Data protection regulations

We take data protection very seriously and will protect your personal data.

You can find information here on how we use your personal information. Please read this information carefully and also be aware of our General Terms and Conditions.

Our complete data processing procedures are subject to the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act.

The data protection regulations are followed both by us and our subcontractors (e.g. book binders, package delivery agents).

When placing an order with PhotoBookWorld, you will give personal details such as name, forename, address, e-mail address, telephone number and, possibly, your bank details. Your data is treated in confidence! The data is simply used so we can carry out our services in full, conclude our business and invoice you. Your confidential information will only be passed to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so or if passing them over would serve to secure the legitimate interests of PhotoBookWorld. We will only pass a minimal amount of your data to external companies if this is necessary for completing your order.

If making a payment by credit card or direct debit, PhotoBookWorld does not keep any customer or account details.

We will save your complete PhotoBookWorld file on an FTP server for the duration of production.

In order to make possible re-ordering easier, we will archive your complete file for 3 months.

PhotoBookWorld regularly checks the images uploaded to our server, and will not produce photobooks with illegal content or content that violates current German law. We reserve the right to pass the file involved and associated personal data to the authorities.

We will delete personal data immediately on the written request of the entitled person. In the case of files that are subject to a minimum period in storage due to legal stipulations

(e.g. for book-keeping), we will delete this directly the period expires.

These data protection regulations may be subject to revision, updating or amendment.
