Terms of Use

We at Lil’ Duck Duck take copyright ownership very seriously (the intellectual property rights of photographers, studios, etc.). You must have permission to use your pictures and be the legal parent or guardian, of the child(ren) whose photos you submit if applicable. We reserve the right to follow-up and confirm these permissions by asking for a signed reprinting release or copy of a legally binding contract from the owner of the photo. If you have any questions about these terms of use or our privacy policy, please contact our Customer Service department and we will be happy to explain in detail any part of these terms you wish. Thank you for your patronage and we hope you enjoy your cards as we enjoy making them.

Please note that we use only stock photos & sample ‘placeholder’ information for the examples on our site – your submitted photos & personal information (address, phone number, etc) are not used for your privacy.
