We help you bring your photos to life. If you are a new snapper or a professional photographer, a proud parent or imaginable teenager, a passionate pet owner or an avid outdoor enthusiast, your privacy is important to us.
We want to help you tell your story of the people, places, and memories you cherish. We are dedicated to helping you turn your photos into beautiful, personal décor, photo books, mugs, prints, gifts, and more that you’ll be proud to share and can treasure for years to come. When you use Boots Photo products and services, we collect certain information about you and your online habits. The type of information we collect depends on the type of products and services you use. For example:

If you outline any issues and/or request our help with our surveys, we may reach out to you to resolve your concern.
Please note that any information you include in a message you post to any chat room, forum, or other public posting area is available to anyone with Internet access.

Boots Photo online services are for everyone except children under the age of 13, or 16 in the European Union (“EU”). Boots Photo is particularly sensitive to protecting information about children on the Internet; therefore, kids under 13, or 16 in the EU, are not eligible to use Boots Photo Services.
However, we encourage parents to use our Services as a family activity with their children and to carefully monitor any Internet activities (including use of the Boots Photo Services) engaged in by their kids.
We do not knowingly collect information from any child under the age of 13, or 16 in the EU, without parental consent. If we do receive such information, we delete it as soon as we discover it.
We use reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and administrative industry safeguards to protect information from unauthorized access, use, loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. We will make reasonable efforts to protect personal information stored on our servers from unauthorized access using commercially available computer security products (for example, firewalls), as well as carefully developed security procedures and practices. Notwithstanding our security safeguards, it is impossible to guarantee 100% security in all circumstances. If you have any questions about our security practices, you can contact us at the address listed below. Also, it is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account credentials and notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account.
If you are using a public computer (public library, school computer, etc.) or a shared computer (family computer, roommate’s computer, etc.), we strongly recommend that you sign out of your Boots Photo account and close your browser before getting up and moving away from the computer. This will prevent others from accessing your account and information.
Information that you provide during registration is available in your Boots Photo online account. To edit your information, you must enter your email address and password to access your account. You may edit your account information at any time by entering your login credentials.
We store your information as long as it is necessary to provide our products and services to you. Your information will be kept as long as you maintain Active Participation in the Services. Active Participation is defined as purchasing or ordering photo or video merchandise, including reprints and enlargements, through the Services at least once every 365 days. You can cancel or delete your Boots Photo account by contacting our Customer Support. If you request your account to be cancelled or deleted, we will satisfy your request within 30 days. If we require more time to process your request, we will notify you about the delay.
Information necessary for the purposes of maintaining business records regarding a deleted and cancelled account, including records of credit transactions and account ownership, will be retained in accordance with applicable law.
If you choose to provide us with your information as described in this Privacy Notice, we may transfer that information to affiliates, partners, or other third-parties, as described above, located outside of your home country, for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. If you are visiting from the EU or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from the United States (“US”) law, please note that you are transferring your information to the US, which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU. We utilize standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission to legitimize data transfers from the EU to the US and other countries.
With knowledge of these risks, by providing your personal information you understand: (i) your personal information will be used for the uses identified above in accordance with this Privacy Notice; and (ii) your personal information will be transferred to the US as indicated above.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits visitors to the Services who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of their personal information to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at the address mentioned below. We do not share your information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you consent to such disclosure, typically by “opting in” to receive information from a third-party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion. If you do ask us to share your information with a third-party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third-party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis.
For French residents only, you have the right to give directives relating to the disposal of your personal information after your death.
If you want to exercise one or more of the above rights, you can contact us at the address listed below.
Please note that we do not support “Do Not Track” browser settings and we do not currently participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks.
We store your information as long as it is necessary to provide our products and services and fulfill the transactions you requested. Typically, we keep your information as long as you maintain Active Participation in the Services. Projects you have created while not signed in to an account and projects you have purchased while signed in to an account will remain on our servers for as long as reasonably necessary for our business purposes. Where appropriate or legally required, we retain your information on our servers even after deletion of your Boots Photo account for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, enforcing our agreements, or as reasonably necessary for other business purposes.
A simple answer is “No”. Our Services have seals, buttons, and content links to other third-party websites (for example, Facebook, Pinterest, and Walgreens). If you leave the Boots Photo Services to visit the site of any third-party, you may be asked for your credit card or other information in order to purchase or use products and services offered. These companies have their own privacy and data collection practices. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third-party services or applications. We recommend carefully reviewing the user terms and Privacy Notice of each third-party service, website, and/or application prior to use.
We periodically update this Privacy Notice to account for changed legal and operational circumstances and to describe new features, products, or services, and how those changes affect our use of your information. We encourage you to review this Privacy Notice each time you visit the Services. If we are going to use information in a manner that is materially different from that stated at the time of collection or make any material changes in our privacy practices, we will notify you. We will post those changes through a prominent notice on our Services. If you do not agree to the changes made to this Privacy Notice, we recommend that you stop using our services.
