We are a company registered in England and Wales (registration number 03135828); the address of our registered office is Image House, East Tyndall Street, Cardiff CF24 5EF. We are registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner's Office (registration number ZA084981).

Clickfoto 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 Clickfoto Terms of Use.

What personal information do we collect about you?

When you access and move around Clickfoto, register an Account with Clickfoto or purchase a Product from Clickfoto, 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 Clickfoto;
- Your preferences about receiving communications from Clickfoto;
- Information about your use of Clickfoto 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.

How do we use your personal information?

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

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 Clickfoto products and services to you;
- To tailor aspects of your experience of Clickfoto;
- 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;
- 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.

The processing of personal data is carried out for the provision of the photographic services and the associated sale of captured images and their electronic transmission or production on photo products and delivery to customers, and in particular also to carry out our contracts or pre-contractual measures with you, as well as the execution of your orders. The purposes of data processing are primarily obligations arising from the sales contract in which you enter with us by placing an order in our shop and can include, among other things, reminders of important events. You can find further details about the purpose of data processing in the respective terms and conditions.

If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract in order to protect our own legitimate interests or those of third parties. For: advertising or market and opinion research, insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data; the enforcement of legal claims and defence in legal disputes; ensuring IT security; prevention and investigation of criminal offences; measures for business management and further development of services and products.

We also process personal data when you contact us through our contact screen. We process any data you include in the screen. This is needed to process and respond to your inquiry or request. As soon as your inquiry or request has been solved, we delete your data.

Should we be engaged in events where our photographic services have been used to take pictures, we process the personal data obtained there on the basis of the justified interest to fulfil the order given to us and to offer it for purchase. If this is the case, we shall refer to the photographs of the persons present during the event, as well as to a right of objection. Please note that an objection only takes effect in the future. All processing carried out until then remains unaffected.

If you have given us consent to the processing of personal data for certain purposes (e.g. publication or use of images), the legality of such processing is based on your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. Please note that the revocation only takes effect in the future. Processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected.

We also process personal data on the basis of legal requirements. For example, we store invoice data (name, address) on the basis of existing legislation, such as the retention obligations.

We do not store a Payment Method or payment information. Each order is processed by Stripe, 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 Clickfoto 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 Clickfoto. For example, we may automatically log which parts of Clickfoto you access, which web browser you deploy and the website from which you linked to Clickfoto. You cannot be identified from any of this information. It enables us to compile statistics about the use of Clickfoto, and to help target aspects of Clickfoto 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)
- To enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements to which you are party, or to protect our rights.

How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for one year after completion of your last contract with us.

How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

We will only store your personal data in our own secure data centre in Cardiff, UK. This means that it will be fully compliant with the GDPR.

Is there a duty for me to provide data?

In the context of our business relationship, you must provide only the personal data necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of a business relationship or for which we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will usually have to reject the conclusion of the contract or the execution of the order or will no longer be able to execute an existing contract and may have to terminate. Furthermore, it is necessary for us to request additional data for the provision of paid services, including how to process your desired payment method.

Notification of important events

When you register to receive our notifications by email and/or SMS, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. We log your consent to receive the notification, including your IP address. No further data will be collected. The data will only be used for sending notifications and will be passed on to third parties only for the purpose of delivery. You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data and their use for sending notifications at any time. In each notification you will find an applicable link for revocation; in addition you can always send an objection by email to Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. Processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected.

Email and Text preferences

The emails and mobile communication (such as text (SMS) and “push” notification) we send to you fall into two categories:
Emails (we call them newsletters) and mobile communication (such as text (SMS) and “push” notification) (we call them messaging alerts) which provide you with information about offers, new Products and other things that we think may interest you or Clickfoto customers generally.

- To remind you that you have an Account
- Should you wish to, you can opt out of receiving the above Service Messages by emailing
- Should you wish to, you can opt out of receiving our service emails by emailing

While we do our best to act on your preferences as soon as we reasonably can, please be aware that it may take up to 14 days for changes to your preferences concerning Service Messages to take effect.

Please note that (a) emails that we need to send you relating directly to your orders and purchases from Clickfoto (such as order and dispatch confirmation emails), and (b) emails which notify you of changes to our Terms of Use, or to policies we apply under our Terms of Use, are unaffected by your preferences for newsletters and Service Messages; you cannot opt-out of receiving these emails.
