Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy for Buying Print online at Print Buying Direct

Please be assured that Print Buying Direct uses all reasonable efforts to protect the privacy of its online visitors. As most web sites do, we track the total number of visitors to our site on an anonymous aggregate basis. Printbuyingdirect only gathers personally identifiable data when voluntarily submitted by a web site visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a request for information or to get feedback on the site. 
Your information will not be sold or transferred to third parties without your consent. By submitting your information on our Site, you consent to the use of that information in accordance with this privacy policy. 

Password protection

Sensitive information is always stored under a password, thus adding an additional layer of security. When you set up an account with Printbuyingdirect, you choose your own password for the account. This password is encrypted which means that even we cannot read your password, so you control who has access to your account. You may change your password at any time. 

Credit card information is never stored with your account at Printbuyingdirect. It will need to be entered each time you re-order, but we believe the security issue outweighs any minor inconvenience. 

Security of information

On receiving an order, we shall send you an email to confirm the order. We shall also send you an email as soon as the order is dispatched. This will not only keep you informed of your order's progress, but will also alert you if someone is using your account or computer without your permission. If you receive a confirmation for an order you did not place, please Email us immediately at Because the Internet infrastructure is global and it is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take, the information you provide may be transferred temporarily via a route which takes it outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and us. By submitting your information, you consent to this transfer. Although Printbuyingdirect uses all reasonable efforts to keep the details of your order and payment secure, we will not be liable for unauthorised access to information supplied by you unless such access arises as a result of our negligence. 

Credit card issue guarantees

Just like in the physical world, credit card purchases are insured through your credit card company over the internet. This final layer of protection from your credit card company limits your liability in the case of fraud and acts as a safety net for everyone doing electronic commerce over the internet. Typically, debit cards are treated differently than credit cards so you should check with your bank. Also, see your credit card company for more information. 

Sharing of information

Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private. 

The following describes just some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed:

  • Our Suppliers
    We engage other businesses to perform functions on our behalf to fulfil orders, deliver goods, send post and email, insert advertisements, analyse data, provide marketing assistance, provide additional product services, process credit card payments and provide customer service. We give these suppliers access to certain personal information needed to enable them to perform their respective functions on our behalf, but we do not allow them to use your information for other purposes.

  • Promotional Offers
    Sometimes we send promotional materials for third parties via email or post to select groups of customers. If you do not want to receive such offers, please sign on to and make the change under the "My Account" link/"Special Offers". Alternatively, you may let us know by sending an email to

  • Business Transfers
    As we continue to grow our business, we might sell or buy companies or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Printbuyingdirect, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, or Printbuyingdirect ‘s web business is acquired, customer information will be transferred.

  • Legal Requirements
    We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Printbuyingdirect, our users, or others. This may also include sharing information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
