Photoweb, and its affiliated companies, cannot, thus, be held responsible for the content of those Sites.
Content Transmitted To or Through the Site and Services
Photoweb will use User Content to provide the Site and the Services to them. For example, it may be necessary to copy, display, change, transmit or distribute the User Content to ship the Products. The User grants Photoweb permission to do so free of charge since Photoweb uses the User Content to provide them with the Site and the Services. This permission is global and non-exclusive. Photoweb will store the User Content on its servers so that they are available to the User for later use. Thus, the User will be able, for example, to request reprints of previous orders or individual photos without having to download their Content again. This in no way affects the User right to terminate the use of our Services at any time. If that is the User will, Photoweb will remove the User Content in its entirety from its servers. Photoweb agrees that the use of this Content will be limited to the scope of the Services it provides. Photoweb agrees never to use this Content for commercial purposes, advertising or promotion of the Site and the Services to other people without the express written consent of the User.

Due to the evolving nature of the Application, Photoweb and/or its affiliated companies reserve the right to establish new limits or reservations on the use of the Services.

The User has the option to allow several third-party online services, such as network or social media sites (Facebook, Dropbox, Instagram, Google Photos, etc.), to be directly linked to their Piiics Application. The User will thus be able to import their images to Piiics via these sites and benefit from the Services.
As an exception to the consumer’s right of withdrawal due to the highly personalised nature of the Products, all sales are final from the moment the payment is made by the User. Thus, no refund can be made by Photoweb.
