You can access our website without subscribing to marketing communications. Just leave the tick box unticked when you’re signing up.
If you have left this box unticked you will not receive information on our exciting discounts, offers, and promotions. You will still get order notifications, and account specific communications (request password change / do you need a hand emails, as examples), but that’s all.
We often find that parents like to order pictures from their Child’s time at a school, especially when the child is leaving for the next stage of their education, or for special events such as big birthdays; we like to stay in touch occasionally by email to let you know where to find them should you ever want to order. We also have exclusive offers, discounts and services we think you might be interested in. If you’ve given us permission, we’ll email you so you’re aware of what we’re offering.
We won’t market you by post or call you, we only send emails and/or SMS.

Then your online account will remain active for up to five years, so you can access and order images whenever you wish.
