Collecting Personal Information
Personal information is requested whenever you choose to use any of our services or order any of our products.
The type of personal information we request has to do specifically with the type of service you are using or product you are ordering. This Photo Site does not knowingly collect personal information or data from children under the age of 13. To register as a member of this Photo Site and to purchase the services and products offered, the user must be 18 years of age or over.
This Photo Site receives and stores personal data (such as your name, password, address, e-mail address, shipping information, and telephone number).
All credit/debit cards details and personally identifiable information will NOT be stored, sold, shared, rented or leased to any third parties.
When you sign up with us to obtain your photographs from your event visit, you establish a password-protected personal account for storing, organizing and sharing digital images, as well as for using our other services. In order to establish your account, we will need your name, e-mail address, password, and the information contained in the Photo Claim ID provided to you during your event visit.
When you order prints, products or other paid products or services, we will need the shipping address, billing name and address, as well as the credit card number and expiration date. See the Terms for other terms and conditions relating to such purchases, including, without limitation, credit card authorization, refund policy, pricing, and sales tax.
We use this data to process your order and to reply to your e-mail. If you opt into our promotional e-mailing list, we will also use this data to deliver offers, a newsletter and updates by email. You must supply the requested personal data to enable you to view, order or share photos. You can refrain from supplying personal data, but you then will be unable to take full advantage of this Photo Site and the services and products offered.
When you want to share your photographs with others (“Invitees”), we will ask for e-mail addresses of your Invitees.
Any contact with our Guest Service team or communication from you, such as telephone calls or e-mails, may be recorded to help us provide better service.
If you contact us by e-mail (through a hyperlink on a webpage, or otherwise), then we naturally will have your e-mail address and name and any other information in your message. We will use this information only to reply to your message. We will not share your e-mail address with third parties, except as provided herein as per the terms of usage.
The password you select will allow you access to your account; as such, it needs to be as secure as possible. A good password includes seemingly random letters and numbers, and isn’t obvious (such as names of a spouse, child, or pet). You can update your account information and change your password at any time through the “My Account” link on this Photo Site. If you have forgotten your password, you can set a new one by clicking on the “Forgot Password” link on the Welcome Page. You will be responsible for all activities that occur under your password. We will ensure that the password is confidentially secured.
In addition to personal information we also collect non-personally identifying data about visitors to this Photo Site that helps us track their number and navigation through this Photo Site. This data may include the website the user arrived from and departs to as well as the IP address of the computer being used to access this Photo Site. While it may be possible to correlate this information with particular individuals, we do not do so. We use this data only in the aggregate, to show overall patterns for all visitors.
Information We Automatically Collect
Cookies and Invisible Gifs (also known as “Clear Gifs,” “Web Bugs” and “Tracker Gifs”)
If you are uncomfortable with the idea of your information being stored in cookies, we recommend disabling cookie support in your browser, though please understand this will limit the performance and functionality of this Photo Site. Your browser documentation will provide specific procedures for disabling cookie support.
We analyze IP addresses in the aggregate for system administration purposes and to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to your computer’s user ID, with the following exception: when you place an order using our online checkout process we record your computer’s IP address with your order to help us identify fraudulent credit card use. We may share this information with the financial institution that issued the credit-card with which an order was placed, or with law enforcement authorities if we determine, or are notified, that the use of the credit card was fraudulent but don't use this for any other purpose.
Use and Sharing Personal Data
We share personal information with carefully screened third-party service providers for the sole purpose of providing you with the products, services and information you have requested. We may also choose to offer certain third party products through this Photo Site and may disclose certain portions of your personally identifiable information to allow those product producers to fulfill your product order. Examples of such third-party service providers are credit card authorization companies, and merchandise distributors and shippers, which provide various services in connection with this Photo Site and the products and services offered and may take many of the actions described herein. Among the many services MMPL provides in connection with this Photo Site and the services and products, MMPL handles all orders, including credit card authorizations. The third-party service providers do not store, retain or access your information except to provide our services and products to you.
We will give you the opportunity to opt into our promotional e-mailing list in which event we may send you separate e-mail messages announcing events featured in the newsletter. Our promotional e-mailings may inform you of site improvements, feature announcements, offers, newsletters, and occasional third-party promotional offers that may be of interest to you. You can opt out of these messages by unsubscribing through the email received or by selecting the opt out option available through the "My Account" link on the Photo Site.
We use your personal information to make your website experience enjoyable. For example, because we know who you are after you log in, we can present you with the right set of photographs in your password-protected account. We also know where to e-mail you to let you know your order has been shipped.
Note that one reason we are able to offer you relevant promotions is that we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous, non-personal data about our users as a group. We use such information for statistical analysis of user behavior, product development, content improvement and marketing, promotional and advertising purposes. We may also make that aggregate non-personal information available to select third party partners from time to time, at our discretion.
Protecting the Privacy of Photographs
This Photo Site is designed so that you can control who may view the photographs stored in your account. We are committed to keeping your photographs private and secure. Please note that if you share your photographs with your friends or family members and they post your share invitation on a website or forward to other individuals, these photographs may be accessible to others who view the e-mail invitation or visit these websites.
In order to provide quality products, our employees and third-party service providers, fulfilling your order or providing Guest Support to you, may see your photographs.
The photographs must be claimed within 30 days from when they were taken. Photographs not claimed within such 30 days will no longer be available. Once photographs are claimed and associated with a user account, they will be available for viewing, sharing and purchasing for 30 days, after which the photographs will be permanently deleted and the user must carefully note this point.
Protecting the Privacy of Your Friends & Family
Who Sees Your Photographs After They Have Been Posted Online?
You, your Invitees and their Invitees can see your photographs online. An Invitee includes anyone who is invited to this Photo Site to see your photographs.

When you choose to share your online images with Invitees, those individuals will be able to view your photographs. The Invitees will be prohibited from re-sharing the photographs from within their view of the Photo Site. However, as with any e-mail, your Invitees could forward the e-mail invitation to others, who will then be able to click on the link to the photographs within the e-mail, and see the photographs too.
MMPL employees or employees of third party partner companies or service providers that provide services to Photo Site may see your photographs while they are being scanned or printed.
