What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect you email and name when you purchase a picture. This is for validation of taxes and so forth. The seller/vendors as you may call them do not get this information. That is for your protection as a buyer. As a seller/vendor we collect a little more information for the same purpose. As a seller/vendor taxes will be handled by you from your PayPal information. So make sure to file your taxes and we look forward to many years working with you
