We do not collect any photos physically nor photo links in database. Photos are shown directly from Instagram using Instagram API. Private photos are not shown because Instagram API doesn't allow access to them. If you see a photo on Lefthit.com it is a public photo and if a user later marks it as a private on Instagram you will not be able to see that photo anymore on Lefthit.com.
We collect nothing permanently about photos from Instagram using database. Everything regarding photos (the photo itself, likes, comments, the owner) are being displayed directly from Instagram. This means that if the owner of the photo (Instagram user) changes something about the photo (makes it private or deletes it) it will instantly affect the displaying of that photo here on Lefthit.com
We do not collect Instagram user's data such as user's photos, usernames, avatars, comments or likes.
Visitors can sign in with Instagram account. After a user signs in, his basic personal data is being saved in our data base: Instagram username, full name, profile picture, Instagram ID. Every time user returns to website and signs in, a new data from Instagram is being fetched and updated in our database. All other users' data like photos, followers, likes, comments are not being saved but fetched directly from Instagram.
