privacy policy:

 

Our Privacy Policy tells you what will happen to any personal data that you provide to us as a result of using this website. The information is written for the benefit of general visitors to the website, and for anyone using the contact form.

 

Personal Data You Provide
Your privacy is important. By providing personal information such as your name and e-mail address via the form on this website, you agree to me contacting you with regard to the information provided and answering your enquiry. The information provided on the Contact form will NOT be added to a mailing list or used for additional means.

 

A separate form on this website will give you an opportunity to opt-in to a mailing list or future email bulletins, also include a check box asking you for permission to add you to our mailing list. This is an opt-in mailing list only and your personal information will be used solely for that purpose.

 

How We Use Your Personal Data

The data you provide via this website is used to:

communicate with you, for example: we use contact details such as email address or phone number when responding to enquiries made via online form;

process any print ordering

provide you with any information by way of mailing list News or bulletins ONLY if you have separately opted in

Our “Lawful Reasons” For Processing Your Personal Data

The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over the  processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six “lawful reasons” we are relying on when we are processing your personal data:  we operate on the basis of “legitimate interest” when communicating with you electronically (e.g. when responding to your enquiry or processing a print order);  we operate on the basis of “consent” IF sending newsletters or bulletins (you won’t get sent a newsletter unless you have explicitly opted in to receive one)

 

How Long We Keep Personal Data
Personal data may be stored by the website for a period of up to 30 days after which time it is removed automatically.

 

Transfer of Personal Data

The personal data you supply will not be shared with anyone or any third party. An exception to this would be in the process of personal information for the purposes of ordering photography prints, and limited to the use of processing that order. The information needed for delivery of the prints, such as name and address, will form part of the ordering process with the relevant photo print lab, and the email address used to acknowledge receipt of such order.

 

Erasing of Data

If you wish to ensure that any past data provided is erased, such as an email address or contact details previously supplied, please inform us of the same, and this will be dealt with as soon as practicable.

 

Questions or Complaints
In the first instance we hope you will contact us directly with any questions or complaints (contact details are displayed prominently on this website). However, legal rights regarding privacy are the remit of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and you will find more information about how to complain here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/

 

This Privacy policy will be kept under review and changes made when deemed appropriate.
