Colorfoto is committed to respecting the privacy rights of visitors to its Site and App. This privacy policy explains how we collect, store and use personal data about you when you visit the Site or App, buy Products from us or otherwise provide your personal data to us. It provides you with details about the types of personal data that we collect from you, how we use your personal data and the rights you have to control our use of your personal data. Words used in this Privacy Policy have the same meaning as is attributed to them in the Colorfoto Terms of Use.

What personal information do we collect about you ?

When you access and move around Colorfoto, register an Account with Colorfoto or purchase a Product from Colorfoto, we may collect some or all of the following personal data about you

– name, a username and password;
– billing and delivery addresses, email address and phone number(s);
– your Images and other User Content;
– correspondence with and from Colorfoto;
– your preferences about receiving communications from Colorfoto;
– information about your use of Colorfoto and your browsing and online purchasing activities; and details we may ask you to submit to verify your identity.
– We may also collect some of this personal data from third parties who have your consent to pass your details to us.
– In order to take advantage of some of our Services, you may need to supply us with the personal details of a third party (for example, their name and address if you wish to send a Product to them as a gift). We will not use this information for anything other than providing the Services for which the information was supplied.
– We may disclose your first name and last name to selected third parties, including but not limited to Pro-Gallery owners from whom you have purchased items. The purpose of this is so that a record may be kept by the third parties of who has purchased Products from them. It is a condition of your use of our Services that you agree to the disclosure of this data.

How do we use your personal information ?

Your personal data will be collected, processed, stored and used by us, and passed to and processed by our subsidiary and/or affiliated companies and other data processors and controllers acting under contract with us:

– to provide Colorfoto to you;
– to tailor aspects of your experience of Colorfoto;
– to contact you to provide examples of Products bearing your Images we think might interest you;
– to create personalised Products selected by you;
– to associate your Account and your Product purchases with you and to verify your identity;
– if you elect to store a Payment Method with us, to associate that Payment Method with you when you place an order;
– to associate your Account and your Product purchases with you and to verify your identity;
– to process payments you make for Products;
– to provide customer support;
– to contact you by email and mobile communication (such as text (SMS) and “push” notification);
– for customer satisfaction and customer experience improvement purposes;
– in connection with the prevention and detection of fraud and other crime.

We do not store a Payment Method or payment information. Each order is processed by Card Save, our debit/credit card payment service provider. Your Payment Method will be required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Note that, when using a Payment Method to make payment for your Colorfoto order, certain techniques will be used to assist in maintaining the security of the details of your stored Payment Method. For example, not all of the payment card number will be visible to you (typically, all except the final four digits will be masked), and you will be required to provide certain information (such as, but not limited to, a CV2 card security number) in order to proceed with using that Payment Method.

We may automatically collect anonymous information about your use of Colorfoto. For example, we may automatically log which parts of Colorfoto you access, which web browser you deploy and the website from which you linked to Colorfoto. You cannot be identified from any of this information. It enables us to compile statistics about the use of Colorfoto, and to help target aspects of Colorfoto and advertising to you more accurately.

Disclosing your personal data

We will not disclose any of your personal data, other than to subsidiary and/or affiliated companies and data processors (including payment service providers) under contract with us, without your permission unless:

– we are legally entitled to do so (for example, pursuant to a court order or for the purposes of prevention or detection of crime or fraud);
– we are in negotiations with a third party for the sale or purchase of any of Colorfoto’s business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
– Colorfoto, or substantially all of its assets, is acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by Colorfoto about its customers will be one of the transferred assets; or
– to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements to which you are party, or to protect our rights, property, safety, customers, or others.
