ME Group Booth terms of use

In these terms and conditions and in the privacy statement set out below, ME Group International plc is referred to as ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’.

Below are set out the terms and conditions applicable to use by a customer (referred to as ‘you’, and ‘your’) who uses any of our photo booths (a ‘Photobooth’). By using a Photobooth, you will be deemed to accept these terms and conditions.

You will not use a Photobooth for (i) any unlawful purpose, or (ii) any purposes unconnected with the taking of your photograph by the Photobooth.

In the rare cases of the Photobooth producing photographs that are not of satisfactory quality, our maximum liability, and your sole remedy, for defective products sold by a Photobooth, whether such liability is in contract, negligence (or delict in Scotland), statute or otherwise at law is as follows.

You will be entitled to a refund of the price of the photos. To seek a refund, you may contact us by:

(i) writing to our Customer Service Department, ME Group International plc, Unit 3B Blenheim Road, Epsom KT19 9AP; or
(ii) emailing info@me-group.com; or
(iii) phoning 0800 035 6600.

We will normally issue a full refund for a single set of photographs on a ‘no-quibble’ basis but reserves the right to you to send in the photographs to support the claim for a single set refund, multiple purchases or if we have previously paid you a refund. This is to enable us to assess the alleged problems with the photographs. Where we exercise this right, we will also refund to you the cost of sending us the photographs by ordinary first-class post, provided we decide that a refund is due on the photographs.

Where you phone our call centre, we may ask you to write in if we have any difficulty understanding you, so we can make sure the refund is issued correctly.

In no event will we have any liability whatsoever for any indirect or consequential loss incurred by you or anyone for whom you may be acting howsoever that loss may be caused and regardless of whether we have or are deemed to have any knowledge that non-production of a photograph or a defect or problem with any photograph would or is likely to give rise to such loss. Non-exhaustive examples of such indirect losses include (i) travel fares incurred by you for the purpose of going elsewhere to have your photos taken, (ii) the cost of someone else taking the photos, and (iii) cancellation of, or changes to, trips of any kind.

None of the above in any way affects our liability for death or personal injury due to its negligence, or any other liability that the law prevents us from limiting or excluding.

Where you deal as a consumer, none of the above affects your statutory rights.

These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of England and Wales.

We respect people’s right to privacy, and we comply with our obligations under relevant data protection laws. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race or ethnic origin, religion, or medical conditions, without your prior express consent.

We may disclose your personal information, without notice, only if we are required to do so by law or if we believe in good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or with legal process served on us; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our customers or the public.

We secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
