Lifetouch Photo Gift Center - Terms & Conditions of Service
Your Use of This Website is Governed by These Terms and Conditions
Please take a few minutes to review these Terms and Conditions and our associated Privacy Statement. Your use of this website constitutes your agreement to follow these rules and to be bound by them. Any account you establish and any order for products placed through this website will be subject to these Terms and Conditions.
In these terms and conditions, we use the terms "Lifetouch," "we," "our" and "us" to designate Lifetouch National School Studios Inc.
User Accounts, Photo Security and Sharing
For students photographed by Lifetouch and attending a participating school, initial photo access claim codes are distributed to parents and are valid for a single use only. When you first visit this website you will have an opportunity to set up a password-protected User Account. When you create a User Account and enter your photo access codes to claim your child’s photo, you are authorizing Lifetouch to transmit it to the website for your viewing, purchase and/or sharing subject to these Terms and Conditions. Until a photo is claimed by a valid user, it is securely stored and encrypted. No one else will have access to your image unless you share the photo access codes, image or your User Account login and password with others. You are responsible for the security and confidentiality of the password and username you establish when you create your User Account.
You may share your photos online by providing a valid email address for the recipient. Lifetouch will forward your email containing a new access code to the photo(s) you wish to share, but will not send the photo files themselves. Individuals who receive your email will be required to register for a user account before they can view your photos. Lifetouch is not responsible for misdirected or undeliverable email addresses and will not notify you of delivery status.
For additional information regarding our privacy and security policies and procedures, please review our Privacy Statement.
Image Upload Option
You may use the Website to upload one or more of your own images to create photo products during a single product session. The following terms apply to your use of the image upload feature.
The images you upload will be available to you through this Website during a single product session only. To use the same or additional candid images to create subsequent products, you will have to upload those images again. Candid images will not be stored in your Lifetouch Photo Gifts account for future use and you will not have the ability to share your candid images through this Website.
The quality of your custom products will depend on the resolution of the images you upload, and the required resolution will vary based on product, cropping and print size. You will receive an error message if you attempt to build a product using an image which does not have sufficient resolution to meet our quality standards. If you receive this message, we recommend that you upload an image with higher resolution. However, if you choose to purchase an image after receiving this error message, the sale will be final.
You may NOT submit or upload any of the following material to this Website:
- Any threatening, obscene, pornographic or profane material or any other material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law.
- Any material that could infringe or violate the copyright, trademark, rights of privacy, publicity or other intellectual property right of any third party without the permission of the owner of these rights and of the persons (or their parents or legal guardians, where applicable) who are shown in the material.
Lifetouch will not be liable for the content of your image uploads or other submissions. By submitting photographs and other content to Lifetouch for the Service, you warrant and represent that you own all right, title and interest in all such material, or that you have obtained all rights and authorizations necessary from all parties having rights in such materials. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Lifetouch, its corporate affiliates and each of their employees, agents, representatives, licensors or business associates (the "Lifetouch Associates") from any liability, damages and expenses (including attorney fees) they may incur as a result of providing the Service and/or based on claims by third parties alleging copyright or trademark infringement, invasion of privacy or misappropriation of privacy or publicity rights relating to Your Content.
While Lifetouch is not responsible for the content of the submissions, Lifetouch reserves the right to reject or delete submissions that we, in our sole discretion, deem potentially abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws or otherwise unacceptable. Lifetouch may request confirmation of the copyright or trademark ownership from the submitter. Lifetouch reserves the right to suspend an order until such confirmation is received. If Lifetouch does not receive any such confirmation or if there are continued claims of copyright or trademark infringement, Lifetouch reserves the right to share certain account information with governmental organizations or other third parties. In the event of any such dispute, Lifetouch reserves the right to suspend your account access until the issue has been resolved. You acknowledge that any submission may be removed, published, copied, modified, transmitted and displayed by Lifetouch for the purposes of delivering the offered services.
Orders, Availability and Delivery
When you place an order for a photo gift through this website, our acceptance of your order occurs when your credit card is charged. Until then we reserve the right to cancel your order. Our ability to supply the selected products to you is subject to availability and we reserve the right to limit quantities of products we supply, to divide orders and fulfill partial orders; and to revise or terminate products and special offers. We will charge your credit card only to the extent that we are able to deliver the products to you as ordered.
We will do our best to deliver your purchases in a timely manner, but we cannot guarantee that there will be no delays in delivery, and we accept no liability or responsibility for delays caused by circumstances outside of our reasonable control.
Prices and Payments
Posted prices are inclusive of sales tax but do not include shipping and handling charges, which vary based on your location and the products selected. Prices are subject to change at any time.
Storage Policy and Photo Availability
Your initial access code will be valid for approximately ninety days after it is initially delivered to you. Once you use this access code to claim your photos, the access code will be invalid for any further use. Your photos will be available on this site for viewing and purchase for a limited amount of time. Once the offer period has ended, they will be permanently deleted.
You may cause your photos to be permanently deleted from your User Account at any time by either deleting the image from your image library or by sending a deletion request e-mail to Lifetouch@certifiedcustomercare.com.
Product Returns and Refund Policy
If you are not satisfied with the quality of any product you purchase on this website, simply return it within 30 days of purchase and we will either replace the product at no cost to you or refund the original purchase price.
