You can view many portions of the Site anonymously and without creating an account.  In this case, we may collect anonymous information (i.e., information that cannot, separately or combined, be used to personally identify you) about your visit as set forth below.  If you submit a request for further information about our products, create an account, or purchase products from us via the Site, you may provide certain personally identifiable information, which we may collect.  Additional details on the specific information we collect and how we use the information is provided below.

 

COLLECTION AND USE OF ANONYMOUS INFORMATION

When you visit the Site anonymously (i.e., without logging in), we may automatically collect anonymous information about your visit that will not be used to personally identify you.  This information may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, operating system, client type, whether you came to our Site from one of our advertisers, whether you have previously visited our Site, how long you stayed on our Site, what you viewed on our Site and browser type and version. This information is used for administrative purposes, such as to generate usage statistics, to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, and to ensure that the Site and Service are accessible to the widest possible audience.  Information collected while using the Site anonymously is never tied to a user account or otherwise associated with the identity of a user.

We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from all Site users (collectively, all of the foregoing, the “Aggregate Information”).  The Aggregate Information is used to help us diagnose technical problems, administer the Site, and improve our offerings and marketing.  The Aggregate Information is never linked or otherwise associated with any personally identifiable information that we may collect.

We also use pixel tags, web beacons, and similar tracking technologies (generally known as “cookies”) to track affiliates and to enhance features of the Site.  No personal information is contained within the affiliate cookies.  Cookies used to enhance features of the Site may include login or session management information.  If you don’t want our Site to collect information using cookies, you can change your web browser settings to reject cookies from the site or to alert you before a cookie is placed on your computer. Each browser is different, so you should check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please note that cookie-based opt-outs only apply to the specific computer and browser on which the opt-out cookie is applied. If you accept a cookie, you can delete it at any time through your web browser.

An account may be required to access and use certain areas of the Site and to purchase products via the Site.  To create an account, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information about yourself, including, without limitation, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.  This information is associated with your account.  You will also be required to use a username and password to help restrict access to your account.

We use your personal information to create your account, administer the Site, identify account holders, provide you access to your account, process your orders and provide customer services to you with respect to such orders, send you important communications and as otherwise described below.

Collection from Submissions

The Submissions you choose to upload via the Site, including your photos and the information you store in your address book, may include personal information of others.  If you choose to share your photographs or other information with someone else through a feature we offer, we will use the personal information you provide (for example, the e-mail address of the recipient) to fulfill your request and for other purposes described in this Privacy Policy. Before you upload and/or share personal information of others through our service, please ensure that you have the consent of such persons to do so.

Your Submissions may also include related image information such as the time and the place your photo was taken and similar “metadata” captured by your image capture device. If you wish to restrict the capture of image metadata in your individual photos, please adjust the settings on your image capture device.  We may analyze your photo content and metadata to help you tag and organize your photos and to make personalized product suggestions to you based on those photos, such as showing you how your pictures may look in a collage or other B4 product.

Collection at Checkout:

If you order products from us, we will ask you to provide your credit card information, other payment account/method information or other specific information about you or your payment account as necessary to process your payments. We do not collect or maintain such information on our servers, and such information is used only to process your order and for fraud investigation and protection.  For more information regarding our treatment of payment information, see the section titled “Financial Information”, below.

Other Uses of Your Personal Information 

We may use your personal information to periodically send information that we think you might find of interest from our company or our affiliates such as coupons, bonuses, new products and services, special offers, company news or other important product information.

You always have the option to opt out of our internal marketing communications by indicating your preference in your account settings.  Please note that opting out of receiving these communications will not remove your personal information from our files and we will still contact you as necessary to fulfill your orders and provide you other information at your request.

Third Parties:

We do not sell, share, or rent your personal information to third parties for purposes other than as discussed below.  We will only provide your personal information:

  • to certain third-party providers whose software or services interface or otherwise may receive information from, or provide information to, our Site, but only as necessary to provide you with access to the Site or to fulfill your orders;
  • to our third party vendors who provide services on our behalf. These services may include, but are not limited to, shipping services, payment services, customer or technical support, sales or marketing services and sales analytics.  We will only permit these third parties to access, use and maintain the information that they need in order to provide these services on our behalf and subject to confidentiality obligations. They are prohibited from using the information for any other purpose;
  • to a third party that may acquire our business; or
  • to comply with any legal obligation, subpoena or other court order, to cooperate with appropriate law enforcement agencies and other parties involved in investigating claims of illegal or inappropriate activity, and as necessary to enforce any of our Terms or to protect the rights, property or safety of our systems and network for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

 

PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We take your privacy and the protection of your personal information very seriously.  While no service provider can guarantee absolute security when communicating over the internet or wireless networks, we are committed to taking steps to help secure any personal information that may be in our possession.  For example, we use electronic security measures, including encryption, passwords, and SSL network connections, all of which are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure, consistent with industry standards.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password used to log in, if any, and you should always be mindful and responsible whenever disclosing information online that the information is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, could be collected and used by others without your consent.

 

FINANCIAL INFORMATION FOR CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS

We charge for all our products in advance and accept payment via credit card and other payment methods that are posted on our checkout page.  We use a third party to process each credit card transaction and do not store or receive directly any payment information; all such information is stored with our third party payment processor.  All credit card transactions are processed over a network secured using an encryption protocol, such as SSL or 3DES.

 

SUBMITTED CONTENT

By submitting or posting information, materials or content via the Site, you agree that we can further distribute such content as described in the Terms under “Submissions.”  You agree that you have no expectation of or right to privacy with respect to such Submissions, except for any limits on our ability to use or distribute such content as set forth in the Terms or this Privacy Policy.
