Where do we get personal information?

In most cases the personal information will be provided directly by you, the customer. We ask you to register your personal information such as name, address, phone number and email when you register your customer account or shop with us. It is voluntary to give this personal information, but in many cases it will be necessary for the use of our services and for us to be able to handle your orders efficiently.

In some cases we will retrieve information from other open sources like telephone registries (i.e. or company information from Brønnøysundregistrene. This retrieval of information is not automated and is done in cases where the information we have is outdated or lacking so that we cannot complete services or obligations we have to you as a customer in a satisfactory way.

Depending on wich of our services you are using, we will be processing the following categories of information:

  • Name and contact information

The information that is collected is about which pages you visit, how long you stay at each page, which part of the country you are, and technical information about the device you are using, such as browser version, operating system etc.

We also use tracking on ads and newsletters to track clicks from ads that lead to sales. This makes it possible for us to see which ads give the best results and make ads that are relevant to previous visitors of our websites.

How long do we store personal information?

Your personal information is stored as long as you have an open customer account with us.

Photographs and/or image files uploaded to our ordering portal for prints are deleted from the online ordering portal automatically after 6 months. Orders that contain customer images are kept for 1 year on our internal servers before they are deleted and image orders that are produced/printed and ready for pickup in our store are kept for 1 year before they are removed and destroyed/shredded.

You are free to close your account with us at any time and by doing this delete your personal information. You can do this yourself when logged in to your customer account or you can contact us to have it done.

Who do we share personal information with?

In some cases we have to share information with our partners to be able to deliver orders and complete the obligations we have to you as a customer. Here is an overview of what situations those are, who our partners are, and what kind of information we need to share.

  • In some cases there will be a need to share order or customer information with our partners that run, maintain and develop our computer systems such as accounting, logistics, internet shop and image products ordering portal. This will be done on a case-by-case basis in relation to any errors, maintenance or instances where we need assistance from our partner.
  • To be able to deliver orders we use shipping companies. To complete the shipping we need to share information such as name, address, phone number and email address. We primarily use Posten and PostNord for shipping. On occasion we may use other shipping companies for specialty or express shipping.
  • Some payment alternatives are processed through partners such as Nets or Santander.
  • While we do most of our photo production in-house, we use partners for some products like photobooks, double cards, conversion of film/video and similar. Our partners will have access to name, address, phone number, email address as well as necessary image and/or video material to complete the order.
  • If a product needs to be repaired or serviced we will use workshops authorized by the manufacturer. They will get customer name, contact information and any copies of receipt or proofs of warranty.

How does our processing of personal information affect you?

By letting us process your personal information you let us handle your orders and requests efficiently. You will not have to repeat information every time you order something and we will be able to help you quickly if you have questions about your products, previous orders and order documents such as copies of receipts.

Storing and processing personal information will always have a risk that the information could be compromised by an outsider. We do not store information about payment cards or sensitive personal information. The information we store, with the exception of images, passwords and usernames, is often publicly available information. The information we do store is encrypted and stored with professional partners that ensure that their systems are secure. Because of this we consider the risk of data compromise very small, but you should know that there will always be a risk involved in giving out you personal data.
