We may share your personal information with other third parties to help us fulfil your order including photograph processing and lab fulfilment services, financial institutions, processors, payment card association and other entities that are part of the payment and transfer process.  We may share parents name and postal address only if the order has arrived late and request it to be posted to their home address.

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is necessary to prevent fraud or Cyber Crime or to protect the site or the rights, property or personal safety of any person.


Payment Processing


When purchasing your image(s) online we use third parties. Purplepear Photography do not keep any credit card information. 

Payment processing is solely controlled by PayPal; a commonly used, secure and trusted gateway provider.

Payments made through our Third-Party gateway provider (such as PayPal), as indicated on the payment screen. You will provide credit or debit card information directly to that gateway provider which operates a secure server to process payment details, encrypting your credit or debit card information and authorising payment.

Information which you supply to the gateway provider is not within our control and is subject to the gateway provider`s own privacy policy and terms and conditions.




While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by Purplepear Photography reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

We take appropriate technical measures to guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data.
