Terms and Conditions - PosterJack

OUR SUMMARY (So you don't have to read the whole legal document...unless you want to!)

  1. Posterjack respects your ownership rights to your photos and images. We will only use your images to create custom photo art for you. If we have a great idea to use your images for any other purpose(such as a marketing campaign), we will contact you first for permission.
  2. Posterjack respects copyright laws. With that said, it is impossible for us to check the ownership of every image, so the onus rests completely with you to obey the law. Please don't steal other peoples work!
  3. Your uploaded photos and images are stored on a secure server. We hold on to them for 6 weeks in case reprints are required. Thereafter they are deleted from our server, but will still be backed up "offline" in a secure storage facility for those rare cases.
