How we use your data and why.

We respect the fact that your personal data is yours so we only collect what we need to provide you with our services. We use your data to:

Any photos that you upload to the site will only be used to print products that you order on our site. We take every care possible to keep your images safe at all times and we only share your images with those who are printing the products that you order or providing customer support for you.

How long we keep your data.
