Welcome to pictureme.com.  This website is owned and operated by Lifetouch Portrait Studios Inc. (“Lifetouch”) dba PictureME Photography.  This Online Privacy Policy explains Lifetouch’s online information practices pertaining to this website and the choices you, as a visitor to this site, can make about the collection and use of your information.

What information is collected at pictureme.com? How is it used?

Your personal information.  At pictureme.com, we only collect personally identifiable information about you to the extent you specifically provide it to us. This includes, for example, the information you provide when you  place an order, register for a service, respond to a survey or enter a contest or sweepstakes online. We may also receive information from other companies. We use the information you share with us

  • to provide the products or services or benefits you request
  • to develop and improve our products and services
  • to improve the content of our site and its usefulness to you
  • for marketing and promotional purposes.

If you scheduled an appointment or were photographed by PictureME Photography within a retail store location such as a Wal-Mart Stores Inc. store location, we may share your personal information with the retailer, in which case the retailer’s use of your information will be governed by its own privacy policy.  The retailer’s privacy policy may be different from the terms described here, so we encourage you to review those terms carefully.   We may also share your information within Lifetouch’s corporate affiliates (the "Affiliated Companies"), and you may receive product and service information from any of them. Finally, we may share this information with third parties who provide support services to us or help us with our marketing programs. We do not allow our service providers to use or share your personal information for any purpose other than providing services on our behalf.  We may also provide this information as required by law.

In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which we may share or transfer the information in our databases, for example, to respond to judicial process, to comply with state, federal or local laws, to protect the security or integrity of our databases or Web site, to take precautions against liability, in the event of a corporate reorganization or, to the extent required by law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies.

Safeguarding information

Within the Affiliated Companies, we protect against unauthorized disclosures by limiting access to employees and contractors of the Affiliated Companies who need the information to do their jobs. We also give them clear guidelines for adhering to our confidentiality policies.

We limit the information we provide to outside companies to only the information we believe is appropriate to enable them to carry out their responsibilities under our contracts. We contractually require that the information provided be used only for the specifically authorized purpose and that its confidentiality be maintained.
