Welcome to GLAM, a Myna Labs app. GLAM (“App” / “GLAM”) and all of its associated websites including getglam.app and its associated content, products and services (“Services”) are owned and operated by Myna Labs, Inc (“Myna Labs”).
At Myna Labs, your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. To provide our users with the highest levels of data protection, as well as assurance that we will not misuse your information, Myna Labs is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) as stated below.
A small note on how AI Avatars feature works:
- GLAM uses a Neural Network Model Stable Diffusion that allows users to generate personalized AI Avatars (“Avatars”).
- Users upload 10 to 20 photos and select their gender.
- Using these data, a copy of the Stable Diffusion model is retrained to personalize the model
- After the model copy is retrained, it generates the Avatars
- After the Avatars are generated, the copy of the model, along with uploaded photos, are deleted permanently from our servers
- We do not use your Personal Data to generally train and/or create our separate artificial intelligence/products.
We do our best to moderate the parameters of the Stable Diffusion model, however, it is still possible that you may encounter content that you may see as inappropriate for you.
By Using GLAM, you understand and agree that we are providing you with tools for editing and adjusting photos and videos that you upload, and, if you so request, for generating or creating new content from them, for example with our AI Avatars feature.

An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.
AI Avatars: In order to generate AI Avatars, you have to upload 10-20 photos to GLAM. At this point, your photos are stored on our servers (provided by Amazon Web Services (USA)). Then, a copy of the Stable Diffusion model is created to be retrained with your photos to personalize the model and to create your Avatars. Immediately after the successful generation of Avatars, your original photos are deleted from our servers. Your purchased Avatars are stored on our servers so that they remain accessible to you in GLAM at any time and from any device until you decide to delete them.
How we process your photos
With regard to your photos, most processing activities take place on your device, however there are exceptions to this rule when you generate AI avatars. When you generate AI avatars, the photos that you have uploaded to GLAM or those selected by GLAM from your cameral roll/ library are stored on our servers (provided by Amazon Web Services (USA)). Then, a copy of the Stable Diffusion model is created to be retrained with your photos to personalize the model and to create your Avatars. Immediately after the successful generation of Avatars, your original photos are deleted from our servers. Your purchased Avatars are stored on our servers so that they remain accessible to you in GLAM at any time and from any device until you decide to delete them.

Additionally, we may use anonymized information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences.

- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
