We at Mimosa Digital have a firm commitment to safeguarding the privacy of our customers. This page will inform you about our information gathering and dissemination practices for Mimosa Digital. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should contact


Your Private Photo Albums, Album Sharing, and Address Book
Mimosa Digital is committed to providing you with a safe and private environment to upload, share and print your photos. All of your photos are password protected and are not visible to others unless you explicitly share them. To invite visitors to see your photos, follow the instructions provided in the online album area. Mimosa Digital will send an email to your list of invitees containing the URL to your album. Please note that your invitees can then forward the email containing the URL to other parties, if they choose. The recipients of your album invitations will be required to sign in to view your album; and the email address your invitee provides will appear in your guestbook for that album (and, conversely, if you are invited to view an album, your email address will appear in the author's guestbook). If your invitee forwards your email invitation to another party, this other party's email address will appear in your guest book, as well. Mimosa Digital uses the email addresses provided (including those in your address book) only to facilitate your photo sharing activities and for no other purpose. Mimosa Digital will not use the addresses described in this section for any other purpose and will not disclose the addresses you provide to any third party.

Your Personal Information
Mimosa Digital only uses your personal information to conduct business with you. Your personally identifiable information will not be rented, sold or shared with any third party, except as described in this Privacy Statement or as otherwise agreed by you. Mimosa Digital may disclose information it has collected from any member of the Mimosa Digital Service and/or content any member has made available on the Mimosa Digital Service when it believes in good faith that the law or legal process requires it, or when it is necessary to do so to protect the rights or property of Mimosa Digital or others.

Mimosa Digital may change this privacy policy without notice from time to time. Please visit this page often for updates and changes. Regardless of later changes or updates, Mimosa Digital will not use your information in a new way without providing you with an opportunity to opt-out.

Also, if you have not already done so, please review the Terms of Service that govern your use of the Mimosa Digital Site.


Information You Explicitly Provide
In order to establish your account or to place any orders for prints or other products provided by Mimosa Digital, you will be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information to us, such as your name, mailing and email address, phone number, and a credit card number with an expiration date. We will use that information to send you our film mailers (if requested) and to process and communicate with you concerning any order you may submit. We may also ask you for similar information, and information about your digital equipment and practices, if you choose to attend an event, request a newsletter, enter a contest, fill out a customer survey or participate in a program. We may use this information to make improvements on our site, offer new products, and customize your experience on the Mimosa Digital Web site. In any event, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any other third parties without giving you the opportunity to opt-out, except as expressly described in the "Third Party Service Providers" section of this Privacy Statement.
We use aggregate non-personal information (i.e. information that does not include personally identifiable data) for statistical analysis of user behavior, product development, content improvement and marketing, promotional and advertising purposes. We may also make that aggregate non-personal information available to select third party partners.
