Is Printed.com GDPR compliant?
What data does Printed.com collect about me?
Where is my data stored?
All data and artwork related to you and your account is stored in EU on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and data centres located in the UK, with the exception of some print products that you may order (Business Cards, Letterheads and Compliment Slips) which are stored on AWS servers in the US.
What happens to my artwork after I’ve ordered?
When artwork is uploaded to our site it goes through various automated processes before being printed. The original artwork is deleted immediately after we create a “print-ready” artwork file, but the “print-ready” artwork file is stored indefinitely for us to provide the service to you, for example to allow you to reorder.
Does the team at printed.com look at the content of the print files I send?
As a rule, Printed.com employees do not monitor or view your artwork. If your artwork is ready to print and doesn’t require intervention, then we won’t view your artwork until after it’s been printed. We will have to finish and pack your order so our production staff will need to handle any printed products, therefore have sight of your artwork.
Your information may be viewed where necessary to comply with our legal obligations. We also reserve the right to look at artwork supplied should we think it breaches any of our terms and conditions.
Do you send my details to third parties such as couriers?
Yes for couriers we share the delivery address of your order to allow us to deliver to your or your end customers.
Do you send my details to third parties such as printers?
We may disclose Non-Personal Data publicly and to third parties – for example, in public reports about artwork/photography usage, to partners under agreement with us, or as part of progress reports we may provide to users.
Artwork is shared with third party print providers as necessary to perform our contract with you, and based on our legitimate interests in order to provide the service.
We have our own policy and documentation that we would like you to sign as part of our supply chain - who do I speak to, to get this done?
I don’t want to receive any sort of marketing from Printed.com how do I make sure that happens?
Under GDPR you have to opt in to receiving this kind of material, if you haven’t done so you won’t receive it from us. We don’t want you to miss out on any of our special offers so we will make you aware if you’ve haven’t signed up for our ongoing communication, but the choice is of course yours.
If you not already a customer of Printed.com, when you join and register for an account, make sure that you do not check the “Printed.com will send you exclusive deals, inspiration, promotions and service updates via email. You can opt out of receiving these at any time in your account settings or directly from the marketing notifications.” checkbox, which is our marketing “opt in”.
If you have already opted in, you can either follow the “Unsubscribe” link in any email communication you have received or unsubscribe from the My Account > My Profile > Subscriptions area of the website.
How safe is my data?
Printed.com is committed to protecting the security of your Information and takes reasonable precautions to protect it. We use industry-standard encryption to protect your data in transit. This is commonly referred to as transport layer security (“TLS”) or secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology. Once we have received your information we will use strict procedures and security features in order to safeguard your data.

What happens if I close my account and then at a later date want to re-register?
