an identical photo will appear somewhere on a different website. It will always be a new search result so if you don’t have an active PROtect subscription, you won’t be able to add that photo to the list of blocked images. Therefore, before you cancel your subscription, be sure to think this decision through.
Please perform a new search with a photo that you will use as your model picture (a so-called “Guard”). Then we will need some time to verify if your Guard meets the requirements of a good photo (read about the requirements here). After we accept your model photo all the results that match your face will be automatically hidden from being displayed.
Yes, it is possible. Please find the pink button with a trash bin icon (it is located on every photo in the search results) and click it. The picture will be automatically added to the list of hidden images.
We use the Takedown Notices to enforce the removal of photos published without your consent on external websites. A Takedown Notice is a formal document sent to the website’s owner or administrator containing your personal data and indicating the reason why a particular photo violates your rights. The DMCA Takedown Notice refers to copyright infringement and the GDPR Takedown Notice to the violation of your image rights.
We need your personal data to send DMCA & GDPR Takedown Notices. We can’t send these requests anonymously.
You may have doubts about disclosing your personal data to the entity that has been using your photo illegally. We can understand that, but sending the DMCA & GDPR Takedown Notices requires information about the person whose rights have been violated. In this situation, you can fill in the form once and then always choose which particular webmaster you want us to send the requests to. Until you order a specific photo to be removed, we won’t send any notices containing your personal data.
Your Guard is inactive. That means it does not search for photos containing the faces defined by your Guard. You also won’t be able to add new search results to the list of blocked images.
The “Guard” is a photo/are photos that we use as your model picture to find images with faces similar to yours. You can set only one Guard for your account, but it can contain up to 3 pictures of yourself.
