1. Data Guarantees

Due to the nature of the work we do, we cannot guarantee that that your images can remain secure and uncorrupt, and we may prune them from our network at any time without notice, and as such, you should not rely on us to keep copies of your images after the order has been completed. We will also try our best to ensure any personal information of yours does not leave us, but there may be a circumstance of this happening.

2. Cancellations, Returns and Refunds policy

Due to the nature of the orders we take, almost all orders are exempt from right of cancellation in accordance with Regulation 13 of The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, wherein paragraph (1)(c), states that---

" Unless the parties have agreed otherwise, the consumer will not have the right to cancelthe contract by giving notice of cancellation pursuant to regulation 10 in respect of contracts [...] for the supply of goods made to the consumer's specification or clearly personalised or which byr eason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;"

and as a result, any requests for refunds upon attempt to return products may be refused on these grounds. In some circumstances however a refund may be offered, either in full or partial, despite the order possibly already having been undertaken, but this is entirely at the discretion of the staff member in correspondence or the managers.
