Who we are
We have included below information about which data is collected, how we process and use your data, but before, we would like to explain the basis on which we do so:
i) Where you sign up for any of our services, we process your personal data in order to perform our services;
ii) If we have a legitimate interest in processing data, such as for direct marketing or online identifiers when you access our Site; or
iii) We will also process your personal data where you have provided us with consent to do so.
1. What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Depending on your interaction with us (meaning, if you are just browsing our Site, or if you have registered to our Services and opened an account, etc.), we may collect two types of information you, as follows:
(i) Non-Personal Data: The first type of information is non-identifiable information which may be made available or gathered through your use of the Services. To clarify, we are not aware of your identity due to such information (“Non-Personal Information”). The Non-Personal Information which is being collected may include your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted or automatically (but not limited to): the time and date you access our Site or a Gallery (e.g., pictures used, pages viewed, etc.) and approximate geo-location.
(ii) Personal Data: The second type of information is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes either: (a) contact information such as your name, email address, etc., which you have submitted voluntarily; or (b) your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (the addresses of computers on the Internet). Note that, while IP is considered personally identifiable information in many jurisdictions (such as the EEA), there are some jurisdictions in which such data is not considered as Personal Information. Therefore, we treat such information as Personal Information, in accordance with applicable laws. The IP is collected by our third party analytic partners that offer ways to opt-out, all as detailed below. You are not required by law to provide us with any information. You can always avoid from providing us certain Personal Information; however, you acknowledge that it may prevent you from engaging in certain Services. In the event we combine Personal Information with Non-Personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.
2. How we Collect Information
Depending on the nature of your interaction with the Services, we may collect information as follows:
(ii) Provided by you voluntarily – we will collect information if and when you choose to provide us with the information, such as through a registration process, newsletter registration, contact us communications, etc.
3. Disclosure of Information
We make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose Personal Information only if required to do so by law or when necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Site. We may also share your information with:
(i) A third party performing services on our behalf such as payment processing and printing who has agreed to keep such information
confidential (such as the processing of your credit card payment if applicable or the conduct of an online survey, for example.)
4. Securing the Information
Our servers hold no personal information about you other than your username/email address and we hold no financial information on our web server at any time. We take reasonable technical measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of the information collected against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data.
5. Information You Share
Through our third-party services (Pic-Time & others) we allow you to share information (including low-res photos which are uploaded to your personal gallery) with others. Remember that when you share information with another person, that person can then share that information with others. For example, when you give permission to another person to view your photos, that person is then able to print your photos and, also, to share them with others potentially violating copyright law and opening them up to legal and civil liability. The print-release (located in your personal client gallery) is a legally binding license which governs the permissible use of the photographs within the gallery.
(i) Google Analytics this cookie is placed in order to track and analyze the use of our Services, for internal purposes. To learn more about how Google uses data from our use of Google Analytics Cookies, we recommend you review Google’s policies located at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners. We also encourage you to review the Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web tool available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
9. Retention and Storage of the Information We Collect
We will retain your information for a reasonable time to permit us to use it for the purposes that we have communicated to you. We may use the services of third party companies to physically collect and store your information on our behalf. Any such companies will have to comply with the terms of this policy.
