13. All MSP Photography images are sent after capture from our franchises to our secure dedicated production facility. There, the images are stored on servers where physical access is restricted to MSP Photography IT staff, and electronic access is controlled by industry standard authentication controls. The production facility network is protected from unauthorised outside access by enterprise grade firewalls and virus protection. The portrait download site is housed in this same facility.

Portraits on our download site are protected by a random character passcode. Provided that the passcode and QR code, which is printed on the portrait itself and delivered to the family via the school, is kept in a secure place by the customer, and these codes are not shared online or otherwise, the digital portrait image will be only accessible online by the customer.
For information on image security at the franchise, please contact your local MSP Photography team.

18. If you are concerned with the way your personal information is being handled you should contact us. If your personal information has not been handled in an appropriate way, we will take steps to remedy your concerns in a reasonable time.
