We care about and respect your privacy. For this reason, we only collect and use your personal data only as is necessary for us to deliver to you our professional services.

Photography Firms privacy policy is compliant with GDPR regulations. Your personal data includes information such as

Your Name & Address
Telephone number
Date of birth
Email address
Other data collected that could directly or indirectly identify you

Our Privacy Policy is here so that you know and understand how and what data we collect, and how and why we use that data. It also describes options we provide for you to access, update or otherwise take control of your personal data that we process. If at any time you have questions about our practices or any of your rights described below, you may reach our Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) by contacting us at info@photographyfirm.co.uk. Information we collect:

We collect information to provide the best possible experience when you use our Services. Much of what you consider personal data is collected directly from you when you: 1. Purchase any of our Services (e.g.: billing information, including name, address); 2. request a quotation or more information about our services; 3. complete contact or chat forms via our website, or send us an email.

How we use information

We believe in limiting the amount of data we collect, and the use and purpose of that data to only:

1 Data which we need to support the service we offer you
2 Data necessary to deliver the services you have requested
3 Data we might be required or permitted to keep for legal compliance or other lawful purposes

We only share your personal data as necessary for any third party to provide the services as requested or as needed on our behalf (such as processing payments or sending files via online transfer). These third parties are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilising, sharing or retaining your personal data for any purpose other than as they have been specifically contracted for.

How we secure, store, and retain your data

We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored, including utilisation of encryption where appropriate. We retain personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the Services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of legitimate legal or business purposes.

How you can access, update or delete your data

To easily access, update or delete, your personal data (where available), please contact us by one of the methods described in the “Contact Us” section below. If you make a request to delete your personal data and that data is necessary for the products or services you have purchased, the request will be honoured only to the extent it is no longer necessary for any Services purchased or required for our legitimate business purposes or legal or contractual record keeping requirements.

Changes in our Privacy Policy: We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to this Privacy Policy and any other places we deem appropriate, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page, at least thirty (30) days prior to the implementation of the changes.
