What information do we collect?
We may collect the following information:
Customer name, contact information including email address.
Preferences and interests (regarding site purchases) to enable us to update and inform our customers of new products and special offers, from time-to-time.
Customer information is only used for internal record keeping, occasional promo emails, updates and information we feel you may find of interest (by occasional, we mean occasional, as we also hate spam) using the email address provided. Also to enable us to develop future imagery/work that better tailors to our customer's needs; that targets and improves our customer service experience and interface. All information is stored carefully and securely in order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure.
Our website may contain external links to other sites that support Retrostockexpress/Kitschstock or provide print-on-demand services for our customers.
These links are to other, external companies and customers need to be aware that we have no control over these other companies.
Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any customer information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and, therefore, these sites are not governed in any way by this privacy statement. Caution should always be used when using sites external to Retrostockexpress.com/Kitschstock and all customers are recommended to study each site/company's privacy statement before providing personal details.
Control of personal information
We will not lease, sell or distribute personal information to third parties unless prior permission is granted or we are required to do so by law.

Please email for further information should you have any concerns. Should you believe that any of the information that we hold be incorrect, please contact us and we will be happy to update/correct this information accordingly.

By paying for your image/s and downloading them you fully accept all our terms and conditions, licensing information/agreement, without exception. No returns, or refunds, are acceptable once payment is completed, so we urge our customers to be sure that the image/s that they purchase are the ones that they intended to purchase, as accidents cannot usually be rectified after to event.

Although we are located in the UK, all images are priced in US Dollars, being a far more universal currency. VAT (tax) is only payable, and added onto items purchased by companies or individuals located within the UK. All prices are, therefore, Tax-Free when purchased from a location outside the United Kingdom, where no additional tax supplement is required or added by us. It is important to ensure that, whilst we do not charge any taxes on images purchased from outside the UK, you ensure that any/all taxes due or required to be paid locally are met in full, by you. Prices may change and offers may be withdrawn at any time, without prior notice. Prices displayed are ex VAT, where applicable.
We feature images and products on our website which have been carefully selected or created specially for our customers. We reserve the right to change or modify images as we need to, from time-to-time. While we try not to cause any inconvenience, should this be a problem please contact us immediately, stating the issue and the image/s ID/s involved, and we try to resolve the matter swiftly for you. Please note that downloads are available for a period of 12 months after purchase. For security reasons each image has a maximum download of 20 times once purchased; we also limit the number of images allowed to be purchased in any given 24 hour period to a maximum of 30. Should more images be required within 24 hours a special agreement can be obtained - in such a case please contact us directly for help.
We reserve the right to change, modify, update and otherwise develop the website and the information and imagery contained within, without prior notice.
