Depending on your ISP contract you may incur communication or connection charges during the upload. After your order is submitted the credit / debit card payment will be authorized by WorldPay.

SERVICE QUALITY – DIGITAL
Your pictures will be printed on high quality digital processing equipment. As with all digital pictures, the quality of the print depends on the amount of data (number of pixels) in the original image. If you have used a low quality picture or if you have zoomed in or cropped too much, the software will have warned you that the resulting prints may be of bad output quality. Despite these warnings we do let you order the print. Any queries or complaints should be emailed to support@kristal–photos.com, or write to Kristal Digital Imaging centre, 7 Castle Street, Kingston KT1 1ST. Please include your order number (shown in the acknowledgement email and the completed order list) in any correspondence.
SERVICE QUALITY – FILM
It is impossible for the Company to assess the value of originals and unprocessed film supplied by the customer and the charges made for our services do not reflect or incorporate unlimited liability. Customers should insure work of special value and advise us accordingly. All orders for processing and printing are accepted on the basis that their value does not exceed the cost of equivalent new unprocessed material. In the unlikely event of loss or damage, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, liability is limited to the cost of an equivalent amount of unexposed film and refund of any processing charges paid.
