Privacy Policy of Ifolor Oy, Kerava (Finland)

The ifolor team is delighted to be the chosen one to process your photos. Your satisfaction is our top priority. You can be assured that your photos and personal data will be handled according to data protection acts. This document explains what personal data (i.e., information related to identified or identifiable persons) will be collected from your orders, and how these are processed and used.

1. Collection of personal data

The collection and processing of  data will insofar only be performed when serving the professional processing of your order and the maintenance of the customer relationship. Your data is only used for the purpose for which it was collected and to protect our own legitimate business interests, in accordance with the relevant valid data protection regulations. 

The order software contacts our servers for various reasons. This is necessary, for example, for requesting and updating price information or if an order is placed. Access data is then temporarily saved on our servers, such as current IP address of your access and date and duration of  your visit. This data is deleted no later than in 30 days.

Use and transfer of personal data
We handle your data confidentially as a matter of principle and do not pass them on to third party processors. However, we reserve the possibility to have the data processed by third parties in Switzerland or in EU countries, if so required for the operational processing of orders. In such case, data protection will be ensured by compliance with the privacy protection laws applicable in Switzerland, the EU and in each such country, and by corresponding contracts with our suppliers. Your image data will be automatically deleted no later than 30 days from completion of your orders.

The electronic payment process is handled by a certified payment service provider Datatrans AG Zürich. Payment information is transmitted directly to the payment service provider and stored there for a limited amount of time for payment processing and for possible complaints or credits. This does not apply to payment by invoice.

To improve what we offer, particular events, such as cancellations of order processes, are included in our order software. The events which are recorded are pseudonymised and transferred to Webtrekk GmbH Robert-Koch-Platz 4, 10115 Berlin, Germany for a statistical analysis (see also:
The legal basis is our legitimate interest, Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR, to provide you with a smooth order process and to make our website more user-friendly and effective overall.
The applicable Webtrekk Privacy Policy can be found at
You can deactivate the counting and transfer of events at any time.

There is also a campaign evaluation in the order software, using which we can recognise how customers were won. All campaign evaluation data is pseudonymised and statistically evaluated by Adjust GmbH. You can deactivate this at any time. Naturally, we also take the global settings on your device into account.

Ifolor seeks to design the order software process as user friendly and efficient as possible. To this end, the order software requests access to the customer's address book so that personal contacts easily can be used as shipping addresses. This information is not used for any other purposes.

You can transfer image files to us from third-party online services such as Google Photos, not just from your own devices. You do not give us access to your log-in data for these services or to any other data on these services. The application is only granted access to the approved data and images. Images you choose to use within your project will be copied and stored within the app.
To access external third-party online services, you need to link to the respective service from within the app. The app then receives an access permission that is limited to the app and your account with the service provider. The access permission is stored in the app until you log out of the respective service in the app. Alternatively, you can usually terminate the access permission on the website of the respective third-party online service.

Ifolor's customer records only store customer information that the person concerned has provided to Ifolor at the time of order or later. For example, as a subscriber of our newsletter, our technical service provider is Selligent. Information may be disclosed for legitimate use, such as direct marketing. You may prohibit processing and transfer of your information for marketing purposes, as well as inspect your information at any time.

Safety of data and communication
Our database containing your personal data is protected at all times by appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent its loss and abuse. It is stored in a safe operational environment which is not accessible to the public.

While your personal data are being transmitted under certain circumstances, e. g. during log-in and payment processes, they are encrypted by use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This means that a state-of-the-art encryption method applies to the communication between your computer and Ifolor’s servers, provided that your browser supports the SSL (https) technology.

2. Information and Rectification
