Customers are both responsible and liable for the images they upload. One must have the appropriate permission or the copyright to order from us. The copyright owner of a photograph is typically the only person that can make a "derivative work", such as an oil painting or a print on canvas from that photograph.
Copyright is created at the moment the photograph is taken and lasts the life time of the photographer plus 70 years. Please note that if you have purchased a photo from a photographer this does not automatically give you the right to have it reproduced, unless this is clearly stated in your purchase contract of the photograph.
Failure to ensure that the copyright laws are kept may result in civil or criminal penalties
If you would like to reproduce a photo that was not taken by yourself please contact the photographer to ensure you have the correct permissions to order from us.
PaintOurLives Art Studio will keep all the information that our customers provide about themselves, and will not share it with any third party (except to the extent needed to complete the order). PaintOurLives Art Studio will only keep the customer's name, address and email. We do not keep your credit-card information. All payments are made on the PayPal or Skrill's gateways, which are both secured and famous for their antifraud systems.
Although PaintOurLives Art Studio is unable to control all of the images that our customers upload to the website we can and will refuse to make a painting from any photo that might harm or offend individuals of other religions or races including photos in which animals are harmed or hunted. Again, customers are both responsible and liable for the images they upload.
PaintOurLives Art Studio reserves the right to change, add or remove any portion of these terms and conditions of use, in whole or in part, at any time. Changes in the terms and conditions of use will be effective when posted. You agree to review these terms and conditions of use periodically to make yourself aware of any changes. Your continued use of this website after any changes to these terms and conditions of use are considered acceptance of those changes.
