PRIVACY POLICY


Welcome to my privacy policy which is up to date as at January 2019.   Under this policy, you can use this website without needing to provide any personal data.  However, if you wish to purchase any of my services (i.e weddings / photoshoots etc) then I will need to process some necessary personal data from you, such as name, address, phone number and email.  This policy explains why I collect personal information about you, how I use that information and how I keep it secure.  The policy may change from time to time and by using my website, you are agreeing to be bound by that policy.


WHO IS COLLECTING AND ACCESSING THE INFORMATION?

I, Susan B Photography am the sole controller of any data that passes through my website.  I am the only person who will have access to this information and :

  • I will not sell or rent your information to any third parties;

WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?
I obtain information through my website in three ways - anonymously, directly or by a third party.  


Anonymously - the information I collect may include your name, address, whether you are using a computer or tablet or phone, whereabouts you are located, which website pages are accessed and how long you may spend browsing my page


Directly - the direct information I collect is when you are enquiring about purchasing one of my photoshoots or wedding packages.  This will be your name, address, phone number, email address and details about your event


Third Party - If you purchase a photoshoot or wedding package from me using an online payment method, your card information is not held by me but is collected by a third party payment processor who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of debit/credit card transactions.  The only information I receive from the third party are notifications that a transaction has taken place with the name of the payee, the date and the amount of the
transaction.

HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION USED?
I will hold your personal information on my systems for as long as it is necessary for the relevant duration of the photoshoot/wedding, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with me.  Any information you provide will be used to:

DIRECT MARKETING
I do not supply a newsletter or offer any subscriptions and do not generate bulk or direct mail shots for marketing.  If I contact you, it will be about an enquiry you have made or for any services (i.e weddings / photoshoots) that we have agreed upon.  All communications will be sent directly from me to you.  

SECURITY PRECAUTIONS 
When you provide any personal information, I take the necessary steps to ensure that it is stored securely to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of any information.  Any information provided over the internet can never be guaranteed 100% secure.  As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot not guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk.
